Comments about Imperial 40 Lb Commercial Gas Fryer:

this fryer is sitting next to a 20 year old pitco fryer which works great. The tank leaked in 3 years and is supposed to be prorated for 5 years. After contacting imperial they said they could send a replacement tank and put that in for $700. That is not pro rating, that is ripping off the customer. LP

Comments about Imperial 40 Lb Commercial Gas Fryer:

I've had this for two years now and the thermostats have broken at least four times. I have easily payed over the cost of this thing in the cost of repairing it. Get a better quality one if you are looking around.

  • Q:

    I have 2 Imperial natural gas fryers and need a 3rd. The model # of my other two is IFSSP-240. Most of what I see just has 40 I assume for 40 lbs. What does my model # mean? Is this really the same product as what I have?

    • A:

      Yes, 40lb meaning is oil capacitance for IFS-40 model (40 lbs). But IFSSP-240 have doubled capacitance, 2(x)40 lbs

    • A:

      Yes, if you are just covering the top of the fryer you can use a cover. I would not cover it like a BBQ.

    • A:

      This could be due to multiple things: defective thermopile, safety valve, hi limit etc. I would advise you to have a service tech look at your fryer to verify the problem. Once you know what part(s) you need you can call our sales team at 1.888.388.6372.
