The Testo 270 Cooking Oil Tester – Because Every Drop Is Precious

Fried foods taste good and are popular all over the world. In order to ensure the delicious specialities can still be enjoyed with no regrets, a cooking oil test has to be carried out regularly. This is the only way to ensure that the oil is still good and the quality of the fried product is perfect.

The testo 270 cooking oil tester carries out this task with just as much speed as precision. It measures the so-called Total Polar Materials (TPM) component in the oil. TPM occur during frying and are a reliable indicator for the quality of the oil.

The testo 270 cooking oil measuring device offers you the following:

  • Intuitive alarm notification via illuminated colour display based on the traffic light principle
  • Ergonomic design for safe handling (sufficient distance from the hot oil)
  • Washable under running water
  • Certified according to HACCP International and NSF

The right cooking oil tester

In contrast to a cooking oil test strip, measurement using a cooking oil tester is more intuitive and reliable, above all providing reproducible, comparable measuring values. A dye is applied to a cooking oil test strip and this changes colour accordingly in contact with the oil. Comparison with a table enables you to know how the quality of the oil is doing. However, because cooking oil strips measure the free fatty acid content and this varies during frying, caution must be exercised here.

How do I test frying oil with the testo 270?

The frying oil test is extremely easy with the testo 270 cooking oil tester:

  • Remove the fried product and wait until there are no more bubbles visible in the oil.
  • Switch on the cooking oil tester.
  • Immerse the cooking oil tester in the hot oil and measure.
  • Read off the TPM value – job done.
