The Testo 270 Oil Tester allows you to determine within seconds whether cooking oil needs to be changed. To do so, it measures the ‘Total Polar Material’ (TPM) content in the oil, which is an indicator of its quality. It will then provide you with a reading and, based on the colour of the screen display (green, amber or red), you will know the current state of the oil.
Green - TPM content is good ; Amber - TPM value will need changing soon ; Red - TPM value has exceeded safe amount
This saves you from changing the cooking oil more frequently than is necessary, allowing you to benefit from the associated cost savings (up to 20%).
For maximum efficiency the capacitive oil sensor makes it possible to carry out back-to-back measurements in hot oil without needing to wait for the cooking oil tester to cool down.
The Oil Tester is extremely robust with a fibreglass housing that is impact-resistant. The oil sensor is embedded in metal and is therefore break-proof. In compliance with protection class IP 65, it is protected against water jets and can be washed under running water.
The Testo 270 is safe to operate - users are protected from the heat of the cooking oil as a result of the measuring instrument`s ergonomic design.
The Cooking Oil Tester is supplied in a case, with reference oil, a short set of instructions, a full instruction manual and training card, together with calibration protocols and batteries.
