Any foodservice business with a commercial fryer knows that oil is a major expense. Rather than completely change and renew oil on a regular basis, investing in a high quality oil filtration system will not only provide consistent professional results but can also make sound financial sense.
By rejuvenating and filtering used oil, the life span is prolonged and the usability extended as well as offering the potential to produce better tasting foods and make substantial savings in the long run.
Vito Oil Filtration
A major driving force in the oil filtration market, Vito oil filtration systems have quickly established themselves as a force to be reckoned with. Robustly manufactured and undeniably effective, the units are designed with ease of use in mind. Hand held and compact yet delivering massive performance, oil filtration on a commercial scale has never been easier.
Benefits of Choosing Vito
Vito filtration systems effectively remove micro-particles as small as 5µm for cleaner, better tasting oil. There’s no need to wait till the end of service to attend to filtration; the Vito series can be used between operations if necessary with no need to cool the oil.
Maintaining frying oil for longer Vito reduces overall consumption, saving up to 50% on total oil costs when compared to units without filtration. Not only can you save money on the quantity of oil required but also reduce the time spent cleaning, limit the cost of storing replacement oil and reduce the outlay of safely disposing of used oil.
The Vito range consists of versatile hand held units designed to work with all commercial fryers. This makes them perfect for use in any foodservice business regardless of the brand or model of existing frying equipment. Even if you replace your fryer at some point in the future, Vito will remain relevant and ready to facilitate savings.
A choice of models tailored to increasing demands is available. The Vito 30 is suitable for fryers up to 12 litres, the Vito 50 dealing with up to 20 litres of oil and the Vito 80 up to 45 litres.
Quick, simple, safe to use and you can make savings – what’s not to love!
Top Tip: The Vito filtration system is built to last. When buying, if you’re planning on expanding in the future, invest in an appropriate model to meet anticipated demands. By considering the projected growth of the business you ensure you won’t need to fork out for a replacement when requirements increase, even when your business model and frying equipment is changing.
All Vito oil filtration systems will deliver monetary savings, the total generally being dependant on the model used and the frequency of filtration. As an example we looked at the Vito 50; a mid- size model suitable for fryers up to 20 litre oil capacity.

Not Just a Standalone Solution
While Vito certainly excels when going solo, it doesn’t have to be used as a standalone solution. It can also be utilised in addition to inbuilt fryer filtration as put into action by Burger King, with the aim of further enhancing potential savings. Recording an increase in monetary savings Burger King operated Vito as ‘a complimentary process’, using integral fryer systems at night and the Vito 80 for morning filtration. When combining filtration methods, fryer oil lasted on average an additional 2.5 - 3 days longer once Vito was introduced. Over the course of a year those few extra days soon mount up to a considerable saving. (Source: information provided by Vito)
