The highly popular Fish'n Chick'n concept of retail outlets is the largest of its kind in the UK and is part of the very progressive Chesterford Group - noted for its pioneering standards of staff training and attention to health and safety issues. All of which have now been even further enhanced by the Testo Cooking Oil Tester.

The Group currently has 30 bright and smart sites across the South and South East of the country - plus an exciting franchise venture with the Haven Holiday leisure brand that has seen them open two stores this year already. They pride themselves on complete control of every aspect of their operation and the Testo 270 now allows them to further enhance the consistency of their product across their entire estate through groundbreaking technology.

The Testo 270 technology from this respected German company features a smart hand held and easy to use thermometer measures oil temperature and Total Polar Materials (TPM), the chemical products which emerge during the frying process such as free fatty acids and mono/di-glycerides. The clear and easy to read display indicates the oil temperature, whilst the distinctive "traffic light" alarm function shows if TPM quality limit values are met. Quick adjustments, if necessary, can then be made to ensure compliance with BS EN ISO 8420:2002 standards. The 270 Set consists of clear instructions, dishwasher proof TopSafe protection case, hand strap, reference oil and batteries in a high-grade aluminium case. The measuring range is 0.5 to 40% TPM and accuracy is +/- 2.0% TPM (+40 to +190º) and +/- 1 C/ ºF.

All of which adds up to words of praise from Chesterford Director James Lipscombe
" It's a really clever concept product which gives us peace of mind and confidence knowing that our customers are getting the best quality possible product cooked in the best quality oil. Whereas previously it was a case of human judgment and experience to judge the quality of the oil now the excellent Testo product enables us to operate a tight oil management system which allows our manangement the peace of mind that they are cooking in the right quality oil. We reap the core twin benefits of the healthiest possible food with minimum wastage of oil and I can see that this technology will become an integral part of our working systems for many years to come"
