How does it work?
It reacts with degradation products in the oil, which themselves speed up degradation. Without the filter, once oil starts to break down it quickly deteriorates.
What’s it made of?
It’s made of a cement-like mortar that feels ceramic to touch.
What happened to the waffle-shaped brick?
We discontinued this because of manufacturing and usage concerns. After thorough testing, we introduced our new and improved filter earlier this year.
How has the foaming issue been sorted?
We’ve made changes to the way the filter is manufactured, as well as filter bags and a metal case, which helps stop foaming.
Is this proven to be safe and non-toxic?
Yes, FriPura has been extensively tested in the lab and real-world situations and been found to be safe for use.
How long will my oil last?
As a guideline, the life of your oil will at least double using a FriPura filter. How much will I save? Typically, you’ll save around ⅓ of your current oil cost.
How do I dispose of the used FriPura filter?
Just throw it in your general waste. Easy.
How do I know when my oil is spent?
The best way to check the degradation of your oil is with Total Polar Meters or Free Fatty Acid litmus papers.
If you don’t have these, you should check the look and smell of the oil, and the appearance and quality of food coming out of the fryer.
When your oil is old, your food comes out with uneven browning. With the FriPura filter, even if the oil looks dark the food will still be a nice even colour.
Is this anything like FairyDust, Magnasol or FryLo?
No, there’s nothing else like this on the market. FairyDust, Magnesol and Frylo are trying to tackle the same problem as FriPura, but their methods are much more time consuming and costly.
We see this as a no-brainer.
