Improve the quality of fried food and reduce cooking oil costs with the Testo 270

Optimising the life of cooking oil has a direct influence, not only on the quality of the fried food, but also on costs. Over-used oil has a negative effect on the taste of the food. However, if the oil is changed too soon, unnecessary costs are incurred.

The new Testo 270 Cooking Oil Tester, allows you to determine the optimum time to change cooking oil by quickly and easily measuring Total Polar Materials (TPM). An accurate TPM measurement means that oil can be used until the legal or individually set guideline value is reached.


The Testo 270 offers a host of features that make it exceptionally effective in day to day applications.

Automatic final value recognition gives an audible signal after approximately 20 seconds and displays the final TPM content of the analysed oil as a percentage in the backlit display. In addition, an alarm bar based on the red/amber/green, traffic light principle shows, at a glance, the status of the cooking oil. The Testo 270 also has a temperature warning function, which shows when the oil has reached a temperature of over 190 °C during measurement. An extra short sensor allows for easy measurement, even in a small quantity of oil such as shallow fryers. The sensor itself is embedded in metal and laminated with a protective layer, enabling the instrument to be easily cleaned. The housing of the Testo 270 is designed to be robust, ergonomic and watertight, with a removable and dishwasher-safe protective case.


The Testo 270 offers two options for calibration and adjustment. The most exact variant is reached using a reference i.e. oil for which the exact TPM content is already known. Another method (and one often used in practice), is an adjustment on-site with the user’s own, unused oil. The starting TPM value can be easily determined using the Testo 270. Quick checks can always be carried out when the oil is changed.
