left switch to operate the left pot and the right switch to operate the right pot.

the oil management  
system is optional. All

oil management  
The KFC-1 SMS Cooking Computer is designed to control either single or  
multiple cooking cycles. The computer has 10 product buttons, which can be  
individually programmed with up to 10 cooking intervals, three pre-alarms, and  
straight or flex time for each product. The KFC-1 SMS can track the number of  
heads cooked by the fryer and calculate recovery time. Also, the KFC-1 SMS  
can be programmed to calculate recovery time and the number of cook cycles  
since the last filtering. It is used on Frymaster KJ3FC, KSCF18G, and

It is designed to operate in both full-pot and split-pot fryers. The KFC-1 SMS also has shortening  
management programming and an internal real time clock.  
If power outages of less than 5 seconds occur, KFC-1 SMS computers will automatically return to  
current operational status once power is restored. If the computer fails to return to the current  
operation when power is restored, reset the computer by unplugging the fryer from the power  
source. The computer should reset when the fryer is plugged back in, and this, many times,  
eliminates costly, unneeded service calls.
