Description / Abstract:

These requirements cover portable electric household skillets and other frying-type appliances, rated at 125 V or less, for use in ordinary locations in accordance with the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70.

Frying-type appliances in this standard include frying-pans, sauce-pans, griddles, corn poppers, deep fryers, oil fondues, low temperature fondues, tempuras, woks, waffle makers, sandwich makers, contact grills, and other similar appliances which may or may not be thermostatically controlled.

These requirements do not cover skillets or frying-type appliances with marked capacities of more than 5.3 quarts (5 liters) of cooking oil.

These requirements do not cover skillets or frying-type appliances intended for outdoor use, warming trays, or appliances that are covered in individual requirements that are separate from this standard.

In the following text, a requirement which applies to one type of equipment coming within its scope (skillet, waffle-maker, and the like) will be so identified by a specific reference in that requirement to the type of equipment involved. In the absence of such specific reference or if the term ²appliance² is employed, it is to be understood that the requirement applies to all of the types of equipment covered by the standard.

A heating appliance covered by this Standard and intended to cook with oil to a depth greater than 0.5 inches (13 mm) during normal operation shall be subjected to the additional requirements for Deep Fryers / Cooker Fryers / Oil Fondues specified in this Standard.
