Fat, Oil and Grease (FOG), just like any other food waste starts to smell if left for too long and just like with any other food waste good kitchen practices help prevent most if not all of the bad odour.

Bins are collected regularly to avoid bad smells form decomposing food waste. The same applies to Fat, Oil and Grease (FOG) smells and odours. The smell can originate from several locations.

Firstly, from drains outside the restaurant if not removed with a grease trap and allowed to build up, often for years. This will result in an unpleasant smell, especially in the summer.

Secondly, inside the kitchen from unsealed grease traps. Nobody in their right mind would store food waste inside the kitchen in an unsealed bin for days or weeks. So don't opt for an unsealed grease trap, to put it simple because they smell, in just the same way a bin would smell if left with food waste inside.

Our solution is a Big Dipper with odour seal (patent pending). All Big Dipper units are engineered with a system of magnets, clasps and seals that keeps odour locked inside. This makes Big Dipper a more hygienic option than some other types of grease traps. With Big Dipper, you own the solution to efficient grease management for your business.

Choosing the Big Dipper will ensure a pleasant environment for your staff and customers alike.

Written by Andrew Crook published in FFR For many years I have had issues with the drains at my shop, not regularly, but every so often there will be a blockage. My shop is on a parade of shops which are mostly occupied by food premises. In the past, previous owners of some of the takeaways have been caught pouring used cooking oil down the drain so when we have had a blockage, I always put it down to the other operators as the drains run my way. With the Government’s Environment Bill currently ‘ping ponging’ between the House of Lords and the Commons, and Cop26 taking place as I write this, it’s a good time to explore this issue.
