  • Dunkin Donuts Oil?

    Hello all,

    Does anyone use oil from donut shops? Are there any issues with the sugars in the oil. I could have access to two stores worth of the oil. Just want be sure I'm not setting my self up for a headache.

    Thanks for any help.

    Have you looked at the oil? I've read that the oil is the shortening that is solid at room temps, and there is a lot of flour and sugars in it. I have also read that it is very, very clean, because the donuts wouldn't come out right if it wasn't. And I have read that donut shops do not throw away oil because the donuts absorb it. What's the case with Dunkin'???


    My bad... You came looking for answers and only got more questions. Some one will be along shortly with some answers I'm sure.

      I would think any of the sugary stuff is added after the donuts are cooked

        Unless you have a centrifuge,or gravity settle for a long time the flour will be a problem.It is so fine that it gets suspended in the oil.If you are confident with your de-watering techique go for it(same principle).It is not for the faint of heart but the end result is very clean GOOD oil................greasy

          Maybe I'll get a sample batch to check it out through my filtering system. My normal process is prefilter through jean filters, heat for 24 hrs & 160degrees then another 24 hr settle time......no bubbles in HPT.

          I just remembered that a friend of my dad, owns 2 DD stores, which is why I possed the question before approaching the owner. dont really know how much is available at this point, but hes a good friend and would help me out. thats why I wanted to do the research up front.

          Thanks

            i think you will find they have no oil to dispose of...it all gets soaked up in the donuts...they just add more oil to the vat.
            I checked with a couple dounut shops and thats what they told me. I've not eaten a donut since by the way...
            I did get oil once from a guy at the ballpark who fryed funnel cakes and he changed is 5 gallon fryer everyday - that was good oil.

                Our local donut chain, Tim Horton's, doesn't use oil.
                I didn't think Dunkin did either.

                  They have to use some kind of frying grease. You mean like shortning?

                    I mean EASY BAKE.

                    Not joking. I work with a girl I used to buy my coffee from and asked her one day here at the office. Her response:

                    "Are you kidding me?"
                    "Um, no. You have to fry the donuts right?"
                    "You've seen the idiots that work there... we couldn't afford to fry those. We use an oven... like an easy bake oven."

                    I couldn't believe it, but she was dead serious.

                      My little donut shop only 'throws out' a few gallons/month (yea, the rest goes in the donuts). It is freakin' beautiful - dunno where the flour myth comes from?? but the oil usually is 'shortening' and is solid at room temp. They were willing to give it to me, but I declined as I (had) PLENTY of sources w/liquid VO.

                      The biggest issue really is COPS! I attract enough attention from them without smelling like the donut shop!! Ya really wanna look like the pied piper w/all the local cops following you around town???? Yes, your exhaust WILL smell like the donut shop...
