    1.2 revised October 20, 2012

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


    1.2.1 added July 1, 2013

    1.3 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.

    1.4 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 "appliance" is employed, it is to be understood that the requirement applies to all of the types of equipment covered by the standard.

    1.5 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.
