I have a couple of old 10L oil bottles and wondered if the restaurants could fill that assuming they have some kind of drain tap on their fryer.
    Mate, 20 litre plastic containers which are opaque which they probably buy their dishwasher detergent in. This enables you both to easily see the fluid level in them preventing spills.

    I also use the 20L chemical drums for storing filtered oil, ready for use.
    My supplier returns the used oil to the 20L steel drums it came in.
