DEEP FRYING PAN:
The deep frying pan is needed for frying. This frying pan can be the normal cooking pot you use at home, buy the bigger one if you are using gas for frying.
If it a wood fuel source you are using then you will need the locally made frying pan. The reason is that the wood fuel will damage the pot with time.

If you need an aluminum sieve you should locate the Hausa quarters in your city and ask them for it. This is one of their businesses.

PLANTAIN SLICER / KNIFE:
There is a special slicer for this Plantain Chips (snacks) Business, but only the slicer is not compactable for all stages of plantain, like the ripe plantain.
I still prefer having both the knife and the slicer to help you when you notice either of them is slow during production.
