Just about everybody loves fried food. You could do an informal survey amongst your friends and acquaintances, but you already know the results. Some might say “ooh, I know I shouldn’t”, but once people start picturing fried meats, fried vegetables, fried breads – even fried ice cream – the jig is up. Many of the tastiest foods you’ll find on a restaurant menu fall into the familiar fried food category.
For many home chefs though, those beloved apps and entrees seem out of reach. Frying foods can be tricky and messy. You have to get the temperature of the oil just right for your food to be tasty rather than greasy or burnt. Dealing with extremely hot oil in a typical pan or pot is not fun, as the sizzling oil tends to splatter onto you (ow!) and onto your cooktop, leaving you with extra mess to deal with.
If you love those fried foods and want to start making them more often at home without the extra trouble, it may be time to look into buying a deep fryer.
Deep fryers aren’t a necessity in most home kitchens, but they’re a great perk for people who either enjoy fried foods enough to make them frequently, host parties often and want to add some new snacks to the mix, or want to indulge in a fried turkey for the holidays.
What You Can Make in a Deep Fryer
Before you can decide if purchasing a deep fryer is really the right decision for you, you should consider how likely you are to regularly use it. Answering that question means considering what you can make with it.
