Many fried foods, like fried chicken and fish, are actually better when done only shallow fried in a frying pan, but occasionally I want deep fried breaded zucchini slices, sweet potato chips, plantains, or French fries.
If you don’t fry often, a deep fryer can be a bit of a pain because you cannot keep used oil for more than a few weeks without it getting funky, and it is kinda wasteful to pour a quart of oil into a fryer and then throw it away after one use. But if you’re making a mess of hush puppies for a party, a fryer sure comes in handy.
DeLonghi’s Deep Fryer holds 2.2 pounds of food and cooks from 300 to 370°F. It has a clever oil drainage system, a viewing window in the lid, a non-stick interior, and an air filter that helps prevent oil smells. Plus, it’s relatively inexpensive and compact for easy storage.
