counter-top deep fryers
My wish list for the kitchen includes a deep-fryer, and Im assuming that no ones getting me something from Gaggenau for the holidays...
What experiences have you had with counter-top fryers for the home? Capacity and easy clean up are the only things I can think of to consider. Any ideas would be appreciated!
Last Christmas I bought my husband the DeLonghi stainless steel deep fryer (3-lb) capacity. He has used it about 10 times and it works quite well for our needs (2-4 people). Easy clean up becuase the whole thing comes apart and all but the heating element can go into the sink/dishwasher. About $100 from cooking.com - just saw the same thing for $40 at Sam's Club
I like my Waring Pro. It allows you to get up to 375F, instead of the 360F max on some others. Large capacity, easy to clean.
I have the Waring Pro and like it very much. It's quite easy to clean (the removable oil container is dishwasher-safe) and gets to frying temp very quickly.
Thanks, all. I think the Waring Pro is a "nose" ahead on this one, although, Aimee, $40 for the DeLonghi is a hard one to turn down. Happy holidays to you, and thanks again for the counsel.
