REALLY, want to purchase a deep fryer...Go or Forget About It?
Enjoy fried foods now and then, grew up on the old pot of bacon fat/ oil - especially for fries.
However, find restaurant fried food meh...
My S/O thinks open fryer pots are hazards (ok, I admit, I'm not as careful as I used to be)
Should I go for a deep fryer...? Do you enjoy yours?
I've had a few. They are cool for a few uses. If you fry things often, then I would recommend it. I'd also recommend using it outdoors cuz the ones I have used give of an electric smell that I don't really care for in the house. I don't fry a lot, but when I do, I do like to use the deep fryer contraption. Other than once a year usage tho, it's clutter.
I'd be more concerned about mess and odor as opposed to safety. I have an outdoor (natural gas) grill with a side burner that I use when I need to do serious frying. Really can't tolerate the smell and spatter indoors. I had a self-contained DeLonghi for years, which is really just more clutter for limited use. If you have outdoor space, I'd recommend a propane fryer, but that's really because I have a low threshold for indoor deep frying:
