If its choosing your first deep fryer or looking for an upgrade, picking the correct type may just be one of your most difficult choices. Certain types of fryers are used for different applications. They can range from simple design to complex mechanisms. One of the simplest fryers out there is the Fry Daddy. This was the first fryer that I have ever owned. Receiving it as a gift in a white elephant game during Christmas was even better.
The best feature of this simple design fryer was its ease of use. Plug it in, heat the oil, fry the food, unplug and store for next use. Sounds pretty simple, right? The drawback however, was dangerous hot oil splashes. No matter what I did, protective sleeves, goggles, kitchen mitts, I still would get oil splashing on me and the counter which just added to the final cleanup and collection of minor burns.
When choosing a deep fryer for yourself, all types of requirements such as safety features, design elements, or price may be running through your head. These next few pages will help you to determine which deep fryer is for you!
