Deep Fat Fryers

i am being coerced(sp) into getting one.

OH wants home made scotch eggs, and home made fish and chips in a beer batter, lol.

i have a "chip pan" that very rarely gets used, but i hate using it anyway - it scares me - like my ancient second hand pressure cooker.

i digress as usual.

so i have been looking into deep fat fryers, i have no intention of using it daily, possibly not even once a week, but a lot of chefs on tv often use one (james martin saturday kitchen for one).

and i quite like the look of the oblong type ones, as i think i could house it better than a big round one.

can anyone recommend a type/brand one that is also very easy to clean and looks pretty, i have been looking at a morphy richards one - i don;t want to pay a lot of money either.

thanks i look forward to reading your opinions.

I had one once, I think it was a Tefal but it was hard to keep it clean. Maybe they are easier now. Mine ended up on the tip, it wasn't broken, just got fed up with it. They also smell the house out, well mine did anyway.If you live near Aldi they have a mini one for sale at £16.99 this coming Sunday. Look on their website.
I hope I haven't put you off buying one.

Sam, I have a stainless steel Magimix one. The holding part measures 11"l 7"w 8"d. You can read the temps and it thermostats. Wouldn't be without it.

Sorry Sam cant recommend the type you want as I have never had one of those but I do have a Tefal oleoclean, which has the downside of being really big and bulky BUT,although I hardly use my fryer I would not be without it.
I make scotch eggs and they are so much nicer than shop bought ones, I also make mini scotch eggs with quails eggs which go down well.I make fish cakes, which are much better deep fried than shallow fried, I do my own beer battered fish and of course lovely homemade chips, samosas, lots of things, just not that often.
I find the filter stops the smells and I've also read that fast deep frying in hot oil is less fattening than shallow frying as it seals the food so the oil does not get absorbed as much.
I think you will be pleased you got one even if like me it only comes out once in a blue moon.x

I have a DeLonghi and it's very easy to empty the oil as it has a foldaway tube so I just put the other end of the tube into a container and gravity draws it out. Cleaning the thing is the problem. It says no abrasives just hot soapy water but a lot of the grease stays in the pan and won't come off. Would I have another? If I had to I would get one with a timer and a removable pan. If I couldn't have those then No, I wouldn't buy another.

Like Gerry got a Magimix stainless steel one You can remove the heating element/thermostat and put it in the dishwasher when the oil needs to be changed, not the cheapest though. foxy x

Deep Fat Fryers - for JaneMR

I knew this had been discussed recently, so just bumping it up for you.
Don't have anything to add, personally, as I don't have one.

SonyaK - Thank you

You are a star, I hadn't noticed the previous blogs as I wasn't thinking about it then.

Thank you very much
