Tips On How To Use Deep Fryers


If you have recently invested in an in-home deep fryer, but you are not to sure how to use it, here on helpful tips on how to use deep fryers

1. Fill Your Deep Fryer With Oil

When you have decided on the oil you would like to use, pour the oil into a cold deep fryer, making sure not to overfill or underfill it. Most models will feature a maximum fill line.

2. Turn the Deep Fryer On Making Sure It Reaches The Correct Heat Level

Set the time and temperature on your deep fryer and then ensure that oil reaches the right temperature. For most deep frying the temperature should range between 350 degrees F and 375 degrees F. Most models will have their own thermostats which will ensure the temperature stays constant.

3. Your Food Should Be Dry

Oil and water do not mix well, so it is advisable to pat your food dry or protect or cover the food in a dusting or batter. If you are frying fresh-cut potatoes, make sure you dry them on a kitchen towel before placing them into the fryer.

4. Lower The Food In Carefully

This task is usually easy as most models come with a basket that you can put your food into, which lowers and then locks into place. However, for the models that don’t have a basket, you should use a slotted spoon or slowly lower the food into the hot oil.

5. Time The Frying Process

Another tip on how to use deep fryers is to make sure you time how long your food is in the fryer for. Most items will only take a couple of minutes to cook, so you should stay close to the fryer to avoid overcooking your food.

6. Remove The Food Carefully Out Of The Oil

When your food is cooked to your liking, remove the items with care. If your fryer has a basket all that is needed is to lift the basket. If you need to manually remove the food use a slotted spoon and make sure all excess oil drains out of the spoon before placing your food on a paper towel.

7. Allow The Food To Stand For A Bit And To Dry

It is important to allow your fried foods to dry before serving as well as allow the food to cool down enough so that it can be eaten.
