deep fat fryers are nice and easy to use right, well not all of
them. Depending on the kind you have you can really cook up some
fried foods fast. Wouldn't you just love one of those nice
commercial fryers for yourself, man those things are nice. Well this
is about the next best thing.
There are a few different manufacturers
this kind of machine and it works. I've had one for almost a year and it does the
trick for me. To the right is an Ultrex
3-Liter Stainless Steel Deep Fryer.
It has a heating element just
like the commercial fryers do. In fact it's a small scale version of
one. This is a photo from the HSN web site.
You can get this one for about $65.
The fryer I have is a Bravetti brand name, they look almost
identical to each other.
the one I own... you can see the coils on the inside. The basket on
the Ultrex is small but that's because you're not supposed to
overload the basket like you can with mine.
I put a box of salt there to give you an idea of the size. What I
like about it is the speed in which the oil heats between batches.
The basket has a hanging clip so you can let the foods drain.
The whole thing goes in the dishwasher except the control box and
put the basket in the cooker just like you see it sitting here. The
cover goes on and the little slots on the cover fit around the
handle. There is a filter on it to let steam out and keep oil in
You can figure on using a gallon of oil in it. I only use it if I
have a lot of food to fry (more than three batches).
There are several places (Sears, Target, EBay) that carry
them and the the best price I've seen so far is $60.00 and can be as
high as $100.
