Types of Deep Fryers

People love to get together for a barbecue. And one of the latest trends to hit the outdoor cooking scene is deep-frying. It's fun, it's versatile, and it's easy. And with the range of deep fryers available, there's literally one for everyone, from beginners to barbecuing experts. As you're exploring the food and cooking possibilities of deep fryers, consider the types -- electric, stovetop, and propane/gas -- then make the selection that works best for you and your family.

Electric

Electric deep fryers may offer more temperature stability and control than other versions. These come in a range of sizes but do need access to power, which limits their placement outdoors.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

As fun and versatile as deep fryers are, there are still items that are important to review before making any purchase. For example, some deep fryers are best suited to certain types of food. So if you and your family love turkey, a turkey deep fryer is probably a good match. Other must-review purchase considerations include location/safety, oil disposal, number of cooking baskets/areas, and wheels. Get started on your cooking journey with this guide.

Location/Safety

Because of the combination of large amounts of cooking oil and high heat, deep fryers have special location and safety concerns. Make sure you have a spot to place yours that's well away from structures of any sort and on a base that's nonflammable.

Oil Disposal

All deep fryers use oil, and that oil must be disposed of in a safe manner. Think through how you can remove cooled oil from your deep fryer and place it in the proper trash area for your community.

Number of Cooking Baskets/Areas

Larger deep fryers may have enough capacity to provide several cooking baskets or areas. This translates into the ability to cook more than one type of food at once.

Food Type

Some deep fryers are designed for one particular type of food -- fish fryers with shallow baskets, for example, or turkey fryers with very deep bowls.

Wheels

Many deep fryers -- particularly the larger versions -- have wheels that enable you to easily move them from storage to cooking spots.
