Indoor Deep Fryers Buying Guide

Refine By

For satisfying fried foods or crowd-pleasing appetizers, a deep fryer is a must-have tool. It’s possible to deep-fry foods in a pan or a Dutch oven, but you probably won’t get the results you’re looking for if you’re craving restaurant-style French fries or onion rings.

Types of Deep Fryers

Types of Deep Fryers

Choose your deep fryer based on the size of the crowd you’ll be cooking for. Capacities can vary from single-serving fryers to those big enough to cook a whole chicken. Temperature controls with specific degree settings are important so you know when the appliance has reached the optimal temperature (375°F) for adding food. Generic “low,” “medium,” and “high” settings won’t cut it with a fryer. Make sure you have the open counter space and clearance for a fryer to avoid using extension cords or frying with hot oil near an open flame.

Classic Deep Fryers

Deep fryers are available in cylinder, square, and rectangular shapes. Capacities range from single-serving to many cups. Base your decision on how many people you will typically be cooking for.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

The path to crisp, crunchy foods is fairly simple, if you look for a few essential elements when buying a deep fryer. Be sure the machine you buy lets you set the temperature by degrees. Recognize that you’re cooking with very hot oil, so be mindful to add foods slowly; make sure you have a safe, open area in which to cook; and thoroughly clean all the parts -- especially the hot oil container.


Base your capacity decision on the number of people you will typically cook for. Remember that you can always cook food in batches.


Foods require different temperatures for cooking, so opt for controls that set specific temperatures, rather than simplistic settings like low, medium, and high.

Signal lights

A light that signals when the oil has reached the proper temperature is handy.

Filtration system

To clean and reuse oil, opt for a model that offers an oil filtration and drainage system. This will allow you to get multiple uses from a batch of oil.


Many models have a cover to keep splattering to a minimum while cooking. The cover often includes a filter system that reduces odors.

Insulated handles

If the model has a removable basket for draining and removing cooked foods, be sure the basket handle is insulated for easy handling.


Many smaller fryers feature non-stick interiors that can be removed for cleaning. If other parts aren’t removable, be sure they are easy to wipe down in place.
