Same here. Try to stay away from lots of oil unless it's olive oil.

If I am pan frying chicken, the little bit of oil gets made into gravy.
If I'm deep frying wings, that oil stays in the fryer and gets reused several times.

Same here Pacanis. I deep fry in peanut oil and when I'm finished, I strain the oil if I'm frying something with a coating and reuse it probably 5 or 6 times.

I fry so little as in about not at all that I discard it...........I would never fry fish or alternate chicken in the same oil...........but do I love fried shrimp or catfish in a restaurant? Bring it on.........and don't forget the hushpuppies!!

Thanks now I don't feel as bad about saving my oil for another use....wasn't sure how sanitary it actually was even though I make sure to cover it.

I reuse mine, it goes into the outside frig, then I pull it out, and plug it back in. If its offensive foods that have major flavor though, I chuck it.
