ISO deep-fry (batter) help/advice

Is it possible to batter your own food (chicken, fish, etc) and cook it in a commercial electric deep fryer such as Perfect Fry or Auto Fry? Has anyone done this and how did it turn out? Did the batter stay on? Did it mess up the oil? Did the Fryer filters plug up? Other issues? Appreciate any help. Thanks, Robert

Beer Batter
1 cup flour
1 12oz beer
1 tsp garlic
1 tsp onion powder
Wisk all in a bowl & put it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
Flour meat, fish, mushrooms, what ever! Drop into hot oil (no basket) until it floats, then fry (turning) until well browned, drain & eat.
You can also add seasoning's to the flour.

s of your choice to the flour.

And remember the secret...

If you start with wet food you flour, egg wash, flour, batter....

If you start with dry food you egg wash, flour, batter.

That's my secret to success.

These recipes may be a chance at success, but the question was, "will it mess up a professional fryer or the oil".

I can't imagine how a homemade batter would cause a problem with a commercial fryer.
