I think it's worth a try. Directions are right on the package.

It's worth doing. So much better than oven baked.
For me its even easier than preheating an oven, then having a cookie sheet to clean up afterwards.
When frying the oil is ready in 10 minutes and the fried items cook very fast.
Then just a paper plate and a paper towel are all you need.
Don't forget to season the moment the food leaves the fryer.

As most people do. But some of us don't and that's fine too.
I grew up with a pot of oil on the stove at all times. My kids grew up with a pot of oil on the stove at all times. I now have a Fry Daddy filled with oil on my stove top at all times.
Its just part of the kitchen and would be sorely missed if it was to disappear.
That why I keep another one ready to go. Just in case or when one needs an oil change.

About oil disposal.
Chief, I use left over oil to light my weber too. But it only takes a few drops and what we have left is much more than that.
Our waste compacting station has a reservoir for used cooking oil as well as used engine oil.
Both are recycled and that makes frying even better. Hopefully they are doing with it, what they claim to be doing!

Yum... tater tots. I love them fried but they are even more awesome 'baked' in a grill basket on the BBQ. There is no oil to clean up and they cook faster than in the oven.
