I've not heard about it. Does it work? Let's hear the review!

Probably because that is not really frying.

Mind if I ask another deep frying question? What do you do with all that oil when you're finished? No "spill" jokes, please.

Save the container the oil comes in and pour it back into that. Then it can be recycled.

It's useful having a friend that runs a biodiesel. With all the talk of the SHTF I'm thinking it could be used for homemade candles, the kind that use regular vegetable oil.

For all of you thinking about using an ordinary sauce pan on the stove top for deep frying, look at this Wikipedia article on the fire hazards
Chip pan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Enough to convince me that an electric deep fryer is the only option.

Thanks so much. I thought I could reusethe oil. I just wanted some backup. I'll filter it through a coffee filter first, just to be safe.

@ Kimber,

You can still use the oil as long as it is not yet dark.

@ Steve,

Thanks for the fire safety reminder. He is right, it is really dangerous when you are frying with a high fire temp because sometimes fire crawls in the pan igniting a big fire with the help of the oil.
