Sure will Andy. This thing also works as a steamer/boiler. I see Artichokes being cooked in it as well.

Tonight, it's battered shrimp and hush puppies with vinagared greens on the side.

That funnel looks like a great idea. How many times can you use the same oil?

I usually use the oil twice. If frying identical items, maybe 3 times.

Oil can be used multiple times. Cooking meat causes the oil to degrade faster. If you fry fish, you may not want to use it a second time.

I'm a multiple times person, too. I use peanut oil because it's supposed to hold up better. You'll know when it starts to get funky.

Ok so I'm thinking oil for doughnuts or French Frys should be saved for just doughnuts or French Fry's, right? By the same token I suppose you should save fish oil for only fish, and meat for only meat?

I can't imagine fishy tasting doughnuts.

It becomes impractical to have a shelf full of gallon bottles filled with oil and labeled 'fish', 'donughts', etc.

That's what I'm thinking too, Andy. If I've lived my whole long life without ever deep frying anything, I'm probably better off anyway.
