I'm looking forwad to using it. Don't feel like unpacking it this evening. Tomorrow I might just give it a work out.

You can only properly break in a fryer by christening it with a fried twinkie.

I've only eaten fried green tomatoes one time at my BIL's home. I'm not sure how he cooked them, but they were so vinagary that I thought they were nasty. Never tried them again. Is that how they are supposed to taste?

Man, that's a hard question. I have whole lists of foods to try in it. I think tempura veggies of some sort will be the first try. I love tempura.

Just had fried chicken last night. I think I'll go with the veggies first. then shrimp or scallops or both.

Fritters are a side for everything here. I'll have those with whatever the first main dish is.

Got a bluetooth headphone adapter also, but it has to charge for 8 hours. I got it for the TV. If it works for that, then the neighbors will love it.

Not really. He may have dressed it with vinegar.

Andy's right, they must have been dressed with vinegar Timothy. Too bad you have a bad memory of them. Actually, I've never made them myself but my southern mama sure did and they were quite delicious.

Well dog-goneit, I'm going to have to try them again after being tutored on exactly how to prepare them.

Just finished reading the owners manual cover to cover. pretty cool device! Now I can fix all the stuff I love, but didnt' want to use an open pan on the range for.

I really like the magnetic power cord. It holds the two power pins to the unit. One small whack and it disconnects. Very good design. Tomorrow, I"m cooking SOMETHING in this thing!
