It would also depend on the temperature of whatever you are frying. Frozen french fries, for example, will not only cause a termendous agitation of the oil, they will also reduce the temperature of the oil. I have gotten into the habit of taking anything I will be deep frying out of the refrigerator or freezer at least an hour before I plan on cooking it.

I have a Philips HD6161 Digital Professional Fryer, which I bought at Target, but I believe they are no longer available in the United States, but are still available in Europe. It holds approximately 4 quarts of oil to the fill line. I've had it for about 5 years now, and it is an excellent product.

Caine - you are right ... 3 things make a difference ... this is starting to remind me of the Monty Python "Spanish Inquisition" sketch ...

Corey - I've got to give Ron a pass ... he doesn't claim to be anything other than what he is, an inventor selling his creations - just like his dad did before him.

Thanks for all the input, it is greatly appreciated. I'm going to go for the silicone utensils I think, I just bought a new set of cookware, Anolon Advanced. So far so good... only used it twice so far.

The things that really draw me to the Emeril fryer is the filtration system, the fact that it comes apart almost completely (dishwasher safe) and the reviews it is receiving. I do agree that it is pricey though. I guess I'll do some more research! :) Thanks everyone!

OK, I bought the Emeril and I absolutely love it! In my opinion it is the best deep fryer out there! I love the fact that it comes completely apart for cleaning. The filtration system is great! I've used it several times and the food comes out perfect. LOVE IT!!
