How many use a deep fryer?

This past winter, I bought a counter-top deep fryer, 2 L capacity. I mainly use it to make fried chicken, with some french fries and fried pirogies. One of these days, I'm going to get some shrimp and fry some.

Do any of you all have a deep fryer, and if so, what do you cook in it?

I have a Fry Daddy but refuse to use it. I had a chicken liver explode & shower my hand with hot oil! My mil is giving me a deep fryer with a lid that closes while you are frying. I like to fry squash, zucchini, okra, whole baby potatoes, chicken, chicken livers, oysters, I could go on all day!

I use a 50 year old deep fryer. It's called a heavy old aluminum pot. Never fails. Always works. Near impossible to break. Nothing to burn out or break.

I have my grandfather's electric deep fat fryer from Montgomery Wards. I am afraid to use it though - fear of old wiring.

I don't have one and don't intend to get one. Fear of cleaning.

I have a fry daddy, but haven't used it in years. When I did use it I would make falaffel.

I've got a Fry-Baby (or is it a Fry-Daddy Jr.?) and a Fry-Daddy and I bet I haven't used either one in 5-10 years. They just don't regulate the temp that well. Have seen several of the new fryers and it's just not worth the hastle to have to drag them out of storage to use. I use the Psiguyy fryer methond ... old heavy aluminum pot with a pour spout on the side, and a thermometer. Less mess, less fuss, and doesn't break down.
