New Toy - Deep Fryer!

I couldn't resist when I saw a deep fryer on sale for $40. They are regularly nearly $80 so I bought one on a whim. Now I'm afraid I'm going to clog my family's arteries as I play with my new toy. I made spring rolls last night, I'm contemplating doing some fries tonight. I really bought it so I could make sizzling rice soup, but I don't have any shrimp so that's on the back burner for now. LOL! Here is my new baby.

That's the model I have. I really like it. I have "moments" where I use it a two-three times in a row, and then it gets put away for several months. Deep-fried breaded mushrooms...

My next frying experience will be crab rangoon. I just have to come up with a filling recipe I'm happy with and go for it.

Nice. You'll like the sealed lid. I have a similar style that I don't use anymore, but I always liked that part about it.

Time for some rippers....!

Thought I might also do tempura everything, and jalapeno poppers. Anyone got a good batter recipe?

I just discovered the timer function on this model. *forehead slap* Ah well, who needs a timer really?
