Deep-frying is a form of dry-heat cooking in which food is directly submerged in hot oil. And the next thing you know - you have got yourself that perfect crunchy golden brown surface with a tender interior! The trick is, of course, is getting yourself the right deep fryer for the perfect yield.

How is a deep fryer used?

The most important thing to remember is to fill in the fryer with the correct amount of oil. Not too little and not too much; just do not exceed the maximum line marked on the fryer. Before you start cooking, do wait until the oil is heated to the right temperature which is around 350 F to 400 F (175°C to 190°C).

Be sure that the food you are going to fry is dry to avoid oil-spitting which can be extremely dangerous. No worries on being fast; just take your time putting in and taking out the food. Also, make sure the entire food is dipped in the oil for the perfect outcome.
