Questions & Answers for GE GE 12-Cup Deep Fryer

Question

can you leave the oil in pot to be reused?

My son has one and thought he would be using a gallon of oil each time he uses the fryer and felt it was a waste. So he asked if he could re-use the oil for the same types of foods.

This is what the manuals said to do:
1)Unplug the appliance from the electrical wall outlet and from the fryer socket.
2)Let the applaince and oil in the reseervoir cool completely.
3)After the appliance has cooled completely, use the tip of a ball point pen or pencil and push the rest button that is located at the back of the control assembly, then you may resume frying.

Why can't I use peanut oil

Just keep the temperature lower with peanut oil. I use it and when it starts to smoke, it is too hot. Don't walk away from your fryer using peanut oil. Google peanut oil temperatures. Don't catch your house on fire. Be logical.

I called the peanut oil people and they say they don't know why GE would say that. People have been deep frying with peanut oil for years as have I. I'm using peanut oil now with no problem

Looks like it is cast into the control unit. Also soldering a new one in would be a problem. Just get another one, they are such low price that all the work is not worth it. Sometimes the components do wear out.

I went outside and found a board 1 inch thick 12 inches wide and 2 feet long. It's perfect.
You could use a walk way tile or cement slab for a walk way. Or fill a tray with small rocks and put the fryer in there. Just make sure it sits solid.

Question

How do you clean this thing?

I see a lot of people in the reviews saying it is easy to clean up after using this product?! How? First off, I have to wait a couple hours for the gallon of oil I used to cool. And then I have to try to pour the oil back in the vegetable oil container which is not easy given how heavy that black square container is. Then there are like 5 different things to wash. I have to wash the black container that holds the oil, the basket, the lid, the electric metal fork on the bottom which powers the fryer, and the outside of the fryer.

How are you simplifying the cleaning up process. Please help me!

I do not empty my fryer after each use but store it with the oil inside. I only clean it when I change the oil. It should be said, it is easy to clean in comparison to other fryers that do not come apart so easily.
I have been reusing the oil this way for over four years and have survived so far.

All I did was made sure I took out the heating element, dumped the used oil, and then washed all the other parts just like you do your dishes. I wiped the heating element off with some paper towels. Just use soap, water and a sponge and wash it like you do your dishes. It's easy to clean because its not all one piece that you have to try and not get wet.

If you used it for 1 year then you got your moneys worth. They are so reasonable in cost just get another one. I have three and I love them.
Electrical parts don't do well with water. Don't emerse the control panel.
