Question

Oil use only once or several times?

Do you have to change the oil each use or store the oil in the fryer for the next time the fryer is used?

The container that the oil is in is removable, so you can easily store it in the fridge to keep the oil fresh. Depends on your taste, but I wouldn't reuse the oil if I had fried fish in it. Otherwise, I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be able to recycle your oil several times.

I bought the fryer mostly to make chicken wings, and I only change the peanut oil after using the same oil 6-8 times. Incidentally, if you decide to make wings...be sure to cook them until they all are floating at the top. Otherwise, they won't be quite done inside.

I bought this fryer last year, and love it! Usually, I use the oil 6-8 times before changing the oil. I think it's important to use peanut oil, since it has a higher smoke point.

In most cases, the oil can be used more than once. Some meats release large amounts of juices and dilute the oil, requiring the oil to be discarded. Oil used to fry fish or other strong flavored food should also be discarded. Oil to be reused is removed from the fryer once cool, filtered into a clean container, and stored in a cool place without exposure to sun light.

Yes. If you think about it the plastic would melt at those temperatures. It is to protect the product during shipping

Yes, remove all plastic and Styrofoam before use. Seems it would cause a fire if left on, especially on the heating element.

Question

My fries always come out burnt on th outside and uncooked on inside. I tried temperatures 255-275F for 5 to 10 mins. Would any body help me out?

I am really frustrated. My onion rings also do not turn out too well. Would anyone guide me on this issue as well?

After cutting fries soak in hot water for 20 minutes. Drain and dry them thoroughly. Heat oil to 325. Cook fries 3 1/2 to 4 minutes. Take them out of the oil. Wait anywhere from 10 minutes up to 2 hours with fries out of oil. Heat oil to 375. Cook 6-7 minutes (until slightly browned). Works out perfect!

As for Onion Rings: Look up a recipe called "Making Crispy Onion Rings" by Chef John at Allrecipes. Best onion rings ever!

my husband is a chef. if your making home made fries from potatoes than fri them on the lowest setting till a light golden brown than take out and turn the deep fryer up to 375-400 when up to temp. put the fries back in until a darker brown this will make the fries softer in the middle and crunchier on the outside. Hope this helps.

Oops, I didn't read thru all the instructions after buying the fryer. Does it say not to use peanut oil? Because I HAVE been using peanut oil, since I bought my fryer over a year ago...and everything's been fine.

I use a double layer of cheesecloth placed in a hand strainer and strain into large measuring cup then pour into a storage container. Wait until the oil has cooled to do this.

answer 2
I don't filter. When the oil gets too many little pieces of stuff floating around or smells different I just change it.
I also change it after one use when cooking anything with meat in it. I suppose you could use a coffee filter and a funnel when the oil is room temperature if you wanted to filter.

I do believe that the cord can be replace. Contact the maker of the deep fryer, hardware store or if you still have the original owners manual they may have a parts list that you can order another one.

Aquarium supply departments carry thin charcoal sponges for aquarium filters. You could try buying one of those & cutting it to fit your fryer. Or, battery-operated smokeless ashtrays (if they still make them), usually had little charcoal replacement filters available, which you might also be able to trim & use for your fryer, too.
