I just saw this post late, and it is unbelievable how it got no traction. Surely there are fried-food lovers out there. If so, this should have gotten 100+ greens, or until the product sold out. Even now, without the KCash, it is the lowest price around by far. This is ~ half the price of the next cheapest, AND it comes with an extra full-width basket, a $20 value.
Now just need to decide what oil to use.. I guess for now canola will get the nod.
Out of the commonly available oils, Olive oil should NEVER be used for high heat. Canola comes in second, and while it's acceptable for cooking, it is not conducive to deep frying. High temperatures break down the oil, and can even turn it carcinogenic. Corn is acceptable. Vegetable is better. Sunflower even more so, but a little pricey. Peanut is the best in every way. For flavor. For evenness. For non-greasiness. It can also be re-used a few times. Can be really pricey, so a blend is acceptable.
