Bottom Line
Pros
Cons

While you can bake fried foods such as french fries, onion rings, and chicken nuggets in the oven, they’ll taste better in a deep fryer. Because food is immersed in a pool of oil, they’re cooked evenly on all sides. Most basket deep fryers are rectangular or square, but some are round. Oil capacity in a deep fryer ranges from about 1 quart to approximately 1.6 gallons. They have a dial for specific temperatures, but some will also have settings for different foods. Some deep fryers have a timer. Components like the lid, oil tank, and basket are generally removable for easier cleaning. Some come with 2 baskets, allowing you to fry 2 foods with the same oil to save time and money.
