Comes with thermometer and recipes. Cooks food quick and evenly. Oil stays hot and baskets are strong. Assembles fast and easy.
Aftermath of cleanup might be tricky due to oil's drainage from baskets when holding up. Regulating gas flow could be tricky.
Comes with nice deep-frying basket with long handle that makes immersing food safe and efficient. Unit is easy and fast to assemble. Cleans up in no time. Can be used in the comfort of your own backyard, while camping, and even tailgating.
No lid included. Controlling the flame takes effort to get it just right for cooking at the right temp needed.
Uses 1 lb. propane tank that will last about three hours to produce all kinds of foods from shrimp to hot dogs. Only uses 1 qt. of oil to save on money. Has three settings along with electric igniter. A good unit to have for backyard parties when guests get hungry and want snack foods fast.
Angle of rim is a little steep causing cooked fish to fall back into the deep-frying basket and into oil. Could be a little sturdier.
Priced well. Comes with pot and basket for chicken and fish. You might be able to attach it to your current grill's established hose and start frying fast. Food comes out even and consistent. Good if you are looking for something for outdoor frying.
No lid included. Pan is thin and might result in burning oil, as well as food.
Easy to assemble and take apart without tools. Fits inside a trunk or RV. Durable, sturdy, and of good quality. Cooks fast. The more you use it, the better food tastes. Perfect for using in the backyard, when camping, tailgating, and more.
Burner may be too small for some users. No converter hose is included in case you want to hook it into a larger propane tank.

While deep fryers were once reserved for commercial use, now they are more accessible for households that want crispy fried food whenever they crave it. Portable propane deep fryers are convenient, efficient, and safe when used properly. When choosing a portable propane deep fryer, consider how much frying space you will need. Larger items, like whole turkeys, need quite a bit of space since you need to account for a buffer of a few inches. A larger propane tank means longer frying time between filling up. Since deep frying can be dangerous, always follow the directions for your individual fryer, including the guidelines for frozen foods and maximum amounts of oil.
