From America’s Test Kitchen.
Electric deep-fryers promise to take the fear out of deep frying. They supposedly make frying easier, safer, and less messy than frying in a Dutch oven with a probe thermometer attached, which is how we typically deep-fry foods in the test kitchen. Lisa and Hannah put various models to the test.
