Deep fryer

A household deep fryer.

A deep fryer is an appliance that holds and heats oil for frying. Temperature settings control the frying time. The vessel that holds the oil should be deep enough to cover the food being fried.

Food is placed in a metal mesh basket, and then lowered into the hot oil. Once the food is cooked, the basket is lifted out of the oil to drain.
