How to Choose a Deep Fryer

Walmart carries a variety of deep fryers from trusted brands to help your cooking endeavors taste their best. Here are some factors to keep in mind as you shop for a deep fryer.

Capacity: If you only want to make small batches of fries, onion rings or chicken nuggets, a 1- to 4-cup capacity fryer meets your needs. However, if you plan to prepare large quantities of food for a cookout, look for a fryer that holds up to 10 cups of food.

Size: You can find fryers that range from less than 9 inches tall and 20 inches wide to industrial models measuring more than 2 feet tall and up to 30 inches wide. Consider your family size and the amount of countertop or storage space in your kitchen when determining the size of the fryer you need.

Material: Aluminum and stainless steel are sleek and durable, but they may heat up considerably during use. If you have children around, consider a plastic deep fryer that's cool to the touch. Glass lids make it easy to see how the food is cooking, and non-stick coatings prevent food from sticking.
