Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Frying has matured from the cholesterol-dripping, artery-hardening cooking technique of yore into a much cleaner, more healthful and certainly more delicious way to prepare meals. With the advent of higher quality oils and fryers, people are able to cook their foods at higher temperatures, searing in their natural juices without making them soggy and laden with saturated fat. Today, frying has become one of the hottest trends in cooking, and as witnessed by the fact that Williams Sonoma alone carries three different types of fryers, home cooks are buying these kitchen accessories in droves.

The Best Fryer Cookbook Ever helps these eager chefs take full advantage of their machines. It features an introduction to the art of frying, gives an overview of the types of fryers on the market, provides some tips for safe frying at home and demystifies the process to help readers master the subtle techniques needed to cook their foods to perfection. Then there are the recipes. From crispy appetizers (Popcorn Shrimp), to mouthwatering meats (Chicken-Fried Steak with Gravy), to sizzling seafood (Fried Calamari), to vegetables (Fried Okra), to sweets (Chocolate Cake Doughnuts) and more, this tempting cookbook provides a stunning, mouthwatering variety of fried fare that will have lucky gourmands diving in and begging for seconds.

This is a pretty good book. It gives you the basics on deep fryers (makes and models, safety, helpful hints, ect...) Lots of good and new recipies that I never knew you could do in a deep fryer. So now it doesn't just sit around until I do fries, I can now use it for other things too. There are recipies in here for apetizers, breads, meats, deserts, and much more. I really enjoyed it.

This book does a good job of covering the basics of frying, but I confess I wanted more detailed knowledge of frying. I wanted to understand better the ramifications of using different oils, or different batters, and what temperatures were the best for specific use.
The recipes cover a broad range of different types of food, and look like simple, solid recipes. They are certainly not too complex for any cook to undertake.
The discussion of the advantages of the different models of fryers is already dated, but offers some good pointers on what to look for.
If you have not done a lot of frying or do not own a deep fryer, this is a good basic investment. Otherwise, you may want something with more details.

This is a fantastic book for anyone owning a deep fryer. Great recipies that are for every day use not just those fancy gourmet type foods that real people do not use. If you can only get one deep fryer cookbook this would be a great choice.

I am new to the frying seen. This book is great for those that are new to frying and like me just bought a deep fryer. The fried chicken recipes are great and I can not wait to try them. I just made the cake doughnuts on page 160 and they turned out PERFECT! The book is small (7 in x 6 in) and contains 214 pages. There are many great looking recipes and I will be making lots of them! The neighborhood kids just ran through my house and grabbed a do-nut and exclaimed how great they were. Anyway, I can tell I will treasure this little book. I do not eat fried food very often, but when I am in the mood, this book will come in handy.

Loaded with recipes off all sorts. We just got a deep fryer recently and really hadn't thought about anything to make except for basics like fries, fish, and chicken. The book has helped us to experiment more and deepen my appreciation of my fryer. Even if you find just one recipe that you like the book pays for itself. The only downside is my expanding waistline. Oh, well.
