I was sent the deep fryer with my husband in mind, as I knew he would love me forever if I got one. What I found surprising was how many things you could actually cook in it. Instead of baking cookies for the teachers, why not some tasty doughnuts? Instead of baking a turkey in the oven for Thanksgiving, you can deep fry a turkey breast which would be delicious and incredibly moist!  With the 3 baskets, you have enough space for foods to cook evenly and because it does not trap grease, the food is healthier. It holds over 16 cups, has an immersion element for fast pre-heating, splatter protection lid and grease filter, which can be washed and reused. The stainless steel looks smart and is easy to wipe clean. This deep fryer would be a great addition to any kitchen!  Be sure to like Brylane Home on Facebook and follow them on Twitter to stay up to date with all of their latest information and deals.
