    Just fired up the Presto Fry Daddy to cook myself some hashbrowns, which are the second of two things I can deep fry, the first being french fries.

    Think I'll try something different and add pepper as well as salt to the hashbrowns when they come out.

    So put 'em up, what all have you managed to cook in a home fryer that can fit on a countertop?

    Not regular table salt, but SEASONING salt?

    I've gotten to where my Hashbrowns taste better than what I can get at McD's, but that's probably not saying a lot.

    Ya, like Lowry's Seasoning salt. It's really good on fries, bet it'd be good on hashbrowns too.

    Okay, I think I may have gone overboard with the pepper on the hashbrowns. My mouth lit up too much when I started eating. Cola also I'm afraid doesn't go too well with pepper either.

    Thanks for the tip on the seasoning salt, I'll grab some the next time I'm out.

    Now another question. How often do you guys who deep fry often change your fryer's cooking oil, or when do you know it's time to change it?

    We don't have one, but some friends I used to hang out with do, and we cooked the hell outta some Tyson boneless breaded chicken breasts. We had an insider supply us with a lot of Bojangle's seasoning, so it was great.

    You can do hot dogs, mozerella sticks, chicken tenders, fries, corndogs, all kinda stuff.

    This is exactly what I just used. Can only do small stuff, but I bought it myself (not given to me) and was inexpensive.

    The fry daddy unit that's in the link I just posted is now the second one in the house. The grandma's got an older one, but I had the parents bring the newer one that I had bought down here and we put the older one in retirement because the new one's got a huge safety feature on it the older one doesn't have: the cord magnetically attaches to the unit and so can be rapidly disconnected from the fryer without having to unplug the cord from the wall.

    That's when you change it? Does the food start to taste different then too?

    It will start to taste like the other food you have cooked in there. Example - your chicken will taste like fish. The oil will stink too.

    Almost everything I eat is from my fryer:

    Pizza Rolls
    Stuffed Nachos
    Hot Pockets
    Burritos
    Fries
    Corn Dogs
    Chicken Tenders
    Cod chunks
    Toasted Ravioli
    Mini tacos
    Cheese sticks
    Dougnuts
    French toast sticks

    There may be more that I can't remember, but this is what I eat on a regular basis.


    I tried some Waffles once, but it didn't work out quite as I had planned.





    :D
