Our chef says this $60 deep fryer will step up your game day food.
By Maddy Tolman
Super Bowl Sunday is one of the biggest food holidays of the year. Thanksgiving has its turkey, Easter has its ham, but when else can you load up your plate with wings, dips and chips, and deep-fried pickles and call it dinner?
For your deep-fried foods, this tabletop deep fryer will become your Super Bowl sidekick.
Dual Basket Deep Fryer, $67.40, Walmart
Listen, the air fryer is great. But there’s no substituting that crispy, crunchy crust that the deep fryer gives. And sure, you can totally deep fry in an oil-filled pot, but that’s more of an in-a-pinch solution—not ideal for frequent fryers.
Chef Todd Leonard gave this tabletop deep fryer a nod of approval.
“Deep fryers are tricky… and everyone gets a little nervous, but this is a Walmart special for sixty bucks,” Chef Todd says, “It’s legit! It’s totally legit.”
The 4.5-star reviews back him up and applaud the appliance’s reliability, ease of use, and versatility.
No waiting for the oil to heat up—this fryer’s quick heating technology means less waiting and more munching. It comes with adjustable temperature control, allowing you to control the heat and get the right fry, from chicken wings to deep fried pickles.
The 12-cup food capacity and double basket design lets you fry two foods at once, or an extra-large batch. You can easily fit a large piece of chicken or fish inside the basket. The spatter-shield cover helps keep you covered from hot oil and reduces spattering on your clothes.
Not only can you deep fry in this gadget, but you can also use it to steam and boil, too! Simply take the fry basket out and use the built-in enameled pot.
The best part? It’s dishwasher safe. The removable baskets make cleanup a breeze.
