Oven-baked fries are delicious — there's no denying that. And sure, they're probably (definitely) healthier. But you know what's also delicious? Super-crispy and lightly oiled fries with lots of salt. You know, like the ones you get at the best diners and restaurants. Have you ever been tempted to make them at home? Now might be the time to take the leap.
Today Amazon is highlighting a deal for the Hamilton Beach deep fryer. It's on the smaller end (a two-liter oil capacity), but that's probably for the best. Right now it's on sale for $34, but it normally goes for $50. That means it's 32 percent off.
This deep fryer from Hamilton Beach has an eight-cup oil capacity, and can make up to six cups of french fries or chicken tenders at a time. The fryer comes with a couple of safety features, including a lid that you can close while deep frying and when you're lifting the basket to drain the oil. There's also "cool-touch" sides on the fryer, which basically means you won't accidentally burn yourself if you touch it while in action.
The fryer has been reviewed by over 650 people on Amazon and has a four-star rating. Many of the five-star reviews say that the fryer heats up quickly and is easy to clean. Most of the complaints in the reviews revolve around the fryer being too small.
