Where do I chuck my deep fryer oil

meltingmoment, Mar 24, 11:09pm
Not down the sink, is that correct?

That's correct. Got an empty milk bottle? I usually put it in a bottle, then out with the rubbish.

cool thanks. I asked in Parenting as well and got told off for cooking in a deep fryer.

scarey over there, so I just posted this over there, got me curious about deep frying so did some googling. What do you think?

Deep frying does not actually make the food greasy if it is done properly. What happens is the water in the food repels the oil. However, the hot oil also boils the water within the food, and steams the food from the inside out. As long as the oil is hot enough and the food is not immersed in the oil for too long, no oil will enter the food itself. If the food stays in the oil too long, the water will steam out and the oil will penetrate the food. If the oil is too cool, the food won't be done before this happens.

It's a pity you're notnear me. My husband uses waste oil to fuel his furnace.

God just cleaned it, what a horrible job. Feel sticky. How do you cut through the grease? I cleaned the parts that were removable in hot soapy water, but what about the inside and outside. Tried hot soapy water on outside, then spray and wipe, what else would be good to cut through grease?

I'm from parenting lol and i deep fry lmao, we use the oil from ours for other cooking too, ie roasting and pan frying, as low income = make most of what oil we have lol, i use to just freeze my old stuff with my food scraps, and put in rubbish bag morning of collection to reduce the mess animals make, now
we have a wheelie bin plus chooks and ducks so food scraps get cooked and fed to them lol

edit for spelling.

I'm from parenting too... well I'm a floater really... . . and I LOVE my deep fryer! ! And I feed my 3 young children food cooked in the deep fryer too! ! ! Oh the horror! !
Anyway... . I always keep the oil bottle, then put the old oil back into it and put it in a rubbish bag (as much as it pains me! ! )
Do you have a dishwasher? ? All the fryer bits should be able to go in it. Or soak over night in hot water with about a cup of napisan (works well on oven trays/racks too! ! )

Selleys sugar soap cuts through the grease. Just fill the sink up with hot water and put in sugar soap. Rinse well, cleans our deep fryer a treat
