I’m looking to finally take the leap into home deep frying. I have a heavy le creuset Dutch oven but don’t want to use it to fry (or deal with the mess). I’m interested in a separate appliance - preferably one that is efficient, healthier or less messy.
I’m confused by the new “air fryers” too- how do they work? Do they work well at all, or would they do disservice to my grandmother’s fried chicken recipe or my mother’s arrancini? Should I just stick with the less healthy but effective oil deep fryer? And what kind of oil is Best????
