Brylane Home Digital Double Deep Fryer Review & GIVEAWAY!!!

Deep Fryer 1

I received the Brylane Home Digital Double Deep Fryer at no cost for the purpose of facilitating this review.

If there is one thing we know how to do in the South - it's frying! Give us some peanut oil and flour and we can make crispy miracles happen using just about any edible element. I had never made the leap to buying a deep fryer, I always just used my trusty skillet, so when I had the opportunity to test out the Brylane Home Digital Double Deep Fryer, I immediately began to think of all of the things currently in my fridge and my cupboard I could throw into that deep vat of hot oil. My meal plan for the night was spaghetti and meatballs (my son Elijah's favorite) and I decided to add a little more fun to dinner by serving up my own version of Fried Asparagus with a Creamy Southwest Dip. After I had prepared my asparagus, I set to work getting my new deep fryer ready for action.

Not only is this stainless steel appliance quite the handsome addition to my kitchen, but it is also super easy to set up. Here are some of its features (taken from the Brylane Home website):
  • measures: 19"H x 13"W x 18"L
  • double design with two 12 cup fryers
  • with see-thru windows, digital temperature controls, splatter-protect lid, stainless steel housing
  • 1500 watts. 120V.
  • ETL listed
  • hand wash
The digital temperature/timer control makes entering the cook temperature and time so easy! I don't have the biggest kitchen in the world, so storage is always an issue. Every little bit helps, and its the extra attention to even the smallest details (like the fold in handle on the frying baskets) that makes the Brylane Home Digital Double Deep Fryer stand out above the rest.

There are so many benefits to the Brylane Home Digital Double Deep Fryer. If you have ever fried foods in a skillet or in a pot over the stove, you know all too well the steps you have to go through to make sure the food is cooked properly. To begin frying up your latest creation, simply start by plugging in the deep fryer unit. There are two cords - one for each side, which enables you to use just one side or both. Select the temperature you would like to fry the food in (no more manual temperature taking), then select how long you would like the unit to maintain the hot oil. For example - if you are throwing in some chicken nuggets for the kids and you know you need to fry them for about 8 minutes you would want to set the timer for about 25 to 30 minutes (time for the oil to heat up to the correct temperature, plus cook time on the food). With two separate units you are able to choose two separate times for two different food cook times. Once the timer runs down the fryer will automatically turn the heating mechanism off and begin lowering the temperature of the oil. I love this feature because, as many busy moms know, sometimes in the busyness of getting food on the table, we can forget to turn off the stove, or the oven, or in this case, the fryer - but this safety feature takes care of all of that for you.

Although my family loves my fried chicken, I always hated, not only getting splashed by hot oil as I placed it in the pan and turned it to cook on both sides, but I hated cleaning up my stove after the whole process was over - What a mess! This deep fryer keeps my hands from the bite of hot oil and allows me to fry whole pieces of chicken in one shot, no more turning over the food I'm frying. My food is cooked evenly all the way around and I don't have to clean up a huge mess afterwards. I appreciate the ability to hang the frying baskets on the hook at the top of each unit to allow the access oil to drip off before I move it to my serving dish. With this double fryer, I have so many options. I can fry more of the same food at one time, or I can fry two different foods, at two different temperatures, at two different times, in two different types of oil! The Brylane Home Digital Double Deep Fryer is a must have appliance, especially for anyone who loves their Southern comfort food. Everything you could want in a deep fryer (safety, large frying units, storing ability, and versatility) can be found in this effective and simple to use cooking tool. With the Brylane Home Digital Double Deep Fryer, you will be looking for any excuse to add a little something fried to your dinnertime menu. Want to purchase your own Digital Double Deep Fryer?
