5 Best Fish Fryers

1. Bayou Classic B159, Outdoor Fish Cooker with Cast Iron Fry Pot

Our Experience
Are you looking to get that classic crisp on that perfect salmon without the hassle of managing the appropriate temperature? Look no further because the Bayou Classic Fish Fryer will deliver just the right results for you.

It is no secret that cast iron cooking utensils have been used since ancient times for preparing delectable dishes. This is because it helps maintain the perfect cooking temperature and facilitates even heat distribution.

This Fish Cooker with its 8.5 quarts cast iron fry pot does the same for your dishes.

It packs in all the essential flavors of the food instead of letting them escape. So, you get a burst of flavors every time you sink your teeth into your fried or cooked fish.

The cooker includes a high-pressure burner with adjustable regulator with braided metal LPG hose and a perforated aluminum frying basket.

It also comes with a Dutch oven lid that prevents the oil from splashing over and a 21” tall welded steel frame that provides complete windscreen protection.

You can easily fry chicken, french fries or hush puppies or cook gumbo, chili or jambalaya in this cooker.

Pros & Cons
Cast iron fry pot packs all favors.
Can cook chicken, french fries and other items easily.
14” diameter cooking surface.
Welded steel frame provides 360 degrees windscreen protection.
Can be quite expensive.

2. Bayou Classic 700-701 4-Gallon Bayou Fryer Stainless Steel

Our Experience
This classic fryer is from the brand of Bayou as well. This is a fine 4-gallon stainless steel deep-fryer that involves superior technology to bring an even finish to all of your favorite dishes.

It comes with double stainless frying baskets, a temperature gauge and drain valves that lets you make all of your favorite deep-fried snacks by maintaining the perfect frying temperature.

It includes a unique V-bottom design that keeps the base oil temperature cooler than the frying temperature at the top. This prevents any batter from getting burnt and keeps the oil clean.

This helps you to fry delicate whole fishes with ease more so because of the spacious frying area it offers.

This system includes a 10-PSI regulator kit with a stainless-steel braided hose. The heat that flows from the propane enters the fryer through its rear tube and rolls over the oil inside as it evens out.

However, this frying system could be a little tricky to clean out.

Pros & Cons
Features a V-bottom and ‘no-scorch’ design.
Deep fries almost anything.
Great for outdoor cooking purpose.
Keeps oil clean.
Expensive.
Tough to maintain.

3. King Kooker 1618 16-Inch Propane Outdoor Cooker With Aluminium Pan And 2 Frying Baskets

Our Experience
The King Kooker propane outdoor cooker is a pretty nice choice if you want to fry a big batch of snacks at one go.

It is an efficient portable outdoor propane fryer that features a 16 inch tall welded metal frame and an aluminum pan holding two large frying baskets.

It comes with a 54,000-BTU CSA-certified burner with LP hose and regulator with a type-1 connection that lets you have the correct amount of heat for frying your seafood or any other item to a perfect golden brown finish. It also features heat-resistant handles for safety purposes.

This system also includes a deep-fry thermometer that lets you control the temperature so that the food doesn’t get overcooked or burnt. And, you also get an additional recipe and instruction booklet with the fryer.

Yet, it should be kept in mind that it could be a little short in its overall standing height and since it doesn’t have a lid, can lead to oil spillage.

Pros & Cons
Cooks a large batch.
CSA-certified burner.
Comes with a deep-fry thermometer.
Appropriate for outdoor use.
Short in standing height.
The quality could be better.

4. T-Fal FR8000 Deep Fryer with Basket

Our Experience
Now, you might not have heard of the T-fal brand, but they are quite experienced with manufacturing affordable kitchen appliances and utensils. In fact, the T-fal FR8000 absolutely deserves a spot on this list.

However, it’s not the quality of the frying mechanism that caught our attention. Sure, it’s quite good on its own. But, it’s the ease of cleaning that makes it one of our favorite fish fryers.

So, how exactly does it work? Well, it just takes 3 simple steps. First, you need to flip the switch to “Automatic Oil Filtration.” Then, drain the hot oil and leave it for some time to cool off. Once it’s cool, you can store the oil for later use or dispose it if you feel it’s too dirty.

Finally, you need to remove the parts and put them in the dishwasher. Yes, that’s right! The T-fal FR8000 has dishwasher safe parts. Does it get any more convenient than that? I don’t think so.

But, that doesn’t mean the FR8000 is perfect. This product doesn’t come with a timer, and that might be a deal breaker for some. Moreover, some of the parts of this deep fryer just doesn’t feel as sturdy as the competition.

If T-fal can improve the build quality and add a timer, we might just have a new winner on our hands.

Pros & Cons
Cleaning mechanism is extremely intuitive and easy
The automatic oil filtration system is unique to the T-fal Deep Fryers
Well priced
Lacks a timer
Some of the parts aren’t built well

5. Hamilton Beach 35034 Deep Fryer

Our Experience
If you are looking for a mess-free way of deep-frying your fish or chicken or your favorite potato wedges, then this should be just the appropriate deep fryer for you.

The Hamilton Beach 35034 features a 12 cup food capacity that is perfect when you have to feed a large group. It also comes with double baskets that lets you prepare two separate items at the same time.

It includes an adjustable timer with an audible tone and temperature control feature for getting those classic golden unscorched fries.

The lowest temperature is 140 degrees for this fryer, and the highest is 375 degrees. The power cord attaches to the fryer magnetically and runs no risk of snagging. Also, the lid prevents the oil from splattering while cooking.

However, this fryer does not come with a filter and requires a lot of oil to deep fry owing to its size.

Pros & Cons
Easy to clean and assemble.
Dishwasher safe.
Cooks a large amount of food.
Proper safety features.
Does not have a filter.
The lid is not attached to the body.
