Rated 5 out of 5 by 1Handyman Great Fish Fryer for the money Great fryer for the price! I purchased this fryer for fish and have used it many times. So far all is good descent burner, Good propane hookup with regulator, solid base, i especially like the cast iron pot it really helps keep the temp. up and the heat is even. I have cooked whole wings in peanut oil and they are great with a little old bay seasoning. The basket is good quality but I do prefer a stainless wire mesh basket. It also comes with a temp thermometer but it is a little on the cheap side you might want to upgrade, I did. The fryer was shipped neatly but the bag of nuts & bolts was open and they were all over the box. Overall GREAT PRODUCT! The cast iron pot is worth it alone. July 2, 2012

A:It depends on where you plan on using it. In one of the buildings at work would be a no, you might want to talk to safety. In housing you can or use it on the porch like you would a turkey fryer. We cook outside at work and set up table and run extension cords. Hope this helps.
A:Used Crisco Shorting to coat both the pot and lid, inside and out, then baked upside down in preheated oven at 450 degrees for 1 hour. Let cool to room temp and repeat.
A:From Lodge Cast Iron web site: http://www.lodgemfg.com/use-care-se...
Apply a thin, even coating of MELTED solid vegetable shortening (or cooking oil of your choice) to the cookware (inside and out).
Place aluminum foil on the bottom rack of the oven to catch any dripping.
Set oven temperature to 350 – 400 degrees F.
Place cookware upside down on the top rack of the oven.
Bake the cookware for at least one hour. After the hour, turn the oven off and let the cookware cool in the oven.
Store the cookware uncovered, in a dry place when cooled.

6.5 quart cast iron Dutch oven pot—better heat distribution and easier oil temperature regulation
•Aluminum strainer basket with cool touch plastic-coated handle
•Also comes with a CSA-approved regulator and hose and a 5'' deep-fry thermometer
Details:is the iron cooker for deep frying fish seasoned for cooking other things like fish stew
A:Yes, the cast iron fish fryer is seasoned to a point. However, all cast iron should be seasoned before use. It will make the item last longer. You could cook the same type of foods you would use in a dutch oven.
“It can be used for just about any kind of food they can cook in a Dutch oven. In essence, that is what you have, a Dutch oven and a fish fryer base. It has a world of more uses than just frying wings, fish, and side dishes like onion rings and fries. It works great for stews and soups. The big advantage to cast iron is it spreads the heat more evenly than aluminum or stainless steel. You can actually bake in it by putting it on coals from a fire and putting some coals on top.”
Details:I would like to use it for chicken wings and fries as well
A:Use the thermometer that comes with it. It has the capabilities of getting twice that hot.
A:will heat up to 425 but I dont recomend it I keep the temp around 375-385 deg.

A:This unit has no problem heating oil to350 degrees in a short amount of time. In fact, you'll have to back it off after it gets going to avoid going over 350 degrees.
A:If the unit comes with a burner and rulator hose that works, then I feel you would have no problem reaching that temp. Once I installed a nearly identical burner from my dad's old turkey fryer, I got up to 350 in no time and could have gone up to ver 400, no proble.
