I told you making homemade french fries and seasoning salt was simple! A countertop deep fryer has been one of my families best investments for the kitchen. I feel a lot safer using a small appliance dedicated to frying versus using a large pot to deep fry food on the stovetop.

Don’t forget to invest in a good potato peeler!

Having a good peeler in your kitchen drawer is key to great meals using potatoes. You can either use a manual peeler, which allows you to peel the potatoes by hand, or an electric peeler that will peel potatoes more quickly.

What are some of your favorite foods to fry at home? Do you typically use a countertop deep fryer or do you prefer frying on your stovetop?
