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.

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?
