Personally dont fry any food
#2
Air fry if I fry anything and I never even put the teaspoon of oil in no point

Some informative replies above! I'm sure they are helpful.

I don't have a set amount of times for the oil, I just use it till it smells to much or smokes, then change it. I have never done fish but have had popcorn chicken and sausage in the same oil as chips!

Don't fry your food but oven bake it instead. The high temperatures cause the oil to produce aldehydes which are dangerous to health.

Also it doesn't set off smoke alarms

To scared to do chips - fireman told terrifying stories of why they say 'ban the pan' only oven chips for me - real chips from the chippy on occasion.

Deep fry chips once a week. I usually change the oil when it gets a few shades darker - so maybe every 8 weeks - which is 8 uses.
BTW OP - I saw your post re Lidl frying chips. I agree with you, they were/are some of the best I've found, especially at that price. Have you asked if they're being discontinued - which would be a shame.
Also, oven chips are yuk in comparison, but all things in moderation.

Use a veg peeler to make thin slices of potato. Rinse them well and dry thou roughly. Fry until crisp let them drip then put in kitchen roll to absorb excess oil. Season with salt and pepper. Voila beautiful home made crisps. Also good to do with other veg.

I thick cut my unwashed potatoes, (Skins on cos i'm lazy) plonk them in a boiling pan of water for 5 minutes to get rid of the starch and to clean them, meanwhile the Deepfat fryer is heating up - Pour out the water n leave 'chips' ready until fryer is green light - then dunk them in for 4-5 minutes take out - wait a minute or two then back in for 30secs to 1 minutes - Lazy Thrice cooked chips - Lovely - Have it once a week- as for the oil, once a year unless theres alot of black crap on my chips cos I cooked something weird.

Living is bad for your health, I would rather have chips that were nice than soft oven chips and live an extra few months dribbling into my lap in a care home

Too scared to do chips? What the FIREFIGHTER told you was in regards to old style chip pans that you placed on a hob, not the electric ones we've been using for the past few decades

Yes I asked and they said they have stopped them. I have started using there oven chips cheaper at 50p per kg but they seem not cook evenly.

i do sometimes but it's not too practical and the prices have gone up so kinda not worth it anymore.use to do It all the time about 5 6 years ago when the prices were less compared to ready made chips. usually make chips 1 times a week and chipping peeling and cutting them and cooking 2kg worth of chips takes about 1.5 hours vs bag of 2kg chips about 30 mins.

never knew the oil can smell u must use it for a very long time.
#22
Change it when it smells or looks bad.

As for fish and chicken in the fryer it will make it smell and anything after you put in with have a slight taste of it.
#23
If you're just doing chips, you'll be OK for a while. But if you're cooking chicken, the fat from it will spoil the oil much quicker.

My parents and now myself have always used pan on the hob there's no risks of you know what you're doing and are competent. Most Asians (read as Indians) I know use a pan on the hob and none that I know have ever had a fire due to it. then again I don't actually know anyone who has had a house fire that wasn't set by arsonists who got the wrong house and almost killed a young mother.
