We love our FryDaddy also, but we tried coconut oil at your suggestion and it made our house stink. Never again.

Oh, man, what are you doing to me?

This is the last thing I need. The fact that it is somewhat challenging to deep fry with a pot and a candy thermometer and maintain temps is the only thing keeping me from deep frying sh!t all the time…

I got the same model at Fred Meyer for $15. It seriously upped my falafel game.

We had both when I was a kid…

And bread crusts! Be sure to only eat bread with the crust removed. (Who knew that those fussy little kids who demand the crust be cut from their sandwiches are actually present health conscious consumers seeking to reduce their cancer risk!)

Acrylamide doesn’t appear to be in raw foods themselves. It’s formed when certain starchy foods are cooked at high temperatures (above about 250° F)

Above 250F?! Well I guess I’m signed up for cancer. On my tombstone: Crispy roasted potatoes for life, until death.

I thought we were all about the air fryers these days?
