While most fried recipes can be made on the stove in a heavy bottomed pan, electric deep fryers are worth it in terms of temperature regulation. An internal thermometer prevents oil from overheating and regulates the temperature during cooking, which means you don't have to worry about raising or lowering the heat like you would on the stove, or fussy thermometers.
If you plan on deep-frying often, you might want to consider a deep fryer with a small footprint so you can keep it out on your counter without hogging up too much space. Stainless steel housing and digital control panels look sleek on countertops.

The lid is equipped with a filter to minimize cooking odors and the oil container and frying basket are dishwasher safe. It has a compact footprint that can be stored easily and can fry up to 3/4 pound of food.
