My new Waring 1550 commercial 240V 3850W 2 gal. capacity deep fryer.

I had to make an extension cord because the plug didn't match my 220 outlet and the cord wasn't long enough, but it's ready to fry now!

It only took 9 minutes to heat 2 gal of oil from room temp to 400. I think I'm gonna like it!

Thanx for letting me run on. I'm just kinda excited.

Just used it for the first time. I put a pound of smoked sausage on a stick, 2 Johnsonville brats on sticks, and about 1/2# frozen breaded mushrooms in it. it started off at 375. It dropped to 325, but one minute later, it was back up to 375. I thinkn I'm gonna like it.

NICE but if your gonna fry fish, 350* is the way to go. :twocents:

I love my fryer as well. I just hate to clean it even though it's fairly simple to clean.

I like 400 for thin fillets like crappie. thicker cuts like cod are OK at 350.

I will prolly have to change my thoughts though because all previous fryers dropped temp so bad when you put the meat in the oil.

I usually compromise and try to hit 375 for all deep fried seafood. I
Use a bayou classic burner and a stainless pan that I welded up. If you ain't usin Andys breading you oughta give it a try. You won't be sorry.

Sweet fryer by the way.

If it didn't matter it wouldn't matter!!!

I always had problems with fryers that heat from the bottom. The excess breading falls off the fish, settles to the bottom and then scorches, ruining the oil in the process.

I use a mixture of corn meal, corn flour and Seafood Splash seasoning. I've been refining the mix for years. I'm pretty happy with it. the main thing is that buyng ready made is so expensive.

Nice looking unit Tim, If it works like the single basket one that we have, I know you will be satisfied. We got the one basket unit because most of the time its just the two of us.

It has two smaller baskets or one large one E.T.. It runs on 220 so it's recovery time is very fast. We fry for just the two of us a lot of the time, but we also fry fish and such for a fair amount of company sometimes and not having to wait 20 minutes for the oil to come back up to temp between batches is quite a boon.

Glad its working for you Tim. My only 220 outlet is in the laundry room or the garage. Didn't give it a thought to have one put in the grill area when we built the house. E.T.
