    Default Aluminum or Stainless Steel Fish Fryer?

    I am in the market for a new fish fryer. Should I get aluminum or stainless steel?

    While aluminum will get the job done, I would buy stainless.
    Listen to your gut over all the other voices.

    Getting the oil to the exact right temperature is important, as we all know. Keeping it at that temperature is tricky. Obviously overwhelming the fryer by adding too much fish should be avoided, but it sure helps to have some iron helping to moderate things for you.
    The memories of a great day cannot be contained within a cooler.

    I've got to hold a spot here for a picture of an aluminum fish fryer bottom. More when I get the picture.

    I use a cast iron pot. Holds temperature better than either of those you mentioned. Stainless steel if you want one or the other. I have an aluminum pot that I’ll let the kids borrowed but my cast iron stays with me and doesn’t get used unless by me.

    Cast iron or better yet, get a Cajun Fryer! Itís amazing and comes in multiple sizes. Iíve used one for 2 years without failure. Cajun Fryer Archives - Cajun Fryer

    My recommendation would be start with an electrical unit with digital thermostat and go from there.
