Eat

PhillyBite10Deep fat fryers do exactly what their name suggests: anything that you put into them will be deep-fried in the fat you add (usually vegetable or sunflower oil).

Meat with skin will generally form a crispy coating when deep-fried, while thinly-sliced vegetables tend to turn into crisps or chips.
