No supersize here. Chef's Catalog

Like tortilla chips with a burrito, or soup with a sandwich, french fries served with a burger pair together perfectly. However, just because fries and a burger go so well together doesn't always mean I have one with the other. If I'm just making a burger for myself, chances are I'll pass on the fries all together--it's just not worth it to heat up a large vat of oil for a single meal. Therefore, as perfect as my burger may be, its complement is usually noticeably missing. (Still, sometimes I cheat and run down to the corner burger joint to pick up an order of fries.)

The Deni Mini Deep Fryer makes it easy to fry up smaller portions of your favorite foods. With only a one-quart capacity, corn or vegetable oil is quickly heated, meaning that batch of fried deliciousness is only minutes away. The removable fry basket with detachable handle settles firmly into the heated oil, and the integrated lid keeps splattering to a minimum. When done, the basket rests along the edge for easy draining.

Easy to use with one-dial operation, the mini deep fryer is almost too easy to use. At least with the larger models if you want some fried deliciousness, you have to work for it a little harder. Now, heating up some oil is quick and easy, meaning no homemade burger need go without fries. While the convenience of fried food may be both a blessing and a curse, at least we know that delicious side of fries won't be supersized.
