Out of the frying pan and into the fryer…
Blog Guy, I can’t wait any longer! Has the Williams-Sonoma December catalog arrived yet? I need to get ready for the big holidays!
Yes, and naturally I was drawn to page 120, the Breville Deep Fryer, $149.95. That’s what I want for holiday entertaining, right? I mean, what says, I care about my family’s health better than immersing their food in oil? Especially with those recent studies showing we all need to raise our cholesterol levels.
Yes, of course. Try to keep up.
But if I DO want a deep fryer, this is the one to get, right?
No, I’m afraid this is the one for sissies. The one you want is on the Williams-Sonoma Website, the Timber Ridge Backyard Host Deep Fryer, just $699.95.
As the folks at Williams-Sonoma put it, “Outdoor deep-frying is a superb way to cook succulent whole turkeys, crispy French fries, tender onion rings and other favorites…”
Huzzah! That’s what I’m talking about!
The Timber Ridge holds nine gallons of oil. A gravity-fed Clean Flow filtration-cartridge system lets you reuse cooking oil up to 50 times. It’s large enough to deep-fry a 25-pound turkey.
Nope, that stuff is straight from the Website. The Timber Ridge also moves easily on two oversize wheels, which means you can use the sizzling oil to defend a medium-size 14th century English castle from a full French assault.
Wow, the Website really says that about the French assault?
Nah, I made that up. I had you going, huh?
