As somebody who is addicted to chips I find it disappointing that there don't seem to be any decent chip shops around these days. Oil used is of the cheap kind and it is used over and over until the smell is qute off-putting. I can't remember when I last saw a decent crisp, golden chip coming from one of those places. They seem always to be soggy.
Numerous domestic fryers have bitten the dust in our house. All have suffered from the same problem. The amount of oil they contain is so small that it cools down as soon as the food is dipped into it, with the result that everything sticks together and come out either undercooked, or as a congealed mass, or both.
About fifteen years ago I invested in a Magimix Pro at a cost of £100. The price is the same today. For fifteen years I have managed to produce chips that are universally admired. The old machine 's thermostat finally died so I have just replaced it with the latest model. I would never dream of buying any other make. The results it produces in any deep frying job are just unbeatable. Cleaning is a breeze, as the basket is totally detachable and can be washed with detergent in the sink.
I've just made myself hungry so I'm off to fry some chips - double cooked, in groundnut oil.
