Keep the odor and mishaps away
The Mixed Stew crew like to keep a portable burner on-hand for deep frying outdoors whenever possible. Why do we do this? Well, we like to keep the annoying deep-fry scent from overwhelming the kitchen and rest of the house. Also, remember that there’s always a fire hazard when dealing with hot or heated cooking oils. Accidental kitchen fires, no matter how small, can do major damage. Never leave freshly heated cooking oil, or cooking oil that you’ve heated to smoking point, unattended since accidents may occur. Plus, if you fry outdoors or are lucky enough to have an "outside kitchen" you may avoid that layer of oil that seems to rest in the kitchen after a frying session.
