    Why does my faberware deepfryer say not to use peanut oil in it

    The page says as a general rule, choose oils with a high smoke point and avoid flavored oils, peanut oil adds a nutty flavor to food olive oil has a low smoke point lard and walnut oil not sure. To me looks like a recommendation a foolish one but that's all they are stating honestly think vegitabkd oil is way to over powering and makes fried foods taste bad

    Can i use peanut oil


    If feeding others, beware of peanut allergies.

    The attraction of peanut oil is it's higher smoke point, but canola or olive oil both contain far less saturated fat with canola holding a clear advantage.
    Also canola is is probably the most 'tasteless' oil of them all. For some that might be an advantage,but others prefer particular oils for their taste.
    Price point may be the final decider for you.

    While peanut oil seems to be the clear favorite for turkey fryers, there's no law that says it must be used.

    Kernels jump up and out of maker while maker is working. At least 50% of kernels are wasted. Thanks for your help.

    This won't totally solve the problem, but do the following:
    1. turn on the machine and allow to run for about a minute to allow the machine to get hot.
    2. add 1/2 again as much kernals to the popper
    3. tilt the machine back slightly while popping begins
    this should reduce your wasted kernals!

    Half the Kernals spit out uncooked

    It coud be 2 things. Either a low grade of popping corn, or old popping corn. Hot air poppers blow the same temperature, until you shut them off. Although the better grades of popping corn cost a good amount more, you don't throw half of it away. Once the popping corn container has been opened, you should use it up within about 3 months. The internal moisture content is what determines whether corn will pop or not. Too much or too little moisture will not allow the corn to pop.

    What kind of oil (vegtable or corn oil )


    Please use blended vegetable oil, pure corn oil, sunflower oil,
    soybean oil or grapeseed (canola oil) because these oils have a high
    smoke point. Peanut oil is not recommended because it greatly
    impacts the flavor.

    • Oils should never be mixed when deep frying.
    • High heat, water, and burnt food particles break down the oil’s smoke
    • Replace oil if you notice:
    - Excessive smoking at normal temperatures
    - Strong oil discoloration
    - A rancid smell
    - Excessive foaming around the frying food

    Thanks for using FixYa. Do rate the solution as Fixya if found helpful.

    Specific Oil to use?????

    I would use either a vegetable oit or peanut oil. It really doesn't matter which kind as long as you keep the coils covered or the pot filled with oil.

    Popped first few times of use

    Had the same problem so I tried different oils and different popcorn brands. Also found that the o-ring inside had melted and broken up into pieces that rattled when I shook the unit. A friend passed along some Theater Spice (buttery salt) from and their instructions said to use 6 Tablespoons of Canola Oil with 1/2 teaspoon of Theatre Spice and 1/2 cup of popcorn kernels. More oil than I wanted but damn that stuff tastes good. I now enjoy using this popper again. In short - More oil.
