When I deep fry battered shrimp, it sticks to the wire basket when I try to remove it after cooking. It is very difficult to get off. I have the oil about 375 and I use a batter consisting of flour,water,salt,oil and egg.
I really like the shrimp, so I hope that you can offer me some suggestions to correct this problem.
I have this problem to. i think the best way to fix it is to drop the basket in the oil with the lid open, then carefully drop the food directly into the oil, that should cause the batter on the bottom to firm up a bit before resting on the basket. hope that helps.

coating the food in batter slowly dip it into the oil allowing the item to get
coated generously before dropping to the bottom of the fry basket. After a few seconds it is helpful to then
lightly shake the fry basket.
Hi there:- You mean the products you put into the deep fryer stick to the basket or sunk down to the bottom and stick to the bottom basket. It can be a number of reasons but the most important is the temperature of the oil, it should be 350 degree F or more to do the frying , any temperature below that will be call boiling not frying. Secondly the batter mix ( you should try out and make your own batter mix ) Hope this can help.
Hi, this one is a bit tricky: you have to drop the basket first, hold on to one end of the fish without burning your fingers, and give the batter a minute - the whole piece will start to float when the batter starts to cook. You need to flip it over with tongs to cook it completely.
If you are battering your fish yourself, all you need to do is slowly submerge the fish into the oil, in increments of 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and then 100%. You can do this in less than 30 seconds, you're just giving the batter time to "set". Also, about 30 seconds after the entire fish is submerged in oil, give the basket a good shake. This should dislodge it from the bottom of the basket. Keep your eye on things as the fish is frying.
If it's pre-battered fish, then just drop it in, wait about 30-45 seconds and give the basket a good shake, as I said before.
Oil darkens with use the oil food molecules burn when subjected to high prolonged heat.
When frying foods such as fish or chicken use the oil once.
Do not filter oil over to reuse. Storing the oil in the refrigerator
may extend the life of the oil, this should not be done ever. This
process of chilling the oil and then burning the oil to room
temperature causes excessive splattering furing the heat up.
Storing the covered oil in a cool dark place, for up to three
months. ( remember to check oil when you use for color, smell, or
excessive foaming. Throw out if there is signs of all the above.
This unit has a warranty for one year from the day of purchase.
When starting let unit reheat 7-10 minutes. This will get the heat
to desired temperature. Re4ady light will cycle on/off during frying as
temperature fluctuates due to food load.
Types of foods cooking: temperatures and time of cooking
Chicken strips 375 F. 5-8 minutes
Chicken pieces, bone-in 375 F. 15-20 minutes
Fish, battered 340 F. 8-10 minutes
French fries, frozen 375F. 3-5 minutes
F375F. 3-5 minutes
Onion rings 375 F. 3-5 minutes
Shrimp, breaded 375 F. 2-5 minutes
When frying frozen food if iced rub off lose as this can make the
temperature of oil cool down. Pre-cooked frozen food cooks faster and
does not come out oily.
I cannot wait to start cooking in mine as I got it for a christmas gift. Great recipes in the owners manual:
Apples fritters yum yum,beer batter for fish or chicken, deep fried
chicken , chicken Kiev, quick doughnut made from biscuits, add topping
of ground cinnamon and suger.
Place the oil tub in the housing, and put the control unit on the back of the housing with the heating element inside the oil tub. Put room temperature (not chilled) shortening and/or lard in the oil tub. (Solid fats make better french fries, IMO.) Put the unit where you aim to cook, on a clear expanse of counter, where no one will knock it off. You are about to make boiling oil, and the potential for injury is truly medieval. Attach the magnetic power cord to the back of the control unit, and position the unit with the front of the control unit, which is at the back of the oil tub, facing you. Plug it into the wall. The magnetic cord attachment is easily knocked off, which is a safety feature, so don't knock it. If it comes off, just put it back on and restart the unit. Push button at lower right of control unit that looks like a 0 and 1 superimposed on each other. This is the power button. Put the lid on the unit with the two slots on top of the lid facing towards the front of the unit where you are. These two slots are where the basket will sit, but you haven't used the basket yet. Adjust the temperture using the + and- buttons. 375 is good for french fries. Now wait until the red light goes out and the green light (I believe) stays on. Now it's up to temperature and you can cook. Put frozen or washed and patted-dry (with a towel) french fried potatoes or battered fish or whatever you want to cook in the wire basket. Quickly lower the basket into the oil and replace the lid: back edge goes down first, then front of lid last. Set the unit's timer if desired, or just use your own timer. It will beep at you when your time is up. When you're done, you can wash the basket by hand or in the dish washer and wipe the unit off with a warm soapy dish cloth. Wait until the oil is cool to room temp before attempting to put the unit in a cupboard. Very hazardous with large potential for mess otherwise!
