Really? Cool beans!
I don't want to go the "wok route" for the reasons stated, and I've read enough about the expanded metal boxes to think that it's more work than I care to do, with the prospect of it "burning out" after some time. I figure the stainless steel fry basket should last for some while.
Thanks to all! And any more comments are still welcome!
