I cook naked and am scared of droplets of hot oil splattering over my scrotum.

I did own one for a while. I didn't use it nearly enough to be worth keeping. Since the oil would go rancid before I used it enough times to justify how much you need to put in the fryer. Plus, cleaning the fryer was an enormous pain in the ass.

This except I did use mine quite often but considering the oven could do everything I used it for easier and healthier, the disadvantages from using it greatly outweigh the advantages.

My dad had one when i was growing up. He used it several times per day. It would fill the house with the smell of rancid oil and cheap breaded frozen food because he didn't use it under any ventilation.

Yes.
The only advantage an actual deep fryer has is you don't have to pay attention to the temperature. The deep-fryer has a thermometer and takes care of it for you.

But the oil maintenance and mess potentential intimidates me.

Lots of reasons. The space it takes up. The fact it spreads oil into the air, that gets onto walls, cabinets and pretty much everything. The smell. The care required to regularly clean it.

Like honestly, it's just not worth it. Plus, even though fried foods taste nice, they're incredibly calorific and generally unhealthy.

Carnalpleasure

It require too much space and lots and lots of oil.

I'd rather eat less fried food overall but have it deep-fried properly versus getting to eat more food but have it be oven-baked or air-fried or any of those shitty "low-fat" alternatives.
Similarly, I'd rather drink less "real" soda versus more diet, or eat more foods made with actual sugar and butter versus shitty substitutes.

I don’t eat deep fried food. I have never been fat, I don’t ever intend to be fat, and The only thing that a deep frier can cook better than any other method is a bacon-wrapped hotdog. There’s a lot of different ways I would rather eat chicken or potatoes than deep fried.

Depends on how often you filter it, and what conditions you store it in. If you let nasty burnt bits sit in it, it'll go bad faster. If you store it in the fridge, it'll last longer. If you store it in the freezer it'll last a REALLY long time.

If I want fried food I can just go walk to a 24h convenience store and get some of the crap over there. I have no reason to fry something at home.

Because modern home deep fryers always break like fucking crazy if you try and use them regularly. Seriously I went through like 3 of them over two years after my old one broke. Planned obsolescence is fucking criminal.

I do own one though. It is called a, "wok" and a, "stockpot". I have baskets, but oddly they are not as easy to use as a Skimmer, because food doesn't cook at the same rate.

Use peanut oil, it doesn't splatter like other oils and is far easier to clean up. It is also tastier and smells better.

You can prevent oil from going rancid by preventing oxygen from getting to it during storage. You can reduce the amount of oxygen by using a storage container size that fits the amount of oil you need to store so there's as little an air pocket in the top as possible. I find it best to setup a huge fry up. I'll cook a week's worth of food then freeze it. That way I have a week worth of various fried foods I can pop in the toaster oven over the course of the next couple of months (pic). That way, I use up a great deal of oil at one time and only need to clean up once.

Use portion control when you eat.

Turn on your vent hood fan, don't use stinky oils/fats, and use a candy thermometer so you don't get the oil too hot, until you've learned better.

If you have a candy thermometer and a pot you can deep fry.

I'd never use it. Shallow frying in a pan is the way to go. I think deep fat frying only ever became a thing for convenience in a production kitchen since you don't have to fuss with what's in the fryer nearly as much as something in a pan.

Honestly the three things you might want a deep fryer for are french fries, fried chicken, and fried fish.

what's that thing over your wok, the attachment to put your fried food over as they dry and drip oil back into the wok?

Also, having a deep fryer in the kitchen opens up a world of garnishes. You can fry so many things into excellence without them taking stage for a dish.

Discovered last week fried capers, after about 4 minutes @300F they bloom and get really pretty.

This is why you save the oil for frying again LATER.

The whole thing about a deep fryer is that you don't have to worry about oil fires because there is no exposed flame to start a fire.

I always grew up with a deep fryer at home and we used it quite a bit. I would like to have one, but don't really have the kitchen space and I don't know how often I would use it. When I am craving fried food, I just put oil in a pot. Not as convenient, but whatever.

Filter it, put it in a glass jar, pop in fridge to save for later.

The best part is that it gets more flavorful the more you use it.

Eventually, you can use it to make a kitchen sink aioli or mayo.

Also, no matter how hard you clean it, short of using a sand blaster, the oil builds up and bakes on.

I only use a steel wok any more for deep frying.

Having nasty food bits in your oil makes it go bad faster. Skimming it is good, filtering it is even better if you care to spring for one, but for the casual user it's a little much.
If you use bad oil it's going to smoke at a lower temperature and it'll make your food taste funny.
