While the Fryin' Saucer, an outdoor propane deep fryer, can't perform as many tricks as the similarly-fashioned Blacktop 360 Party Hub grill, it is much more compact and portable, and could prove be kingdom come for anyone whose first true love in the food preparation world is that which is battered, dunked, and sizzled crisp.
The folding Fryin' Saucer weighs just 18 pounds and assembles in 2 minutes or less for heating and oil-ambushing anything from french fries in the backyard to fishes down by the river. A 1 lb propane cylinder will provide enough fuel for up to 3 hours of frying, and the economical 1-gallon capacity oil basket will feed 8 to 10 bellies in as little as 30 minutes.
The Saucer has a 13,000 BTU gas burner and 3 temperature settings. Its surrounding sloped rim allows excess oil from cooked foods to drain back into the basket, plus stays hot and keeps fried shrimp, fried onions, fried chicken, fried mozzarella sticks, and fried oysters warm until everyone is ready to grub. The fry basket can also be filled with water for boiling foods such as pasta and eggs.
