I appreciate eveyone's comments about pressure cookers. However, This thing we've got is a big deep fryer(I think). I guess it's what they use at fast food restuarants.
We just had a guy come look at it and it's going to cost 500-600 dollars to fix it. I'm so angry. The owner is going to spend 500 dollars to make fried chicken in what he assured me was a "fine dining" restaurant when I told him I would run it for him, but I can't get the door on our 15 year old convection oven to shut and he doesn't seem to care about that.
There's got to be something cool I can do with this thing. Maybe some kind of tempura vegetables or crazy garnishes.
Honestly, when I think of the combination of hot oil, high pressure and a machine of undeterminate age, I get a little nervous myself.
