So, i am going to need to deep fry, oil about 300 degrees. Can i put a large pot of oil in the oven, either at 300-325 and leave it til the oil temperature is 300, or at a higher temp like 400 until the oil temp. comes up to 300, and then proceed to deep fry in this pot of oil with the whole thing in the oven? I know that the oil temperature is the most important thing for deep frying, does the heat source for the oil matter? so in this case, the heat source is just an oven instead of bottom-only flame heat.
Make sense? Is there a reason not to attempt this?
Thanks everyone, this is my first time posting as i have always been able to find an answer to anything with the search.
