Cuisinart’s Cast-Iron Chicken Fryer Could Replace Your Dutch Oven

Cuisinart’s very good cast-iron chicken fryer isn’t just for frying chickens, and is modestly discounted today.


The Dutch oven is a kitchen essential. Few pieces of cook or kitchenware are as multifunctional as the Dutch oven, and even fewer have the potential to outlive you. That all said, they are often pricey and large (especially the oval-shaped ones), two qualifying factors that don’t agree with everyone’s kitchen situation.

Enter, the chicken fryer, savior of small stovetops. More specifically, Cuisinart’s discounted chicken fryer, which, like all chicken fryers, is lighter, smaller, cheaper and more humble than their Dutch oven counterparts. They are no less functional, though — the chicken fryer, despite its weirdly exclusive name, is essentially a miniature Dutch oven with cutouts to drain sauces (or frying oil). Those pour spouts also create a lid that isn’t airtight (though no dutch oven lids are airtight at all), which allows more liquid to boil off, making it ideal for reducing soups and other liquid-heavy dishes (I’m talking about chili) into a thicker, richer spot.

Cuisinart’s chicken fryer is modestly discounted 15 percent today.
