How much oil goes in a fryer?
You’ll need at least 3 inches (4 to 6 cups) of oil to deep fry most items, so your pan should be able to accommodate that much oil and have plenty of room for the food you will add without spilling over. Deep 1. 5 to 2 gallon (6 to 8 quart) pots or pans are ideal. Aug 1, 2017
