how long can you leave the oil in the deep fryer?

Until it is no longer usable.
If the oil starts bubbling up towards the top it should be changed. This indicates it is both dirty and has too much moisture trapped in it. Oil like this will not cook properly and can be dangerous as it will overflow when used.

Has anyone had an eruption of bubbles of steam go over the top and all over the bench as the oil cools down after being rurned off for 4 minutes?. It seems like water may lie under the element until an exact temperature causes the dangerous currents, and the water hits the hot oil. I had over 2 litres of oil erupt over the top in bubbles and onto the bench
Am I the only one?

This will happen if you do not change the oil regularly.
Water from deep-fried foods builds up in the oil and eventually it froths up over the top.
It also badly affects the actual cooking of the foods.
Once you see this frothing starting, change the oil.

Hi Keith, I have had mine for years as well and I really dont like it much, gets gluggy and hard to clean, however the grandkids tell me they love the chips. So I guess being clean does not beat good chips. It serves a purpose.

Is it possible to use lard/dripping in these deep fryers, I am looking to buy one and need to know, my 94yo father likes his chips cooked in good old fashioned fat??

I have used solid oil in the fryer however you need to make sure it melts quick so the elements are not exposed for too long, I sat the solids on the elements and never had a problem with it, see how you go. I know what you mean about the lard/dripping, dad was the same.
