Does using a deep fryer for fish effect 1: the taste of other things fried in the oil. 2: how frequently the oil needs to be replaced or stored between uses.

In short do I need separate oil for deep frying fish and vegetables, pastries... ?

1 Answer 1


Yes, Yes, and Yes.


  • Incidentally, fish isn't the worst food for the lifetime of your oil. Sugary things are.
