Questions about cooking by submerging food in hot oil or fat.

In deep frying, the food to be cooked is submerged in hot oil. This provides a dry environment with very rapid heat transfer.

Deep frying is typically performed in a dutch oven or a dedicated appliance, the deep fryer.

Pan-frying is similar, but much less oil is used, and the food generally isn't submerged.
