Sexy Nerd, frustrated by the many smoke detector false alarms in our home, has been suggesting I buy a deep fryer. I was reading reviews on Amazon to find just the right one, when I came across the Presto 06006 Kitchen Kettle Electric Multi-Cooker and Fryer. It can be used as a fryer and a steamer, in a sort of dietary yin yang. Score! As a surprise bonus, someone had written the following...err...helpful review:
"very handy as it does a lot of different things well and doesn't take lots of precious kitchen space not like republicans in washington"
WHAT?! I was on the fence before, but now they're hogging all the space in my kitchen? Geez.
