Is it possible to pressure fry at home?

Dylan | Aug 29, 2004 10:14 PM

Most people know that one of the "secrets" to KFC (personally, I'm a fine of the stuff) is the fact that they fry it in a pressure cooker. Now, an industrial pressure fryer is a pretty scary thing to have in the house. In theory, presumably frying in a normal pressure cooker would accomplish the same thing, but the whole process sounds somewhat dangerous, because you have no real way of knowing how hot the oil is getting.

Does anyone know a way to pressure fry at home? Or, is there a pressure cooker that has a thermometer built in, in addition to the pressure gauge?
