Tabletop Commercial Fryers- Electric versus Propane?

lestblight | Apr 22, 201209:26 AM     4

I am doing a little outdoor food venture and need to deep fry a few things.

I will need a table top.. 10 pound or so fryer.

I am not sure what is better- Electric or gas/propane.

I have heard that electric ones dont work as well but i am not sure if thats for the cheap ones you can pick up at bed bath etc.

I will have access to electricity - But i will be using this for a few other things- So I am worried about overloading. ( I imagine the fryer consumes alot of electricity)

As for Gas.. how long will a 20 pound cylinder get me if im firing it up for 6 or 7 hours?

and finally - does anyone recommend any brands? Cecilware? etc.

thank you so much
