Deep fryers are sold in the household and kitchen goods section of many chain stores, such as Wal-Mart, Family Dollar, Kohls and Sears, and local department stores. They can also be found at specialty kitchen stores, such as Kitchen and Company, and local appliance stores.
Basic deep fryers are available year round. Larger deep fryers such as those used for cooking turkey are available seasonally at department and home improvement stores. Turkey fryers are found in the barbecue section of Lowe's, Home Depot and local hardware stores. Smaller deep fryers are found in the home appliance section of these stores. Restaurant supply stores carry new and used deep fryers and those made for frequent commercial use.
