Is The Oil Hot Enough?


How many times do you heat up the oil in a frying pan and wonder if it’s hot enough? I know everyone has their own way of doing this but it usually involves dropping something into the oil. Use this simple tip to determine when the oil is ready without splattering the oil from dropping something into it. Click on my short video below to see how.


Believe it or not, my husband is the one that gave me this tip years ago!

I guess I’ll keep him around!

  1. Wow, that is a pretty good tip. I also use the water technique, but will switch to this one and save some skin. Thank your husband for me Diane.

  2. Yes, I’d keep him around, if I were you, Diane. Great tip I’d never heard before. Also, I’m impressed with your video. I don’t have the slightest idea how to put a video on my blog. I do well to insert photos! LOL!
