When you deep-fry something, the right heat level is important. In my recipe blog, I show you the heat level depending on the dish, but in this article, I share how to check the heat level. This information is fundamental.

The fundamental way to check the heat level

We use the wooden chopsticks when check the heat level.When you use wooden chopsticks, wet them. Then wipe off the water. We put the chopsticks in a hot oil, and look at the state of oil.

The state of heat level

I introduce how to check the three types of heat level. You can set the right heat level if you make sure the state below.

A Low Temperature (150-160 degrees)

When you put chopsticks to the oil, the small bubbles come out slowly from the tip of them. If you can make sure the state, it’s ready to deep-fry.

A Medium Temperature (170-180 degrees)

When you put the chopsticks to the oil, the small bubbles come out constantly from the whole chopsticks. If you can make sure the state, it’s ready to deep-fry.

A High Temperature (190-200 degrees)

As soon as you put the chopsticks to the oil, the big bubbles come out with great force from the whole chopsticks. If you can make sure the state, it’s ready to deep-fry.

Try one more if the oil is not heated rightly

One of the most important points for deep-frying is to set the right heat level.

When you check the heat level, the oil may be not heated sometimes. In the case if it, continue to heat it up, and make sure these state one more, and start to deep-fry. By doing so, you can make deep-fried food crispy.
