Giveaway - Brylane Home Deep Fryer Review and Giveaway

Disclaimer:  I received the following product from BrylaneHome to facilitate my review and giveaway.  As always all opinions are 100% my own.  Thanks to the #sponsor for providing this package. 

We're two holidays down with only News Years left to go in the crazy busy holiday season, but that doesn't mean the gift giving has to stop.
Thanks to BrylaneHome, Julie and I are collaborating again to bring you another awesome giveaway with our latest reviews.

When BrylaneHome asked me chose a product to review, I already had one in mind.  This old Southern house was hurtin' for some fried chicken and I was hurtin' for a better way to cook it.  Who needs the mess of using a frying pan? So I quickly asked to review the Deep Fryer with Warming Tray.
This was a great choice.  There's the easy to read LED dashboard for one.  It's simple to operate with a select button to set the temperature or time.  By hitting the plus/minus buttons you can raise or lower the temperature or time.  Last but not least is your power button.  Above the LED screen you find a temperature guide for all your basic fried foods.
This is no little fry baby.  I was able to fry a 1/2 a chicken in one shot.
One of the pains of trying to get dinner on the table is having everything warm at same time.  We all know that fried food just isn't the same when it's cold.  That's why this warming drawer has to be my favorite feature.  The warming tray even held 1/2-a-chicken.

When I tested the fryer out I wanted to see how the warming drawer would work out.  So once the chicken was fried, into the warming drawer it went, while I moved on to frying the squash and mushrooms.  Let me tell you having that tray made all the difference.  Everything was warm and delicious.  I was a happy homemaker.  Neil may have been even happier than me.
The heating element kept the oil at the precise temperature for what I was frying.

Look at how beautiful my veggies turned out!
I don't think my fried chicken has ever come out so crisp and good.  The basket made it so easy and there were no blackened spots from laying against the bottom of the frying pan.  I hated the mess of frying so much before that I gave it up.  When we wanted chicken, we'd go out.  Now, with my new deep fryer, we're back in the fried chicken business again! We'll be having it once a week now.
The features, like the splatter protection lid with a window for viewing and grease filter, the adjustable temperature, digital display, and cool touch handle make this an all around great kitchen appliance.  The removable parts make it a dream to clean and a bit of a life saver.  I can now keep my Southern badge of Deep Frying.  Plus the stainless steel housing is not only easy to clean, it keeps the counter attractive.

I bet you'd like to win one.  Well, keep reading - we're getting to that.

First I want to tell you about a few of BrylaneHome's other items, like the Betty Multi Piece Comforter Set - Sale From: $24.00 - $109.99.  This is the same bedding set Julie reviewed. You really should go checkout her review.  Julies a great seamstress.  I mean really good!  Which means she can attest to the quality of an item like this.  When I buy a fabric item, I want to know about more than just it's beauty.  I want to know about the quality, how it's made, does it have good stitching. Is the size generous?  Read Julie's review and let her answer these questions for you.  You'll be able to gain extra entries in the giveaway by visiting Julie's blog Mamawj's Moment Away.
Take a look at this beautiful bath collection.  Click over to The Sequins Bath Collection and see a close up.  The sequin circles are so pretty.  Love it!  The tans and blues have that wonderful beach look and the shiny sequins remind me of seashells.  I don't need a shower curtain and I'm wanting this one.  Maybe I'll have to get the towel and accessory set instead.  Priced great from $9 - $34.
I already have a Laundry 3-Bin Sorter similar to this, but this one looks sturdier and the bags are better tailored than mine, plus I like the color.  If you don't have one of these, seriously get one!!  It will make your laundry work so much easier.  As soon as Neil and I get undressed we toss our clothes into the appropriate bin.  That means no sorting laundry on wash day for me.  Yippeeee!!
BrylaneHome even has beautiful accent furniture like this Naples Hall Tree.  This is a great way to store all those shoes and coats to keep things neat by the front door and it's so pretty.
And why not check out their Holiday items while you're there. Finally an answer to my cord problems.  I've complained all season about all the extension cords from having wreaths in my EIGHT windows and TWO columns.  That's a lot of ugly cord mess.  Not a problem with BrylaneHome's Cordless Battery-Operated LED 30" Christmas Pine Wreath.
Originally $59.99 - Sale $24.99 / Save 58%
Oh' BrylaneHome, PLEASE make my wishes all come true and send me ten of these, so I can show them off and keep my sanity.
