  • Can the IS15 Steamer Module be used to deep fry food?
  • Use the IF15 Fryer Module to steam vegetables
  • Can a steamer be converted to a fryer?
  • Can a steamer be used to deep fry food?


It is not possible to use a Steamer Module to deep fry, or use a Fryer Module to steam.

  • The Steamer is specifically designed to use water, and the Fryer is specifically designed to use oil or lard.
  • Oil heats slower than water, and using the incorrect module can cause damage to the heating element.
  • The parts for the Steamer and Fryer are not interchangeable.
