How do I clean my fryer? Its caked up with old grease.

Make sure it is dry, then spray it with Engine Shampoo or Engine Degreaser, let it stand for an hour, and wash it with hot, soapy water and a stiff brush. In extreme cases, you may have to repeat the procedure, but usually once is enough. It does not hurt aluminum or stainless steel. Have Fun!
Oven cleaner (even off brands) will work and will not hurt the finish. Just make sure that you are outside when you do it because the fumes are heavy!

I have been given an old, but reliable deep fryer that has years of baked on grease all over the pan. Can anyone tell me how to remove the grease and clean it up?
