HELP! My friend stuck his hand in my deep fryer

. . .and he's downstairs with his hand stuck in my sink, (we filled our sink up with ice)?? the swelling has gone down

I've been Googling "deep fryer" and "burns" but not getting any good hits, does anyone have advice on what to do? Should we put butter on it? Does the emergency room help you if you were a dumbass?

Well, first at the ER they have an internal hearing to determine whether your injury was a result of accident or stupidity. That can take a while.

Laurel, Wednesday, 9 January 2008 19:40 (twelve years ago) link

before i give my advice tell me this: was the hand breaded prior to going in the fryer?

chicago kevin, Wednesday, 9 January 2008 19:41 (twelve years ago) link

ketchup ranch!

dan m, Wednesday, 9 January 2008 19:41 (twelve years ago) link

Of course they'll help you. Go, before the burns get even deeper.

StanM, Wednesday, 9 January 2008 19:42 (twelve years ago) link

did he dip it in a taste batter first?

carne asada, Wednesday, 9 January 2008 19:42 (twelve years ago) link

Was he holding a Mars bar?

StanM, Wednesday, 9 January 2008 19:42 (twelve years ago) link

you need infection protection

sexyDancer, Wednesday, 9 January 2008 19:43 (twelve years ago) link

no you guys, c'mon no Mars bar jokes, he seems to be in pain, we were making poppers and as a joke when we finished a batch he just stuck in there to see how hot it got.

Richard 3, Wednesday, 9 January 2008 19:43 (twelve years ago) link

. . .and his hand got jammed in the basket.

while he's waiting in the ER you should go get him some fries from the cafeteria

When I worked at the Taco Bell I would always get this hypnotic semi-compulsion to do this. Of course I never did, but boiling grease does strange things to a mind.

Abbott, Wednesday, 9 January 2008 19:49 (twelve years ago) link

I want that t-shirt, do I have to fry my hand to get one?

FYI: Don't put ice or ice water on a burn. Use cool water only.

I'm waiting for someone to post a link to that horrifying safety PSA about carrying boiling pots of water in the kitchen.

The smart thing to do would be to garnish with lemon and serve with cocktail sauce and tartar sauce.

I always thought this sounded like a really good idea because then your hand would be a yummy snack for whenever you needed it.

roxymuzak, Thursday, 10 January 2008 06:55 (twelve years ago) link

an ex girlfriend's mother did, in all seriousness, do this once.

she used to dip her hand in the (turned off) deep fat fryer and flick oil into a frying pan for the breakfast in the mornings. one day, someone turned it on first. not very nice.

Anti-Cop Ponceortium (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Wednesday, 9 September 2020 15:02 (two months ago) link

a co-worker at LJS accidentally dipped his whole arm in a deep fryer. he was so fucking tough about it, it was unbelievable. i was right next to him, making hushpuppies, and then i heard him make a sustained grunt, and then before i knew it the franchise owner was there, they're rushing to the hospital, they're cleaning out the fryer, etc. meanwhile, on the other three fryers we continued serving delicious breaded fish, chicken, and shrimp to whoever's willing to pay

this is a hell of a short story

"sustained grunt" is haunting

shout-out to his family (DJP), Wednesday, 9 September 2020 17:21 (two months ago) link

a sustained grunt would be what i'd imagine you'd muster if transfixed by a longbow

imago, Wednesday, 9 September 2020 17:26 (two months ago) link

that's pretty much what it was like. he was extremely tough - there were cashiers in the front, 10 feet away, who didn't even know what had happened until later. even me, right by him - i don't think i noticed until a few seconds into it. it was the splash of all the oil onto the floor and fryer area that i noticed first

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 9 September 2020 17:40 (two months ago) link

one of the big cliques in our school were the cowboys. he was older than me by about 5 years, but he was definitely a cowboy. as you'd expect, one big thing about them was toughness and not crying and just trying to be a badass. or not trying to be, i guess - they'd fucking burn their arms in a deep fryer and not even scream, that seems legit.

It's ok onimo, I know I will be compelled to watch lots of things I probably shouldn't due to morbid curiosity, that's the way of the internet. That's even worse than the Mungo Jerry anti-drink-driving ad they showed on tv in the 90s.

Anti-Cop Ponceortium (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Wednesday, 9 September 2020 22:37 (two months ago) link

Next time I have a dire medical emergency involving a deep-fried hand I am definitely going to Google "hand immersed in deep fryer" first, and when that doesn't give me much good advice I am going to log onto a message board (any old board will do in an emergency!) and post about it, in case anyone there has some words of wisdom to share. afaik, this is SOP for severe burns. thx, Richard 3 for showing me how its done by a pro!
