Does anyone "deep fry" anymore?

I've never deep-fried anything in my life.  I never will.  Better I go to restaurant...maybe a tempura dish is best alternative for me.  I don't mind yam fries or a quality begneit (European like donut which is different).

I think it's because my mother stopped deep-frying any food in my early teens.  It was too planning for her, with 6 children running around.  She found it a hassle to kick all of us out of the kitchen.  It was both a safety issue and also health concerns by my parents. My father worked in a restaurant where he was a turned off by deep fried dishes.

If you deep fry only occasionally, the cost of the oil becomes a big deal.  Once in a great while I pan fry chicken pieces and I cram them together and only use a little less than 1/2" of oil so I don't use much of it.  But I mostly bake them and, if I batter them, I either spray a little oil on the batter before baking or coat them in crushed corn flakes that have some oil incorporated in the batter.
