For those that fry either with pan fry OR deep fry, is it less greasy one way or the other? I know several of you don't fry at all or use the oven to fry etc. I am specifically asking those that do pan fry or deep fry.

For me. when I do fry, I prefer deep fry and use a baby deep fryer. It tastes less greasy to me than pan frying.

Whenever we fat-fry foods, we pan-fry them. I love the crust on chicken that is pan-fried, and when we have schnitzel I think the crust is much better when pan-fried.

All that matters is the temperature of the oil, as long as it's hot enough neither way should be greasy.

^ Yes the temperature is what makes food greasy or not when frying or deep frying.

^ Exactly! We rarely fry anything, preferring to grill most of our meats and vegetables which we do year-round, even in this land of four seasons, including some real winters.

This^^^

If oil temp isn't hot enough that's when the food becomes soggy and greasy.
