Hi Susie: Thanks for the question. We checked with Breville, and the deep fryer cannot use lard or other animal fats. According to the user manual, "solid oil products, such as butter,margarine or animal fats of any kind should not be used in the deep fryer as they may overheat and cause a fire hazard." I hope this helps.
