Thanks folks. That's where I'm leaning, but I'll clarify..... I do 3 litre partial boils with about a cup of extract (by my math that gives me 1.040) to get some bitterness and flavour from added hops. Should I put off either until I can do both at once? Or make my chiler and save again for the fryer set up?

I live in Canada, beer, brew gear and shipping all cost a fortune, so I got into this to save a few dollars. Now I can see an avenue to take it farther.

I would still get the chiller first.
With your small boil volume the stovetop should be working fine for now.
Probably before I got the fryer I would look at finding a nice brew pot so that I could do a big enough batch to justify all the time.
