A Better Frying Experience
|The D895UX features a patented rotating basket. This titled rotating basket revolves the food through the oil provides. The end result if that it allows you to use half the amount of oil normally required--without sacrificing anything in taste. The whole process makes surprisingly nongreasy food because the oil is heated evenly to the correct temperature. You end up with healthier, but still scrumptious, fried foods. And, the windowed lid allows you to monitor the cooking process safely.|
A Host of Great Features
|The fryer has a non-stick interior that is easy-to-clean, while the adjustable thermostat with indicator light allows you to set frying temperature from 300 to 370 degrees, giving you the flexibility to fry foods jus the way you like them. A built-in digital timer with bell can be pre-set; a viewing window lets you check on the food while it's cooking. Safety is built in--the sides of the fryer remain cool, and the hot oil stays inside, and non-slip feet keep fryer in place. When the food is done, theres an exterior lift handle that makes it easy to raise or lower the basket with the fryer lid closed to prevent splattering. The 1.5-pound capacity accommodates ample French fries, calamari, or tempura for four.|
|DeLonghi gives careful attention to cleanup. Forget dealing with messy, hot oil. The ingenious easy clean oil drain system makes draining and recycling cooking oil safe and easy. Simple open the door on the front of the unit and drain. A tube unfolds from a hidden compartment and efficiently drains the oil so that it can be used again--a system that's both easy and clean. The lid and frying basket are dishwasher-safe. There are two replaceable filters--dual filtration prevents the release of oil vapors and odors in the kitchenand a detachable cord with patented condensation shield. For safer operation, the magnetic cord easily detaches from the fryer if accidentally pulled. This unique safety feature is designed with a patented condensation shield to prevent dripping onto the cord connection. The fryer measures 14-3/4 by 12 by 9-1/2 inches and weighs 10.8 pounds. --Sherry Smith|

This is in regards to the reviewer who said the fryer has poor performace with battered foods. If you put your battered items in the basket and then drop it in the oil and don't stir it, then yes, you will have a mess as he says... However, this is easily worked around with one of two methods...
1. In order to cook battered foods successfully, you need to drop the basket in the oil first, and then place/wade your battered foods in the oil. This may sound a little dangerous, but if you're gentle, it's no problem at all. Emeril uses this method all the time on his show when he is frying a battered item. I've done it many, many times and have never had a problem, and I batter A LOT of foods. Now, with this process they will still stick to the wire basket as he mentions, but it is MUCH less. Once the item is in the oil you can use steel tongs to move it a bit to keep it from sticking.Read more ›
Pros: Cool touch sides. Digital timer. Rotating fry basket. Uses about ½ of the oil of other deep fryers with same results, giving it considerable advantage: save money on oil. Quiet operation. Easy cleanup: simply slide out the oil container tray, slip in the container with filter and drain the oil from the drain spout. Inside the fry basin is Teflon so it simply wipes clean. Window on the top lid allows you to see your food as it cooks. Odor filter in the lid reduces cooking odors.
Cons: Fry basket did not engage the fryer and would not rotate. However this was simple to fix, just bend the bottom of the basket slightly and the problem is fixed.
To summarize, I have done a lot of research on deep fryers on the market and I found that this fryer was the best pick. The instructions that come with the unit are easy to read and understand, they explain the operation of the unit thoroughly. There is also a temperature and cooking time chart that is helpful. I found that the food cooked a bit faster than the chart stated. If you are looking to buy a new fryer, I would recommend this fryer!
