Dangerous metal edge cut my hand
on September 7, 2011
I really regret having to grade this fryer so low, because, overall, it works very well. Unfortunately, it has a dangerous design flaw. The frame, which holds the oil pan, etc. Is made of thin sheet steel. This steel is folded under at a right angle. Aside from corners where the feet of the fryer are located, the edge of the steel is completely exposed. This a really big deal since the sheet steel is so thin - I swear it is nearly as sharp as a kitchen knife.
Well, since you cook with oil in this appliance, you'll definitely be washing this exterior frame, most likely by hand. I did and guess what?I slashed two of my fingers fairly badly.
So, be warned. This product, if not handled very carefully, can be quite dangerous.
