Product Description

Product Description

The WARING DF200 Pro Deep Fryer cooks up to 3-3/4 pounds of food to crunchy, golden perfection. This gorgeous, brushed stainless steel fryer features a domed lid with condensation catcher, 1800-watt immersion style heating element with protector, heavy mesh basket for faster cooking, collapsible cool-touch handle, and a tilt-and-drain feature. Safety features include:

Amazon.com

With its gallon-size oil reservoir and a powerful 1800-watt immersion element, this deep-fryer cooks large quantities of food quickly and crisply without that greasy fried food feeling. Simply fill the tilt-out, heavy-duty mesh basket with food, lower into the hot oil, and monitor progress through the glass window. The domed lid ingeniously catches condensation and channels it away, keeping splattering to a minimum. Built-in safety features include a breakaway cord, automatic shutoff if the unit gets too hot, and indicator lights. Also, the unit will not operate unless all parts are securely interlocked. A timer can be set for up to thirty minutes. Made of high quality stainless steel, the body and lid, oil reservoir with pour spout and basket hook, and control panel should give years of service. The oil reservoir, basket, and lid are dishwasher safe. The fryer measures approximately 17 by 8-1/4 by 14-1/2 inches. Extreme caution should be taken when cooking with large quantities of hot oil. --Ann Bieri

5.0 out of 5 stars What a fryer! July 31, 2003
After months of begging, my wife finally gave in and gave the green light for a fryer purchase. I read reviews regarding various other fryers, checked technical specs, and finally decided on the Waring. Ironically, this is the only fryer which I could not find a review. So I'm rectifying that situation. The Waring uses the most wattage compared to any other fryers. This translates into less time waiting for the oil to achieve the desired temperature and a quiker recovery time. The design is functional as well as industrial. The elevated basket hanger allows placement of food into the basket and oil to drain prior to removing the food. With the window built into the lid the food can be monitored without removing the entire lid which helps keep heat in the fryer and grease off the walls. The break-away cord is genius. This feature houses a magnet in the appliance plug which holds it in place. If a slight amount of tension is placed on the cord it releases from the back of the fryer rather than pulling the entire unit, hot oil and all, off the counter...outstanding safety feature. The dials are easy to use, although the bell is a tad hard to hear when the timer is finished. The basket will hold enough food for our family of four. If more food is need the recovery time to reheat the oil to cooking temperture is minimal. The oil basin is stainless steel, easily removed and has a built in spout to facilitate emptying the oil. Cleaning the unit is simple. Remove the lid, then the heating element with controls, dump the oil, and wash the basket, oil basin in the sink. The heating element can be wiped down with a dish towel. Using the cooking guide included in the instructions results in crispy, fully cooked food with minimal grease. We were pleasantly suprised with not only the quality of the food but how often we use this fryer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Deep Fryer I've Ever Owned December 19, 2003
By CM
I've only had this a short time and only used it a few times, but here are my impressions thus far.
PROS:
Attractive, durable construction. Wire basket is excellent; handle folds inside basket for compast storage inside the unit.
Lid is well thought-out, with silicone lined notches on the handle end so it fits snuggly and you don't have to lift it to raise or lower the basket.
Cleanup is fairly easy. Toss lid and basket in the dishwasher, drain the oil reservoir using the convenient corner pour spout (use a large funnel if straining, because one gallon gets heavy after awhile) and put the reservoir into the dishwasher. Everything except the heating element is immersible. I put the element on a plate to let it drain and then wipe it clean.
Oil heats up rapidly. The deep reservoir keeps splattering to a minimum. Food cooks fairly close to times indicated in recipes or on boxes, so I assume temperature is accurate. Fries came out crisp, mozarella sticks were done perfectly.
Number one advantage: because this has an immersible heating element (it's big, not like one you'd attach to an electric skillet), the oil temp below the element is cooler; thus all the burned bits fall down there, so you can cook batches of fries without getting floating debris stuck to them.
Maximum temperature is 375, but the manual says it has a safety feature whereby it automatically turns off if the oil exceeds 525. The safety features are great, like the short magnetically attached cord. It's secure enough so that it doesn't come loose when you move the unit but if someone were to pull the cord, it would break away from the unit.
The basket hanger inside the unit is handy for draining.
Lid seems to catch the condensation.
CONS:
My cons are pretty insignficant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! A great home fryer! April 16, 2004
Before purchasing this unit, I examined every other fryer marketed, in hand. Other companies offer quite similar units at first glance, but in the end, this one has no peer. While indeed one of the most costly, its combination of well-designed features is easily worth the additional 20-30 Dollars over competitive fryers.
It's very big and, at 1800 robust watts, is as powerful as most modern kitchens can accommodate... If your kitchen isn't wired with 20-amp grounded outlets within two feet of its resting place, you should consider a 1500-watt unit from another maker, as it may trip your breaker or work at less than peak performance. Better yet, have your kitchen wired accordingly.
It demands lots of space, but should fit on the average counter, though I'd recommend that it not be placed beneath cabinets, or within a foot from them, as they will indeed take a beating from vapor and grease. I placed it on a cookie sheet on top of my range, beneath the exhaust hood, but be sure you have no lit pilot lamps or burners, which would pose a serious fire hazard. Its well-designed magnetic breakaway safety cord will reach slightly more than 2 feet. An extension is NOT recommended, and any extension of less amperage capacity than a very short, 12-gauge cord would seriously deplete the wattage and cause a fire hazard, and overheat the appliance. Again, do it right and have a stout 20-amp receptacle within range.
The construction of the fryer is outstanding. The unit's mass and features evoked an involuntary guttural grunt from me when I looked at it in my kitchen for the first time, and my wife issued a concurring female grunt. Everything breaks down easily for cleaning in seconds. All parts except the heating module are dishwasher-safe.

The fryer works well, fries evenly and is a breeze to clean. The only problem I have with this appliance is the cord. The part that actually plugs into the unit. Read more
