Cleaning is a breeze. I wash by hand so I can't offer you a dishwasher safety experience, but it's easy to clean with soap and water. I recommend that you don't air dry it for too long. If you've been using it to fry, I would dry it off with a paper towel after no more than five minutes dripping to dry. Then with a dish towel. Because of its non-stick feature I don't use any abrasive scrubbers or metal tools other than the basket it comes with. The non-stick actually turns out to be a good thing because once I accidentally over cooked the rice. (Hey, it's a no attention required procedure for this thing.) The rice didn't burn and stick to anything, it just happened to be in an additional 20 minutes longer. :) Where the hook to the basket hangs on the cooker you can see the non-stick coating come off. It's just the line where the metal touches it. No big deal. Like I said, I don't use metal otherwise, so the rest of the kettle should last some time.
Overall, I have to ask why I didn't buy this sooner. It's solid and sturdy (the manual recommends you check the tightness of the screws regularly, but that only makes sense). All those years I tried to fry everything in skillets on the stove where more dangerous than it was worth. Now I have quick, safe, deliciously fried food (oh, and did you know that with a strainer and air tight storage, you can save your used oil and keep using it?).
Well - this little sweetheart does it all .. Fries, steams, simmers ....
We make sugar water for hummingbirds and our honey-bees. Neither nectar should come to a boil - We just add water, sugar, stir and set the Kettle on 200 & no more watching the pot ...
We also raise chickens for their delicious eggs. But as most of you know, peeling a farm-fresh egg is nearly impossible if boiled, but steam them? And the shell falls off easily ... I can make egg salad, potato salad, deviled eggs now .. with no hassle at all ...
Seriously folks .. this little gem is a great tool in your cooking arsenal ...
It may be small .. but it's dynamite !
1. Read and follow the directions, they are always important regardless of the appliance.
2 Don't overcrowd the food. It needs space to cook properly. For example: I deep fried 6 shrimp at a time and about 2 average servings each of okra and fries (average meaning something like you would get at a fast food restaurant). I would guess that the fryer would hold about 3 average sized peices of chicken, fish, etc. Use your jugement as long as the food is not crowded.
3. The fill line is a ridge inside the pot and takes about 1 1/2 quarts of oil. The directions for deep frying say to heat the oil about 20 minutes, but I could not find how to tell when the oil is heated to the temp of 400 degrees. So I watched it and it actually heated up in about 15 minutes and the red pilot light will go off when it is heated. Your pot may vary. Just watch the pilot light.
4. After the cooking process is done, set the basket on the side of the pot with the lip provided for a few seconds until no more oil is dripping and place the food on paper towels.
It was a very good meal and we were both very pleased with the results. I am anxious to try other cooking methods according to the directions. This is a perfect sized cooker for 2 to 3 people. It surely will accomodate more, it will just take a little longer. The only critical thing for me is not having a removable container to store the oil in my refrigerator, but I cannot complain for the price and will just have to put it in another storage container. I recommend this to anyone wanting to spend little money for a quality product.
