I guess the main thing I learned so far is frying is not as simple as some other modes of cooking - you're going to be using nearly a gallon of oil that has to heat before and cool after. Like another review pointed out, when the oil is at cooking temperature, it puts out a lot of oil vapor and odor in the air, so unless you use it in a very well ventilated area, your kitchen and house will reek. Bottom line: deep frying takes a bit of commitment.
So what about the fryer? Most of the reviews I read about this seemed to be pretty much on the mark. Here's my primary thoughts:
- The unit has a decent sized capacity.
- Most all if it can go in the dishwasher, but will take up half or more of the dishwasher space - this thing is not tiny.
- The heating element thermostat is a dial with numbers marked on it - in other words, it is not digital, so I feel I should get a thermometer to confirm the oil temperature.
- A selling point on this rig, at least for me, is the automatic filtering of the oil. (This amounts to a drain in the bottom of the fry chamber with a metal screen). I moved the fryer out to my garage after it had cooled for a couple hours, hoping reduce the smell of oil in my kitchen, in the morning I found it in a small pool of oil - several ounces of oil either did not make it to the storage container. Either it leaked out of the top of the oil reservoir because its top didn't seal or it leaked as it was filtering from the fry chamber.Read more ›
I've had this fryer for a few weeks, used it six times, and I love it. The temperature gage is accurate enough, the drain/drawer thing is completely awesome and it seems to be solid in construction.
Addressing some things others have mildly complained about:
1. Oil drainage. I went for broke and just put this thing on the counter and let it drain. It hasn't spilled a drop. If you have drainage problems it's likely you're filled over the fill line, or (egads) you re-filled the fryer while the drawer was full. Or perhaps the valve is defective. The lever for drainage locks and should be foolproof. :)
2. Heating indicator light. I'm 6'2" and I can see the thing fine. :) If I were any shorter, though, yeah, bad positioning since to see it you'd have to lean over a hot device, or look at it from the side.
3. The fact that the light turns OFF when heating is complete. This is standard operating procedure for any device that heats up. The reason things work like this is so you know they are working. If it was the opposite way and, say, you forgot to plug the device in you might be sitting there forever waiting for it to heat up and thinking it's broken. The light coming on immediately when flipping the switch on indicates 'all systems go'. Plus, the amount of time to preheat vs the amount of time you will likely be cooking is a lot less. This will help the little bulb last longer as it will not be in use as often.
Anyway, big thumbs up for this device.Read more ›
Downside: the odor filter really doesn't filter that much, or that well. You still get huge plumes of vaporous oil rising up, and unless you use it under a hood your house will be a greasy mess. Luckily the design comes with two plastic side handles so you can easily move it on and off of the stove top where it can billow into your vent hood.

I bought this fryer back in July 2014. We loved it initially. Fast forward to January 2016...now it randomly empties the oil from the fryer itself. Read morePublished 5 months ago by S Bradley
Love the fact that it strains the oil so it is not wasted every time you want to fry something.Published 5 months ago by D. Geselman
Stopped working shortly after warranty ran out - my previous fryer lasted years! I bought this one because of the oil strainer which I did like - if only it held up better.Published 6 months ago by Elizabeth
