5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST deep fryer I've ever owned!, December 7, 2014
This review is from: T-fal FR8000 Oil Filtration Ultimate EZ Clean Easy to clean 3.5-Liter Fry Basket Stainless Steel Immersion Deep Fryer, 2.6-Pound, Silver (Kitchen)
I've had several deep fryers through the years and this is the best one ever! The immersion type heating element heats the oil fast and keeps it up to cooking temperature even with frozen foods. I used pure peanut oil for my first test frying with this fryer as I've have such good results using that oil in the past. It costs a lot more but is well worth it. My wife commented that the foods I cooked tastes as good as some better restaurants we go to.

After the oil cooled, I just flipped the lever on the front and the oil was strained through the fine mesh stainless steel screen in the bottom of the stainless steel tank and into the plastic storage tank underneath.. There is a pour spout in one back corner of the plastic tank that makes it easy to pour the oil back into the jug it came in for storage. The plastic tank has a removable lid much like a Tupperware container making it easy to clean.

Everything but the power cord and the heating element/control unit can go into the dishwasher! That right there is one of the best features ever. So, there isn't really much of a mess at all.

The power cord is held on to the control unit with a magnet. I'm thinking it's probably a safety feature so if someone snags or pulls on the cord, it will just come off instead of dragging down the whole deep fryer.

I think it's the one to own! Get yourself one!

How many chicken breasts can this hold?

I haven't done chicken breast yet but it looks like it will easily do four and you probably could get six in there with no problem. It would depend on how big they are.

Outside of the name, I think they are pretty much identical. I first bought the Emeril one on Woot! and then bought this one (same thing) for my son.

The manual I have says never to leave the lid on while cooking. But also says watch the cooking for one minute before putting the lid on?
Also, is peanut oil OK? The manual says not to use ground nut oil
Thanks

I've been using peanut oil and love it. I also cook with the lid on. It has a built in vent and it keeps the cooking fumes and spattering under control.

Peanuts are legumes, like soybeans, not nuts.
