Product Description

Product Description

Deep fryers offer a number of tasty options for foodies. Use it to make traditional favourites like home-made chips with crispy fried fish or other such tasty treats as battered onion rings, chicken nuggets and croquettes. Indulge in some Asian cookery with tempura, golden pork balls and samosas or swap savoury for sweet with fruit fritters.

The Breville VDF059 Stainless Steel Deep Fryer has a stylish rectangular shape and metallic body like those in professional kitchens making it a smart addition to your home. It has an immersed heating element and with a generous capacity of 3 litres (l) of oil and 1 kilogram (kg) of food is great for all appetites. It has a variable temperature control allowing you to choose how crispy you like your food and power on and temperature indicators to help alert you to its status. The ready-to-cook indicator automatically switches off once the fryer has reached your chosen temperature. There's no fear of burning your hands with the cool-touch handles and the enamel bowl is removable to help with the post fry-up clean-up. The cord storage helps keep your kitchen worktop fuss-free and when ready to pack away, the fryer unit dissembles and the basket's handles fold for easy cleaning and storage. Once your meal has been served and enjoyed, your used oil doesn't have to be immediately discarded thanks to the fryer's innovative Cool Zone technology. This economical feature ensures that any stray pieces of food that have fallen out of the basket don't burn and contaminate the oil, helping it last longer and so require changing less often.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic chip and everything else fryer 17 May 2011
    This is a wonderful deep fryer. I have been using this device for about 3-4 months now.
    Have owned lot of those plastic bin shaped attempts in the past. None have lasted long - they are difficult to clean and they go yellow after extended use.
    This baby strips down to isolate the electrical components allowing the use of a dishwasher :)
    It fries quickly and serves the best grub I have ever sizzled.
    It stays clean much longer, saving on oil.
    I recommend this fantastic product

    Very impressed with this fryer. Once oil is hot you have tasty chips in 5 minutes, taste 10 times better than oven chips. Item was well packaged, delivered quickly and is excellent value. Go on, buy one...

    4.0 out of 5 stars Breville Fryer 17 Feb 2011
    I was looking for a fryer, to change the old frying pan..so after a few days of internet research, I opted for this fryer, based on the previous review and attracted by the price(nearly half price). It used to take me 25-30 min with the old fryer to have the chips done, with this one 10-15 min depend how you like the chips. What a difference, in speed and most important ,,,quality, excellent fryer. The only problem I have is the cover which is coming with the fryer is only a dust cover, so you can't use it while cooking to prevent oil spread.

    Breville VDF059 Stainless Steel Deep Fryer

    Hi everyone this is a great little fryer came on time no problems put in the oil and done some home made chips they were excellent, very easy to use and easy to clean.

    This product will do enough for about 2 people but it is quick so if you decide to do more if needed the stainless steel finish looks the business, I would recommend this product to anyone have it about 8 months now working perfectly.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Chip Chip Hooray! 12 Oct 2013
    Verified Purchase
    We can't be doing with oven chips in our house so a deep fat fryer is a must! I don't need nor want a massive all singing and dancing industrial fryer, it's just not necessary and after looking at quite a few, thought I'd give this a go.

    I noticed that there is not one mention of the dimensions of this thing in the product description so here they are -

    Height - 7.5 inches
    Width - 6.75 inches
    Length (with element unit on)- 15.5 inches

    This one is pretty basic and not complicated to use at all and being made from brushed stainless steel it looks quite professional in the kitchen.

    Out of the box you get -

    - The fryer body plus lid
    - A ceramic frying well/pan
    - Frying basket
    - The heating element/controller

    You will need to take all the packaging out and assemble the whole unit which isn't hard if I can do it! All's you need to do is. . .
    - place the ceramic frying well inside the stainless steel fryer body.
    - Slide the heating element onto the steel body onto it's bracket and the bare element 'does' go inside the frying well.
    - stick your basket in!

    There are non slip feet on the body. The element section makes a click as you slide it onto the body, you know it's set correctly then and it won't work unless this happens.

    You will need to put 2.5 - 3 litres of oil inside this to use it. There is a minimum and maximum mark inside the pan.

    The fryer has one simple temperature control dial that goes from 130 to 190 degrees C. There is a quick reference guide in the instruction booklet recommending at what temperatures to cook the most commonly fried food.

    I have had several deep fat fryers since experiencing an oil fire 20+ years ago. Most have been in the 50-80 price range and one was over 120! I even ventured to a hot-air, minimal oil fryer that cost 200. Some have been excellent buys, others total disasters for a variety of reasons. After my last 80 fryer failed, I decided to go for something towards the lower end for no reasons other than cost effectiveness and the expectation that it might last 2 or 3 years and only cost 10-15 p.a. maximum which was rather less than any other.

    OK - it is a basic, no frills model with a flimsy outer casing that needs the weight of the inner frying pan and its 2.2 litres of oil for its stability, but not everyone needs a fryer built like a tank and offering dozens of functions, LCD panels etc. It is of a size suitable for 2-4 people if frying chips but can be used for other things, too, including deep frying fish, mushrooms or fritters. With fresh oil and a cleaned bowl, it can be used for making doughnuts although it will not accept more than 2 or 3 at a time. There are MIN and MAX level markings one one side of the bowl but, depending on the room lighting, they can be difficult if not impossible to see. They are easily found by touch, which may be easier for some.

    If I have any criticism it is regarding the gross inaccuracy of its thermostat. As the first 2 or 3 batches were grossly overcooked after timings at settings that I had been used to using with prior fryers, I used a digital thermometer to check its temperatures - all were 40-50C higher than the markings would have me believe. That is rather excessive! I don't know whether this is typical for the model or the brand, but it should not be acceptable.
