Product Description

Product Description

The De'Longhi F18316S Roto Fryer is an innovative take on the deep fat fryer, with a unique rotating basket that uses only half the oil required by traditional fryers and a unique, patented Easy Clean System, with a drain hose to remove oil.

The F18316S has a 1.2 kg food capacity and requires 1.2/1.4 Litres of oil (50% less than other fryers of a similar capacity). It has an adjustable thermostat ranging from 150 to 190 degrees Centigrade, a 99-minute timer with bell and a light to indicate the desired temperature has been reached.

The external control basket can be lowered and raised with the lid closed, while other safety features include a locking lid with a release button, a cool-touch body and non-slip feet.

The Roto Fryer has a viewing window to watch your food cooking and double filters for both odour and oil vapour. Cord storage helps to keep your workspace tidier and the lid is removable and dishwasher safe for easier cleaning.

    5.0 out of 5 stars De'Longhi F18316S 22 Mar 2010
    By S. Thomas #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
    I have been reticent about using a deep fat fryer since early childhood when my mum used to fry in an open saucepan. This is the first deep fat fryer I have ever used myself and was chosen for the features that make it sound less alarming than other models on the market; the most notable of which is the fact that the lid stays closed when food is placed into and removed from the oil.


    The bowl has a sloped interior, with minimum and maximum oil markings etched onto the sides, which make it easy to fill to the correct level. The food basket rotates once it has been lowered into the oil and the food moves into and out of the oil as it goes around. This design means that you do not use as much oil as other fryers and does not appear to be to the detriment of the food cooked.

    You can look at the food cooking through a viewing window, supposedly without opening the lid; in fact it is difficult to view items cooking because condensation immediately prevents a clear view once food enters the oil. It is possible to get a vague indication of whether things have started to brown, but the only real way to tell is to lift the lid, so the window is not as useful as it sounds.

    The basket sits above the oil and can thus be filled before the lid is closed and the fryer is switched on. A light indicates when the oil has reached the selected cooking temperature and food is then lowered into the oil without the lid needing to be opened - so no need to worry about splashing oil.

    Temperature selection is via a dial on the front. This feels rather flimsy to me but seems to do the job. There is an integral timer but I have chosen not to use this as it does not turn the fryer off.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A great Deep Fryer! 5 Jun 2009
    Verified Purchase
    Like the other reviewers I am very impressed with this product. It is certainly not the cheapest deep fryer but it IS extremely good! The easy clean is just that and the rotating metal basket means you need a lot less oil to fry in which means that it should start saving you money in the long run. I love the really effective filter built into the lid and now the kitchen no longer smells like a chip shop after frying, and just as importantly the cupboards/shelves/contents of the kitchen no longer get covered with a layer of grease which means cleaning is much much easier! I actually bought it to try and produce proper crispy sweet potato fries (like the ones they sell in American restaurants like O'Charley's) and while it's not quite like being back in Memphis, it is extremely close, giving much better results than trying to oven bake them!
    All in all a very good product highly recommended.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Best Fryer Yet 11 Dec 2008
    I bought this fryer after my old Tefal expired. I was initially attracted by the fact that it required less than 50% of the oil that the old one did. The additional design features, and in particular the easy clean concept, clinced it. Having now used it quite a few times I certainly do not regret the purchase.

    The rotating basket design certainly gives superior frying results producing really golden crispy chips even with the lid down. It very well, and cleverly, designed and seems robust with the exeption of the drain tube hatch which is very plasticy and feels quite fragile but no doubt will last with a bit of care. The Easy Clean System is superb and emptying it and cleaning the bowl after every use is no chore at all. The drainage system is also very good with the built in container holder, supplied container and filter which is so fine that it catches even the smallest particles.

    As far as looks are concerned to me it is rather glitzy but this is a matter of personal taste. The only other critism I have is that the supplied drain tube cleaning "brush" which is not a brush at all is virtually useless and I use a small bottle brush instead.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great product 21 April 2010
    We already owned a DeLonghi Rotofryer which we'd had for many years. It just needed updating.
    We are delighted with the new one - it fries our chips much quicker and to the deep brown colour that we favour. It is also very stylish and easy to clean.
    Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
    Just make sure you have a largish space in which to store it.
    And do buy the filters at the same time.

    5.0 out of 5 stars delonghi roto fryer 28 May 2009
    We have been disapointed with other deep fat fryers recently. but bought
    the delonghi roto fryer with some trepidation, but it has lived up to its
    reputation. We are particularly pleased with the emptying and storing features.

    Excellent product. Easy to use and clean. The rotating basket makes life so much easier and hassle free. I know its not the cheapest and near the top end of the deep-fat fryer market, but well worth the money.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Delonghi Roto fryer 4 Oct 2008
    By Andrea
    Verified Purchase
    Thought this was rather expensive for a fryer but was attracted by the promise of less fat required for use. I must say it has exceeded my expectations and cooks lovely chips! It also looks good enough to store on top of worksurface, unlike some of the genre. Definitely recommended.
