DO NOT BUY THIS FRYER. I bought this for 'easy cleaning' and a higher capacity basket. The first time I used it we filled it with 3ltrs oil and did not exceed the 1.2kg capacity. The chips were slightly damp and the oil overflowed all over the place, making a terrible mess. The next time I used it, I made sure the chips were as dry as humanly possible. The oil overflowed again. I hadnt realised there was so much oil still inside the workings of the fryer and it burnt onto the heating element. This made a terrible burning smell thoughout the house even though we had used our extractor at full power.
It took many, many hours of painstaking hard labour to clean the burnt on oil from the tank and every other part of the fryer.
My third attempt was with a completely clean fryer. The chips were dry and by now the oil was low. IT OVERFLOWED AGAIN. Cleaning it this time did not take so long but it seems I have to accept that every time I use it, it will overflow all over my worktop and that I will have to thoroughly clean it, without exception. I WISH I HAD NEVER BOUGHT THIS PRODUCT. ... For the hard work involved this is a very poor value product.
