5.0 out of 5 stars BEST FRYER YET 13 Mar 2007
I bought this fryer about 2 months ago, was a little surprised to find it did not have a filter system in the lid like all the rest I have tried. No need to worry, just fry with the lid off and it doesn't seem to produce much steam. The main feature I like about this fryer is it can be totally cleaned . All you do is remove the element and the whole of the fryer can be washed in the sink (GREAT). Can highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good product 6 Jan 2007
Overall a good product that produced excellent results in a short time.

I would not hesitate to recomend this but I would point out two things.

1. The Basket has a Bracket that doubles as the Max food level for holding the food above the oil for draining excess oil and loading. This works fine. However there is no bracket for holding the basket in the cooking position. The Basket sits on the heating element. If Morphy Richards had just put a small gap between the top ring of the basket and the mesh just between the handle then the basket would sit on the same holder as previously mentioned and hold basket and food just a little above the element which would minimise wear and tear.

2. The unit has two small capiliary wires that run parallel to the heating elements conecting to the thermal cut out sensors that are attached to the heating element under the cooking basket. These would seems best out of the way behind the heating element so as not to come in contact with the basket and become subject to wear and tear. In the product we recived they were taught with one coming out over the heating element. This was resoved by slightly pushing the unit that holds the thermal sensors back along the heating element by 1/2 CM towards the control unit and then moving the capiliary wires. This should not have been required in a new unit.

Now for the Positve things.

The unit heats up really quickly and the quality of the food that comes out is really good. Best chips I have had in a long time came out really well. Nice and crispy with a puffy centre. also did roast potatos really well.

The unit is easy to dismantle and clean.

The temperature dial is very easy to use. temperature settings labels are behind a small window so will not rub off.

Overall I thing for the price the unit was good purchase and I would recomend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bubble bubble boil and no trouble ! 18 Oct 2008
Verified Purchase
Love it !
Tired of dried up oven chips in my fan oven, not as though they are cheap either, always take up valuable space up in the freezer. I bought this purely for the chip factor. Totally aware that deep frying food is not particularly a healthy option these days though.

This all slots together and comes apart very easily, but securely enough to keep everything safe. Controls are simple, on off switch and temperature dial and light. No strange little symbols looking like cartoon chickens or the like. The cord tucks away in the back so it's easy to store.

Armed with a bag of desiree, 4L of sunflower oil and my potato peeler I set to work. Soaked my perfectly formed thick cut batons in water, poured 3.5L of oil into the tank, which settled the level just above minimum, and switched it on, turning the temp dial to 160 deg.

Drained and dried my raw chips, in a thick tea towel and patted dry with kitchen towel. The more surface moisture you rid the better - and safer - your deep frying experience will be. Temp light off, chips in basket and away we go. Oil bubbled up nicely - no where near the top of the tank but enough to cover the contents of the basket. There was a little steam,and not being of brand new kitchen status I don't have the luxury of an extractor - but I do have a thing called a window, which sufficed to loose any wafting smells.

Anyway 3 minutes later lift basket up allow the chips to cool and drain (in basket or on kitchen paper - I think Gary Rhodes actually puts them in the fridge for 30 minutes) for around 20 minutes (switched fryer off).

5.0 out of 5 stars Easiest to clean 20 Jan 2010
Possibly my most hated household chore has got to be cleaning out the deep fat fryer. If this is the case with you & you have a dishwasher or access to one this is the fryer for you. The whole thing comes apart and can be put through the dishwasher - apart from the electrical element of course - and it comes out sparkling. No more scrubbing & no more dingy plastic fryer on the worktop hurrah!

The temperature control makes for perfect frying, especially those triple fried homecut chips. However You need to keep the food moving at regular intervals (as the basket rests on the heating element). There isn't a filter, so you need to get it under a cooker hood (place on a heat resistant glass surface saver on top of your unlit hob) but the chips are probably crisper as a result.

The only minor gripe I have is the plastic handle (which folds into the basket).
When you take the fryer out it drips a small amount of oil on whatever surface it is on.
When you are putting it away you have to wait 2 hours before you can put the handle back(otherwise it will melt spectacularly - as my mum found out to her cost ). But this I will forgive on account of the cleanability, performance & reliabilty.

Almost industry standard fryer. Big capacity (2.5 litres of oil) should keep the family well fed. Cleaning a bit difficult despite the unit being dismantled.
