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.
