Neat little fryer
on 6 June 2015
This neat little unit is ideal for making up some small portions of deep fried food for 1 or 2 people (depending on what you are cooking of course). It comes with the usual wire basket and a detachable handle. It looks very stylish and takes up very little room on a work surface. The rotating temperature dial moves freely, but not so loose that you could accidentally knock it onto a different setting without realising.
It is pretty simple to use and does what it is designed to do. The only real negative point to this is the handle and lid set up. You have to squeeze the handle and feed it into the loops in the wire basket. Easy to do when the basket is cold and out of the oil, but a bit awkward when in the boiling oil. You have to release it from the lower loop for it to drop down completely into the oil and it can move around or catch. The lid will allow for the handle to stay attached, but you have to unclip it completely if you want to hook the basket on the lip of the fryer for draining. I would recommend a few practise runs on a cold fryer before trying it for real. The lid has a small lip on it for lifting up, but I would advise wearing an oven mitt when doing it to avoid the potential blast of heat burning you.
As a fryer it does a great job of cooking food and does a fantastic job on my favourite onion rings! This will be great for a single, couple or small household and ideal for a static caravan.
