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.
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).Read more ›
Long story short, I went for the 45470 from Amazon and it's turned out ideal. We have a pokey little kitchen and the 40cm x 17cm footprint doesn't take up too much room. The thermostat is accurate and the massive heating element gets things sizzling in minutes.
Oil is readily available in 3-litre bottles which (with the heater installed) fills it right to the line. We only use the fryer occasionally, so we filter the cooled oil after use and store it back in the original bottle in a cool place. The unit is sturdy and stable, and it dismantles into 3 parts so it's really easy to clean.
The only downsides relate not to the fryer itself, but to the very fact you're deep frying. I had to fit a powered extractor fan to get rid of the cooking aroma that will pervade the whole house if you don't vent it (but I was planning that job anyway).
Also, responsibly disposing of the exhausted oil might be an issue, unless you're lucky enough to have a reclamation centre nearby that will accept such small quantities.
Other than that, we're absolutely delighted with it.
