Another disappointment is that there is no carbon filter fitted, the vent holes on the top of the unit are just that - holes in the top which do nothing to reduce odour, it would have been quite simple to have fitted a filter into the top.
One or two reviewers have commented upon the short cord. I measured it at 50cm which is quite short - not a problem for me but it does seem to be an inexplicable limitation.
Another comment some have made is that the bottom of the basket remains in the oil when it's taken out - I have found that the bottom of the basket is only just touching the surface of the oil even with the oil filled to the max line - I cannot say that I've found this to be a problem.
3.3 litres is a lot of oil. The basket is only 18cm x 15xcm and when empty the oil comes five cm above the bottom which means that only 40% of the oil is actually in the basket - this seems to be quite an inefficient use of space/oil.
The results of frying (and let's face it, this is the important aspect) are excellent however. The handling of the basket takes a little mastery but ultimately it works and fries food well enough. Even so I'm only going to give the Russel Hobbs 17942 three stars.Read more ›
Heats up quickly.
Easy to use.
Produces great results.
Easy to strip down and clean.
Not so Good
When you put oil in to the max point, the bottom of the basket sits in the oil so it will not drain so do not fill to the max, problem solved!
No temperature scale below 160 degrees, you need a thermometer to set it for lower temperatures.
The viewing window is a waste of time (as on all fryers) as it just steams up.
The timer needs a battery, Why? This is ridiculous.
Despite these niggles, this is an absolutely superb fryer, it looks great and the taste of the food produced is excellent and it is really quick, cooking lovely chips in only a few minutes. I would buy this again in a flash, thus it gets 5 stars and is highly reccomended.
1 month on and the timer has packed up. I will be returning this item and exchanging it for another of the same. I have since dropped the rating to 4 stars.
It has a few annoying points but generally its a good product and easy to clean. Would recommend.
The digital deep fryer is of excellent quality and clear instruction's.The fryer was ready
for use in quick time. Would recommend to future buyer's.
