VERY Disappointing - not fit for purpose.
17 August 2018
I am deeply disappointed with this fryer. I bought it because it had all the features I wanted BUT it has two major flaws that make it not fit for purpose.
First it claims to cook 1Kg of food. I only cook 600 grams of chips, only 60% of capacity but the basket is so small that even this overfills it and chips all stick together as there is not enough room to shake them.
Second, a major feature for me is the capacity to raise the basket out of the fat without opening the lid - needed for two stage cooking at 170 degrees then 190. The first time it worked! The second time it worked empty but the weight of the chips pulled the flimsy basket partially into the fat. After six uses - and about to throw it out - the basket has distorted so far that the bottom of it is always in the fat. The locking mechanism on the handle is also failing. VERY poor quality.
