Small but almost well designed.

G. Mitchell "webwitch", Amazon
15 April 2014
  • Summary: Yes, this item is small. I have only used it three times to sauté potatoes, and it performed quite well. Of course, the temperature drops even when you put hot potatoes in but it recovers quite efficiently. The basket is robust, and the detachable handle makes it easy to store. Please do not store in the fryer when there is oil in it! I really like the safe electrical cord. Very smart.

Very nice small device for two people

Ted M. Johnson, Amazon
22 March 2014
  • Summary: It does just what they claim it will do. Fast heat-up. Fast recovery. It doesn't take up much room, or use a lot of oil. I've used it several times and will continue and the only thing I've found is that larger pieces of chicken must pretty much be fried separately. It's small, but that's the reason I purchased it, so no complaints.

Lid Vent Cover needs Revamping

Faye Kean "keans2000", Amazon
9 March 2014
  • Summary: the deep fryer is wonderful. The main reason I did not score it 5 stars is the Lid slips off the joint sometimes and the cover for the vent is hard to remove from the lid. I am always fearful of breaking the tab, which I did on one. I had to order a new lid. They were really good and replaced it for free. But I think they could have designed it a little better.

Great small sized fryer

Amazon Customer "bon vivant", Amazon
4 March 2014
  • Summary: Having used a small round Presto fryer, I realized the round shape for French fries was a poor usage of the space and a rectangular fryer would be better. So I ordered this one, and am very pleased. It does the job with a minimal amount of oil (1 liter). The temperature controls seems to be close to what they read - unlike the Presto I had before which was significantly off. Variable temperature is important when doing the two-step fry process best for French fries.

Cutest little Appliance on the block

Cowgirl, Amazon
4 March 2014
  • Summary: Butcher block counter top that is! This thing is a mini power house! I will update my review as I proceed to use it but I have already used it twice this week and I just received it. I made egg rolls...then again left over egg rolls. I purchased peanut oil to use with this deep fryer and I'm happy I did. I poured in one quart and turned it on. It heated up VERY quickly. I used the basket to fry one egg roll at a time.

Detachable Lid

Eric Roebuck, Amazon
17 February 2014
  • Summary: The lid is awkwardly attached to the machine, often comes loose and falls off when closing. This tends to be a huge problem when dropping new items into the oil, as it has a tenancy to spit. There are also too many plastic parts, even months after purchasing I can still smell warmed plastic every time I use the device.

Didn't last a month

AmyS "AmyS", Amazon
18 December 2013
  • Summary: There is a reason this item is cheaper than many others on the market. I purchased it on November 18th, and it was delivered shortly thereafter. Today is December 18th and it has simply stopped working. No power, nothing, and I've put it in outlets where other appliances work fine. I used it 6 times total, and was very pleased with the heat and performance -- but clearly the electronics are cheap and not built to last.
