Summary: Was concerned when reading the other reviews that I might have made a mistake in purchasing this item. Quite, the contrary, I couldn't be more pleased: Highlights: I fried 3 lb of chicken cutlets (about 1/3 - 1/2 inch thick) in 4 batches about 3 deep in the basket using 1.5 quarts of oil.
Summary: Love at first use. No splattering. No smells of oil in the house. Chicken pieces got done but stayed tender and juicy on the inside. Really easy to use. Easy to drain and clean out. Even the basket is easy to clean. Extra great for Chinese cooking with lots of quick frying. Perfect for my uses.
Summary: After using this as a friends house a few time, I decided I needed one of my own! I was sold on the fact that the house didn't smell of fried foods for the next few days, and you don't have to spend time cleaning up all the oil that spits out when frying via the stove-top.
Summary: I've owned two other DeLonghi Deep Fryers, both were the cool touch 2.2 pound models. I loved those very much until the days they died so the idea of using less oil to fry up food made by DeLonghi sounded great! We mostly fry up french fries, chicken, and beignets.
Excerpt: I love the calamari, chicken wings and fried potato made by this machine. Not much oil used and food doesn't look or taste greasy. I know, this is not the healthiest food on the planet, but some time we deserve a little treatment.
Pros: Delicious Results, Easy To Clean, No Mess, Temperature Control

Summary: box fryer came in appeared to have been opened and re-taped- fryer timer had a dead battery - inside back of the fryer where basket sits has a prominent scratch from the basket being lowered - so it appeared fryer had been used.
Summary: I really like this frier, this is my 3rd one, this model doesn't have an off switch like the previous model im assuming its safer to unplug it that way you are sure it is off..its much lighter than the other model i had, it doesn't come with the oil storage bin that also filtered the oil that other...
