Summary: Works OK, you just have to keep an eye on the plugs, which will eaily come out while cooking and if you don't make sure its secure-your food will just be sitting there in cold grease. But the fryer works well and I really like having two separate cooking bins. It allows you to fry 2 different items without mixing the grease.
Good product, but excellent service from Amazon.com!

Summary: The difference purchasing this from Amazon.com was huge. They completely supported the purchase. There was a problem with missing cord and lid and they sent another one immediately and assisted completely with the return of the unit with the missing parts. I know this is a review of Amazon.com, rather than a review of the Maxi-Matic EDF-4080 Elite Platinum, but I would not purchase such an item from any other source.
Summary: I was highly disappointed with the fact that the knob broke on the right side the very first time it was used. You couldn't ever tell if it was on/off or what temp it was at from that time forward. Loved the dual compartment baskets as you could cook 2 different things at one time without affecting the grease if you're cooking 2 different flavors or breadings.
Summary: i read the reviews before i bought this product, and knew the chances of it working properly, so far it works and hasn't messed up yet, but there are (2) big down sides to this product. (1) there are two plug ins on for each fryer and its magnetized and is a head ace to keep it connected properly so that it supplies power. (2) if running both fryers you cant use the same outlet because it draws to much voltage and will trip breaker.
