Summary: Heater and temp sensor unit are well assembled with lots of clamps and such, and can be fun cleaning.
Pros: Works well, if not over loaded, and the owners manual warns of this. With two baskets you can fry chicken and French fries at the same time. Optional single basket can be purchased which will allow more of one item to be fried. All parts fit folded inside unit for storage. Magnetic power cord attachment a nice safety feature. Heater/control unit and pot can be removed for cleaning. Cooking pot holds over 1 gal oil when at full level.
Cons: Stainless base unit and enamelled cook pot have sharp edges...take care when cleaning.
Summary: When I saw this product, I thought it would be great and it is but I didn't realize how much cooking oil it took. I just wasn't thinking......But if you can get past that, then everything will be great. It certainly frys to a golden brown and you are able to fry more than usual. It's a little bulky and I can't find any space in my cabinets for it......
Summary: The large capacity is nice and the dual basket capability is even nicer. We have only fried chicken wings so far but it handled them well. We filled both baskets with wings and it cooked them with no problems. The oil temp did not drop too significantly and stayed hot enough throughout.<br /><br />The only con is not a product design flaw, just a warning not to overfill the baskets.
Pros: Dual baskets, Easy To Clean, Temperature Control
