Fashionable Kid Girl Letter Print T Shirt Review
: I love this fryer. It does a great job on small quantities of food, which is perfect for me, because there are just two of us. I have an older model that I have had for about 8 years, and it is still going strong. I admit, I don't deep fry that much food, but I have been able to depend on it for years when I am craving a handful of onion rings or a few french fries. I have fried calamari, fish for tacos, mushrooms, and even cheese sticks in it to great results. The pic of the fries I posted above were just cooked last night.It is extremely easy to clean, uses a fairly small amount of oil, and does a good job of filtering out that "deep frying" smell that can pervade the kitchen when you are frying. So, why 4 stars? Because it is pretty low capacity. Doing fries for a neighborhood party, I had to do many batches, and keep them warm in the oven. It was a bit of a pain, but I don't often have a reason to have a larger-capacity fryer.
: The fryer is well built with several improvements over the last DeLonghi that I owned. It has a built in timer and an easy drain spout. The temperature will heat to 370 degrees F which is about 20 degrees hotter than most deep fryers.
: This is not an appliance that I use all of the time so I appreciate the fact that it's lightweight and fairly short, making it easy to quickly stow away. I keep it in a cabinet underneath, but it's light enough it could go above as well.What's really nice, however, is that it's so easy to clean. I was surprised that almost ALL of the oil used drains out fairly readily, and then I can simply wipe the non-stick inside out with paper cloths.Finally, because of the way it works, slowly spinning the foods down into the oil and then out again you get crispy foods that aren't soaked with oil.
: I gave this unit three stars which probably isn't fair to the quality of the unit. It is relatively easy to use, and it does use less oil than others, and you can reuse (and save) the oil. The problem is the whole idea of frying anything in oil is unhealthy. It's a little less unhealthy using this unit. I had to change my diet (because of high chloresteral) and this unit hasn't been used since that day. Americans eat so much crap as it is that using something like this is simply not beneficial to our life style. (I know, if I think this way, why did I buy it in first place); I was a little less enlightened then, and reality is a bitch when it threatens your life. Anyway, if you want a good fryer, this one worked pretty well for me when I used it. It seemed like reasonably high quality and you got maximum use of your oil (it even has a filter after using the oil). The one caveat I had about it was it didn't heat the oil up high enough to do a good job on some products. My old unit heated the oil much higher which produced a better product (using Pillsbury bisquits to make donuts).
: We've used other kitchen items manufactured by DeLonghi in the past and were very well pleased. Sorry to say that was not our experience with this deep fryer.First of all, the capacity is small so for a group of four, french fries, for instance, we had to repeat several times to get adequate servings. The meatier pieces of chicken were not done, and the oil appeared even cloudier after use than it did with our old deep fryer.We're in the dumps with this DeLonghi!
