Fryer Fail
This fryer worked great...until it didn't. It simply wouldn't power up after only 10 cooks. Not recommended.

Perfect For Our Needs
We don't eat fried food every week, but we occasionally enjoy a special meal of fried fish, fried oysters, fried shrimp, or fried ravioli and this fryer is perfect for our needs. The fryer does a great job maintaining the temperature while cooking resulting in excellent fried food. Four quarts of oil is just the right size for us, usually allowing us to cook a meal in one frying, and it's easy to store that amount oil in a container in the refrigerator between uses. Cleaning the fryer is a snap. We are extremely satisfied.

The Best Deep Fryer
I have used it once since I got it only a week ago, and I have to say the best French Fries I have made. Beats all the other Deep Frylers I have wasted money on over the years!

Small fryer, great for two people
This was my first deep fryer. I've made French fries, fried mushrooms, Calamari, vegetable tempura, a MonteCristo sandwich, even a fried Cornish Game hen in it. All were successful.
Very easy to use. I like that the entire unit goes in the dishwasher except the electronics and heater. It disassembles easily and puts back together easily. You need a good wide funnel to pour the used oil through to save it. I use a very fine mesh strainer which fits in the funnel. I use the oil 4-5 times, and keep seafood separate from other. I use for special meals, not weekly. Really enjoy it

I have several Breville products (Smart Oven & Risotto maker), which are great, easy to use appliances. I wanted (rather than needed) a deep fryer. Frankly, this one went on sale, which nudged my purchase. Just call it a a 'gift' to myself.

How do you drain the oil from this fryer?
A shopper on Jan 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can remove the inner frying bowl by grasping the rim and lifting upwards.
Please describe how to remove oil from the appliance. The previous question was not adequately responded to.

Is there a drain enabling oil to be removed from the appliance? Another reviewer asked how to drain the oil from the basket and the response talked about lifting the inner basket. That does not answer the question at hand. How is oil removed/drained from the appliance after use? A specific answer is requested.
A shopper on Feb 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can remove the inner frying bowl by grasping the rim and lifting upwards. This enables you to dump the oil from the frying bowl. There is no drain, and the previous answer refers to the bowl that contains the oil, not the basket. It has to be removed and dumped
Oil temperature

What is the max oil temp and how long does it take the unit to heat the oil? Thanks.
Terps on May 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: •Variable Temp Control ranges from 250° to 380° F
Do you need to add a gallon of oil to use fryer?
Jade L on Dec 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can use less than a gallon, but no more than a gallon.
What are the additional details on this fryer?

What is the size of the basket-height, width and depth?How much oil does it take?Is there a basket press available to keep donuts or pastries under oil?Thank
A shopper on Nov 12, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The basket is 8 1/4""L x 6""W x 4 1/4""H. It holds approximately 4 quarts or 2.5lbs of food. It requires 4 quarts of oil. This fryer does not come with a basket press
How does the cool zone work? Does it act as a filter?
Cheryl P on Dec 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Debris falls into cooler oil, preventing excess burning and extending oil life.
how much oil does it use?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I put in almost 2 quarts of cooking oil.
Bettyann W on Jul 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can fry smaller portions as well as larger ones.
The max temp was not answered adequately as I believe the asker wanted to know what the min/max temp this appliance allows for. If you compare this to the WS Breville fryer they have on their site, it states: Easy-to-use control dial adjusts cooking temperatures from 320° to 375°F. With that said, what are the min/max temps and how long does it take to heat it up to the highest temp?
Ida E on Dec 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The information provided in my previous answer is directly from the manual, as stated. There isn't one simple answer to either of those questions, as many different oils are suitable for use, thus leaving the answer variable. Suitable oils have a max temp range of 375° to 445°. Minimum & max times to heat the oil are not provided, as that will depend largely on the type of oil & it's temperature prior to heating.
How about coconut oil? I recently purchased some -organic variety- and know it is a 'healthy' oil which has many uses.
Camille D. K on Jan 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have a jar of organic cold pressed coconut oil at home & it specifies that it's not intended for use in deep frying. You might want to check your jar.
Can this fryer be used without the basket, as in frying freshly battered fish since the batter will stick to the wire mesh?
A shopper on Nov 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can fry battered fish without the basket! We do it all the time. Just use a large "spider" type spatula to get the fish out of the oil. Works out great every time!
How much food can one cook it it?
A shopper on Jan 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: All depends on the type of food you are cooking. So far, I have used it mostly for desserts. When I am making zeppoles, I can drop about 10-12 small scoops of dough in there. I know they will enlarge while cooking and need room to turn. When making an Italian dessert similar in structure to an empanada, I can usually fit about 6-8. I happen to enjoy using this product. The presets are great, although I have customized the temperature and time to fit my needs; this is a handy feature. I have found it easy to use and clean up. Keep in mind you are working with hot oil, so you should not overfill the basket. If you have deep fried before, you will know that some foods will make the hot oil foam or boil up. Hope this review was helpful.
Why is the the highest temperature?
A shopper on Apr 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Recipe book shows 375, some oils will smoke at 400.
