Poor quality and not up to the job
I bought this fryer because it looked almost identical to the one it replaced. However, there were a few features this one did not have.
It had one less warning light to show power was on. The lid was so poor I think it would have broken very quickly.
The last one could be easily removed for cleaning. This one had very poor fiddly clips. The actual frying pan had a gap between it and the stainless steel outer casing, which would inevitably allow water and oil to get inside the electrics inside.
There was no clip which fastened the lid, whereas the old one had a small lever which fastened the lid securely.
The worst point was the temperature. It took ages to fry the chips which eventually came out soggy and not crisp. I have the equipment to measure the temperature of the oil.
On its first fry setting it was about 15 degrees lower than the setting showed. The highest setting was the same, and obviously this was the reason it was not up to the job.
All in all, poor quality and not up to the job, and I am still waiting for my refund!!!Read full review
