Who Says Frying Can't Be Fun?

from NC on 01/27/2015 – Verified Buyer

I've had a couple of deep fryers in my time. One died on me after about 5 uses. Another big brand name would never get to the correct temperature. So, when I saw this one with the Cuisinart name, I knew I was making the correct purchase. And I did!! I've made doughnuts, French fries, fried veggies..... you name it, I've fried it! Straight out of the box, it's ready to go. There's a line to show you where to pour the oil up to, so it's a no-brainer. Anyone can figure it out without even reading the instructions. So, it's perfect for guys! The basket is sturdy, every part of this fryer is awesome. It's small, compact, doesn't take up much space on the counter if you want to leave it out. And who wouldn't want to leave it out? It's beautiful! Sleek and sexy, your other appliances will be dying with envy. I'd highly recommend this fryer to anyone who is thinking of taking the plunge and buying one for the first time....or if you've been disappointed by other fryers that left you high and dry... this is the ONE!

Very Compact Fryer

from Columbus, GA on 10/15/2014 – Verified Buyer

Slightly...disappointed....a little small for my family of five. Would probably work better for families of three or smaller (i.e. young couple, single or empty nester) . Looks beautiful though not bulky very sleek looking so compliments stainless steel well...

Great deep fryer

from PA on 12/19/2015 – Verified Buyer

Use this a few times a year. Cooks well in small batches for a smaller family. Can cook a variety of foods and has variable temperature settings. Well made .Store easily within itself.

Pros: Uses less oil than larger sized fryers, parts are dishwasher safe, easy cleanup; lid and filter prevent oil splatter and odorsr
Cons: none
5.0 stars

Love it!

from Pelham, NH on 01/02/2016 – Verified Buyer

I have several larger deep fryers, but, as I now live alone, this one is perfect. It cooks great, and cleanup is quick and easy.

Pros: easy cleanup; great fryer
Cons: I would have loved this in red, but it is what it is.

cute little fryer

from San Jose, CA on 09/21/2014 – Verified Buyer

This cute little fryer is great, but I'm only giving it 4 stars because it just isn't big enough. It does fit nicely in my kitchen drawer however. It can fry only a little at a time, so don't dump a whole bag of tater tots in it! It can fry may be a quarter of a bag at a time, but it fries well. I would recommend this little fryer to a small family. I wish it was bigger.

BEST Deep fryer ever

from MILLERTON, NY on 01/07/2016 – Verified Buyer

My husband and I rarely eat deep fried foods, but there is the occasional recipe that makes deep frying necessary. This is the perfect deep fryer for us'
4.0 stars

from DEL MAR, CA on 01/26/2016 – Verified Buyer

Good look, design and easy to use. Con. Way to small for a family of 4. Unless you like cooking all night long and eating one at a time.
