Make your deep-fried dinners a little healthier with the Stainless Steel 5-liter Deep Fryer. This pro-grade countertop appliance is equipped with a 1700-watt heating element thats immersed in the oil, maintaining the ideal temperature for foods to get brown and crispy without absorbing excess fat. Spatters are prevented with the tight-fitting lid, which has a viewing window to monitor the food as it cooks. The dishwasher-safe stainless steel fryer basket and oil container make cleanup easy, and the washable filter eliminates the heavy grease odors that normally permeate the kitchen after frying. Also features dual thermostats and cord storage. Imported. 9Hx13Wx17L".
This deep fryer handles every food from french fries to doughnuts while eliminating the mess that comes with stovetop frying. Constructed of heavy-duty stainless steel, the fryer has an extra-large 5-liter capacity so it can handle family-sized portions of fried chicken or falafel. A power switch and a thermostat that goes up to 375 degrees F are the only controls on the unit, making it simple to master. The professional 1,700-watt stainless-steel heating element is immersed in the oil so it can maintain high temperatures when food is placed into the fryer. The fryer’s thermostat coil is also immersed in oil so reducing the heat on the fryer’s thermostat produces an instant drop in the oil’s temperature. These dual thermostats make frying faster and safer since temperature controls are more reliable.
Other perks on this deep fryer include a lid with a viewing window to watch your food cook, a filter that absorbs oil and prevents it from splattering all over the kitchen, and a cord storage compartment for the detachable power cord. For added convenience, the filter, oil container, and frying basket with handle can all be cleaned in the dishwasher. Euro-Pro offers a one-year limited warranty on this deep fryer. --Cristina Vaamonde

Very good deep fryer only one reservation, January 11, 2003
John Tilelli MD "Bookaholic" (Apopka, FL USA)
A lot of the bad reputation fried foods have is the result of pan-fried foods. Too cool, and the food comes out oily. Too hot and it is raw in the middle (or burned). Ah, that's the key! Temperature is everything in fried foods. To realy fry something you really need temperature control and you can't do that in a skillet. Frying is a universal cooking activity : even the most health-conscious of us have to fry Something every once in a while. So if you are serious about wanting your food as yummy as possible with as little fat as possible, you're going to have to invest in a deep fryer.
Here's the rub: home quality deep fryers come in two flavors. One is the plastic case, with a hinged lid, a sealing device, like a locking handle (sometimes built into the cover), and a metal bowl lying OVER a heating element and thermostat. The other, like the Euro Pro has a heating element that is immersed in the oil, as is the thermostat, a loose-fitting lid, and an immersible basket. This.
Truly Great Value and a Great Fryer, February 19, 2003
Chris G. Berardi "agilefalcon" (Fort Worth, TX United States)
I waited several weeks for this fryer to show up on my doorstop. In the meantime, I had to contend with managing my excitement with every Emeril live show. Have you watched Emeril? If so, you know that he uses a great looking fryer that is built into the countertop. It looks hot judging by the speed at which it cooks, and the great looking food that comes out of it. Anyway, I wanted to be able to do the same thing without the inconsistency and waste of using a pot or deep frying pan.
So, the Euro-Pro shows up today and gets an immediate wash and dry. I opened a fresh gallon of corn oil and dump it in; set the thermostat to 370 F, and while it heats quickly mix a New Orleans beignet batter (ok, I cheated and used the Cafe du Monde mix).
Since I'd never prepared this dough before, I wasn't sure about the consistency. I simply followed the un, deux, trois, instructions. After cutting squares out of the dough I dumped them into my fryer. Ten seconds later they were floating at.
Very Short Lived, January 30, 2004

Unlike the reviewer from Lexington NC (Short Lived, July 9, 2003), the fryer I received did not take six months for the circuit breaker to start popping. It started with the very first use and did it again on each of the next two uses. Fortunately for me it was within the first week after receiving the unit and I returned it.
