Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very good first experience with fryer We bought this fryer for several reasons: we wanted an inexpensive "entry level" fryer, we wanted something that had gotten good reviews and we were going to hold our first "Lobsterfest" and needed something big to do lobsters, steamers, potatoes and corn on the cob in. We didn't buy it with the intention of frying a turkey - yet! The free delivery was nice, and setting it up was very easy - attach the burn plate and the burner, put two batteries in the time and you're done. Once you read the directions on starting it up, it's easy to get going. It brought our 1/2 filled pot of water to a boil in no time, and all our food came out perfectly cooked. I wish that there WASN'T a 15 minute timer, though. I understand that for safety when frying a turkey it's a good idea, but once I figured out that when the green light starts flashing you have 5 minutes until it shuts off, I was good to go. Just timed myself to watch closely at the 5 minute mark, and I was right there to relight the burner. I really liked our first try with this, and besides more lobsters, we ARE going to try a small turkey at some point. I recommend this fryer, as long as you understand it DOES have a time and you HAVE to operate it WITH the timer. I've read some people have "rewired" the timer to bypass it but I'm not an electrical genius and with my luck, bad things would happen. August 31, 2011
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Changed shape on the first day of use So we wanted to a do a deep-fried tail gate party. We had everything, mozzarella sticks, jalepeno poppers, egg rolls, deep fried snickers, uncrustables, you name it. First of all, when it came and we opened it, dented with a whole, we found that out the hard way when the oil started coming out and going near the flame. We luckily caught it in time before it was a fire hazard. We emptied out some of the oil so it was below the hole, because hey...we needed to eat. Anyways, its a pain because it auto turns off after 15 minutes, so you have to constantly relight. Its evidently not supposed to get over a certain heat which is why they have this safety feature on here.So then what is the point was my question? Anyways, we jimmy-rigged it so it would stay on longer because we had a lot to cook, it literally changed from a circular pot to an oval pot in one day. The plus side, the food came out great, it was just way too much of a hassle to make it happen. Home Depot customer service took it back when i brought it in, no questions and fully refunded my money and the cost of shipping. I was very impressed and satisfied by this. Spend a little extra and get something nicer. November 8, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Brinkman is better Safer and lower price The Brinkman fryer kit is much better safer and priced a few dollars less....and available through Home Depot! the brinkman has may features this one just dos'nt have....Temp Control/tip-over shutoff...and the 3 U-shaped legs are much more stable on uneven ground/grass/dirt which is where you should be using this anyways!!! well you want level as possible but not on your driveway garage/carport or deck!!! and at least 25ft from your house in any direction (the oil can and will stain concrete).......that square base and no cutoff if the pot falls off is just asking for trouble......the brinkman has a spring loaded cutoff switch to stop the gas if pot falls over and also a temprature cutoff that will shut down the burner if it exceeds the 400 degree flashpoint of peanut oil November 25, 2010
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product for the price. The only issue I had with this product was that the burner just didn't seem to burn very efficiently and took quite a long time to heat the oil to temperature. January 11, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 GOOD FOR THE BUCK For the price you can't go wrong compared to other fryers. November 20, 2010
