thermostat is steel?

Asked by: Flor
Everything that comes into contact with the oil is metal. The metal heating element and temperature sensors are permanently connected to the control unit, which is plastic. It appears that all components, EXCEPT the control/heating element unit, can be immersed for cleaning.

Customer Reviews

Professional Deep Fryer in Stainless is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fryer for the price I have used this fryer several times and am very pleased with the overall performance and quality. This is not a commercial unit, but is certainly adequate for my home use. It heats up fairly rapidly and the set temperature appears to be reasonably close to thermometer readings. The stated capacity is optimistic, since the oil temperature drops in proportion to the load size and starting food temps. I have great results with a pound of fish or chicken, starting from close to room temperature. I can cook about 1/2 pound of frozen fries without excessive temperature drop. This of course is all individual preference and is limited by physics rather than by the fryer itself. The unit is easy to set up and use, and I think the magnetic cord connection is a great idea to help prevent accidents caused by snagging the cord. Also, the cord length is quite short and the documentation says to not use an extension cord. The analog control is straightforward and simple to use. The timer bell volume is weak, but I cook more by appearance and color than by time, so that is a non-issue for me. Clean-up is relatively simple and most components are fully submersible. I have read several comments about the adequacy of the pour spout, but I pour into a funnel instead of trying to hit the oil container and find this works perfectly for me. Overall, I would recommend this fryer for occasional home use. It has reasonable capacity and temperature control, sets up and cleans up easily, and appears to be well engineered and constructed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well Worth What I Paid For It This fryer heated to specified temp of 325 in about 10 minutes with oil filled to max level. I did get a lot of spattering, but I realized later that the lid will contain that, if I had just used it - duh! The unit comes apart intelligently for very easy cleaning: lid, basket, basket handle,electrical connector, thermostat/timer control with heating element, oil pan and frame. The electrical connector doesn't plug into a socket like you would think, but has been changed to a magnetically connected plug that will easily fall off if the wire is slightly disturbed. I felt over protected. Also, the wire so short, again for our protection I suppose, that an extension cord was needed. It's maybe 24 inches long. I wanted to use it on my stove top under my hood to vent steam/grease, not on my counter under my cabinets. The so-called pour spout on the oil pan is a joke... a slight indentation in one corner that might help you pour out the cold oil, if you have the patience of Job. I chose to ladle out the oil back into my storage container. The unit fried up chicken tenderloins, potato quarters, shrimp and scallops beautifully. I was very pleased with my results. I look forward to a catfish fry next; it should do an excellent job. If the cord attached more securely and were longer, I would think it nearly perfect.
