Editorial Review

A Good Value

For the money this model is one of the best values on the market. It is easy to clean and very simple mechanically, so it is great for chefs who do not want to deal with digital controls: it’s all manual. The one thing to keep in mind is that it does not have built in timers, which for some is a negative, though there are plenty of chefs who dislike built in timers. It is a matter of preference. The bottom line is that it is a very dependable, low-cost machine that is great for anyone who needs to fry a variety of foods but doesn’t want a larger fryer that uses a lot of oil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product appears to be sturdy and well built. Has higher BTU capacity than other products in the same price class. Product was shipped on a timely basis and freight company called to confirm appointment prior to delivery. Good product for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Fryer I purchased this fryer about 1.5 months ago. We needed to downsize from a four basket fryer. I was a little hesitant to downsize to a two basket fryer, but this fryer has been a workhorse thus far. It maintains temperature well and was easy to install. I'd recommend getting casters from FSW, so you know they will fit. Shipping was quick and care was taken in securing the fryer to a pallet. Really pleased with product and service.
