After much shopping around, I am delighted with this deep fat fryer. Hot fat terrifys me, the Delonghi F26215 is very sturdy with non slip rubber feet and cool surround walls. The idicator light shows when its reached temparature the removable basket slids into a grip and folds in so there is nothing to bump into. Then the clever bit, its, not completely without smell but with a removable/ replaceable filter, compared with other friers the "chip smell" is minimum, priceless in a small house!
The food I have cooked has been spot on, crisp and perfect. you can easily see when your food is just right by peering in the window on the top, when its ready you can leave the basket hooked on the rim to drain away any excess fat with non greasy results.
Cleaning!! IS A Dream!! the top comes off and the "non stick" drum slides out and can go in the dishwasher . . . . How enlightend is that.
I love it, you will love it. There are cheaper friers out there but this has been money well spent!
This is the first deep fat fryer i have owned, I dont like to use it to often, just for a treat and it is that. It is simple fryer, that makes lovely food. It is extremely easy to set up, it is mains operated, so all you have to plug it in and cook.
You open the fryer by the lid at the top, there is a handle of the front to lift the basket for the food, this minimises any safety issues. There is a temperature bar at the bottom of the fryer, which allows you to adjust the temperature.
The fryer has a 1 kg food capacity which requires a maximum of 2.3 litres of oil. The handle on the front of the fryer, folds in and out to keep it neat and tidy or if you want to store it away. There is no horrible smell off the fryer as there can be from some other makes. It is easy to empty the oil and clean.
The only negative thing I would have to say about this fryer is that it can take a while to heat up.
As I only use this occasionally, it has not had much use, but it has not gave me any problems and I would recommend it, if you want an easy fryer to use and one that makes really nice chips!
