I bought this little beauty for my fiance last christmas, and although it wasn't his main gift, it's the one he loves the most. This little kitchen gadget is great for him as I don't personally eat fried food that often and getting a large frying machine would have been silly- it's the perfect size for a single serving or snack.
It's design is very compact and easily fits into the cupboard- which is great as I only have a small kitchen and don't have the room for a robust model. But where it's size comes greatly into use is it doesnt allow you to cook too much, so there's no wastage and not such a chance my partner will be tempted to have larger portions, something I'm very fond of (: Furthermore, according to my partner, the food it cooks is great and tastes just as good as any other deep fat fryer. The only disadvantage is that i tend to find it takes a little while to heat up the oil, but overall its a great little addition to any kitchen (maybe not a family kitchen though)
Fanstic little fryer ideal for one person for chips, great for snacks like onion rings and homemade scotch eggs.
Heats up really quickly. The filter on the lid does a great job of trapping smells.
The only problem i have found is the handle on the basket breaks very easily, not sure how you get hold of a replacement basket but im still using mine just without the basket. Not ideal but the fryer didnt cost much.
The fryer is ideal if you dont use it very often, if you eat a lot of chips or fried foods or even have a average size family, say 2 adults 2 children. Then this is not the fryer for you. Its ideal for use once or twice every month any more that that and i dont think the little fryer could cope.
It does the job and it is as it says a snack fryer.
