We have had our Tesco DFPS08 deep fat fryer for about a year or so now and we are quite pleased with it, though my New Year's resolution to eat more healthily will mean that Ia m using this appliance a lot less, I would think.
This is a good quality stainless steel deep fat fryer which cost us £24.95 and we picked it up from our Tesco Express Store. There were quite a few in stock at the time and we'd had a look online at the best ones to buy and this one consistently was coming up with five stars.
The fryer came in a large cardboard box with full set of instructions for use. This gadget holds a large capacity of oil - three litres to be exact and what I personally like about it is the fact that the wire basket comes off so I can just pop it into our dishwasher to clean it after we have been frying.
Using the fryer is so simple and easy to operate. Once on, you just turn the dial to get it to the temperature you want it to be at and a red light is displayed when the machine is switched on to let you know it's in operation. A green light comes on when your oil is heated to the required temperature. When your food is added to the hot oil, then the green light will go out temporarily as the oil is obviously cooler once the food has been added. This soon comes back up to temperature again however, once your food has started to cook.
We cook all sorts of stuff in our fryer, mainly potatoes I have to say and everything tastes great. The oil seems to heat up very rapidly and food is cooked to perfection every time. It's not something we use on a daily basis and therefore keep it in our cupboard a lot of the time, but fortunately it doesn't take up too much space.
Although the fryer is primarily stainless steel, it does have bits of black on it which looks nice with the décor in our kitchen.
It's simple and easy to use and is so easy to clean and a really handy gadget to have around the home.
Summary: Overall I'm pleased with this great gadget
