Rated 5 out of 5Â by Waintenance Great for grilling a steak.
My old Big Boss lasted at least 10 years. I just got it's replacement and used it to cook a steak. You can't get a barbecue ready and have a steak done this quick. I do prefer a charcoal cooked steak, but can't always have it that way.
There is one thing to know, if you take the food out before the timer is done. Let it run out on it's own, the only thing you can do it break the knob trying to turn it back to zero.
I have recommended this to other people.
It's great for those who are watching their cholesterol.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Nothappy333 This fryer doesn't fry, doesn't do anything
This product does NOT work. I followed the directions in the booklet to prepare frozen French fries. After 20 minutes, it wasn't working. So I turned the temperature all the way up. After 90 minutes, the food still wasn't cooked - it even was partially frozen.
I managed to find an email address for the product - the customer service numbers supplied with the fryer were not for this product. Two months ago, I was told I'd get a replacement but I'm still waiting. I emailed the company again two weeks ago - and now, there's not even a response to my emails.
Poor product, poor customer service.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Jehuruth Takes longer to cook and not fried taste
I have been hungry for Fried Chicken. I have a Nu-Wave, but it doesn't give a fried taste. So I bought the Big Boss. Following their instructions in their cookbook, I made fried chicken.
First, while it looked like it was frying while cooking, it didn't come close even tasting fried.
Second, at the end of time in their cookbook, the skin was done, looked good, but the chicken was way under cooked. When I cooked it till the chicken was done, the skin was burnt.
Third, for as big as the product is, it doesn't cook much. Definitely not family sized. In order to cook enough for me and my two boys, I would have to have two Big Bosses to make enough chicken and another one or two to make a side like fries.
This product was a real disappointment.
