Rated 1 out of 5Â by BusyUtahMom Wanted to like it...
I love most of my Cuisinart product. However, this one we ended up just throwing in the garbage. It doesn't have a temperature control on it and it doesn't get the oil hot enough. So, it made it hard to flash fry food so it was crispy, so the food always seemed full of oil and soggy. Because oil loses some of its heating properties after use, we were forced to put new oil in every time we used it because it just didn't get hot enough after a single use. As for ease of use and cleaning, I would give that a star, because it is pretty simple and easy to clean. I also really loved the size of it. I wish it had worked out, because in every other way I really liked it.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Haileigh The deep fryer is just a good little fryer
I purchased this fryer, because we eat fish twice a week, and I had been deep frying our fish on the stove, and decided that we needed a deep fryer; and I could not be happier with my purchase. It does everything that the other reviews said it would do. We tried making our own french fries and they came out great. This fryer is great for two people, but if you have a larger family I would suggest a larger fryer. I really do like all items made by Cuisinart.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by ChickieG Magnetic plug is terrible
Received this as a wedding gift - took almost a year to try it and was very disappointed. The magnetic plug kept un plugging - but I didn't notice right away causing the food to sit in oil...basket is very small 2 chx drumsticks at a time @ 13-14 minutes eachl, it would take 3 hours to feed a small family. I am definately bringing this back and getting a large capacity one with a "regular" plug.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by LouieBell GREAT FRYER!!
This is our first fryer and we are VERY happy with it. It is just my husband and I at home and it is the PERFECT size for the two of us. It heats up extremely fast and is very easy to clean. I have and wil continue to recommend it to family, friends and co-workers.
