family size deep fryer

By 

from Oakdale, CT

Comments about T-Fal Family Pro Fryer:

My favorite thing about this deep fryer is the large size of it. The other nice part about this deep fryer is how easy it is for me to use. The deep fryer has a built in timer which is helpful for keeping track of how long i have been making the food in the fryer. There is a light on the deep fryer which tells me when the oil is hot enough for me to put food inside it. The parts of this deep fryer are dishwasher safe so that i can clean them. The basket for me to put the food inside is easy for me to remove because it has a good handle. The long handle that lets me control the basket also keeps splattering from happening. The pot inside is non stick and keeps a good appearance for a long time. The large size of the deep fryer makes enough food for my whole family so that they can all enjoy a tasty meal.

Best deep fryer I have ever owned.

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about T-Fal Family Pro Fryer:

The T-Fal Family Pro Fryer Digital is one of the best products I have ever owned. It is compact enough to put in the cabinet with little room used up. Easy to clean with the pot coming put and the heat elements are removable as well. Carrying handles do not get hot so it is easy to move from place to place without getting burned.  Sleek new design. Easy to read digital numbers. Has a timer and easy to set tempature buttons. Uses less oil than traditional fryers. Large basket to fry more at once. Magnetic plug makes it easy to unplug. Does not take up a lot of counter space.

The Tefal Family Pro Fryer makes meals a breeze

By 

from Middlebourne, WV

Comments about T-Fal Family Pro Fryer:

The Tefal Family Pro Fryer is a welcome addition to my kitchen.  Its digital features is so easy to set it truly makes deep frying a breeze.  The Tefal Family Pro Digital Fryer also features a magnetic plug.  It is a wonderful concept, but it still needs some work.  For my family the large cooking tub is great, but for a smaller family it would be nice to have less oil to buy and worry about storing.  The filter system is also a great idea it definitely keeps the cooking oil cleaner longer. When it is time to empty the oil and clean the fryer, it comes apart very easily and is fairly easy to clean. The removable basket makes it much easier to drain the grease before serving the food.  The Tefal Family Pro Fryer also has a removable  heating element so there is little risk of shock when cleaning it. It  preforms equally well for french fries and meat. I would highly recommend the Tefal Family Digital Pro Fryer for any busy mom with a family that enjoys deep fried foods.

The Tefal Family Pro Fryer Digital is amazingly easy to use.

By 

from Reynoldsburg, OH

Comments about T-Fal Family Pro Fryer:

The Tefal Family Pro Fryer Digital was a Christmas gift from my parents. I love to make my own french fries, doughnuts, egg rolls, and more, and this product has exceeded my expectations in every area. It comes with a handy basket with automatic lift, a digital timer and temperature guage that is completely adjustable. The Pro Fryer also has pre-set temperatures and times for common items like french fries, chicken tenders, and so much more! It also has an audible sound when the desired temperature is reached and when the timer goes down to 0. My only two issues with this deep fryer would be that it takes up a lot of counter space and the audible timer can be a bit annoying if you don't get to it immediately, because it just keeps going until you press the button to make it stop.  I would easily buy this product again if anything happened to it, as it has been a blessing to my kitchen endeavors. I've used Fry Daddys and professional fryers before, and I have to say this is the most similar to professional fryers that the home cook is going to find. The rectangular shape is much more user-friendly than the round deep fryers available today.

fries things well, not durable

By 

from Thibodaux, LA

Comments about T-Fal Family Pro Fryer:

This fryer heats up really fast, but it takes a ton of oil to fry things because there's so much wasted space in the fryer. I have to use almost a whole big jug just to fry chicken legs. I also only can fry about 2-3 legs at a time because the basket is so small compared to the fryer. It is great for fries and okra and stuff though, you can fit quite a bit of those in there.

One horrible factor of this fryer is that the batter of freshly battered foods sticks to the basket. It defeats the purpose of battering if it's just going to stick to the bottom. I think they could have designed this a lot better to be more efficient. I love how you can disassemble the fryer to clean it completely. But, when you try to clean the actual outside of the fryer, all the words and pictures come off with just wiping it. I love the temperature settings and pictures to help you know what temperature everything should go on, but those also come of when you clean it.

Not what I would expect from TFal

        Comments about T-Fal Family Pro Fryer:

        The TFal Family Pro Fryer was a bit of a disappointment to me.  It looks nice, as expected from TFal.  However it takes A LOT of oil to fry anything.  It is also a mess to clean up.  It is has an aluminum filter that seems to trap grease and be impossible to clean.  I seem to make a big mess just trying to disassemble the parts to clean them.

        The Pro Fryer's features are a brushed stainless steel exterior with black accents; a removable basket with a foldable handle.  (I find it difficult to adjust the handle to make the basket fit back in the fryer once I've removed it to add food to be fried or to clean it.)  It has a cool touch lid with a large viewing window.  One plus is that it has an adjustable thermostat and a light to indicate when the oil has reached the desired temperature.  The magnetic safety plug is another feature that I am not sure I like because it easily becomes unattached to the fryer.  All the attachements are dishwasher safe which I find a great benefit.
