I purchased this fryer for my wife as birthday gift - she wanted it so she could make gluten free tempura and onion rings. We've used it for onion rings, fried mushrooms, tempura shrimp along with fish and fries. It is a great deep fryer; it's heavy so it holds heat well and is very sturdy.
There is also a suggestion that the pot can be used for soups and stews. We used the pot for a large one pot meal for the family last weekend; it was fantastic. This is a great buy and my cooking wife really loves her birthday present, making me a pretty popular guy.
