So glad I bought this. I was looking to replace my cheap fry-daddy fryer that my son had cooked and left Crisco in.....I would rather buy a new one than spend the effort to get it clean again. This one has a timer and a temp control, as well as 3 different baskets. You can cook fish and fries at the same time in the 2 smaller baskets, or 1 big batch of whatever in the larger basket. So easy to assemble and disassemble/clean. It goes in the dishwasher, and the oil reservoir has a spout for easy pouring of the grease back into the container. For less than $100 it is a great value. Spend the extra $50 and get this instead of the cheap ones you see at the box stores. You'll be glad you did. The time and temp control lets you drop your food and walk away. No need to hover over it guessing if its done yet.

Product does an okay job, but the filter insert allows big chunks of whatever you were frying through. When I went to poor the oil back into the large jug, I noticed large pieces of fish batter and okra batter that the filter had let through.

Love, love, LOVE making better than restaurant fries with ease in my own kitchen. After contemplating the cheaper versions, and reading bad reviews about how the blades break and bend so easy, I decided to go with this one. Great choice. It is so easy to use, and the blades are sturdy and sharp. Cuts through large potatoes and sweet potatoes with ease. My son loves the home made fries. Do yourself a favor, spend the little bit of extra money for a quality product that actually works and will last. You'll be glad you did.
