CooksEssentials 3 Quart 1700 Watt Stainless Steel Deep Fryer
I bought this because I didn't want the mess of frying or having to sit over the stove. This thing works wonders. I'm not a chef and don't cook a lot, but this was the easiest most convenient fryer ever! I can fit about 6 pieces of chicken and fry it partially frozen in 15 mins! It's very easy to clean and stores really easy in small areas.....loves it!
Do Not Purchase
I bought this for my daughter. After only five usage it stopped working. when you plug it in it does not heat up at all. Very disappointed.
French Fry Lovers Unite...
I bought this fryer to make perfect French Fries. It worked. My wife is planning many other uses for it. Perfect size (like a toaster oven). Cleans up easy and so simple to use. We both love our new fryer.
This frier does everything they said it would do love it would recomend it to anyone
Expected it to work!
I bought this a while ago and decided to pull it out to make fries. I poured the oil in and plugged it in. Hate the plug. Kept falling out. Turned it on and no lights went on and no heat. Not worth sending it back. Should have bought a fry daddy!!!!!!!!!!
Jury still out
I like the size and performance. Not happy with the recommended oil level, doesn't cover half of basket.
I love the size of this fryer! It fits nicely on the counter without taking up a lot of space. Cooks the food well and heats up quickly.
Exactly the right size
I love this fryer! The 3 qt size is perfect for my family of 4 (including two teen boys). Oil heats up quickly and maintains temperature well. It's easy to use and great for a quick after school snack. Clean up is easy too. There's just nothing about this product I don't love!
Brought this fryer on clearance a week ago and I also saw the 2.5 QT. but this was a better deal! Over the weekend I used it for the first time and it works great! Did not have any problems with it all, parts of the fryer is dishwasher safe and it that is a plus. Highly recommend this. Thanks QVC for a great product
Not A Great Buy
This is a great size and idea except for the fact that my plug would not plug in...idk if it was defected or if that was how it is supposed to be, but it seemed flimsy and loose. I guess it is for safety purposes, but I did not like it at all. It seemed to be a magnet plug???? Very strange....back it goes!!!
Excellent Deep Fryer
I have had this since May of 2012. I don't write reviews early on because I like to know how the item holds up over time. Well, let me just say that I love this fryer. I have had no issues at all and it cooks beautifully. I just saw that they have a 2.5 quart 1500 watt fryer that is a few dollars more than this larger, more powerful fryer. If you want a deep fryer at a great value, I highly recommend this one.
Love this deep fryer
This deep fryer is just AWESOME. Love it. Have used it for French fries, onion rings and chicken and they were really good. I used frozen fries and they were done in 5 minutes. The way you can hook the basket on to drain the grease is great. Also love the easy clean up. You can take it apart , I washed it all in dish water except for the heating element which I just wiped off. No more greasy, nasty fryer. I would definitely recommend this to everyone.
The magnet on the cord could stand to be a little stronger but as long as it's not bumped or messed with it does stay on.
It does take a bit of grease, so what I did was put 2 coffee filters together, placed them in my colander (strainer), put it over a large bowl and poured the luke warm grease in to strain it. Then stored it in a large lock and lock in the refrigerator. Stays good so you can re-use it and clean the fryer between uses.
