    The BEST deep fryer I’ve ever owned!, December 7, 2014

    This review is from: T-fal FR8000 Oil Filtration Ultimate EZ Clean Easy to clean 3.5-Liter Fry Basket Stainless Steel Immersion Deep Fryer, 2.6-Pound, Silver (Kitchen)
    I’ve had several deep fryers through the years and this is the best one ever! The immersion type heating element heats the oil fast and keeps it up to cooking temperature even with frozen foods. I used pure peanut oil for my first test frying with this fryer as I’ve have such good results using that oil in the past. It costs a lot more but is well worth it. My wife commented that the foods I cooked tastes as good as some better restaurants we go to.

    After the oil cooled, I just flipped the lever on the front and the oil was strained through the fine mesh stainless steel screen in the bottom of the stainless steel tank and into the plastic storage tank underneath.. There is a pour spout in one back corner of the plastic tank that makes it easy to pour the oil back into the jug it came in for storage. The plastic tank has a removable lid much like a Tupperware container making it easy to clean.

    Everything but the power cord and the heating element/control unit can go into the dishwasher! That right there is one of the best features ever. So, there isn’t really much of a mess at all.

    The power cord is held on to the control unit with a magnet. I’m thinking it’s probably a safety feature so if someone snags or pulls on the cord, it will just come off instead of dragging down the whole deep fryer.

    I think it’s the one to own! Get yourself one!

    The fryer to get!, December 14, 2014

    This is my first fryer, and I am really glad I chose this one. I’ve used others at my family’s house, and the main issues are, of course, how many times can you re-use the same oil in the fryer, and when you have to dump it out and clean the cumbersome oily thing. This leads to not really using the thing… With this fryer, those issues are a thing of the past! The oil filtration system seems to work very well. I’ve only had this a short while and only cooked a couple batches in it so far, but I’ll share my experiences.

    First thing you do when you get it out of the box is disassemble the parts (oil-saving box with lid, main oil bowl, basket, and lid) and put them in the dishwasher. You just can’t wash the control unit (part with the dial and the heating rods) in the dishwasher, but that is a small part really and easy to sponge off. I can get everything into the dishwasher except for the main housing – which is safe to put in the washer, but just won’t fit vertically in my machine, so I sponge that too which isn’t a problem since it’s the outer-most part of the machine and doesn’t come into contact with the oil. I realized right away that this was going to be a whole lot easier than my family’s old machine.

    The manual recommends vegetable oil – I went with peanut oil. After frying some hot dogs (you gotta try it – roll in a hot pan after frying to dry/blister them) and some breaded cheese-stuffed jalapenos as a test run, I turned the heat off and switched it to oil filtration mode. The machine knows the oil’s temperature, and will automatically begin filtering into the oil box on the bottom once the oil is at a safe temp (took ~2 hours for it to start – manual says ~3 hours.) When it was done, I pulled the oil box out to look at it and was amazed (the box holds the oil pretty well… there is a plug on the back end that you can unplug to pour the oil out, but the front hole the machine filters the oil down into stays open, so it will spill just a little if you shake it around too much – I lost a couple drops, no real problem, just a note. If you leave it in the machine and keep it upright, you will have no leaks/problems.) – the oil looked as good as new! But that was an easy test for it… My next run (re-using the filtered oil) was double-dredged (flour/egg/panko) oysters. They were awesome in a po’boy, by the way! After filtering the oil this time, it is clean in the box, but very slightly darker and does of course now have that seafood smell. I would use it again, for more seafood, but would want to change to fresh oil if I went back to chicken or something else. They recommend changing your oil after around 8-12 uses, so I don’t want to throw this oil out yet. It is pretty easy to poor the filtered oil into some other container marked “seafood”, but it would be nice if I could find a spare oil box of the same type so that I could have one for seafood, and one for other foods, and just re-use the appropriate oil box. I looked at T-Fal’s site, but can’t find an exact match – they do have spare boxes for a different model though (unsure if it would fit this model) so I am holding out hope. I’ll ask them and see what I can find… It would just add another layer of ease to the process.

    In summary, this fryer takes most of the hard parts of frying and throws them out with the wash. It is easy to use, and makes it a pleasure instead of a nightmare to fry quick side dishes with a meal, for example. I am very happy with this purchase.

    Best fryer on market including on review sites… but know your stuff too., January 13, 2015

    This review is from: T-fal FR8000 Oil Filtration Ultimate EZ Clean Easy to clean 3.5-Liter Fry Basket Stainless Steel Immersion Deep Fryer, 2.6-Pound, Silver (Kitchen)
    This is one of the best fryers on the market. I did a lot of research and T-fal’s FR8000 and previous models were top rated above your higher brands. They even had Emeril Lagasse name slapped on the previous models. Aside from the name this fryer lived up to every bit of my expectations. I knew what I was buying because of my research. I’ve cooked everything lately in my fryer. I made apple fritters, fries, and homemade chicken. The heating element heats the oil quickly and safe. The basket holds a large amount of food to help cut back on cooking time for a large family. I’ve added large amounts of food and the oil does drop temp the element kicks on and is brought back to right temp normally within 5 mins or less. The best feature on this fryer and living up to its name is its ability to clean with a breeze. You can have it filter the oil and I’ve reused it 8x already and probably can still get many more uses. Most of the parts with the exception of the heating element can be washed in the dishwasher. Overall, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this fryer.

    I do think that many people have given a bad review because of reasons that are not the machines fault. Study how to fry, study what you want in features, and know your product before use. Good luck and Enjoy! :)

    Heats up fast, the basket is very handy and you can move the basket so the food is out of the oil without opening the lid.

    I have been a fan of Hamilton Beach for some time now. They offer a quality product that is well-built, lasts and performs year after year, after year. I’ve bought their food processors, blenders, waffle makers and I have never been disappointed. This fryer is no exception. It is well thought out for cleaning, easy to use, easy to store and gets the job done. I would recommend.
