With a personal deep fryer, you choose the type of oil you want to use, allowing for more heart-healthy choices.

Top Features of the Cuisinart Deep Fryer

  • The bowl has a maximum capacity of 1.1 liters of oil, so you don’t need to use a large amount of oil to successfully fry your food.

Non-Stick Bowl:  **The die-cast oil bowl is nonstick, allowing you to fit even more food into the bowl (as opposed to the frying basket) without worrying about not being able to get it back out.

  • Cooking Time:  This appliance heats up fast and fries food fast, cutting cooking time in half.

  • Size:  The small size – 11.2 x 8.2 x 7.4 inches – easily fits onto countertops and stores easily.

  • Smart Thermostat:  An adjustable thermostat allows you to set the perfect temperature for every type of food you want to fry.

  • Lengthy Warranty:  A 3-year warranty guarantees that any problems can be fixed.

  • Odor Control:  A removable charcoal filter removes odors, so your house doesn’t end up smelling like a fast food joint.

Pros of the Cuisinart

  • Heating time is approximately 3-4 minutes, and cooking time is the same. Last-minute meals and side dishes can be made quickly and easily.

  • The cover closes tight over the basket so no oil splashes outside of the appliance.

  • A clear window allows you to check on the progress of your food without having to open the lid.

  • The carbon filter is removable and washable, making cleanup easy. It doesn’t need to be washed after every use, making cleanup even easier.

  • A green light lets you know when the oil is heated to your desired temperature.

  • The stainless steel exterior is very simple to clean.

  • The addition of a spout makes it easy to drain the oil after use.

  • All of the parts except for the heating unit are dishwasher safe, so there’s no need to clean everything by hand.

  • The small size makes it more convenient to use healthier oils without the risk of waste.

  • This fryer costs less than $50, so you’re not breaking the bank to buy a new appliance.

  • The appliance automatically shuts off after a certain period of time, so there’s no risk of you accidentally leaving it on all night.

Cons of the Cuisinart

  • Overloading the fryer will cause food to cook unevenly, leaving some parts fried and some parts oily.

  • If basket is left in the fryer while preheating, the oil won’t heat to its maximum temperature.

  • The cord is held onto the appliance by a magnet, so any slight bump may detach the cord and cause the fryer to stop working mid-use.

  • The cord is very short, so you must have counter space near an electrical outlet in order to use this appliance.

  • The temperature knob is plastic, and can melt if deep fryer is set to high heat for extended period of time.

  • Battered items tend to stick to the frying basket (though won’t stick if placed directly in the bowl).

  • There is no built-in timer, so you need to set a separate timer and keep track of your food to make sure you don’t forget about it.
