  • Foods are less greasy than their fast food alternatives.


  • Though the oil tank has fill lines inside the tank, they can be difficult to see when filling and it can easily overflow if you aren’t careful.

  • The magnetic strip on the power cord can be weak sometimes and fall off without warning.

  • Some people have reported leaking problems with the filtration system, and you need to make sure the oil container is in exactly the right place before it begins to filter.

  • The fryer is very large, so it may not be easy to store (19.1×12.6×16 inches).

If you’re someone who loves the comfort of fried food but doesn’t like heading out to their local fast food restaurant every time they get a craving, the Emeril 2.65 pound Deep Fryer is perfect for you. This particular model is especially helpful for those with large families or who tend to host large social gatherings. Chicken wings are easily fried for a Sunday football game, and a large quantity of chicken nuggets is easily made for all of those hungry kids. The oil filtration system makes cleanup a breeze, and the four preset temperatures take all the guesswork out of cooking. The next time you have a desire to run out and grab some fries, think about how much better they would be if you could make them in your own home.
