Nice Medium Size Fryer

Well made fryer. Good stainless steel outside, and the oil container is enamel ware. I used an infrared temperature gun to check the accuracy of the oil temperature, it was very accurate. The best feature about this is that it comes completely apart for easy cleaning and changing the oil. The basket is heavy stainless steel, cleans easy and will sit above the oil to load it and let the oil drain after frying. It holds exactly one bottle of oil from the store, which I thought was another plus. I made french fries, they came out perfect. I have cooked fried chicken in it twice. The first time I cooked with the lid on and the chicken came out moist and tender, perfect. Second time I left the lid off and the chicken still came out moist, but crispy on the outside, great color. This is a great fryer I just wish it was a little bit bigger.


Let's have a fish fry!!

I live in the South where fried food is part of our daily diet. However, health problems have prevented me and my husband from eating too many fried foods. They are too greasy and even though you use healthier oils, it still cannot be good as a steady diet. I rarely fry anything. My husband loves to fish and recently brought home some fresh Bass. Luckily for us, the Proctor Silex 1.5L Professional-Style Deep Fryer in Stainless Steel showed up at my house at just the right time! We had a fish fry! I have had fryers in the past but never one like the Proctor Silex Deep Fryer so I was anxious to try it out. First of all, it is made of stainless steel so it will be much easier to keep clean and it looks professional for sure. I do like the compact design. I would have preferred a larger size. The small size does fry more than you think it would though. What makes the Proctor Silex Deep Fryer a winner to me is the Ready Light. It lets you know for sure when the temperature is right for frying. The right temperature keeps the food from absorbing too much oil so your food is much healthier! Did I mention the basket?! It makes frying a snap! You lift the basket and let it rest on the side so any excess oil will drip back into the fryer. I love it! As you may be able to tell from one of my pictures, the fish I fried in the Proctor Silex Deep Fryer was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Best of all, it was not greasy!


Restaurant-Quality Fried Foods at Home

After trying this little fryer for more than a week, I think it's definitely a keeper! Not only does it make delicious fries, chicken wings, onion rings and okra, it is very compact and easy to store. I love the safety features: it has a magnetic plug on the element; a green light to let you know when it's the right temperature; a temperature dial; a vented cover; and a detailed instruction booklet. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because when I used the lid that comes with it, steam did come out of the vents on top of the lid, but steam also came out of the front where there is a cutaway for the basket handle. That is it's only design flaw; it could use more vents on top. This is a perfect sized fryer for one or 2 people. If you are cooking for more, then you really need a bigger fryer. We cooked fries, wings, okra, onion rings and batter-dipped mushrooms. When cooking fries, you simply load the basket and lower it into the oil. With batter-dipped foods, you first lower the basket into the hot oil, and then carefully lower each batter-dipped piece into the oil. Homemade onion rings tend to sink and the batter gets embedded in the basket. It's best to use store-bought frozen onion rings in this fryer. Be sure to use good quality oil--peanut, canola and palm oils will not smoke up your home. Unplug when done. Please make sure the oil is completely cool before pouring into another container. Cleanup is very easy, making this fryer fun and easy to use. Bon appetit!


Single serving size

This is going to be a good news/bad news type of review. On the good news side, it is very nice. It is a reliable brand name. It does work well, just be sure that you are using liquid oil and not solid shortening in it. I was really excited to get this deep fryer because it was “time to make the donuts”. However, and this is where the “bad news” starts, I had read all of the instructions, etc. I put in some solid shortening, as I usually do to fry the donut dough, and it started smoking, so I added some oil to it and it stopped smoking and melted the shortening. I think the 1.5 Liter Professional-style name is a little misleading, at least for me it was. I was expecting something a little bigger. Anyway, I don’t like that the element in actually in the oil instead of being under the pan that holds the oil. It takes up space that could be used for frying food. Further, the basket is very small due to the reason I just stated and will only hold maybe a serving size of French fries, chicken tenders, etc. The instructions give you very specific foods that should be used with this machine and gives cautions about using uncooked meats, etc. (in other words, you probably shouldn’t cook these things in this fryer). Also, the cleanup is kind of a pain due to oil and having to be careful not to submerge the element. Every other part of this fryer is washable. So, all in all, I am rather disappointed with this product. I certainly wouldn’t have bought this item myself. Would I recommend it? Probably not. I give this item a thumbs down, unfortunately.


Deep Fried Dream!

The Proctor Silex 1.5 L Professional-Style Deep Fryer, with the stainless steel finish, is like an absolute dream come true for my family and me. With dimensions of 8”x8”x9” and easy to clean stainless steel finish, it fits perfectly on any countertop, matching any décor. It easy to read temperature setting dial is great it takes the guesswork of how hot your oil is before cooking, no more oil saturated food. It also has a magnetic electric cord, so when you detach from the fryer it will stick to the back of the fryer so it is easy to find the next time you need it. It cooks chicken wings to perfection in nine minutes add fresh fried potatoes and you have either a quick snack or light meal in under 20 minutes. There is a recipe book included in the instruction manual so there is no guesswork on what temperature to cook foods at. I cannot say enough good things about this deep fryer. Having worked over 20 years in the restaurant industry, it truly is a miniature version of a professional deep fryer. I would most definitely recommend this product to my friends and family. With the holidays just around the corner it makes a perfect gift for yourself or that person you know who loves deep fried food.
