    I received the cover today...it fits with room to spare - enough oversize that I can wrap it under the feet to keep the wind from blowing it off when stored outside.

    Donw not really... french fries were included, but because there isn't a pic it really didn't happen! 😄

    i battered and some fried some fresh caught sea bass for fish and chips. came out great. one thing of note, the first couple of fillets i dropped in stuck to the basket due to the relatively low level of the max oil marking. I did find on the next batches if i just shake it around a bit when they are dropped in then they seemed to be fine.

    as for clean up, the oil filtration worked as advertised and clean up was pretty easy since it all comes apart.

    I've done shrimp for our first po'boys and French fries, works as advertised and is pretty easy to clean. The oil recovery is pretty cool as well. Thanks for sharing this!

    I see you went healthier than me with chicken. My first attempt was homemade french fries and my second was donuts. Both turned out great.

    Thank goodness it is back to 130$ now. I would have grabbed it at 79!

    Soooo... here is my first cook in the new T-Fal deep fryer. Chicken Tenders https://www.mashed.com/332332/copyca...strips-recipe/. A good recipe - worked well!
    I'm very happy with the way the fryer performed. One note... be careful with the temperature control knob; without careful observation it appears symmetrical, but there is a small oval molded into one end of it to indicate the pointing end; I was working outside after dark and didn't notice, so my first batch was dropped into cold oil. It still came out OK after pulling it back up and heating the oil correctly. I enhanced that control knob pointer end with a silver sharpee so it won't happen again.
    Cleanup took a bit of time, but wasn't messy or hard. If this fryer lasts and performs like tonight, it will be a winner.

    Oh, sad 😒... wouldn't it be easier if they just gave us all the same fair price instead of playing games with us! Hang in there 😣

    DANGIT!!! Knew I should have pulled the trigger yesterday. Back up to $120 today. Oh well, hopefully it will drop again in price before Christmas.

    Sounds great... I'll mostly be frying for two, so hope capacity isn't an issue.

    I've had one for a couple of years. I really like it, the filtration system works quite well. You can use the oil over and over so you're not wasting as much. My only complaint is the capacity, it is rather limited. You have to fry things in small batches but other than that it's another appliance winner !!!
