These appliances are a special breed. Both commercial-grade and home-grade fryers differ significantly. In fact, commercial models often have 10-inch deep frying barrels. Smaller personal models, on the other hand, often have 3- or 4-inch barrels. We discuss the features of each type -- including electric versus gas models and oil types -- to help you make the best decision for your family. We then test the units side-by-side with 3 different foods including chicken nuggets, French fries, and tater tots. The deep fryers test highlights which units consistently produce the best fries.

Simoe Deep Fryer with and Basket Drip Hook

by Simoe

Delicious without Waiting & 60-minute Timer Simoe home fryer adopts 1700W powerful fully immersible heating element and "S" shaped heating tube design to ensure rapid heating of food and continuous heat preservation. 60-minute Timer, electric fryer is great for cooking French Fries, onion rings, egg rolls, fried chicken, panko shrimp and any other deep fried food.

The Simoe deep fryer comes with several features that we normally see only on high-end models, like a rotating temperature dial and a power limiter. The dial makes it easy to adjust, and you can set the temperature to 302, 325, 350, 375, or 402 degrees. The timer is convenient, and the power indicator light lets you know when electricity is flowing to the fryer and when it's turned off. The fryer has a stainless steel basket, a lid, and a viewing window so you can see the food as it cooks. The non-stick interior makes cleaning easy, and it's big enough to fit a whole chicken. The fryer is about 16 inches tall, so it takes up space on a countertop, but it's tall enough that it's hard to miss when cooking. The fryer is easy to use, it cooks food quickly and evenly, and it's inexpensive.

CUSIMAX Deep Fryer

Enough Capacity & Easy Clean1200w wattage heats the oil fast and save your energy, 2.5 Liters capacity for whole family cooking and no children need to wait for turn. Removable lid, basket are dishwasher safe, fixed pot with non-stick coadting is also easy to clean.

The CUSIMAX Electric Fryer is remarkably versatile. It fries, grills, roasts, and steams, and it does all that well. The temperature range is wide and high enough to handle most foods, and the timer is long enough that you won't have to watch your food for hours. It also doesn't take up much space, and it comes with a handy hook for draining. Unfortunately, there's no oil level indicator, so you'll have to eyeball how much oil you're using. The fryer is well-made and easy to clean, too. My only complaint is that the timer is tricky to set, and it's difficult, if not impossible, to set the timer without consulting the instruction manual.

The Aigostar's basket is also made from stainless steel, which is more durable than plastic, but it's harder to clean. The Aigostar fryer comes with a one-year warranty and is backed by a 24-hour customer service line.

1. Detachable design: The whole machine adopts a detachable design. The lid, basket, handle, tank, heater, and oil residue partition can all be disassembled for easy cleaning; simple installation, suitable for adults.

The Tiziri fryer is large and fairly heavy, but that's to be expected for a fryer of this caliber. The machine is well-built and feels sturdy. The controls are straightforward and idiot-proof, and the fryer's dual burners and heat sensors keep the temperature steady. The fryer's 12-liter tanks are large enough to serve up a feast, and the machine's two baskets make frying multiple items easy. The baskets are made of stainless steel and are easy to clean. The Tiziri fryer comes with a supply of its own oil, which is convenient, but it's expensive compared to other brands of oil. (If you plan to use the fryer regularly, you'll want to consider getting a larger tank and refilling it with your own oil.) The fryer is noisy, and the water reservoir is noisy, too, but it's not loud enough to be a problem.
