We believe that cooking should be fun, and that delicious meals can be enjoyed while spending less time in the kitchen. For this update, we purchased 10 of the most popular deep fryers on the market, with 6 of them winning awards. We cooked fried foods from each fryer in separate test runs, evaluating performance based on the amount of oil they required, the ease of use, and the amount of food they prepared per hour. We also appraised their internal features and found several with programmable timers and temperature controls. Our in-depth review provides important insight into each of the contenders, and will help you learn about which fryer will make the best addition to your kitchen.

Deep frying, when done properly, requires less oil than many other methods. It is important to use the right oil, temperature, and technique to achieve the best results. We've tested dozens of deep fryers and insulated deep pots to determine which can handle larger batches of food. Additionally, we've tested countertop fryers, deep pots, and cast-iron fryers for projects ranging from quick snacks to larger, family meals.

T-fal Deep Fryer with Basket, Stainless Steel, Easy to Clean Deep Fryer, Oil Filtration, 2.6-Pound, Silver, Model FR8000

T-fal Deep Fryer with Basket

by Groupe SEB

DISHWASHER SAFE: Easy to clean with dishwasher safe parts

The T-fal Deep Fryer has plenty to recommend it, and it's our top pick for its high oil capacity, and its quick oil filtering system. The oil filtration system is a patented system that includes a slotted basket that collects oil as it drains from the fryer, and the collected oil is drained into a removable container, which can be reused. The fryer is also easy to clean, with a plastic and oil-free filter basket. The fryer has a 1700-watt heating element, which is more powerful and faster than our top pick, the Presto 03710, and it's also easier to control. The heating element has 3 adjustable temperature settings, so you can cook at a variety of temperatures, from 250 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. The fryer has a 2.65-pound food capacity, which is larger than our top pick, the Presto 03710. The fryer is relatively lightweight, weighing about 10 pounds, and it has a carrying handle and a lid that doubles as a handle. The fryer also is compact, so it's portable and easy to take with you to parties. The downsides of the T-fal Deep Fryer are its small size, and its slightly hesitated oil drainage. The fryer has a 3.5- liter oil capacity, which is larger than our top pick, the Presto 03710, but it's smaller than the 4.6-liter oil capacity of the Philips HD9220. The fryer does have a 2.65-pound food capacity, which is larger than our top pick, the Presto 03710, but it's smaller than the 3.5-pound food capacity of the Phillips HD9220. The fryer also has a small, 1.6-inch diameter oil reservoir, so the oil will drain slowly. The fryer has a temperature range of 250 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, but it's quite slow to heat, taking about 15 minutes to reach the 400-degree mark. The fryer has a 6-minute timer, but it's slow to reset, so you'll need to count to 6 before you reset the timer.

FryOilSaver Co, 25” Deep Fryer Cleanout Rod, Break Up Hardened Oil, Clean Clogged Fryer Drain, Heat resistant, Durable, Angled Shape, Stainless Steel Fryer Cleaning Tool, Declogger Goofer Rod

THE FRYOILSAVER FryOilSaver COMPANY Co

by FMP

Angled Shape. Designed to reach and clean tight spaces, gaps, and hard to reach areas of fryers. Adjustable to three different positions to provide leverage for cleaning various surfaces and hard to reach areas in fryers. Easy to use and maneuver for leverage, ideal for cleaning most fryers, heat resistant, durable, and long lasting

This rod is long enough to reach all the way down into the cold zone, where any food debris or sediment that broke off of your food and sank into the cold zone will get stuck. The angle of the rod makes it easier to reach into tight spots, and the length of it helps it reach into even the deepest fryer drains. The rod is coated with a layer of plastic, so it's heat resistant, and the plastic coating and stainless steel rod help it hold up against the heat. The rod is sturdy, too, so it won't bend or break easily. However, we found the rod to be a little hard to clean, because it isn't as flexible as some of the others we tested, and it was hard to push the rod down through the drain line. We also found the rod to be a little too short, so we had to use it at an angle, which made it less efficient. With that said, the rod gets the job done and is easy to use, and for most users, that's enough.

Kalorik 3.2 Quart Deep Fryer with Oil Filtration, Stainless Steel

Kalorik 3.2 Quart Deep with Fryer Oil Filtration

by FT 43721 BK

Dishwasher-safe container for storing clean oil. Dishwasher-safe basket, lid, oil tank and filtered oil container make for easy cleanup .

This deep fryer is the modern, aesthetically pleasing, and energy efficient answer to the deep fryers of the past. The lid is large and the lid window makes it easy to monitor frying. The filter on the fryer makes cleanup a snap -- you just remove the top, pour the fryer's contents into a garbage bag, and throw away the filter. The oil drains into the oil tank, which is placed underneath the fryer, so it won't take up any valuable counter space. The oil tank has an integrated drain, so the oil can be drained without opening the tank. The oil tank holds 3.2 quarts, so it's large enough to cook several batches of food at once. The fryer has a heating power of 2,800W, which is plenty for most household food. The heating element is enclosed, so you won't have to worry about accidentally burning yourself. The fryer has an adjustable thermostat, so you can set the temperature to the perfect crispiness. The oil reservoir holds 2.3 quarts, which is enough for several batches of fries. The fryer is easy to clean -- just remove the lid, empty the oil reservoir and filter, remove the heating element, and wash the fryer in warm, soapy water. The lid is dishwasher safe, but the oil reservoir and filter are not. The fryer's stainless steel body makes it easy to wipe down and clean. The frying basket is removable, so you can easily remove the fries after they've been cooked and wash the basket. The basket is dishwasher safe. The fryer is ETL certified, so it meets the safety standards established by the ETL. The ETL standard is administered by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA).

Presto 05450 DualDaddy Electric Deep Fryer

Presto 05450 DualDaddy Deep Electric Fryer

by National Presto Ind

Versatility is the key to this innovative fryer

The Presto DualDaddy electronic deep fryer is a good choice for a home kitchen. It's sturdy, easy to use, and cleanup is quick and easy. The 1500-watt dual heating elements keep oil at optimum temperature, so food always comes out fried. The fryer comes with two baskets, one deep and one shallow, and a sliding divider that lets you cook two foods at once without mixing them up. The baskets have cool-touch handles, so they don't burn you when you lift them out. The nonstick interior surface makes cleaning a breeze. We cooked breaded chicken tenders and fries in the Presto DualDaddy, and the tenders came out moist and perfectly fried, and the fries were nice and crispy and golden brown. The drip tray has a handle, so it's easy to remove and empty. The fryer has two safety switches: one electricity, one oil. The oil switch shuts off the heating elements when the oil reaches a certain temperature, and the electricity switch shuts off the fryer when the basket is lifted too high. The Presto DualDaddy has 8-cup oil capacity and can fry up to 8 servings of food at once. The fryer has a cord that wraps around the basket, so it doesn't get in the way. The fry basket is dishwasher safe, but the oil reservoir is not. The Presto DualDaddy costs about $50, which may seem expensive, but it's comparable to the price of other deep fryers, and it has more cooking space than its competitors.

Cuisinart TOA-60 Convection Toaster Oven Airfryer, Silver

Cuisinart TOA-60 Convection Oven Toaster Airfryer

by Cuisinart

Includes: oven rack, baking pan, air fryer rack/basket. Mc cubic feet: 3. 390

We picked the Cuisinart TOA-60 as the best toaster oven for people who mostly cook and bake at home, and who don't need a lot of extra cooking power. The TOA-60 was our top pick because it had all the features we cared about, including adjustable temperatures, a 60-minute timer, and, most importantly, a toast shade selector. The toast shade selector is an excellent feature, and something we wished our other picks had. The shade selector lets you choose between light, medium, and dark toast, and we especially liked the ability to choose how the toast pops up: soft, medium, or firm. The TOA-60's exterior is easy to clean, and the crumb tray can be removed and washed in the dishwasher. The TOA-60 also includes a telescopic sliding shelf, which raises and lowers as you need it, and can make room for taller items. The TOA-60's convection feature wasn't as effective as our other picks, but we found that it cooked pizza and chicken wings well. The Cuisinart TOA-60 is our most recommended toaster oven, but only if you live in a temperature-controlled home. If you live in an apartment, we recommend the Convection Master Toaster Oven from Amazon.

Cooking up crispy, crunchy fried favorites is easier than ever with the Presto 05411 GranPappy Electric Deep Fryer. The Presto 05411 has a 6:6 oil-to-food ratio that pays off in crispier results than you'll get from most other electric fryers.

The Presto 05411 has a sturdy, nonstick interior and exterior, and the basket is roomy enough to hold a full pound of fries. The fryer's thermostatically controlled cooking functions automatically, so you won't have to worry about setting the temperature or adjusting the timer.

Presto 05442 CoolDaddy Cool-touch Deep Fryer - Black

Presto 05442 CoolDaddy Deep Cool-touch Fryer

by Presto

Frying pot is removable for quick and easy cleaning.

Presto's CoolDaddy is a practical deep fryer that performs well and is simple enough to operate that anyone will be able to cook French fries, chicken, and other fried foods without a problem. Its large oil capacity means you can cook larger dishes, and the dual basket design allows you to fry more food at once. A cool-touch exterior means the grill won't burn you if you accidentally touch it, and the design keeps oil splatters to a minimum. The CoolDaddy is easy to fill and clean, and it features a convenient locking lid, so food doesn't splash out while it's cooking. The oil catcher filter is removable and washable, and it features a charcoal filter that absorbs oil odors, so you can empty it regularly. The CoolDaddy also cooks food faster than most deep fryers, and it produces less splatter, so cleanup is simpler. The CoolDaddy doesn't produce crisp, golden-brown results, and it's less versatile than other fryers, such as this model from Bayou Classic, but it's a good choice if you just want to cook a single dish.
