We used this fryer to make fresh made to order french fries. It did a pretty good job and the client was pleased with the outcome.
We were a little bit scared when we bought this fryer because we didnt know what to expect. We used it for our big events. Surprisingly it works as good as our big commercial fryers. Its super easy to setup and it heats up very quickly. Easy to clean and put away. We love it and cant wait to use it again.
The fryer is good for light duty work and light duty only. I wouldn't recommend this if you would be consistently using it throughout the day.
We've been using this fryer for years to fry any and everything that can fit. It maintains the temp pretty well if you don't crowd the fryer and reaches a temp of about 350F. It shows clearly the min/max fill line for oil and has a display to indicate when the fryer is hot and heating. It is tough to clean the heating unit sometimes, but if you are careful and have the right tools, very doable.
We bought our first fryer a little over 3 years ago. Since then, we purchased a second one earlier part of 2016. The first fryer was basically the same model, but they must had changed manufactures or something. The newest model baskets was not made as well and the heating elements were not interchangeable with the older model. We bought a second one because these do take some time to clean and we change oil and clean out weekly. Just worked better for us. The original fryer had either the power button or one of the lights go out on it, cant remember which, but I just bypassed to get it to continue to work. Last week it started to actually trip the reset breaker built under the control console. So I just placed an order for my 3rd one today. I could probably get it to work, but this thing is over 3 years old, I've made my money back no doubt. We turn our fryers on around 10:00 in the morning until 9p.m. 7 days a week. Cook chicken, fries, onion rings, corn dogs, mushrooms, fried pickles, tots all the good stuff there. The handles for the baskets do come out. You can try what ever you want to, it will come loose at some point, not too cool with hot grease! I installed two 2.5in metal joint plates with bolts and wing nuts for easy removal, one on the inside of handle and outside of basket. Don't have to worry about handles coming off anymore, unless you want them to. Recovery time does lag a little, but not that big of a deal, just have to keep eye on when cooking. Can kind of sucks if too busy, but we have managed. For the money, it does the job. I would like to upgrade, but as far as space and cost, mainly space...... I'm just not making the jump yet.
Great little fryer for the price. Recovery time is sufficient for small operation. Love that it's easy to break apart and clean. Would definitely recommend for small restaurant with low fryer volume.
Double fryer 120V, 3500W. I bought this one for home and it is very good fryer. If you keep up with clean fry oil it will fry some very good and tasty food.
Deep baskets allow for plenty of items to be cooked at once. Takes a while to heat up, but nothing major. I would consider buying 2 single tank fryers vs this dual one in case your electrical connections require flexibility. Overall great product.
Have a few of these. They heat up fairly quickly. I only use them for catering and for the price they are well worth it.
This Dual tank fryer is great we like the fact that it is countertop and electric, so we don't have to worry about any special installations, just hook it up anywhere and you are good to go! Great for outdoor events too.
Avantco dual tank electric counter top fryer good for busy places or restaurant & deli . Its time saver , easy to use comes with all the attachment using this item everyday .
We use this to cook 2-3 servings of chicken or fish at a time - one side is dedicated to fish/seafood. Have been using daily for about 6 weeks, it usually sits on low heat for about 5 or 6 hours a day, we raise the temp as needed for orders. (Fries are done in a full size fryer.) Have had absolutely no problems & it solved a major space issue.
We use this product every time we are open. The product is easy to clean and makes the load on our other fryers smaller. When we are in a pinch we use this fryer in order to stay caught up.
This fryer is perfect for the small kitchen looking for a way to easily expand menu. The 2 bays hold oil temp very well and is relatively easy to clean.
We bought two sets of this, and we had plug it in every day since 8 minths ago for 13 hours oer day, we has no problems so far, they heat up fast like about 10 to 15 minutes to 370 f, for the price its a great product.
This fryer is awsome I have enjoyed cooking with it. It is not made for large scale frying but is great for med to small size events and frying.
We do a good amount of off premise catering and this fryer offers us an inexpensive, portable way to fry foods to order. One of the challenges with this fryer for us has been the amount of power necessary to run both fryers. If you are using this fryer in-house, this will not be a problem since you will have control over this issue. But if you are relying on a power hook up at a residence, at a fair, etc, you may find yourself either not being able to turn on the unit or only being being able to use one of the two fryers at once. (you need 15 amps for each fryer)
This is a great product, but I would only recommend using this fryer in a low volume setting, they lose temperature when used in high volume.
I really like this item it is very nice I would recommend it to anyone completely satisfied with it I give it a 5 star
Solid product for the price. Better than anything you can get at a big box store but don't expect the same recovery time and build quality of one that costs 5x as much. Cooks fries and appetizers fine but for fish it's better to get a better built fryer that can recover faster and hits a true 375 degrees.
This fryer works great! I agree with many of the other comments though about the handles on the baskets. They do not stay in place. I found a fix though. If you bend out the bottoms of the handle and run the handle "around" the opening instead of through it, and they bend the bars back, it is a solid fix and they work great, the down side is you will not be able to fold them over at night, it is a permanent position for the handles. The unit heats up in about 20 minutes. WE do a full bag of fries (6 bags to a case type) in about 14 minutes it yields us about 12 orders. This is a good light use machine, I wouldn't want to use it 10 hours a day 7 days a week. AS always I was satisfied with the price paid and the quick shipping. It took care of our needs for a high school foot ball game on a Friday night and will do so for years to come I'm sure.
The temperature control works well and the dual tank provides adequate space and is helpful when frying foods separately such as egg rolls and desserts. The only drawback we have found is that the basket handle will sometimes fall out of place, so we try not to shake the basket. Other than the basket handle, this countertop fryer does the job.
It gets the job done. The thermostat leaves something to be desired as it is not accurate. I used an electronic temperature probe to test it
I was skeptical about the size for my small restaurant/catering business. However, it is the perfect fit!! Definitely worth every penny and is efficient even during busy periods. Planning to get another one for off-site events.
Good product. We use it (plus the single pot model) for items that take 3-4 minutes to fry. It stays on for about 4 hours/day and has been used for several months with no problems. Small restaurant with a limited fry menu.
This fryer is good for cooking fries. The capacity isn't huge but I still only use one side at slower times and start the other side once i gets really busy. If your volume is small this is excellent.
Fantastic Little Fryer. I use it all the time in my Diner for Fish and Shrimp. It has come in very handy as a backup and overflow fryer as well during busy times. Great buy for the Money !
Works as advertised in my opinion. I use this deep fryer for home use and the Dover Sole fish I fry comes out just like the restaurants I visit. Just make sure you're cooking at 365 F. I highly recommend this deep fryer.
When space is limited this is the perfect unit if you plan to still deep fry items. Easy to fill and use. Great for small spaces and a great item for appetizers.
Great small fryer for any home kitchen or any small restaurant that only has a few fried items on the menu. Also gotta love the price for such a sleek small fryer with a splash top.
Great fryer and the two cords is extremely helpful. We do a very small amount of frying in our kitchen so its convenients compared to a whole fryer.
