More versatile then originally expected

We chose this over a deep frier b/c we wanted to be able to take it outside (side burner / grill). This works great. First time use was Thanksgiving when we deep fried two turkey legs and a 2lb turkey breast (family of 4; plenty). It turned out so well that we now have a new family tradition. Excellent design for space saving & neat thermometer placement. We have also the pan itself for other purposes other than frying and it works great!
Pros: Durable, Quality, Easy to Store, Versatile
Cons: prefer electric thermometer

So Far So Good!!

I bought this item this week and tried it last night. My first impression is that I love it. I have a gas cooktop and I think that makes a HUGE difference. Pulling the handle back to snap into place is quite hard to do, but that's better than it flopping around. I just hope it doesn't break down after putting the handle back for storage and back into use. Time will tell. This item is extremely easy to clean and store. It heated up quick (I LOVE the feature of the thermometer in the handle) and the homemade fries were some of the best my husband has ever had. I also have the Breville Deep fryer and I love that too, but this stove top deep fryer is much more convenient. Highly recommend.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Clean, Easy to Store, Size
