This commercial-style machine will revolutionize the art of deep-frying at home. Prepare family-sized batches of crispy fried food using less oil than ever before. The Cool Plate heating element uses innovative technology to keep cooking oil at a uniform temperature. Foods cook to light, crispy perfection without absorbing fat. Capacity and efficiency are maximized while the amount of oil needed is minimized. The 2.2-pound capacity extra-large 'Load and Drain' fry basket prevents oil splatter while a latch allows for lifting and draining without opening the lid. A viewing window allows you to monitor cooking. The control dial adjusts cooking temperatures from 320 degrees to 375 degrees F. The 3.4-quart capacity removable oil pan insert has a pour spout for easy emptying and cleaning. The brushed stainless-steel housing remains cool to the touch. 1800 watts. Measures 10 1/2" H x 18 1/4" L x 9 1/2" W. Lid, pan & basket are dishwasher safe.
