3 out of 5 eggsSeems to work okay.

Pros: Works well, if not over loaded, and the owners manual warns of this. With two baskets you can fry chicken and French fries at the same time. Optional single basket can be purchased which will allow more of one item to be fried. All parts fit folded inside unit for storage. Magnetic power cord attachment a nice safety feature. Heater/control unit and pot can be removed for cleaning. Cooking pot holds over 1 gal oil when at full level.

Cons: Stainless base unit and enamelled cook pot have sharp edges...take care when cleaning.

Heater and temp sensor unit are well assembled with lots of clamps and such, and can be fun cleaning.

While unit comes with a cover, it is probably never used as most foods will emit water vapour and the owners manual warns not to use cover when frying high moisture content foods...which is most everything.

As mentioned, cook pot, when filled with oil, has more than a gallon of oil. You must let oil cool and siphon oil from pot prior to removal, as weight otherwise makes it nearly impossible to remove pot for cleaning, and as stated, watch sharp edges.

Also, I feel that the 1800 watt unit struggles to bring over 1 gal oil up to temperature and maintain it when "cold or room temp" foods are added. Follow manual and do not over load with foods.

Other Thoughts: I received this as a gift. It works, does what it is advertised to do, but I am not sure I would buy one to replace a cast iron pot on a stove burner.

I can see where you may want the optional single basket for single food frying as two baskets waste precious frying area when frying single foods.

You would probably not want to try to fry foods to feed more than 3-4 people with this, otherwise you would be eating in shifts.
