We continue to be impressed with Breville appliances. Each one has a significant performance advantage to go along with the bulletproof quality and durability. They're not inexpensive, but we think they're worth every penny.
The Breville deep fryer focuses on the oil used in deep frying, in particular on using less oil and one keeping the oil cleaner and fresher. It does this with what Breville calls Cool Plate technology, essentially the placement of the flat plate heating element at the bottom of the cooking vessel. Placing the element lower creates a larger "fry zone", letting you cook with 25% less oil; for example you can cook a pound of French fries in 3 qts. of oil. In addition, the flate plate heating element heats the oil more gently and consistently than conventional tube heat elements. This means the oil never overheats past it's smoke point as can easily happen in other deep fryers. When oil gets too hot, it breaks down, creating changes in its flavor, smell and color. The Breville deep fryer will allow you to use the same oil many times over by avoiding these unpleasant changes.
The Breville deep fryer will hold up to 2.2 lbs. of food and has a variable temperature control for cooking temperatures between 320 and 375 degrees F. The "load and drain" fry basket prevents oil splatter when adding food, the auto shut-off feature adds peace of mind, and a permanent mesh filter vent helps keep things clean. Meausrements are 18.25" wide, 10.5" deep and 9.5" high. Like all Breville appliances, the deep fryer carries a one-year replacement warranty.
