T-Fal FR7008002 Ultimate EZ Clean Pro Deep Fryer

Pros
  • Built-in filtration
  • Large capacity
  • Most parts are dishwasher-safe
Cons
  • Requires a lot of oil
  • Drainage system may leak

Bottom line

The T-fal Ultimate EZ Clean Pro-Fryer is a large-capacity deep fryer with a built-in filtration and drainage system. It's ideal for families that require more than two servings and is easy to clean with dishwasher-safe parts. Some owners report leaks due to a design flaw in the drainage system, but this is a non-issue if you don't fill it to maximum capacity. There are a few isolated complaints of defective units.

Performance

Heats up quickly, cooks thoroughly. The T-fal Ultimate EZ Clean Pro-Fryer has a large capacity of more than 2 pounds, making it a great choice for those who need to fry more than one or two servings at a time. It does require about 32 ounces of oil, however, which some owners complain about at Amazon.com and Kohls.com. This 1,700-watt deep fryer heats up quickly and produces crisp, thoroughly cooked foods, users say.

Ease of use

Built-in filtration, easy cleanup. With the T-fal's built-in oil filtration and drainage system, it's possible to use the same oil for more than one frying session with the T-fal Ultimate EZ Clean Pro-Fryer. Its heating element must be hand-washed, but the removable bowl and most other parts are dishwasher-safe. That said, the fryer takes up quite a bit of space in a standard-size dishwasher, which some owners find inconvenient. The temperature adjustment knob has labeled settings, making it simple to use.

Features

Locking lid, easy-to-grab handles. The T-fal Ultimate EZ Clean Pro-Fryer has a sealed, locking lid for safety and splatter prevention, a large viewing window for monitoring foods as they cook, and a permanent odor filter that never needs replacing. However, some users posting feedback at Amazon.com say the filter doesn't really reduce the smoke or odor much, and recommend that the fryer be used in a well-ventilated area. The T-fal has a convenient handle on each side so it can be easily relocated under a hood vent.

Durability

Leaking problems due to design flaw. Reviewers at Amazon.com, Walmart.com and Kohls.com say the T-fal Ultimate EZ Clean Pro-Fryer has useful features that make it worth the price, although a few say it stops working after four or five uses. The fryer is backed by a one-year warranty, but is prone to leaks due to an oil reservoir that's smaller than the main fryer bucket. Some users report this is only a problem if the fryer is overfilled above the max line.
