I debated whether or not to renew my large deep fat fryer with thoughts of health but ordinary families do enjoy food sometimes cooked in a deep fat fryer. As there are 6 of us we needed a large one (very min. 4 litre oil capacity) so i hunted on line for one that was suitable and would fit on my worktop. I wanted it to look stylish, have abundant capacity for cooking for 6+ and be square rather than oblong and sticking out towards the cook, as many on sale now are these awkward shapes designs. This took a while to arrive but once here and used i confirm it is very good. Great design, very practical, 5 litre oil capacity. Arrives with three internal baskets, one large and two small. This does have a two pin plug socket but arrives with a converter plug so fine, no problem. Easily able to dismantle to handwash or put through dishwasher. Two dials; timer (choice not required) and temperature.
The best deep fat fryer i have ever purchased , big size for a family of 6 , heats up very quick and easy to clean too , love it and would thoroughly recommend this product.
Love this fryer – have owned it for 18 months and use it quite regularly, the 2 small baskets are really handy if you want to cook 2 different things at the same time.
We struggled to find a deep fat fryer big enough to do chips and onion rings for a family of four in one go, but this one is certainly big enough. The only surprise was that it came with a european 2 pin plug, but i just cut it off and fitted a british 3 pin. Very happy with it, and would highly recommend.
Very pleased with item purchase.
Very fast delivery 100% recommended.
Love the fact that there is 2 baskets good for making chips for 1 person.
Very pleased with the proficook pc-fr 1038 but disappointed in that there was no conversion two pin plug to three pin. I had one from a previous make.
I have had this for a few months now and it performs really well.
The fryer arrived quickly and well packaged. It provides all the functions i was looking for and for which one can pay a lot more. Having the three baskets available for use in the large 5 litre tank is a real bonus. The overall size is still compact enough to make it usable even on a relatively small sized worktop. The design works well with easy to use but effective controls, producing good frying results. Overall an excellent deep fat fryer. The two-pin plug is not an issue as it comes with a fused 2/3 pin adaptor, which i found straight forward to use. I did not give it the 5th star because the gauge of stainless steel construction could have been heavier and the insulation between the tank and the outer body is made of cardboard. For a fryer with a rrp of £150 one might expect a more substantial construction but only time will tell if these issues prove to be a weakness. Meanwhile, having used it for the first time, it heats up quickly and produces really great chips.
. But comes with a two pin plug not uk 3 plug. Not mentioned on description.
It’s ok but not as good as i thought it would be, i have actually purchased another more expensive one.
This fryer is excellent for family sized frying and easy to clean. This fryer comes with a european 2 pin plug. Now i know you would expect an appliance you buy to come with the correct plug but honestly, how long does it take to change a plug?.I done it a heap of times – easy. Here are the specifications for the Profi Cook ProfiCook PC-FR 1038 Stainless Steel Double Deep Fatfryer:
- Capacity: 5 litre
- Including 3 frying baskets
- 3000 Watt, Stainless steel
- Lid with viewing window
- Permanent odour and fumes filter
I rely like this as i can use the smaller baskets,i find this useful as we like small amounts i fined i am not wasting food.
Product arrived and is the size that we required. My only issue was the conversion plug did not work, so i had to go out and buy one before we could use it. Heated up nicely and was worth the money paid.
Took longer than expected to arrive but great purchase.
Have had this fryer a couple of months now and it is fab. It is great to use and to clean after. Having a slightly bigger vessel is great for cooking a family meal with 2 baskets allowing you to cook two items at the same time. It all comes apart beautifully so you can clean it after use. I have used mine about 7 times now and it cleans up like new every time. Makes beautiful chips, deep fried chicken and other things. I only use it once a week or so from a health point of view, but compared to crappy oven chips and the like it is just forgot to have a treat now and then.
Despite loving this fryer, it’s a 4 star review. This arrived with an eu plug, and had i ordered the identical one on amazon prime eu i would have paid much less. I paid more for uk plug, so i was a bit cross. The fryer itself is exceptional, heats up fast, i love the two smaller baskets, amazing when doing chips and onion rings together. The large basket is huge, we’re a family of six, and it is about time we found a fryer big enough to handle food for us all plus guests. It also seems much quicker than any ‘top brand’ fryer i have owned in the past. I bought the correct adapters, as a pack of five for under a tenner on amazon, needs to be schuko style eu plugs, as they’re fused properly, this fryer should last us years, it’s certainly of a brilliant quality.
Ideal when using both baskets.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Worth 4stars but not quite the full 5. NO – It is worth 5 – PERHAPS NO STARS AFTER ALL!!!
- I can’t fault the fryer.
- This fryer is excellent for family sized frying and easy to clean
Love this item great for family like the twin baskets as well as the one big basket fast delivery.
Excellent, large single basket easily accommodates large quantities of chips, the 2 smaller baskets are both reasonable in size.
No problem with supplied plug which was a concern noted on previous reviews.
Excellent fryer heats up quickly and stays at the temperature once the food is added into the fryer my old fryer always lost the temperature when the food was first added then you have to wait for it to get back up to the temperature. Food is not really soaked in fat when finished and it is very crispy. Communication was excellent email me every step and arrived in a few days of buying. I would highly recommend this product.
Over 1 years use now – no problems. Well made and fairly easy to clean. Comes apart nicely for cleaning.
It helped me during christmas and i love it. For bigger family i recommend this for you.
Apart from the plug burning and melting the first time i used it the fryer itself is very good had to get someone to replace the plug.
Great deal, spot on, you get what it says on the tin.
I chose this fryer because after looking everywhere i couldn’t find a large fryer that i could keep the lid on to stop splashes. I was a bit worried about the power rating but it works great in uk. It took 5 litres of oil to fill it but if you want a big fryer you can expect that. The choice of two smaller baskets would be good for most but i just wanted the one big basket for a family size portion of chips. To sum it up i cant fault it. After looking for weeks i am so so happy with the choice i made.
