The Bad

It has a magnetic detachable cord that unplugs with any small movement of the fryer. It is a safety feature but can be problematic sometimes. The fryer basket isn’t collapsible, which means it must be stored in a different place than the fryer, not inside it. The walls of the fryer aren’t too high so it is important not to over fill or there might be overflow when lowering the food into the oil. It can leave quite some odor lingering in the house for a while.

Overall Verdict

This deep fryer by Waring is a great little cooker that heats up in as little as five minutes. Once you remove the heating element and the insert, it is very easy to clean. Most of these fryer’s components are dishwasher safe. It is small enough for one or two people and compact enough to save up counter space. It does get hot really fast so it can fry any item in a flash. It can overflow if filled too much and if not careful while lowering the food so trying to do add too much oil will help. The size is great for a small family and works perfect in small apartments and dorms. Must be careful with the detachable magnetic cord but remembering that it is a safety feature, after all.
