Good light duty fryer. It can get overwhelmed if doing a lot back to back. Fries and tenders take longer than a more heavy duty fryer. If you have multiple fryers I would recommend this one. If this will be your only fryer and you do high volume get a more heavy duty one.

I love this deep fryer! It gets to temperature very fast also It has plenty of room and recovery time is fast as well. I only had them for a few months so let's see how they hold up!

These fryers are great little workhorses. We fry a tremendous amount of chicken and fish in our buffet restaurant and these Avantco fryers never miss a bit. They may not last quite as long as the more expensive fryers, but their very low price point makes replacing them much less painful. Highly recommended.

This fryer is great on the line and the temperature is very accurate to the dial setting. Most fryers lose their calibration. This one has lasted us 3 years. Great buy.

Great product, well build and manufactured. Huge baskets for frying pounds of wings and frys all at the same time. Thick stainless steel all around and reinforced in all the right areas. Will definately be buying another one of these.

This deep fryer is awesome for cooking Haddock especially the extra long pieces of fish. You can also get two large pieces in each basket. It is a very large unit and the handles are out quite far past the fryer so it may take awhile getting use to not running into them. Don't waste your money on a cover as we did. You spend most of your time cleaning the thing and eventually it ends up tucked away. Now the only time we use the cover is when we are doing a project and don't want anything to drop in it. I guess a towel over the top would do the same thing. I have only two complaints about this fryer. 1) Because it gets so hot we have to have the hood fan on the entire time the fryer is on otherwise our smoke detectors go off. 2) Approximately every two -three weeks we have to pull it outside and blow air through it to clean out all the black soot, if you don't do this the flame can't get through it gets plugged up and the flame starts to come back at you toward the door rather than the other way. Before we realized what was happening and how to fix it, we ended up melting the oil drain handle. So pros and cons to this product. if you purchase this I hope this will help.

Nice size and very easy to use. Pilot stays on so just turn it up when you come in the morning. Nice size for volume frying.

Works great. Doubles the volume of the deep fryer without doubling the space needed to put a deep fryer on the line at the restaurant.

We purchased this fryer for our church. Our congregation has about 650-700 members and we have a lot of functions that require the preparation of food for large groups. This fryer serves that purpose well. I strongly recommend this deep fryer when you have to prepare food for large groups and small groups as well because you can use just one of the baskets.
