purchased this for my kitchen last year. have had no issues with it to date. the 50 lb capacity is perfect for continuous use and its fairly easy to clean. cant really find any faults with this product. gets the job done. worth spending a little extra for avantco over some of the cheaper options

Best deal out there. Easy to hook up and baskets were included. Easier to clean than the royal fryer I have, same BTUS but has faster recovery time.

Does its job of frying. I would not recommend if you have a lot of customers. I would recommend a different brand for high volume.

No problems. Great for its price, and works well it a mid-volume restaurant, when we need a bit more compacity and will likely order another.

Unit arrived in less than 48 hours. Driver brought it all the way into my store (all though I believe he went above and beyond what was required of him) Installed in 5 minutes, and looking good. It heats up in less time that the old pitco that it replaced, seen here with her surviving twin (ad me’ah v’’Esrim). So far very happy. Hint: half the bolts/nuts for the feeet come in a bag, and half already attached.

We are a lower volume restaurant and the only fried items we have are fries and sweet potato fries. So this is perfect for us. It’s small so if we add to the fried menu, we’ll have to get another one.

We purchased (3) Avantco FF400 Fryers for our new restaurant and am pleased with the product construction. Avancto offers a cheaper price point than some of the other manufacturers with comparable quality.

Great fryer. This is perfect for getting the most bang for your buck. It doesn't take up a ton of room, but can still do a ton of work.

Bought this fryer back in April and I have no complaints. This fryer keeps up with the high demand we put on it. I clean and change the oil every one to two weeks. Heats up fast, easy to hook up. If business keeps going the way it is I will definitely be getting another one.

We bought 2 of these fryers, they heat up quickly and maintain temperature well. Turn temp down between lunch and dinner if you have a down time to save on propane.

Run of the mill fryer, works great if maintained well. If you have a little bit extra to spend I would go a step up, but if in a crunch will get the job done.

We purchased this seven months ago. The unit works as advertised. We make fresh cut French fries that are 3/8" cut. They take approximately five minutes to cook. We also make our own hand-breaded chicken fried steak. They take approximately four minutes to cook. I feel this is an excellent fryer for the price. I would recommend purchasing this brush http://www.webstaurantstore.com/carlisle-4011100-23-fryer-brush-with-l-tip-teflon-174-bristles/27140111.html because it is impossible to clean between the tubes without it.

Here it is, the heavy-duty, one stop shop for all things frying related. Small enough to tuck away in a corner of the kitchen, but large enough to get he job done and fry up some french fries. Yum!!

Posted on 1/21/2016

Great price for a great fryer. Works as well or better than our higher priced fryer. Shop used equipment and auctions, only to find overpriced, DIRTY junk.

We bought 2 of these fryers and are very satisfied with them. Fast shipping and set up was a breeze. Compared to other, higher priced models these were worth it. We would buy Advantco models for any other needs as well.
