    First time I used the All-Clad deep fryer it work great. The food was fantastic. Great taste and not greasy.I can’t wait to use it again.The only small problem was storage. Some of the oil leaked out of the storage tray. Which I think was my fault. The Fryer was not level when I put it in the pantry. Corrected the problem and now just wait and see.

    Works great! Best in class,

    This unit is one of the best fryers, no splatter outside. The oil basin with a filter makes cleanup a breeze. This is a great gift! Totally dishwasher safe.

    Happy with purchase

    After reading multiple reviews and doing a little research, I decided to order this deep fryer. Very pleased with purchase and would order again. Pros: Easy to use. Consistent temperature. Cons: Expensive. Takes up a lot of counter space and requires a lot of oil.

    Nice size works great.

    Would have given 5 stars if the timer was readable. With kitchen lights on its nearly impossible to read or see the timer. Should be much brighter and blue or orange background. Otherwise happy with the fry basket size and overall heating performance. Also heat dial should not go out of range of temperature numbers displayed?!?

    Nice BUT the element is undersized.

    Nice features, easy to clean. Takes up quite a bit of counter space but I expected that. The biggest negative however is that the element can’t maintain the temperature of the oil. If I fry 4 chicken wing pieces it’s only a couple minutes before the oil is back to the set temp. But who fries 4 wing pieces when the basket can easily hold twice that? If I fry 8 wing pieces it’s a full 8 minutes before the oil is back to temp. All the other features are quite nice, unfortunately, the element is too low on wattage. Oh, and if you fry at 400 degrees or higher, find another fryer!!! This one only goes to 385.

    Product Review

    The All Clad Easy Clean product is actually a design duplicate of the T-Fal easy clean fryer. The pluses and minuses are listed below:Pluses1. Better and prettier material the the T-fal2, Exactly the same features as T-Fal, (which I found to be by far the best residential unit on the market (I’ve had several).3. Cooks accurately4. Oil actually cleans better than the T-Fal ( I filter after each use)Minuses1. Over 2X the price of the T-Fal2, Unfortunately, the product has a fatal fault. The oil bin is engineered improperly…When you attempt to pour the oil back into the fryer, the top seal does not hold resulting in a nasty oil spill. The T-Fal holds fine. (I returned the oil bin and they sent a new entire unit back. The oil bin has the same problem.)I like the unit cosmetically enough and the basic performance is fine, so I am going to make an attempt to correct the seal problem.3. The T-Fal lasted about 5 years and while not as pretty, worked perfectly fine, so would recommend the T-Fal over the All Clad just because of the oil bin fault (and if it matters, the price)

    Could have been great

    I wanted this to be the fryer I was going to love, but to many negatives. The temperature select knob is horrible, the arrow does not accurately select anything, there are huge amounts of ply between clicks and the only way to tell what temperature you’re on is to use an aftermarket thermometer. I’ve read reviews by others that certain parts like the plastic lid for the oil tank are not available for purchase or warranty replacement. I confirmed this by calling All-Clad support this morning and the agent seemed cryptic or clueless about parts and told me they have a different website and to submit a ticket for instructions on how to send in for repair. I always suggest to anyone to call support for any product they’re considering and check out the experience before committing to any product, luckily mine is only 24 hours old so I can easily return through Amazon. I will,not many of the top rated competitors to All-Clad for deep fryers have spare parts and items readily available on their website. This is a great unit if your able to select the actual temperature you want and the oil drain and storage never fails, but from what I’ve seen, this is not a product that will last a long time.

    Excellent product! Great time, temp control, oil drain and storage and cleaning.

    I bought this for my husband as a gift. He picked it. 😁 This one is so easy to use and looks very nice on the countertop.The timer and temp control have garnered a nice improvement in the quality of the end food product. It has a drain feature that filters and drains the oil into a closed container once it is cooled. When you need to use it again it is a mess free pour back into the fryer tub.You can put the top, basket and dryer tub in the dishwasher! I usually hand wash them, but I did try it in the dishwasher and there was zero negative impact!

    Completely Unworthy of the All-Clad name

    I’ve owned, and love, a lot of All-Clad items, including a shockingly large number of the stainless pots and pans and other cookware items, as well as other small appliances (griddle, slow cooker, waffle iron) which I’d heartily recommend, but not this one.While this fryer looks nice, it doesn’t actually feel at all well made or sturdy. The metal is shiny, but very lightweight, and only the handles feel solid. The timer is absolutely useless—you can’t see it when the unit is working, as the angle is awful and the escaping steam obscures all views.The cord was so short as to be ridiculous. I had to have the fryer within 6 inches of an outlet to plug it in, and the slightest bump will dislodge the magnetic connector, which just never felt secure.The temperature control is haphazard, as with the temp set at 360, an independent oil thermometer registered the actual oil temp anywhere from 310-365 BEFORE any food was put in, which is quite a range. The basket’s supposed support bracket; for draining or filling outside the hot oil, is woefully tiny and insecure, and you can not depend on it to hold even the empty basket. It’s actually dangerous, as splatters from it falling could seriously hurt someone.Speaking of the basket, it’s very small; allowing for only three fairly small pieces of chicken, for example, per batch, meaning dinner is going to take a looong time. Even longer because one of the primary benefits of a dedicated deep fryer is supposed to be not having to turn the food (hence the “deep” part), unlike pan frying. But even with oil at the “max” line, the top of my not-that-large chicken pieces (thighs, drumsticks) were outside the oil, and had to be turned mid-fry.Lastly, the supposed benefit of being able to filter and drain the oil into the included container for easier disposal or even possible reuse, was a complete and total failure. The oil would not drain, even with the correct setting, and on later inspection I could see the latch between the container and fryer itself wasn’t moving—of course not something you can fix with a unit full of hot, or even just warm, oil. The frying reservoir is removable, so I just took it out to the garbage for disposal, but what a waste of space and engineering.Just not at all well made or thought out. Completely Unworthy of the All-Clad name.

    False Description on Max Temperature!

    Overall this is a decent fryer, and I like the oil storage and ease of use.However, the description is very misleading. I was concerned about an issue with my unit because I was testing the oil temp after letting it heat up, and it wasn’t reaching the max temperature. The oil temperature only seemed to reach about 350 (using a separate thermometer to test) and not the stated 385 degrees.So I wrote to All-Clad support, and this was their exact response:”The fryer is an immersion fryer. The element reaches 374, but the oil will only reach about 340-350. This is normal for our unit.”So this is confirmed by their support, and this doesn’t match the description. This company recently settled a $4 million settlement for false advertising, and it seems they didn’t learn their lesson.As for the unit’s build quality and functionality, I’d give it 5 stars. If they were accurate in their description, I wouldn’t be complaining. I wanted a higher temp fryer, and as it turns out, this is on par with most fryers of this style regarding temperature. I haven’t decided to return it, but I may sell it for one that reaches 400 degrees down the road.

    LOVE this fryer!!!

    I bought a Kalorick fryer with the filtration unit a few years ago and the filter pan did not hold the MAX oil capacity!!! I used first time and the oil ran all over my counter!!! THAT was the first thing that pissed me off… second was the lever that controlled the fry/filter option broke same time!!! This unit is well made, stainless steel with only a few plastic parts… cleans super easy… basket cleans easier as well.. most units the corners of the baskets are tightly woven and you cannot get them clean…. Heats up super fast and product comes out great!!! I wish they made a little larger unit but this works great for the three of us….

    Mediocre. Does not maintain temperature level

    First, the fryer hit the desired temperature when preheating.As soon as I add the potatoes the temperature drops 30-40° and does not go back up to 370° on the second fry before the fries need to come out.Soggy fries.Also, it may hold 3.5 liters oil but at most half of that is in the area of the basket where you can cook.Oil filtration is good.

    As good as it’s rated…

    I bought this as it was on the higher price range of highly rated deep fryers. I’m glad I bought it. I think it had the highest consumer reports rating and and was at the top of most any reviews of deep fryers, but it was more expensive. I have owned a “medium” priced oil fryer and it wasn’t nearly as well made, nor as easy clean. The oil gets hotter much more quickly and maintains the temperature and the filtering process is effortless. I find this deep fryer much easier to clean and to recycle the oil for multiple uses. It’s not cheap, but it’s a home run for me.

    Impractical and Costly in Many Ways

    A few things you should consider before buying this fryer:1. What is the point of a 3.5-quart frying bowl if the maximum capacity of oil you can use is quite low? I tried to make chicken taquitos, and, as you can see from the photo, they were not fully submerged in the oil. I filled the bowl up to the recommended Max line. So I would call this a “shallow” fryer, not a deep fryer. This brings me to my next point…2. To come to the Max line, I had to fill the bowl with 10 cups of oil. You will need to buy Costco-sized jugs of cheap Canola oil. If like me, you’re thinking you’re going to use good quality, high-heat oil like grapeseed oil, you will need two full 34 fl. oz. bottles and then some. That’s $25 of oil! Which is still not enough for true “deep” frying, as I mentioned in point 1. For example, I will have to fill the frying bowl with a lot more oil if I want to make samosas. Then, after you are done frying, you will need to scoop out most of the oil with a cup and store it in a bottle because the storage container will not store it all. Forget about using fat solids, like coconut oil, because you want that nutty flavor in your fried food. You will need vats of that stuff!3. The glass window in the lid fogs up! You can’t see the food in the bowl and just see the reflection of your kitchen cabinets (see photo). This means you have to lift the lid to check on your food. Be safe doing so.4. This fryer is too large for apartment-size kitchen cabinets and takes up a lot of space.Otherwise, yes, it’s easy to set up, easy to clean, and overall a very safe fryer but highly impractical and costly in other ways.

    Nicer tfal

    This a very useful fryer. I found that an oil thermometer really helps. I got the tempdialed in and leave it there. It gets right up to that temp each time.This is a nicer finished t fal product. I bought into the all clad style so my kitchen is a bit matchy matchy. I also like the finish. Made in china not USA.As a side note I previously used pans and did not know the heating element comes out. Then there is a drain dish. This makes for much easier cleaning that I expected. Also it reats up pretty quick.

    All Clad quality, good temp control, easier to clean than Waring fryer BUT oil tank issues….

    12/23 update – I’ve given up on using the tiny oil screen from the deep fryer pan into the catch basin. The filter screen is tiny, it plugs frequently and it’s slow to drain.When the oil cools, I use a funnel and a strainer to clean the oil and pour it back into the original oil jug. It’s a lot faster and cleans the oil better. This fryer works really well but the oil filtration system is lame.Original 12/2020 review -This is a nice fryer and it’s a LOT like the less glitzy T-Fal EZ Clean deep fryer which is between $70 and $100 cheaper than this All Clad model. I like All Clad in general but as near as I can tell, this product was discontinued by All Clad exactly when I purchased it in early October, 2020 but it still pops up as available on Amazon. It’s not on the All Clad website. Most other online sites also have variable stock.Pro:-Easier to clean than my old Waring 5 quart fryer which was a pain in the butt to maintain, particularly the heating element.-Holds 3.5 quart of oil which is decent food capacity for 2-3 people. Do NOT overfill! Bad outcomes occur with overfilling!-Breakaway power cord – big safety improvement over the hard wired 12 gauge wire/plug on my old Waring that a guest of mine caught their hand on and pulled the Waring off the counter 2 years ago. Thankfully the oil had cooled off but it was a HUGE mess. One oil spill disaster hint – cat litter is GREAT for absorbing any oil!!!-The magnetic power plug has a light hold and it comes loose easily but at least you’re not cleaning up a gallon+ of oil and no one gets hurt.-Basket has a “squeeze and release” handle. My old Waring basket handle was bolted on and it was a pain to remove.-An electronic count down timer that actually sort of works and buzzes when done. My Waring had a an analog knob with a kids bicycle bell “ding” when it was done. It’s not great but it’s better.-Semi-sealed display panel that allows for easy cleanup. The dial switch for the oil temp is not sealed-Heats quickly (68 degrees to 385 degrees in 13 minutes) and recovers faster than my 5 quart Waring fryerCon:-You have to be very careful when emptying the oil from the “clean oil tank” back into the fryer. Be SURE to oil is cool! It’s a 2 piece holding tank and it wants to come apart when you pour the oil back into the fryer and the drain hole is small – a little over an inch in diameter and the weight of the oil can cause the top and bottom of the holding tank to separate at the wrong time. Be careful!-Lower oil capacity compared to the Waring means smaller batches and extended cooking time. This is NOT a commercial fryer – it’s a small, nice quality household fryer for 2-3 people or 2 hours of cooking for a crowd of 8+ (pre-COVID days!)-As I mentioned, Do NOT overfill the oil because it will leak out on your counter/table when you transfer the oil to the holding tank. Even an ounce above capacity will spill over. The oil tank is marked for “max fill” – go to the bottom of that line and you’ll be fine.As I mentioned in my opening paragraph, there is something odd going one with this fryer relative to availability and registration with All Clad because on their website, this device does NOT exist!. I tried to register the online warranty but the All-Clad website does not recognize any model number for the fryer. A search of the All Clad website for this device came up empty as of 10/20. It was maddening trying to register for the All Clad warranty online. I finally mailed in the hard copy warranty. Not sure if that will work.The photos I included are of the oil drain screen and the “Min/Max” oil fill lines. The problem with the drain screen is that it’s difficult/impossible to take apart to clean and fine materials like flour from fried chicken can plug up the outlet. The flour is so fine it gets through the screen. As you can see in the photo of the drain, despite cleaning with Dawn dish soap and an industrial degreaser, there is still junk under the screen.Hope this hands on review helps you make the proper choice for your situation – cheers!

    Proper deep fryer

    This fryer heats up like a deep fryer should. Food doesn’t soak up a lot of oil. The size works well for a family meal also, one maybe two batches of cooking. I highly recommend this.

    Makes frying cleaner and safer

    I got this as frying was always so messy. This takes them mess almost completely out of the equation. The lid seals well but has a vent for steam. The filtration works very well and allows me to use the oil over and over. I wish the cord were a little longer but otherwise I think it’s great!

    GREAT but not so much

    1) The chicken we made was out of this world fantastic.2) During the cleanup, we discovered the problem. The cooled-off oil would not drain as it was supposed it.3) I tried to call All-Clad and waited on hold for 38 minutes, the call disconnectedI returned the fryer and asked for a replacement. Hopefully a better experience next time.

    Purchased as a gift

    Kid off to school, no BBQ, so this has to do, he likes it a lot. Said it is pretty accurate for cook to temp on most items. A couple of things not so much but for the most part it does well. Likes that it is easy to clean. He is really happy with the gift, and it saves him from having to use a public charcoal iron box like you see at parks.

    With practice and planning, frying becomes an endurable, almost pleasant, task

    All-Clad claims this deep fryer is easy to clean. Well….kinda’: Most parts can go into the dish washer. Some can go immediately into the dish washer. The fry “bowl” (as they call it) will drain the oil, but you have to get in there with a big handful of paper towels and dredge out the sloughed-off breading/coating before putting it in the dish washer. It is a messy business.Worse than this: The control panel/motor/heating coils are all connected and the cumbersome piece cannot go into the dish washer. It all has to be wiped by hand. You will notice, please, that All-Clad dares not show us a picture of that large cumbersome piece on this product page. I’ll tell you why: If you saw–not just imagined in your mind’s eye–this obnoxious piece that is totally unbalanced and goes in several different directions–you’d never buy it! Bottom line: This piece is not easy to clean. It is very hard to clean, and it’s impossible to totally remove the grease spatters from the control/motor box.But the other pieces are efficient enough, and they remove easily, and they do not weigh a lot, so they do clean up easily in the dish washer. Although, if you want the fryer parts to remain shiny and un-scratched, you will probably want to give them their own, separate, trip through the washer. Then again, usually, I’ve not had to wash the very large outside shell of the fryer, so the other pieces might have been able to fit in with the dishes.I like: The innovative storage container for the drained oil. One does not have to handle the oil when it is hot. The container stays attached to the outer shell until you want to use the fryer again. Then the container slides out like a drawer. Unscrew the plug, angle/tip the container to pour the oil back into the fry box.I really like: The oil heats up quickly and pretty much stays at temp. I never had a fryer before, so I was pleasantly surprised just how fast the oil comes to temperature. And the system is very good at keeping the oil at your preferred temperature.The instruction booklet sucks: Thank goodness the controls are simple, so you can ignore the confusion that the booklet forces upon you. There are all kinds of contradictions. I eventually gave up on the booklet and just used my common sense. The simple chart of temperature settings are pretty much worthless.My advice: Give this machine a few runs before using with guests in the house. See where its short-comings are and make a plan how to get the pieces assembled and disassembled and into the dish washer or sink. For instance, I now have my fryer on a stainless steel (below counter height) rolling cart–stored out in the garage. (The cart has locking wheels, which is a necessity.) I wheel it out the door, (flat path with no ups/downs), to a concrete patio and I fry out there, where the smell can dissipate. I sit with drink in hand, a pair of tongs and a platter, and watch the scenery and have a pleasant time of it. When done frying, I wheel it all back in, (flat, smooth concrete all the way; pebbled surfaces, lots of cracks, etc. will have your oil going everywhere…..) The next day, I go out at my convenience and start moving the parts to my kitchen–my oil is already drained into its drawer compartment.

    Nice design, poor power cord

    The EJ814051 is a really nice deep fryer except for the power cord. To start, its just too short. This is the only appliance I’ve ever had that would not reach the plug on our kitchen island, even with the unit dangerously close to the edge. The fryer side of the AC cord is a magnetic contact. This is a good safety feature to have. However, because of the way they wired the cord to this contact the weight of the cord causes the plug to pop. So unless the AC plug is only a couple of inches from the unit and you can prop up the cord, you will probably have to use an extension cord.Beyond that, the unit is solid and easy to use. The drain & filter feature is convenient. I paid a bit more for this unit as it appeared well made. This is true except for the power cord issue mentioned above. I doubt I would buy it again knowing what I know now.

    Smaller than implied in picture, defective auto sensing function

    Purchased this grill for my large family. Despite what the pictures show, it only fits three standard burger patties at once… the advertising picture must be showing slider patties. (My old George Foreman XL easily fits 5 full size patties).I tried to cook the patties in batches, but the autosense function glitches out after the first batch. If you want to cook more than one batch, you have unplug the machine and let it completely cool down or it will shut off within seconds of starting the second batch and you can’t override the auto sense function to make it stay on.Regardless, the weight of the top plate squeezes out every bit of fat and you’re left with a very dry burger.Customer service is very poor, they admit that it can only do one batch at a time but say I just need to let it cool down between batches.

    Good Quality

    This deep fryer has a nice capacity and can easily handle eight medium sized pieces of chicken. With the oil drain resevoir it it easy to filter and store the oil, then dissamble the fryer and pop it into the dishwasher for an easy, thorough cleaning.

    Oil Filtration Is Great

    There are two things that keep this from a five star.1. The timer needs some work. First it should be backlit, we use this outside when we cook, and at night the LCD used for the timer function is very hard to read. It also would be nice if it had a start stop function.2. The oil storage container is not completely sealed, if you carry it around full of oil as it sloshes back and forth you will get just a small amount of spillage.

    Larger than I expected

    My first use was Korean fried chicken and it came out beautifully. I have to say, as a personal chef I found it to be a wonderful item, but if you’re a novice at frying, or have limited counter space this might not be the best choice. It truly cooked beautifully.The clean up was better than any deep fryer I have ever owned, and there were many. However, I cleaned it by hand which was very simple and took about five to ten minutes. Others said cleaning was a messy challenge and one reason there would be so much batter at the bottom is because the oil is not hot enough. BTW, I had almost no batter at the bottom, just a few crumbs. Over heating the oil by about 20º initially will help resolve that because the batter will crisp quickly and adhere to whatever you’re frying: shirimp, chicken, onion rings… the reduce the heat to the desired temperature. Also, double frying always works best for a crisp finish.As a minimalist the size was the only down side, but I can make it work.

    Leaks badly.

    The oil box under the fryer, which stores the filtered oil whilst the other parts can be cleaned, is intended to be slid out and then un-stoppered in order to pour the oil back into the fryer for re-use. Unfortunately, this resevoir can be better described as a tray with an un-sealed lid: if it is tilted slightly from the horizontal, the lid allows copious leakage of oil. On my first attempt to remove the “box” when full, half a gallon of oil poured out from under the fryer, all over my kitchen counter and down behind the cooker and cupboards: it took me over two hours to clean up. Not “EZ clean” at all, and an absolutely incompotent design.

    Well Made

    Purchased this after seeing our son’s model. All stainless, top and basket can go in dishwasher, body easy to clean. Works wonderfully and fries great. The oil filter is a big plus. We don’t have to throw out oil each time we use it. It would have been nice to have the temperature control in the front of the unit; you have to be careful not to burn yourself if you need to adjust it while using it. Overall, a great kitchen appliance.

    Beware the oil container

    It’s generally a well made unit. It looks great and matches my All Clad cookware. BUT, the oil container has a lid that is loose fitting. I found out how loose, the hard way. There is a small plug that screws into the container on one corner. This is where you pour the oil back into the unit for cooking. The oil container looks like a piece of Tupperware with a lid that covers the entire top surface. After the first use and letting the oil drain into it, I went to pour the oil back into the cooking pan. The lid quickly popped off and oil spilled all over the counter and onto the floor of my kitchen. I spent the next 2 hours cleaning that up and trying to get my kitchen floor to not be slippery. What a mess! What a pain in the rear! So, buy this, enjoy it, but be careful not to make the same mistake. Pour the oil out slowly and hold the lid down.

    Fryer temp. Display Inoperative. Returned for replacement.

    Got mine yesterday. Thermostat display appears to be inoperable, with a blank screen after power turned on, even when turning the temp. knob, nothing is displayed. Reset fryer a couple times pressing the tiny dot-sized button on the back of the controller. Good news however, Amazon is sending new All-Clad fryer tomorrow. Hoping better performance.

    Love it

    Didn’t buy this to make the typical french frys or potato chip – I wanted to make tempura, mee krob, karaage, etc – Asian deep fried food. And it doesn’t disappoint. Temps are within 10 degrees of what you set the knob to, oil heats up from room temp to max in about 15 minutes, and the unit maintains the temperature very well. The oil drain is SUPER convenient, but like others have said, it WILL pop off if you aren’t careful, so use both hands and make sure it stays SHUT while pouring. Also, like others have said, DO NOT OVERFILL BEYOND THE MAX LINE. The danger isn’t overflow while frying, it’s overflow while draining – the oil storage bin will absolutely not hold more, so you WILL overflow while draining if you fill the unit above the max line for frying.Lastly, I love that almost everything is dishwasher safe, makes cleanup a total breeze. For the control unit that’s not dishwasher or sink safe, just use a clorox wipe to clean off the oil around the heating units, couldn’t be any easier.Finally, I love this unit. Looking forward to many years of happy frying

    Nice fryer but messy. Oil recovery tray’s cover does not snap on and when you pour the oil back it comes out from all sides so you have to pour it without the cover.

    Is it worth the price I paid? Yes, yes, and more yes. Looks wonderful, sturdy, nothing cheap about it. Perhaps the weakest portion of this purchase is a limited receipt booklet. However, that is part of the fun searching out different receipts to place in it. Finally found a way to make crunchy fries and chicken. The timer is a bit tricky for me at first but the more I use it the easier and better foods taste. Try it. You will be happy you paid the little extra for the quality

    Same product (and flaws) as the t-fal

    This is the same product as the t-fal with a shiny exterior. Reviewers claiming that it performs differently or better, or has higher quality design or internal components, are at best deceiving themselves and are likely trying to deceive you.I bought this unit after being disappointed by the temperatures the t-fal could reach. Unfortunately, contrary to the claims made by another reviewer, this has the exact same thermocouple held in the exact same place by the exact same bracket; do not expect it to behave significantly differently with respect to oil temperature. Surface oil temperature for both units is significantly colder than advertised, with the difference hitting 30 degrees at the upper range as measured with multiple calibrated probes.Similarly, another reviewer claimed that the basket was made of superior materials. This is not true. They are exactly the same.The good news is that since they share the same basic design they share the same virtues as well as flaws. The oil filtration works well, cleanup is easy, and washing the units is straightforward. If it were not for the temperature issues I would happily pay either price for these units.Unfortunately at the temperatures they reach neither of these machines are worth owning. But if you are going to buy one, save yourself the $60-$100 and buy the t-fal.

    Easy to Use – Works Great

    This deep fryer was so easy to use. I LOVE the fact that it has a cover that can be used to keep the grease from splattering all over the place. We used it to fry chicken for a Chinese dish we were making and it worked perfectly. It was so much easier to keep a consistent temperature than using a pot on our electric stove. Clean up was accomplished easily once the oil was drained into the container underneath the fryer. The oil is also filtered while being drained. It is then closed up so there is no oil smell. The inside of the unit was then easy to take out and clean. I can’t speak to longevity since we have only used it once so far.

    Lives up to expectations!

    This has a large basket. We deep fry fresh spring rolls which are dense. The former deep fryer struggled to keep the heat. This works well. I like the lid and is easy to clean. The heating element is directly in the oil and I thought this would be difficult to keep clean but it’s pretty easy.

    Best fryer ever, clean up is so easy!

    My son is absolutely addicted to french fries, and since he’s a picky eater and that’s just about all he’ll reliably eat I end up cooking them a few times a week at least. This fryer does a pretty great job on them and can cook two servings of fries in its basket, although more than that would probably be overcrowding and they wouldn’t cook as well. It heats up reasonably quickly (far more quickly than a dutch oven on a stove top) and even when I add very cold fries it still either maintains its temperature or very quickly returns to temperature. However, by FAR the best feature of this fryer is how easy it is to clean up. You just turn the lever to “automatic oil filtration” and then walk away, and the oil is filtered and stored for you. The filtration is pretty good; I’ll easily get a couple of weeks worth of regular frying out of a single batch of oil although it depends on what I fry, since some things get the oil a lot dirtier than others. Once it’s drained, literally everything except the heating element can get wiped down and put in the dishwasher. This fryer could not possibly be any easier to clean up.There are only a few negative things about this fryer, none of which are really a big deal. The biggest complaint I have is that the timer isn’t great. It works fine, but as far as I can tell you can’t cancel it or change it once it’s set, so if you’re using it then hopefully you set the correct time the first time or you’ll have to wait for it to go off before you can change it (if there’s a way to do that then I haven’t found it yet). Also, the magnetic plug does tend to fall out rather easily if it’s jostled at all but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. As I mentioned, I wish that the overall temperature range was greater as it tops out at around 385 degrees, but that’s still plenty hot for most things. The last negative is that the vent on the top cover is towards the back of the unit, so any condensation as it’s cooking will come out closer to the walls. This means that if it’s even slightly under any cabinets, then those cabinets are going to get saturated with steam so you really need to use this somewhere with nothing overhead.One thing to watch out for also is that the oil storage container’s top comes off easily, so if you aren’t careful when you’re pouring it you could end up with the top falling off and spilling oil everywhere. Just hold it together with your hand as you’re pouring and it’ll be fine.

    Works Great and Convenient!

    This is the third deep fryer I’ve had and have had this one for over a year. It is far and away the best I’ve had. The oil storage and filtering make this extremely convenient. Admittedly, this is large and requires significant space for use and storage. Due to the larger volume of oil, temperature during cooking remains much more stable and gives very good results whether you’re making donuts, fried chicken, French fries or any other deep fried foods. The simple disassembly makes it very easy to clean.

    Better than the T-Fal EZ-Clean fryer

    This fryer is extremely well made and gets to 350 degrees with no problems. I owned a T-Fal Ultimate EZ-Clean fryer before this one. They look the same but they are so different. The T-Fal is so flimsy compared to this unit. The walls are a much thinner metal, no bottom to the main body and the heating unit never got the oil hotter than 290 degrees. Because of the low operating temperature, the preheat and reheat back to cooking temp took a while. The side handles felt cheap and flimsy when carrying the unit full of oil. After years of use the heating element could only heat the oil to around 220 degrees. The only replacement part available is the magnetic power cord. So, it was time to get a new one.I was interested in the All-Clad when I bought the first one but couldn’t find any difference in the reviews other than the price and they looked like the same thing.Right out of the box I was impressed with everything I saw. The built quality was so superior than the T-Fal. The body and handles are strong and secure. I have a real confidence carrying this full of oil. The cooking bowl and basket are basically the same. The bowl is stainless steel and the fry basket is a cheaper chromed metal that will rust in the dishwasher. That’s right my T-Fal basket rusted. I ruined my basket in the dishwasher. Don’t believe the dishwasher safe line. Hand wash for the maximum life. It really doesn’t take that long to clean this unit up.That’s another thing, after several washes the bright chrome finish will still have oil smudges and smears. My solution, after washing it with soap, was to wipe the unit down with full strength vinegar, rinse and dry. It cut off all the oil and made it shinny again.The heating element is a superstar compared to the T-Fal. It got to 350 degrees effortlessly and reheated amazingly fast back to 350 while cooking.The plastic oil box is basically the same, though the T-Fal box doesn’t fit in the All-Clad. Hold the oil box with both hands when you’re pouring the oil out of it. I hold it a little lower than half way, closer to the drain port, with my thumbs holding the top on. Yes, failure to do this will cause a massive cleanup. The lid broke free and oil spilled everywhere my first time.I did call T-Fal about the low cooking temp when I first got it. They weren’t much help. They said only the elements get to 350 not the oil. Yeah, I didn’t get it either. I used my Thermoworks Thermopen MK4 so I know my readings were good and I never got more than a 290 degree reading. I guess the heating element turns off when it hits 350. I don’t know. I learned to cook with it.I’m very happy with this purchase and wished I’d went with this All-Clad the first time.

    It’s OK

    First, this is a good looking unit based on a common design. It has better side handles and is put together properly for a unit at this price point. Will it work? Mostly. They designed some nice features: stainless parts and an attractive look, easy to use, easy to take apart to clean, easy to strain & drain oil into a catch pan in the bottom. I’m not fond of the magnetic power cord, but it’s not a big deal. The cord is short, so be sure you have an outlet very close by. The ease of draining oil and clean up are nice features.Some things will cook fine, but you really need to do very small batches. I checked temp with a separate thermometer. The control panel temp setting is not very accurate, but is reasonably close on mine. The problem you must account for id recovery time. If your oil is at 375F and you put room temp fries in, the temp will drop dramatically to about 275F. The 117vac heater just isn’t powerful enough to keep the temp high or come back up to temp quickly. It took minutes to get back to 375F. On mine, maxing the temp gets the oil up to 405F, which seems to work better. The temp will drop to 290F, then rise a bit, but never fully recovers. Fries are better, but can still be too oily because they didn’t sear the outside as well as a pro fryer does. Fish will work well. Chicken is OK, but still a bit oily.The oil catch pan works, but beware, it is plastic and the edges aren’t welded/glued. Make sure you keep the drain pan flat or you will have a huge mess. Also be careful not to overfill the fryer….the extra oil will not fit in the pan!If you work in very small batches it will help keep the oil temp from dropping too far, and results are better. Setting the initial temp 50 degrees higher seemed to give me better results. I generally use peanut oil.Last, be careful! The vent for moisture is right in front of the controls. The steam will scald your bare hand and do NOT have the vent under a cabinet. The short cord can make this difficult for some.For the price point, it’s a decent unit, just don’t expect the performance of a higher end deep fryer. 117vac is not going compete against the 240vac or even gas fryers.

    This is easily the best indoor grill that I have ever owned

    It would not be an exaggeration to say that I absolutely love this grill. I have owned this grill for roughly 2 1/2 months and I can honestly say that I have never been happier with an indoor grill. I have owned several versions of indoor grills which have never failed to disappoint. They have always had issues whether it was insufficient cooking space, or that you can’t remove the plates in order to clean it effectively.This grill is a pretty large grill. It can easily accommodate 3 to 4 large rib eye steaks without an issue. I love the fact that it is easy to clean, and the plates can be removed. That was a huge selling point for me. When I take the girls off to clean it after I have finished cooking, I can take a nice soft brush or a rag and carbon comes off of this thing like butter.Another thing that I like about this grill is that you can set it for various types of meats and it will let you know when the meat is rare, medium rare, medium, medium well, or well done. The meat comes off perfect every single time. It is seared and juicy with minimal checking of your food.You can also set the grill to a temperature where you’re not relying on auto cook, if you desire. There is also a setting for frozen food. In short there are a lot of things you can do with this grill. It is very versatile. If you’re a person that has trouble cooking meat to the right amount of doneness, than this grill is a dream.One other point that often gets overlooked from other indoor grills is the drip tray. Most grills have very shallow or relatively small drip trays to catch the grease that drips from the grill. The drip tray that comes with this grill is much larger than those that come with other grills. There is more than enough space in this drip tray to accommodate the grease drippings from your food.In addition, there is a slot underneath the grill in which the drip tray slides into. This keeps the drip tray secure so that if you were to move to grill by accident then the drip tray is not out of position to catch the grease coming out of your food. I think that is a very nice piece of attention to detail that All-Clad put into this grill.I will also add that this is one sturdy piece of hardware. Much of the grill is metal, as you would expect from a manufacturer named All-Clad. I would not hesitate to recommend this grill to my friends and family members. It may be a little bit expensive, but in my opinion, it is more than worth the investment. I would buy a second one in a heartbeat.

    All clad? Ha, try All-Calimity!

    I have had this thing for a while. I regret buying it wholly!! My suggestion is, keep looking and buy a different product! I have had dripping, draining, and a basic crap show every time I have used this fryer. It does NOT ever drain properly into the bottom container. I always have a puddle of oil afterwards. Whatever you do, do not even slightly tilt this thing or you will have a huge mess. I have followed every instruction and suggestion from all-clad and still, nothing but a huge mess. Let’s not even start on the fact that no matter what or how much food you drop into the basket, it takes 10 minutes for the temperature to come back to where it is set – yes, even room temperature foods! And who has time to fry f french fries at a time to “keep temp close to range??” Who has hours to make dinner and clean and scrub kitchen at each use? I don’t! This thing is in the recycling bin today!!My suggestion, find a better product or revert back to the old fashioned way, iron skillet with some oil!Cheers!

    I’m 100% satisfied and here’s why…

    Like many home chefs I’ve avoided frying foods just because of the hassles and the mess inherent in the process. If I wanted fried chicken I would simply get in the car and head to the local chicken shack. I do have a Fry Daddy and I’d use it to fry up some French fries, but, again, the hassles were always a serious impediment. I finally got more serious about the idea of fried foods and decided to research the subject. I took about a week to make my decision, but when all the dust cleared I was the proud owner of this All Clad EZ deep fryer. I like All Clad a lot and own their waffle iron that has never failed to produce perfect waffles. So, I’ve known about All Clad quality for a very long time. I was just reluctant to pay the premium for most of All Clad’s offerings, so my kitchen is equipped with an eye on quality, but not going overboard in my spending. There are certain items that I don’t scrimp on, though, and this deep fryer is one of them.I received the deep fryer yesterday and last evening I fried up some batter dipped chicken tenders. They turned out perfectly crisp and juicy. That I expected given the reviews I had already read. There are a few other deep fryers out there that handle the oil in the same manner as the All Clad. T-Fal is the main one and it’s also got glowing reviews. Except for the better build quality of the All Clad there’s not a nickels worth of difference between the two units from what I can tell. I’d say the main advantage of the All Clad is that it’s shiny. I don’t mean to sound facetious, but to my eye the All Clad has outstanding looks. Is that worth the extra $90 over the T-Fal? It was to me.But, it’s the oil handling that really sets this fryer apart from the rest of the pack. So long as you don’t overfill the fryer you won’t have an overflow problem. Overflowing of the removable oil reservoir due to user error is the only serious complaint I’ve ever read. That and oil spillage while maneuvering the oil tank after draining the fry basin. It’s true that the oil drain container could be better designed to avoid spillage, but so long as you have a good grip on it with both hands there really shouldn’t ever be a real issue.There is one other thing that qualifies as a shortcoming. Filling the oil to the “max” line give you about 1 1/2 inches of depth under the food you’re frying. A thick chicken breast might not get fully submerged when the basket is lowered into the oil. There is a workaround for those who absolutely must fry a turkey leg, but it’s a little tricky. On those occasions just fill the fry basin to the depth required and when you’re finished “do not” drain the oil through the filtration system. If you do you’re going to have oil all over your countertop and floor. My thought is to ladle out the excess oil into a separate container until the level is down to the max line and then go ahead and complete the process through the automatic filter/drain system. It shouldn’t be a big deal to go this extra step provided you remember the ladle out the excess oil so as to not overfill the drain reservoir. That’s about the only way I can see getting into trouble with this fryer.Here are a few more observations that might help in your decision making process.1. The instructions say to not use the fry basket if you’re going to fry certain kinds of foods like donuts or batter dipped meats. The reason is the food tends to want to stick to the basket and that’s not good. I found if I grip the meat with tongs and drag it across the surface of the hot oil a few times before dropping it the batter then it doesn’t stick to the basket. Giving the basket a little shake helps, too.2. Be CERTAIN to allow the oil to cool at least 2 hours before draining it into the reservoir. Hot oil and plastic don’t mix well. I’ve read where others have actually melted their reservoirs. The unit also has an automatic drain function that detects when the oil is cool enough to drain. I’ve not tried it, yet, but will.3. It’s little awkward to carry the fryer and keep it level. The drained oil wants to slosh around like it’s trying to escape. I recommend that when you’ve cleaned up after a fry session that you remove the oil reservoir and store it separately from the body of the fryer. The oil is still going to slosh around with any tipping from perfectly level, but it’s a lot easier to manage while out of the fryer housing. I’m going to store my fryer in the pantry and keep the oil reservoir on a shelf in the garage. Without the oil the fryer is remarkably light, so ladies don’t worry about being strong enough.4. The handle on the basket can pivot or collapse to make the basket more compact for storage. That’s handy if you’re short on storage space.I have read the instruction booklet and while it is adequate it could be better. The real insights you need are to be found in written reviews. You’ll find that many of those reviews are well thought out and helpful.

    It’s everything I hoped for. Convenience FTW!

    You’d think that we Arizonans would be more casual about grilling outdoors, but we rarely do. Who wants to putter around outside in 100-degree heat? Or fire up a gas grill just to cook a couple of burgers? It’s not worth the bother.But an All-Clad advertisement caused me to look closer at this indoor grill. I resisted the impulse, I truly did. For one thing, it’s not a cheap item. It’s bulky enough that “Where would we store it?” was an entire conversation. These gizmos can be a pain to clean. And, ultimately, would we use it frequently enough to justify the purchase? Then I got a windfall check, and I figured, “You never regret your luxuries.” I’m glad we indulged.The premise is that you put the food on the grill, tell it what you’re cooking (red meat, chicken, etc.), push a button to indicate that the meat is frozen, and the sensors identify the appropriate cook time. So far we’ve used the grill to make pork chops, venison chops, burgers, and chicken thighs, and it’s been spot-on every time except the first experiment. Medium really is medium; rare has been rare. (That first moment of ineptitude is reasonable, as we were still trying to figure out the controls. It does take a little while to get the hang of it, but the “aha!” happens soon enough.)Figure that you can cook three or four items at a time (e.g. four chicken thighs). That’s perfect for our two-person household but if you’re making dinner for more people it’ll be worthwhile to fire up your “real” grill or use another cooking method. Obviously this is meant for flat-ish stuff like chops; it wouldn’t work for “beer can chicken” or other foods that don’t lie down.It isn’t any faster than using an outdoor grill, except in the sense of it preheating quickly. But it does have the convenience of “set it and forget it” so you can wander out of the kitchen while dinner is cooking… to a point. The grill has a reasonably loud beep to announce that your meat has shifted from, say, rare to medium; I can hear the beep in the next room but not at the other end of the house.Cleaning up is easy — and I do not say such things lightly. I am not big on cleaning. But the grill plates and drip tray pop out (no cussing required) and they go through the dishwasher. That advantage is worth an Amazon review point on its own.I’d say something useful about how easy it is to store the grill, but I cannot honestly do so… because the grill has been used regularly enough that we never have bothered to put it on the shelf we allocated for it. I wouldn’t plan on storing it on a top shelf, as the grill has a heft to it, but it’s not so heavy that I’m loathe to pick it up, either.It comes with a teeny recipe book which is more “here are a few examples” than a cookbook. I got a little more inspiration from a library book (Ninja Foodi Grill Complete Keto Cookbook), which made me realize that the key is, “Just think in terms of marinading stuff.” Though in general I have found you don’t need to change your favorite grilling recipes at all.As with other All-Clad equipment, the construction is excellent. This thing is built to last. I expect to keep using this grill for years to come.

    Best indoor grill I’ve ever used

    I have been using it for a few weeks, testing the different setting.I love this grill for cooking any boneless, thawed meat. Steak, burgers, chicken breasts, fish filets, grilled sandwiches. The best part is cooking my steak med rare, take it off and leave my husband’s steak on longer till it hits medium, it will “ding” again when his is done so I don’t have to worry about overcooking.So far the clean up isn’t too bad, really hot water and most bits slide off grill but cleaning between ridges will take some time.CON: it has a setting for frozen meat, I’ll never use it again. Tried twice, beef steaks then pork chops. It didn’t cook evenly, outside overcooked to raw inside.
