Tfal Deep Fryer

Review of the T-Fal Family Pro-Fryer Stainless Steel Immersion Fryer

The T-Fal Deep Fryer features easy controls and an adjustable thermostat. The handy indicator light lets you know when the oil is at the perfect temperature.

The fryer holds 3 liters of oil, which provides plenty of cooking space. The nonstick pot can hold over 2 pounds of food.

This fryer is also equipped with several safety features such as cool touch handles, external basket control and an automatic shut off that rings a bell to let you know it has turned off. There is a simple on and off switch so you don't need to worry about unplugging it while the fryer is hot.

A built in 60 minute timer lets you relax, knowing you won't forget your food is cooking. A washable filter helps reduce the incidence of cooking odors and many parts of this fryer can go in the dishwasher for easy clean up.

Use this reasonably priced fryer to make chicken nuggets, French fries and empanadas.

Positive Features

tfal-deep-fryer The T-Fal Deep Fryer cooks evenly. The timer is a great convenience when cooking items that need longer than a few minutes. The basket holds quite a bit... you can cook 20 chicken wings at one time.

Cleaning is easy. Strain the oil and put everything except the heating element into the dishwasher.

The basket is great for cooking almost anything. It works equally well for chicken, samosas, potato chips and egg rolls. The chassis is sturdy. It does take up some counter space, but it can always be moved when not in use.

Overall, customers have been pleased with this unit and its performance. When you need to cook large quantities of food, this fryer is one to have on your team.


The Tfal Deep Fryer has had a few complaints. Some customers have received units that worked once and then burned out. Even the reset button didn't help. The printing tends to come off of the control knob after some use. The paint just can't withstand the heat. The magnetic cord sometimes does not connect well, which can cause the unit to turn off.

The Tfal Deep Fryer works very well. It is easy to clean and care for. It heats up quickly and cooks food to a nice crispness.

Since most parts can go in the dishwasher, cleaning is much less of a chore than it is for some other fryers. The few problems that have arisen in tests seem to be rather isolated. This deep fryer seems to be of very good quality overall.

If you need a fryer that can accommodate a large meal, try the T-Fal. This model is consistent and easy to use. Even if you have not used a deep fryer before, this unit should be stable and perform well for you. The indicator light and built in timer make it even easier to use.

The on and off switch is becoming a rarity on deep fryers, but it is available on this model. This deep fryer would make an excellent gift.

This model is reliable and well made. You won't be disappointed. Even if you only fry occasionally, this fryer will be a purchase you don't regret.
