Major Benefits

When it comes to the major benefits of this fryer, it’s really about the flexibility it offers in the kitchen and its ease of use. Even if you’ve never used a deep fryer before, are a bit nervous to try one, or you aren’t sure what you could even cook up in it, after a couple of uses you’ll feel like a pro.

It makes it easy to make delicious food and everyone will be asking for more deep fried items.

What's Great

Taking a closer look at these and other standout features, there’s a whole lot to point out that is “great” about this deep fryer. As mentioned above, one of its most important features is the fact this unit is meant for families. If you don’t want to have to make multiple batches of one recipe just to provide enough food for everyone, the 4 liter capacity basket is perfect. In that sense, it saves a lot of time and hassle since you get so much done at once.

Where it used to be that in order to deep fry anything you'd need to do it on the stove in a pot with oil, which was both dangerous and messy, this deep fryer is all about convenience and safety. You won't have any oil splatters and spills to clean up, and there is a lid that has a viewing window so you know the hot oil is safe and contained. Clean up is also fast and easy as you can just remove the basket and put it in your dishwasher. No fuss, no mess.

Then there is the actual quality of the food, which is another thing Chefman has really managed to master. The 1700-watt heating element combined with the air filters ensures everything will be perfectly crisp, cooked evenly, and yet not overly oily. Because the basket clips to the side, the oil is able to drain rather than just sit on your food.

As mentioned, you're also getting restaurant-grade materials, which means you can expect this fryer to hold up well for quite some time.

Other features include cool touch handles, knobs for controlling the temperature, stainless steel construction, and a removable oil container.

What Needs Work

As far as the negatives, or what could use a little work on the unit, they are generally the same potential problems that other non-commercial deep fryers have.

According to customers there have been some issues with the heating element working properly, and maintaining a consistent temperature. Some customers have also commented on the fact it can be hard to clean up depending on what you have fried up.

Chefman vs. T-Fal Deep Fryer (4-Liter Models)

Another highly rated deep fryer unit is the T-Fal 4 Liter Deep Fryer, which has the same sized frying basket as the Chefman 4 Liter Deep Fryer. One of the biggest differences between these two deep fryers is the T-Fal model offers three baskets for frying. You can use the large 4 liter basket, or you can use the pair of 2-liter baskets instead. This gives you a bit of flexibility, letting you cook two different items at once.

Both models feature an attractive stainless steel construction, and the baskets in both are dishwasher safe. The T-Fal model has a 1800-watt heating element, which gives it 100 watts more than the Chefman model.

The main complaint that popped up among customers who purchased the T-Fal model is that it didn't hold up well over time, and often stopped working just outside of the warranty period. This means customers were either left paying for repairs themselves or having to invest in a new deep fryer altogether.

The Final Word

If you’re looking for a deep fryer that holds a large amount at once, is simple to understand, safe to use, is durable, and promises to change how you cook for the better, the Chefman deep fryer is an excellent option.
