Great for cooking small amounts of food such as starters etc. Cleaning is fussy and could be made easier but i enjoy being able to make a handful of chips of the fussy one in the family :-).
A bit like a tardis, holds plenty for 2 people. Shame the handle does not fold, otherwise it would be perfect.
Great product very fast service would recommend 10/10.
Excellent fryer, nice and compact, and fits very neatly into the small space i had.
- Well worth purchasing
- Great for cooking small amounts of food

Superb little frier easy to clean.
This appears to be well made from materials that have a quality feel about them, shough the shiny metallic parts are a bit of a fingerprint magnet and if you spill oil on it, it takes a fair amount of elbow grease to completely remove the marks. With easy to follow instructions, this makes wonderfully crunchy and fluffy chips. It heats up quickly, is easily stored, and is the perfect size for someone living alone, or for a couple with moderate appetites. Chips taste so much better fried.Great for a once in a while naughty treat.
This is a great product if you are cooking for one – really magic for chips . I didn’t expect too much, but i have been very pleasantly surprised.
The packaging this item arrived in was great: box just the right sixe and the fryer well protected. The unit is small and neat enough to sit on any worktop, while the size is just right for two people with smallish appetitesi do not, however, think this will be easy to clean as there is no drain to remove the oil. This means you must either have really steady hands as you pour the oil back into a bottle. Of course the oil could always be poured into a larger container, then put through a filter or strainer before pouring into bottle. This involves a lot of messing about and more washing up of extra utensils. The answer to this would have been a small spout for easy pouring built into the rim of the tank. Washing the inside of the tank will also be a problem as the power cable is permanently attached to the tank. I think the design team could have thought this through better. Another grumble is the design of the handle. Fitting it is easy enough if you have strong hands and fingers.
Ok, so when i first got this, before i used it, i didn’t really like it. I thought it was far too small, and as the base wasn’t weighted, it was liable to tip over. Not great when it has hot oil in it. I also wasn’t impressed with where the on/off switch was and the lack of temperature settings on the dial. And i thought the basket was really small. But, i thought let’s give it a go. I removed the lid – which is simple to remove and replace – and then put the basked and handle in the dishwasher to give them a wash. Once the basked was washed i put the handle onto the basket and noticed that as the handle was heavier than the basket, the basked constantly tipped. So after i filled the container with 1 litre of vegetable oil it did actually feel a bit more stable. And once i had worked out the correct way to put the handle on the basket, put the basket in the oil.
Just right size i don’t west lots of oils with this little fryer happy with item.
Gave this 3 stars as it is prone to overflow even with oil to the level.
Excellent value and service thanks.
Just what it says on the tin, light easy to clean and cooks enough chips for 2.
This is a great space saving fryer, big enough to do chips for two people. I love the fact that you only need to use one litre of oil in it. The lid simply pulls off for cleaning and the basket and handle are a doddle to put together. Some people have commented that it is slow to heat up – yes, it does take a while because it is only a 1000w heater. I think some people have unrealistic expectations if they expect it to heat up in a minute. If you want something that heats up quickly, buy a much more expensive higher wattage fryer. This fryer is light, looks very stylish (the only exception to that being the rather cheap looking temperature dial), and works a treat. There is a power on/off switch on the back of the fryer. You basically switch on the fryer, set the temperature you want and when the little red light to the side of the temperature dial goes out you are ready to cook.
Perfect for 2 people, small and compact.
This tefal mini fryer is the ideal size for me. The fryer is about the same size as a two-slice toaster. The compact size makes it perfect for my usage: i only make fried food very occasionally. A few chicken or prawn balls when i’m making chinese, the occasional calamari, and courgette fritters during the summer, when they’re in season. The colour listed in the title (white/black) is incorrect: it’s stainless steel and black. The build quality is quite nice: much nicer than the basic, lightweight white plastic 900ml russell hobbs fryer i’ve had for several years. The basket isn’t the most robust, but is a significant improvement on the basket on my old fryer (which i haven’t used in years). Inside, the walls warm when in use: there’s no exposed heating element, which makes this easier to clean out than my previous mini fryer. There’s not enough room in the 1l capacity to cook for a family in one sitting, but for a couple or to make an occasional naughty side dish without needing another enormous kitchen gadget, this is ideal.
Mini deep fryer, perfect for two persons. Excellent for frying chips, chicken and fish and so forth. Only gripe is that it is uncomfortable to clear as it can not be immersed in drinking water (except the issue is that i just have not worked out how to clear away the inside compartment?).
Very nice i have a 3 liter just one with ‘cold zone’ and things but i assume this one can take about as a lot content as the factor is ‘hidden’. I like it a good deal and suggest a get.
So content with this fryer, purchased yet another one particular for mum, it does enought for two folks, have only built chips, and takes up no house. Uncomplicated ample to clear, been so light.
Easy to use and pretty handy.
Pretty fryer ,just wright for two individuals.
This diddy wee fryer requires up about the same area space as a toaster, so it truly is a excellent possibility for a pair or tiny household who like to do the occasional deep fry. I was amazed at how tiny the product is but also how well created it feels – sturdy without staying also major. The plastics have a great really feel as do the button and dial. You will find not much to the device, but there is certainly no will need to not maintain it simple. I like that i was able to twice-fry my chips – 1st at the reduce heat environment, then again at the bigger location for delicate fluffy insides and crisp exterior. The fryer is compact, but has a cavity big adequate for a balanced size fish fillet, so you can happily make a fish supper for two with this. I also tried out it with indian pakoras and the see-by way of window made the full point definitely easy, permitting me see when everything was browned properly. We do not are likely to deep fry really often, but some factors are just superior that way. For the occasional use, i couldn’t justify a bigger or extra expensive product, but for below £50 and its measurement, i truly do advocate this tefal. Please observe: i been given a unit to assessment from amazon, but now that i’ve attempted it, i would not hesitate to expend my personal cash on it.
