Bought one of these several years ago, it’s been great if I need to make something quick and easy for dinner. I will say though that the lid is a little flimsy, it developed a crack pretty early on, and the tab on the ventilation filter screen broke off recently, so the filter can fall out easily now
@awk That’s what KFC uses. Outback uses them for baby back ribs. A local deli that my daughter manages uses one for ribs and split chickens. They use a deep fryer for Red’s chicken. When it warms up, they have a guy that uses a big ass smoker behind the store for ribs, chicken, brisket, etc.
@Kyeh@sixsmith@Kyeh@sixsmith Indistinguishable from the common State Fair brand of corndogs, whose dog is so bereft of flavor that its absence might be an improvement. (Not that the cornbread shell is any good either…)
Order cancelled… Bought this after seeing decent reviews, cancelled after reading some that claimed it was Teflon coated and some users saw some flake off…
Teflon Flakes Off!
Review by Tom T in the United States on January 15, 2021
“The teflon is flaking off badly after a month & a half. I bought Cuisinart thinking that the quality would be better, so I paid a little more. Luckily, Amazon is refunding me, but I advise anyone else not to buy this.
The teflon was peeling off all on the inside. I never did anything but gently wipe it, so it’s not user error. It’s been doing it since almost the first time I used it, but for a while I thought there was just something stuck to the surface. I looked a little closer & could see that it’s the coating disappearing. It seems like poor design to have a metal basket touching teflon anyway.”
hmm…(mostly) very intelligent smart asses, with a broad knowledge base, and a quick witted sense of humor. Not afraid to be strongly opinionated and also willing to help others with answers to questions.
@werehatrack Now that is a great idea! Interchangeable standard components, easily obtained? Blasphemy! Then there’s no repeat buyers every year and no reason for consumers to throw the whole thing in the landfill because “recycling” basically doesn’t exist for stuff like this. Gotta maximize profits!
I got one of these and have made a bunch of donuts & beignets and I gotta say… it definitely does not suck.
It’s compact and you really can’t cook a whole lot in there but it heats up decently fast (8 mins?). Donuts were done in about 3 mins per pair. Reasonable easy to clean once you get the routine down. Worth $30 honestly
