Kenmore appliance's are generally a good choice, but not this one. Woefully under powered, only 1500 watts for 3.5L of oil, takes 18min to heat to 375. Five temp settings @ 25 deg increments, 275 to 375. Difficult to remove enamel oil pan from outter shell when full of liquid, no handles, no finger dents, and the outter shell has a closed bottom so you can't push up pan to get your fingers under lip. Watch out for sharp lip edges if you do manage to pry it up. It does come with a two year warranty. Sears dropped the ball on this appliance!

I got this as a gift from my husband. He bought it because of the Kenmore name. I have never been so disappointed in a product in my life! I only used it a few times and each time I did it took forever to fry something because it kept shutting off. It shut off when I tried to set the temp. or the timer, it shut off if the cord just barely got touched. I thought the reason that the fryer kept shutting off was because the breakaway cord was ultra sensitive; however, that is not the case. There must be a flaw in the design because after only a few uses it stopped working all together. I tried to return it but even though this fryer has a 2 year warranty they refused to take it back. They did offer to trade it for another fryer, BUT, they wanted me to take one that was much smaller, and well less than half the price. Please whatever you do, do not buy this fryer it is not worth the money or the trouble.

I should have listened to the reviews! The reviews stated the power cord does not stay plugged into the unit. This is true. The cord does not stay plugged in. I threw this unit away after 5 months of use. It was a waste of money! I wound up buying a conventional round deep fryer and it works great!
This product is awesome regardless of what some of these other reviews say! My husband and I use this all the time and have had Zero problems!Its the best fryer that i have ever used!
When I first got this unit it quit after only 1 use and would not heat any more. Being an electronics engineer I took it apart and found the design mistake and corrected it. After that I have used it for the last several years with no problem. Unless you are an Electronics engineer stay away from this one.

Works great, so far I did onion rings, french fries, & I fried 2 pork chops in there, and they fry perfect with the timer, nothing gets over fried, comes out nice and crispy...
This was bought for me as a gift. While I really love the idea and the gift part, the fryer is cheaply made and feels like junk. I am so disappointed with Kenmore and Sears products anymore, everything we buy from them is junk. The lid does not fit properly, you have to hit a button that says "cancel" to start the timer!! How stupid it that! It says CANCEL, but that is the button you hit to start it. The filter the have in there is a complete joke, it wont stop any odor's at all, the plug to the back of it is VERY short, and it is magnetic and is a pain to use. The dual basket is a joke, I don't see any reason anyone would use the smaller one, ever. So I consider it a single basket. Clean up is not so bad, but removing the oil and filtering it and storing it is a pain, but that is not the Fryer's fault, but it would be very nice if they had a filter system like some other fryer's for the oil, especially in this model's price range! Sear's and Kenmore used to make good product's.

The controls are bad, the basket doesn't have a way of locking above the oil like most other fryers, the lid doesn't fit properly and it started falling apart after a week. Do yourself a favor and avoid this clunker.

The magnetic plug does not stay connected. You turn it on and go back when it should be heated and it has shut itself off. Do yourself a favor and buy something hardwired or that will atleast stay connected to electricity. Another irritating thing is the little rubber knobs on the bottom. They pop off if you move it all on the counter at all. They are not easy to get back in either. Then you end up with nice aluminum marks all over your counter top. Quite fun to scrub off.
