If you’re looking to upgrade your deep fryer or you want to start making the tastiest foods in your own home, then the T-fal FR8000 may be the deep fat fryer for you.

T-fal FR8000 Oil Filtration EZ Clean Easy to clean 3.5-Liter Fry Basket Stainless Steel Immersion Deep Fryer, 2.6-Pound, Silver

Design

Holding 2.65 pounds worth of food, the T-fal FR8000 Oil Filtration is a beast in the deep-frying game, it can easily feed a family of four with room to spare. With a 3.5 L oil capacity taste is complemented by a high fat storage to bring out the taste in all types of fried food. The food basket is removable and has two positions for cooking and draining food.

With a patented automatic oil filtration system draining excess oil is not a problem and adds to the ergonomic design of the T-fal FR8000, a second feature that most fryers do not come with is a viewing window in the lid to help cook to perfection. A handle on the top and a light weight of 16lbs means it can be moved around from room to room fairly easily too! The controls for the FR8000 are self-explanatory, one dial to open the oil box, one to fry and want to filter oil automatically, and another thermostat dial to control temperature. Lastly an on/off switch on the side. Despite its basic look this deep fryer is very cleverly designed.
Cooking

When using the FR8000 the first thing to notice is how easy it is in comparison to older deep fryers, this is mainly because of the clever oil filtration system. Firstly it manages to remove excess food particles while cooking making for cleaner cooking and secondly the oil can be easily filtered back into the compartment for use next time (great for saving money!). If you have previously owned a deep fryer then you will be aware of how frustrating these things can be to clean up, fat always seems to end up on the counter and in the end it can see more hassle than it was worth. Not the case at all with the FR8000.

Another important drawback of using a DEEP FAT FRYER is the lingering oily food smells that can stay for hours and require windows open all day, thankfully the FR8000 is equipped with an odor filter to lessen this annoyance.
The results when cooking with the T-fal FR8000 Oil Filtration EZ Clean Easy are very impressive indeed, with an advanced oil temperature heating system, it ensures food is cooked at the best temperature. This results in crispy crunchy coatings with minimal oil absorption. The oil filtration system also does a great job of keeping the oil as clean as possible taking away any impurities and ensuring you get the tastiest result from cooking. It almost feels like a cliche to write however chips are absolutely gorgeous in the T-fal FR8000.
Cleaning
The T-fal FR8000 with Oil Filtration system very easy to clean as the excess oil is sorted back into a container for the next use, the reservoir along with the heating element lifts straight out making it a snap to clean. The heating element is the only part that is not dishwasher safe.
