Product Overview

Chip-shop quality chips at home. The 17942 fryer has a 1.2kg capacity, providing plenty of room for a large basket of chips, doughnuts or whatever your favourite fried food may be! The easy-to-use dial adjusts to one of four temperature settings, so you’ll get the precise frying temperature you need. You’ll get an electronic display to help you keep track of how much cooking time remains. Plus, you’ll be able to peek at your food and check its progress thanks to a handy window at the top. And it’s a cinch to clean up after frying is done!

    Great chips

    "For many years I have eaten oven chips and hated them. The Russell Hobbs fryer produced wonderful chips - crispy on the outside and soft in the middle - very tasty. Product is easy to use and good looking."

    Its a deep fat fryer!

    Pros:Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Quiet

    "This is a well-designed and solidly built device that is easy on the eye. The fryer is simple enough to use but the internal basket has a 'fiddly' lowering/raising mechanism. While much is made of the term "digital" in the product's name, this simply refers to a clock/stopwatch unit that is independent of the heating/cooking process. Better than most, not as good as some but good value for money."

    RH Deep Fat Fryer

    "Nice appliance apart from one thing. The cable is far too short to be practical. I will need to run an extension lead to reach the socket"
