    It finally died after 3-4 years of use. I used this in my restaurant just for frying chicken and fish. I never has any problem. I wish it can last a few more years longer. Nevertheless, I still like it enough to buy another one for the replacement.

    I havethe essentially same #F120 (the only difference between the F120 and F100 is that the F120 has a separate, illuminated On/Off switch which makes the green jewel light redundant). But they both need to have the orange light re-labeled: "Hot" does not mean it is up to set temperature, it means that the unit is still heating. It should be re-labeled to "Heating." I find the set-to-actual temperatures a bit high but accurate enough for practical use. In my tests, the set/actual temperatures (average of two thermometers and rounded off to closest 5F, full tank) are: 160/200 - 230/260 - 300/325 and 370/390. I've had the F120 for quite some time now, and it has performed to my expectations.

    Affordable, but after 3 weeks of low use, the heat was not enough to fry corn chips.. Do not buy this item, unless you want to waste your money!.

    We got one of these units to use for large family events and small catering applications and it's been fantastic. Everything is solid and the temp swings are non existent. I highly recommend this fryer to anyone who is looking for a light unit for small applications.

    we've had this deep fryer for a few weeks now and just love it. It works great. I had read were some said the temp. was to low on there's so I was concerned about this but I checked on this one and it is just right. I would recommend this to everyone.

    Nice size unit, but does not reach temperature as advertised. I have an infrared temp gauge that I've used to verify the oil temp on this unit several times. Regardless of warmup time allowed, my unit will not exceed 334 degrees when the dial is set on Max/370. I'd like Webstaurantstore to send me another heating element to try before returning this unit.

    This is a great little fryer. I used it once a week for over a year and never had any problems with it. I'd recommend this fryer to anyone who's in need of a fryer. It's great for donuts, French fries, funnel cakes, corn dogs, etc. Lots of space for a home fryer.

    Really like this unit. Heats up fast. Designed for easy cleaning. I don't get the chatter about the basket handle. Seems plenty solid to me. A very simple, nice fryer. One caveat, not a complaint. This is made for a small food service. I bought it for home use. It uses a lot of oil which makes it expensive to just fry up fries for two. None the less, it is great for parties. Everybody loves the appetizers. I've used it maybe a dozen times now. No problems. The hooks on the back of the basket are a nice feature for letting the basket contents drain a bit before emptying. Nice unit.

    We do a lot of frying and burned up a lot of consumer models. This thing is great, holds it's temp and I can do enough wings to where the first batch isn't gone before the second batch is ready. It is the envy of all who see it.

    We have messed around with many fryers for use in our home until we found this one. Its higher capacity oil size helps to eliminate temperature drop which results in greasy food. You will never regret buying this fryer.

    This fryer is the perfect size for frying small items, like donuts, waffles, french fries and more. I love that the oil receptacle is a standard half deep steam pan, which makes it easy to clean and swap out during busy service. Great little fryer.

    I am very pleased with this Avantco fryer. Just what the doctor ordered. Money well spent. Webstaurant is a very good place to shop. A happy customer once more.

    from SMOKEYS Posted on

    Awesome fryer. Best Economy Fryer on the market. Great power. Low price and commercial level cooking. Best fryer I've ever owned. I get 14 to 16 chicken legs at one time. Takes about 16 minutes. Depending on size. Doesn't burn oil easily. Can sit in for hours. Heats up in about 10 to 15 mins. Steady heat.

    from LANIERS CATERING Posted on

    Terrific fryer. Clients race about my fried chicken

    I love it. My friends have the same one and I love everything about it. You can't beat the price. Best website ever. Buy it you won't regret it.

    from Whitehall manor Posted on

    this is my 2nd fryer i purchased first one i got was the double fryer that i use for frying chicken wings and the other is now used for plantain or fries i owned the double fryer for a few years so a few months ago i purchased the single fryer and as the first one i am VERY satisfied with them.

    Doesn't reach set temp and Customer service is putting me through the hell to return & get a refund. I receive this unit today I was so happy until I got to use it. I put in oil and took the temperature after 30 minutes and it would only register at 320-330. I even waited an additional 30 minutes and still it's unable to reach the set temperature of 370....I guess to Webstaurant I should be happy with those result because Customer Service wants me to send a video of my reading (which I don't mind), but this a first time I've encounter something like this... I paid for something that advertises that it reaches a max temperature of 370, but what I got was a dud. It also doesn't recover well, when I added fries to this deep fryer the temperature drop to 310-315 and takes forever to go back up to 320-330 (set at 370). I should have listen to the bad reviews on this product.....totally useless for my needs, and worst Customer Service Support ever I've had to deal with.

    We got this small fryer to use for all of our sushi frying so as to keep fish flavors in one fryer. The fryer is small countertop size, and the basket is about 10 inches by 8 inches. The depth of the oil when filled to the max line is about 6 inches deep. The unit comes apart easily for easy cleaning. So far, we've had it almost 2 years and it still works great. Only reason I gave 4 stars is because the temperature dial isn't accurate, when you set it to the highest temp which is 375 it's actually only at about 325.

    from Neptunes' Brewery Posted on

    Won't reach set temp and won't recover temp when food is added. First, deep-frying only matters between 350-380 degrees. I have no interest in, and no use for, a deep-fryer that fails to reach 360 and beyond, without food in it. Any situation where oil temp drops below 350 is merely ruining food by soaking it in warm oil. I properly assembled this unit, and the max temp reached after 45 minutes at max unit setting of 370 was 355 as measured by my $100 Thermo-pen digital temp gauge. I added a double-order of small raw Buffalo chicken wings (eighteen, to be exact, less than three pounds of food). The temp dropped to 306 and only recovered, after ten minutes of frying, to 321. This is not acceptable for true deep-frying. Sorry to say, I had my doubts as soon as I learned upon on delivery that this item was made in China. Unacceptable for true deep-frying. Based on my experience as a true craftsman deep-fry chef for thirty years, do not buy. Webstaurant, what are my options, here?

    Perfect small countertop fryer. Can basically put this ANYWHERE. I've taken the fryer to festivals and outdoor events. It's very lightweight and compact. Easy to use. Can't beat the size and price on this bad boy!!!

    from Hanaro Posted on

    Great small fryer, holds about 5 quarts of oil. Perfect for garnishes , appetizers etc. it's bigger than most home appliance fryers. Mine holds temperature well.

    from Village green Posted on

    Perfect countertop fryer for business or home use with little room.. Gets up to temp fast and holds it. Love this fryer and the amazing price.

    from Russ' Sub Shack Posted on

    I like my F100 10 Lb electric fryer. It makes the perfect french fries. I us it at my house but it can be used in a commercial place too. Very good fryer.

    from Cliffmart LLC Posted on

    Great deep fryer for a great price! Reheat oil fast and keep the temperature. It's easy to clean or exchange oil. Finale product quality is great!

    from Tom Posted on

    Bought this fryer for an outdoor Bachelor Party. Got heated up in no time, about 15-20mins. Worked great! We made onion rings, fried goat cheese balls, and zeppoles. Everything came out great. Needs time to cool down when you are finished. I would definitely recommend this fryer to anyone. I have used it 3 times since I purchased the fryer a few weeks ago. All you need is oil, Canola worked fine, and an outlet. Make sure you have a place for the used oil after it cools down!

    Very dissatisfied with this item and Westaurantstores handling of the situation . If you are using for home use your warranty is void. Have only used twice for very light duty frying and unit will not maintain heat. When I contacted customer service I was told my warranty is void. Therefore I just wasted money. If this unit can't stand up to a couple of home uses how could it ever be used commercially? It is clear in other reviews that there is some kind of defect. Do not waste your money too!!!!

    I ordered this Avantco Countertop Fryer with no previous commercial fryer experience. For me, as a food trailer owner who does a brisk lunch business, this is a great fryer. I don't know how long it takes to heat compared to other fryers, but I have experienced no major adverse problems. The components come apart to make clean up easy. I have 3 minor complaints. The red Avantco face doesn't wipe grease away very easily. The second more serious issue are the little finish metal pimples that stick out on the body where the metal joins and they weren't filed away. They have the ability to stab or cut you if you aren't careful. the third issue is the feet; they are beginning to get soft and leave black marks from being greased/cleaned so often. I have used this fryer for approximately 1 1/2 years. It is easy to clean (other than the face), and does its job well. Recently I thought I was going to have to buy another fryer, but finally realized that the heating element/control wasn't seeded in correctly and this activated the safety device, therefore cutting the power; this is exactly what it is designed to do. I would not hesitate to buy another one.

    from Country Junction Mercantile Posted on

    Not the best product for the money. Doesn't hold much product and has had to replace it already. Not worth the money that was spent.

    I have purchased many home fryers in the past and they have all worked OK. I used the Avantco fryer tonight for the first time and it cooked fantastic! I used canola oil to fry and everything was nice and crispy. I am soooo happy with this fryer and I'm sure it will last a lot longer than my past fryers and you can't beat the price. Can't wait to fry beignets tomorrow!

    from Home use Posted on

    We tried out our fryer for the first time the other night. Works great! It takes a few minutes longer to heat up compared to a gas fryer, but not too long. We tried several different food items to see how accurate it cooked compared to the cooking times on food label suggestions. It did an outstanding job. We are very pleased!

    from Flip Flop Burgers Posted on

    This is the perfect fryer for a small shop I use when I do corporate catering a it works amazing get hot really fast and the clean up is easy... it can only be used in a commercial building so don't use it at home or at a event held in someones home.

    from My Halal Tummy Posted on

    I don't fry very often, so the size of this was perfect for me. The temperature controls are accurate, and the oil heats evenly and quickly. Very easy to use, though somewhat of a pain to clean. Also compact enough for home use without losing all of your counter space.

    Posted on

    Okay product. It broke after 1. 5 years. The only thing is the shipping gets too much. I would buy this product again provided that shipping is a bit less :)

    This is a great countertop fryer. The basket fits nicely and sits flat inside the fryer. The timer is nice and it comes apart and its very easy to clean.

    from Concessions Posted on

    Bought for home use to cook for large family. Was able to fry 30 lbs of chicken in an hour and it was the best fried chicken I've ever made. Fryer is easy to clean and store. Best price and best product.

    from residential Posted on

    Nice and wide basket, does not need a whole lot of oil, great for gas marts or consession stands of where no Gas (LP or natural) is permitted, even useful and convenient for big families. Worked great for us.

    Very Dependable Fryer , we use it for appetizers and French fries and we are medium size restaurant and it did its job great ! I will buy again this product

    from mediterranean Harbour Posted on

    The best part of this fryer is it is not expensive and is NSF approved. 120v and works great. Ideal for light to medium use although I have customers who use this every day without any issues. Easy to clean too. I've purchased both the single and double unit both work excellent.

    Just received this product and used it right away. It is a great tabletop fryer for light duty (french fries, etc.). The lid is fantastic and appears to be very durable. Highly recommend.

    I have purchased a number of deep fryers over the years. This one is the best by far. It can fry 1.98 pounds of food at a time. It works extremely well. The only features that it does not have and I don't think either is necessary, is a timer and a drain spout for removing the oil.

    Posted on

    I'd have to say that if your looking for a great Deep Fryer that works fast with great results you should order this Deep Fryer. I ordered one and it works better than the one I used to have! Wish I found webstaurantstore.com much sooner!

    Great little fryer at a great price. Easily cooks up 18-24 wings at once. Maintains temperature during cooking and heats up quickly. Cleanup is easy. Perfect for minimal use, I would get a double well or larger unit if you do a lot of frying.

    from Michael's Pizza Posted on

    This is def worth getting for home use! I've cooked plenty of chicken wings, french fries, and various other fried foods. It's also only 10 lbs!

    We use this in the concession trailer along with a double unit. It gives us the flexibility to prepare a wider variety of food in a minimal amount of space.

    This is a quality table top fryer, we purchased this product to run dinner service out of a small cafe and it made the grade for sure.

    Posted on

    This is a neat fryer. Used it to fry french fries for 70 people at a dinner. I learned I need to start 1 hr ahead & keep them warm in the oven. It couldn't quite keep up with people coming thru the line. Great fryer for the price though.

    Posted on

    I had high expectations for this fryer based on the recommendation someone gave me on a forum, especially since I had a "prosumer" one based on what the manufacturer said (ie: heating element in the oil). Wow, were they ever surpassed by this Avantco fryer. Oil capacity is great, the basket is sturdy, it heats and maintains temperature quite well and its capacity is great. The other nice thing about it is that the "grate" that protects the heating elements is removable so it makes cleaning easier. At that price, I don't think that there's anything close to it. FWIW, I use it at home, not in a restaurant setting

    from MG Posted on

    these are really nicely sized for demonstrations, or home use. Also convenient if you need to fry garnishes for one station separate from the fryer.

    Posted on

    Considering the tight space and minimal fried menu, this fryer was the perfect purchase for our kitchen. Considering its size, it makes clean up a breeze! Definitely recommend it!

    This is the perfect sized fryer for home use! Great for homemade chicken tenders or fresh chicken wings! Great to use for small offsite catering events too!!

    This deep fryer is a great tool to have in any kitchen. The temperature control is accurate and holds steady, allowing for consistent results. The fry basket is a bit small, so I tend to fry without it, but it does come in handy for some smaller foods. Cleaning the fryer is pretty simple as well. Highly recommended product.

    Posted on

    This is a fantastic addition to our restaurant. We have 2 full size fryers and use this for fish. Big enough, yet doesn't take up much room, and keeps a consistent temp.

    from buncey's Posted on

    This is great. We have used it almost every night since I got it. I have set it up outside so we have no smell in the house from oil. It works perfectly.

    After a few test runs I've got the hang of this fryer, and am enjoying it more and more! We've made fried cakes, hushpuppies, and of course lots of french fries! Give the unit plenty of time to heat the oil. I'm looking forward to doing my own chicken wings and lots of other goodies but so far the fried cakes were the best! :)
