    We use this to cook 2-3 servings of chicken or fish at a time - one side is dedicated to fish/seafood. Have been using daily for about 6 weeks, it usually sits on low heat for about 5 or 6 hours a day, we raise the temp as needed for orders. (Fries are done in a full size fryer.) Have had absolutely no problems & it solved a major space issue.

    This fryer works great! I agree with many of the other comments though about the handles on the baskets. They do not stay in place. I found a fix though. If you bend out the bottoms of the handle and run the handle "around" the opening instead of through it, and they bend the bars back, it is a solid fix and they work great, the down side is you will not be able to fold them over at night, it is a permanent position for the handles. The unit heats up in about 20 minutes. WE do a full bag of fries (6 bags to a case type) in about 14 minutes it yields us about 12 orders. This is a good light use machine, I wouldn't want to use it 10 hours a day 7 days a week. AS always I was satisfied with the price paid and the quick shipping. It took care of our needs for a high school foot ball game on a Friday night and will do so for years to come I'm sure.

    We used this fryer to make fresh made to order french fries. It did a pretty good job and the client was pleased with the outcome.

    We were a little bit scared when we bought this fryer because we didnt know what to expect. We used it for our big events. Surprisingly it works as good as our big commercial fryers. Its super easy to setup and it heats up very quickly. Easy to clean and put away. We love it and cant wait to use it again.

    from L&L hawaiian bbq Posted on

    The fryer is good for light duty work and light duty only. I wouldn't recommend this if you would be consistently using it throughout the day.

    We've been using this fryer for years to fry any and everything that can fit. It maintains the temp pretty well if you don't crowd the fryer and reaches a temp of about 350F. It shows clearly the min/max fill line for oil and has a display to indicate when the fryer is hot and heating. It is tough to clean the heating unit sometimes, but if you are careful and have the right tools, very doable.

    We bought our first fryer a little over 3 years ago. Since then, we purchased a second one earlier part of 2016. The first fryer was basically the same model, but they must had changed manufactures or something. The newest model baskets was not made as well and the heating elements were not interchangeable with the older model. We bought a second one because these do take some time to clean and we change oil and clean out weekly. Just worked better for us. The original fryer had either the power button or one of the lights go out on it, cant remember which, but I just bypassed to get it to continue to work. Last week it started to actually trip the reset breaker built under the control console. So I just placed an order for my 3rd one today. I could probably get it to work, but this thing is over 3 years old, I've made my money back no doubt. We turn our fryers on around 10:00 in the morning until 9p.m. 7 days a week. Cook chicken, fries, onion rings, corn dogs, mushrooms, fried pickles, tots all the good stuff there. The handles for the baskets do come out. You can try what ever you want to, it will come loose at some point, not too cool with hot grease! I installed two 2.5in metal joint plates with bolts and wing nuts for easy removal, one on the inside of handle and outside of basket. Don't have to worry about handles coming off anymore, unless you want them to. Recovery time does lag a little, but not that big of a deal, just have to keep eye on when cooking. Can kind of sucks if too busy, but we have managed. For the money, it does the job. I would like to upgrade, but as far as space and cost, mainly space...... I'm just not making the jump yet.

    from Mom/Pop Grocery Posted on

    Great little fryer for the price. Recovery time is sufficient for small operation. Love that it's easy to break apart and clean. Would definitely recommend for small restaurant with low fryer volume.

    from Y'all Come Eat Posted on

    Double fryer 120V, 3500W. I bought this one for home and it is very good fryer. If you keep up with clean fry oil it will fry some very good and tasty food.

    from Cliffmart LLC Posted on

    Deep baskets allow for plenty of items to be cooked at once. Takes a while to heat up, but nothing major. I would consider buying 2 single tank fryers vs this dual one in case your electrical connections require flexibility. Overall great product.

    Posted on

    When I use this product, I found it is broken after connecting the power , then I associated customer service request a refund money but they are a lot of reasons not to return , but also they want me to repaired , then after one day , I contact customer service, but they say to return much charge 30% of the cost , I think this company is too bad , bad product returns also deducting money , I do not recommend to buy

    Have a few of these. They heat up fairly quickly. I only use them for catering and for the price they are well worth it.

    This Dual tank fryer is great we like the fact that it is countertop and electric, so we don't have to worry about any special installations, just hook it up anywhere and you are good to go! Great for outdoor events too.

    from AMERMEX FROZEN PRD Posted on

    Avantco dual tank electric counter top fryer good for busy places or restaurant & deli . Its time saver , easy to use comes with all the attachment using this item everyday .

    from flavors of india Posted on

    We use this product every time we are open. The product is easy to clean and makes the load on our other fryers smaller. When we are in a pinch we use this fryer in order to stay caught up.

    from The Dock Posted on

    This fryer is perfect for the small kitchen looking for a way to easily expand menu. The 2 bays hold oil temp very well and is relatively easy to clean.

    Posted on

    This product was a huge let down. We bought it because we do very light frying 12 donuts a day and 20 cannoli's a week. It would not reach temp, the hottest it would get is 200 degrees. I returned it for a full refund and bought a different brand.

    from Tripps Primal Farm and Kafé Posted on

    Thank you for your review on this countertop fryer, Mark! We are sorry it did not work out for you. Our Customer Solutions Team was happy to help you get credit for this item.

    WebstaurantStore Customer Solutions

    We bought two sets of this, and we had plug it in every day since 8 minths ago for 13 hours oer day, we has no problems so far, they heat up fast like about 10 to 15 minutes to 370 f, for the price its a great product.

    from The pastry house Posted on

    This fryer is awsome I have enjoyed cooking with it. It is not made for large scale frying but is great for med to small size events and frying.

    Posted on

    Sorry to say but the box which came had been ripped open and was damaged at few places. If you had sent a sealed box how come it is opened and damaged. I can be reached at my email on record.

    from Mehtani Restaurant Group Posted on

    Thank you for your review! We are sorry your shipment was damaged. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you to assess the situation.

    We do a good amount of off premise catering and this fryer offers us an inexpensive, portable way to fry foods to order. One of the challenges with this fryer for us has been the amount of power necessary to run both fryers. If you are using this fryer in-house, this will not be a problem since you will have control over this issue. But if you are relying on a power hook up at a residence, at a fair, etc, you may find yourself either not being able to turn on the unit or only being being able to use one of the two fryers at once. (you need 15 amps for each fryer)

    from lan pan asian cafe Posted on

    This is a great product, but I would only recommend using this fryer in a low volume setting, they lose temperature when used in high volume.

    from Mr.Roland's Catering, LLC Posted on

    I really like this item it is very nice I would recommend it to anyone completely satisfied with it I give it a 5 star

    from Route 6 Market LLC, Posted on

    Solid product for the price. Better than anything you can get at a big box store but don't expect the same recovery time and build quality of one that costs 5x as much. Cooks fries and appetizers fine but for fish it's better to get a better built fryer that can recover faster and hits a true 375 degrees.

    Posted on

    The temperature control works well and the dual tank provides adequate space and is helpful when frying foods separately such as egg rolls and desserts. The only drawback we have found is that the basket handle will sometimes fall out of place, so we try not to shake the basket. Other than the basket handle, this countertop fryer does the job.

    from Here, There and Everywhere Cafe Posted on

    It gets the job done. The thermostat leaves something to be desired as it is not accurate. I used an electronic temperature probe to test it

    Posted on

    the unit does heat up and fry, that said, it is very hard to clean, the materials are cheap and it has a bad design. The baskets are nice, but the handles are silly and dangerous. It overflows oil all over even when filled to the lowest fill level. No switch so you must unplug it for safety. Plus this one was received with a bent element. So far, I have not been able to get any help with it. avoid this product.

    I was skeptical about the size for my small restaurant/catering business. However, it is the perfect fit!! Definitely worth every penny and is efficient even during busy periods. Planning to get another one for off-site events.

    from Jamaican Pot LLC Posted on

    Good product. We use it (plus the single pot model) for items that take 3-4 minutes to fry. It stays on for about 4 hours/day and has been used for several months with no problems. Small restaurant with a limited fry menu.

    from Tom's on Main Posted on

    This fryer is good for cooking fries. The capacity isn't huge but I still only use one side at slower times and start the other side once i gets really busy. If your volume is small this is excellent.

    Posted on

    Fantastic Little Fryer. I use it all the time in my Diner for Fish and Shrimp. It has come in very handy as a backup and overflow fryer as well during busy times. Great buy for the Money !

    from Tubbys Diner Posted on

    Works as advertised in my opinion. I use this deep fryer for home use and the Dover Sole fish I fry comes out just like the restaurants I visit. Just make sure you're cooking at 365 F. I highly recommend this deep fryer.

    Posted on

    When space is limited this is the perfect unit if you plan to still deep fry items. Easy to fill and use. Great for small spaces and a great item for appetizers.

    Posted on

    Great small fryer for any home kitchen or any small restaurant that only has a few fried items on the menu. Also gotta love the price for such a sleek small fryer with a splash top.

    Posted on

    Great fryer and the two cords is extremely helpful. We do a very small amount of frying in our kitchen so its convenients compared to a whole fryer.

    Posted on

    Did not last a full year. One burner went out and then the other. Probably a good product for light use. Definitely not heavy use.

    Posted on

    Thanks for your review! This is a well priced fryer that is designed for light-duty use. We have received much positive feedback from customers who have used this fryer in low-volume operations. For high-volume use, we recommend the Waring WDF1000D Heavy Duty 10 lb. Commercial Countertop Deep Fryer Set 120V.

    WebstaurantStore Customer Solutions

    The Avantco 20 Pound Commercial Countertop Fryer with Twin Pots 120V. It is great each side das it's own cord so they can be set a different tempatures. It is perfect for concession stands.

    from Harrison Familey Restaurant Posted on

    The Avantco 20 lb. Commercial countertop Fryer - Twin Pots 120v. It is great for our concession stand. The fryer baskets and lid for overnight are included. You can use one side only if needed, cause each side has it's own cord.

    Posted on

    this fryer is pretty awesome, and just the right price heats up fast and stays at a consistent heat as its being used, very nice for a inexpensive fryer

    from LA TAZZA FRESCA Posted on

    I love this fryer! Keeps temp really well and allows to cook dozen wings without crowding. They cook up nice and crispy! Only wish is that it had a timer attached to it.

    from RnD Deli and Market Posted on

    Great fryer that keeps the oil at an even temperature which helps keep a consistent product. I would recommend this to all small delis and restaurants.

    Posted on

    Ok, so I love this fryer. I'm a small deli with limited work space. I can use one side for french fries and the other side for coated buffalo chips, excellent for my business. When I first opened the deli, i was only serving fries so i would use only one side of the fryer and once it got dirty, i would use the other side until both sides were dirty and then i would clean it. Definately recommend this fryer!

    from Jennelles Posted on

    A little smaller than expected but it works very well. I recommend for a backup or quick fix to any fryer needs that you might have.

    from Iacofano's Posted on

    I recommend this item mainly because of the price. Purchasing these separately any where else is very expensive. I like the separate thermostat so you can let one cool to change the grease and still keep rolling out food with the other

    from Innovative Catering Posted on

    This fryer works great in one of my mobil food units, heats up fairly fast and maintains the proper temp...Great people to do business with, very helpful!! Thanks A Million!! I would advice to buy this fryer. Wonderful price, I am going to buy another one later...

    from Kick-N Chick-N Kitch-N Posted on

    Very Good product, just received so have not had much time to use. But, all the products we have bought from Webstaurant Store have been very reliable.

    from Coot & Nanny's Posted on

    We ordered this fryer to replace one that finally failed and have been very happy with it, we use it for fries daily and it has worked perfect, had a small issue with one side but the Webstaurant support staff was super quick to resolve it, would highly recommend it for anyone who needs a small low cost GOOD fryer

    from Griffn Dawg House Posted on

    Fantastic little fryer, we use this on a regular basis for our off site catering. Recovers very quick and holds consistent. Will buy another soon.

    from JONABELLA CATERING Posted on

    This fryer is the best for the money you pay, I love it. It is very economical very light and good looking as well as compact. It is a good one.

    from sambusa wraps Posted on

    Outstanding fryer - we use for promotional tailgating events - it handles the load with easy. The thing I like the most is the easy clean up. I would recommend this product for anyone who likes or needs to fry food.

    from Rawlings Sporting Goods Posted on

    Excellent purchase! Allows me to fry chicken or fish for my catering business without mixing the oils. You can either use one side or botth sides together. Heats up withing 15 minutes and you can also purchase the filter powder to clean your oil to be reused. A must buy for small business owners!

    Posted on

    This is very easy to work with on the counter at home. We got it as a testing fryer at home when we don't want to load oil into our large commercial fryers. The temp range is accurate to our large fryers and gives us a chance to test new products in small quantity befor adding to our menu.

    from Whatchagotcookinar Posted on

    I am a caterer and purchased this for a big in store event that my company catered. It is awesome! We did french fries for 175 people in an hour. It was easy to use, quick to come up to temperature and easy to clean because all the pieces come apart. The ONLY little problem is the handles on the baskets, which someone else mentioned here. For the price though- you absolutely can not beat this thing. Get one!

    Posted on

    This deep fryer was the most economical that I could find; and I am so happy that I did. I love the dual wells with separate temperature controls. We do a small fried menu and this fryer heats up fast, maintains temperature well, and provides for easy cleanup. The only disadvantage is the lack of timer(s. This is highly recommended for small cafes and restaurants.

    from The Smothered Mutt Posted on

    This is the best price I ever found on the 20 lb Countertop fryer with twin pots at 120 v. It heat up very quick and it works just well like all the other expensive one. Got it for my mom, she loves it.

    from Kajun Burger Posted on

    This fryer is great. The heatup and recovery time is excellent. Its easy to clean and Maintain. I looked around for quite a while and found this one to be the most reasonably priced and most reliable. I would reccomend this unit for anyone looking for a nice compact table top electric fryer.
