Olymstore Electric Deep Fryer Review
If you're looking for a restaurant-styled deep fryer for your home then look no further than the Olymstore Electric Deep Fryer. This fryer comes with a capacity of either 6 or 12 liters, which is much larger than your average home deep fryer. If you're looking for this large of a fryer while staying within budget, this may be the deep fryer you've been looking for.
Olymstore Electric Deep Fryer Review
As mentioned previously, this deep fryer comes in two sizes. The first is a single 6 liter deep fryer. The second, is an attached unit that contains two separate 6 liter fryers, each with their own separate plug-in. In this review, we'll mostly be discussing the single deep fryer, but we'll be sure to mention the differences between the two fryers where it's applicable.
Who is this product for?
This product is for anybody looking to deep fry a lot of food. With a 6 or 12 liter capacity, it can deep fry most foods from your own kitchen. It may not be the most appealing deep fryer, but it most certainly gets the job done. Anybody that has worked in a kitchen professionally may be more drawn to this type of fryer.
What's included will depend on which sized fryer you purchase.
In the Single 6L Deep Fryer you'll receive the base of the fryer, an inner pan to place in the base, a basket with a handle, a lid, and a heating element.
In the 12L purchase, you're basically doubling everything since there are simply two 6L deep fryers. The main exception is that each purchase comes with one manual.
Overview of features
Power- The power of each deep fryer is going to be 2500 watts at a voltage of 110. As mentioned, if you purchase the 12L setup, each 6L Olymstore deep fryer will come with its own power cord, meaning you'll have 5000 watts with two different cords. You may need to check to see whether or not your breaker can handle it, or consider using two different plugins, which may require an extension cord.
Speaking of power, with the 12L setup, because they are separate plugins, you DO NOT have to use both units at the same time. So if it's Thursday, and you're not willing to deep fry as much as you did last Monday, simply use only one of your deep fryers.
Removable Parts- Most home deep fryers come with removable parts, however, most home deep fryers aren't this large. That being said, the Olymstore deep fryer still has removable parts. The heating element is removable as well as the inner pans that hold the oil. This should ensure the unit is fairly easy to clean.
I will say the Olymstore Electric Deep Fryer could be improved if there was an easier way to drain and store oil. Yes the pot is removable, but it can be difficult pouring 6 liters of oil down anything, let alone your oil storing container. They could've put in a limp to make it easier to grab and pull out of the base.
Dimensions- Each deep fryer sits at 16.9"L, 11.0"W, and 11.8" height. So if you order the 12L double deep fryer, you the length and width should stay the same but the width should about double to 22.0".
Temperature Gauge- One of the nicer things about this fryer is that it heats up a little higher than most. Most deep fryers have a max of 375°F, but the Olymstore Electric Deep Fryer heats up to 392°F. While it may not sound like much, it could help improve your deep frying experience with things such as fries, which are typically fried at 375°F on most fryers simply because that's their limit.
How to use it
The Olymstore Electric Deep Fryer is super easy to use. It's more or less like any other deep fryer. First, you ensure your parts are assembled correctly. Next you simply plug in your deep fryer and set your temperature gauge. From there you can pour your food into your basket and then lower the food into the deep fryer. Place your lid on top of the fryer while it cooks, and once you're done, you can raise your basket out of the fryer. The Fryer even has a poled edge, that allows you to hang your basket over your oil. This helps your drain some extra oil out without creating a mess. At this point, you can paper-towel line your plate to help pull off some of the grease. Dump your food onto your plate and pat the food with an additional paper towel to rid any excess grease. Boom, you're done. Well, at least make sure you've turned off your temperature gauge and unplugged your unit for safe measure.
