One of the most well known relatively expensive deep fryers is the waring pro DF280 professional deep fryer with brushed stainless features. The product is made in the United States where it is essentially used. With the overseas buyers increasing in leaps and bounds most retail shops especially online have developed the shipment option. This appliance has a one gallon removable enamel coated container which is designed with a pouring spout. The appliance also has one large and two small mesh baskets with cool touch collapsible handles and a digital timer attached to a temperature controllable lid.
The capacity of the fryer is so large that it can carry I gallon and so can be a suitable companion for people who want to prepare deep fried cuisines for events and relatively large groups. Its 18 inch height and can heat to a maximum of 425 degrees which enables all the food to cook evenly. The fryer can be used for making several types of food. The large capacity makes it large consumer of oil, the oil used for deep frying is usually more compared to other deep fryers.
The waring pro DF280 has been down sized by the waring group to cut on the cost of production making the appliance appear to be inferior to the original waring fryer. That is the major reason why it has no filters, hooks for suspending the frying basket. These reduced features make the unit only suitable for home use and not commercial use sadly.
Most user who have used the fryer praise it for superb frying experience, its also praised for its easy to clean features thereby saving time. However, the only disadvantage with its use is that the baskets sit on the heating element and its size makes it to be extremely hard to use with several types of filter baskets in the market. Its price is also friendly considering all the advantageous features, at around $80; the product is a darling for most people who need to engage in quality and quantity deep frying.
The quality of the product has generally been compromised by the manufacturer making it to be sometimes very inconveniencing to use considering other types of deep fryers.

It is celebration time and your kitchen is a hive of activity as you try out your new Waring Pro DF280. This wonderful deep fryer has a huge 1800-watt immersion heating element that should heat up your oil within fifteen minutes of start up, to the correct frying temperature of 375°F. There are many deep fryers that say they heat up to the correct temperature but fall short on many occasions but the Waring Pro DF280 meets the recommended standards. One large and two smaller baskets are perfect designed so that you are able to conjure up more than one meal item at a time and is also large enough to cook your chicken perfectly. Use the large basket on its own or use the two smaller baskets side-by-side if you want to prepare foods separately.
The stainless steel design is attractive, solid and fits in with most modern kitchens of today so no need to hide it away in the cupboard, you can simply leave it on your countertop if you prefer. Fitted with a stainless steel lid that has a viewing window makes checking on cooking progress that much easier while protecting you from any splatter that could potentially burn you. Another great feature is the durable mesh baskets that are each fitted with collapsible cool grip handles and are dishwasher safe as well. Lifting hot food out of the boiling oil is easy and the baskets can be hooked onto the side of the fryer while working with your food. Space is also not an issue with the Waring Pro DF280 as it is able to manage 2.3 pounds of food and has a 1-gallon oil container with the added bonus of enamel coating on the inside of the container which makes cleaning all the more easier. A really great addition to the oil container is the pouring spout so no spillages when removing the oil after cooking.
There have been a few reviews indicating or rather suggesting that the large basket should have two hooks instead of one since it could have the tendency to fall over if food is not balanced in the basket properly however, that is easily rectified if you place the food in the baskets correctly in the first place. At times the oil has cooled when the heater stops once optimum temperature has been reach and was also easily rectified by simply swirling the oil around a bit to get it heating again. There are far more pro’s than con’s to this deep fryer and you only have to look at other reviews to have this confirmed for you.
Two other features that make this deep fryer valuable are the 30 minute auto timer as well as the easy to use thermostat controls. All round the Waring Pro DF280 works well, leaves food less greasy, cooks to perfection and has all the design features and cooking features one needs to produce a great tasting meal or snack no matter what the occasion.
