After more than 15 years of loyal service, we finally had to replace our old DeLonghi Roto Deep Fryer and were delighted to find that they still made them...with improvements. It took us a while to find what we consider the perfect replacement, which is the DeLonghi D895UX. It has all the features we were looking for...adjustable temp, oil drain, rotating basket, dishwasher safe parts, comfortable size for use and storage, AND it's quiet as a mouse! Don't know if our old one had gotten noisier with time and use, or had always been so noisy, but we had to keep checking to assure ourselves this one was on and operating because it is so quiet! Took much less time than recommended for our fries...but it was a fairly small batch. Novices should understand that portions have more to do with the recommended times than actual product. Still, it was quicker than our old fryer. Thought it was going to be difficult to say goodbye to old faithful, but after one use of our new DeLonghi we were able to "retire" the old one with a smile.
