Pros:Possibly good for a few very simple items, like appetizers.
Cons:Oil cools down immediately and recovery rate is slow so the food absorbs oil.
The Waring Pro is promoted as a professional deep fryer capable of handling more than 3 pounds. This is laughable! Three pounds of what?
This fryer is a total light weight capable of frying only the most delicate of food items such as a few shrimp, veggies, or a donut or two. Tempura is not recommended as the batter must be chilled to such a low temp the recipe will fail completely due to it's poor temperature recovery rate!
It will not cook a basket of chicken without it absorbing too much oil and rendering it inedible. It will only fry a batch of French fried potatoes in proper 2-step fashion for about 1.5 servings and will take forever to do so, thus your timing must be precisely recalculated after considerable practice.
