Good price OP

On This Morning yesterday they did a pretty basic review of deep fat fryers (Argos own brand, Russell Hobbs, Sage, Delonghi and this one from memory) and this Lakeland one was their preferred option due to the compact size, ease of cleaning, etc...

good find op, heat added

Thanks OP and dazbang. Purchased

Fact time....'course, 52% of you might choose to ignore ;o)

1/5th of all domestic fires are caused by deep fat fryers.
Over 4000 people a year are injured by deep fat fryers (reported injuries).
Deaths from domestic fires accounted for around 260 deaths in 2015; we can extrapolate and suggest that deep fat fryers cause around 50+ deaths a year.

I thought deep fat fryers had safety cut-outs? Are you sure you're not referring to an on the hob (non-electrical) chip pan?

Not deep fat fryers, deep fat pans.

I wonder what Mary Berry would think of this... (_;)

Wrong, that would be Chip Pans (basically a pot on the hob full of oil which you boil). This is an electric fryer.

Because Britain isn't obese enough already.

Great spot, now just need an offer on mars bars.

Genuine question - what relevance does this fact have? There are many things that are "bigger killers".

or rather you're partially Wrong, I'm partially 'Right'?

Anyway, I'm not here to argue - it was a simple statement of what I had found on a reputable website. There's safer ways to get yer munchies in after the pub!

It adds some perspective to your chip pan scaremongering!

Hope you live in a bungalow!

No such thing as an easy clean deep fat fryer, unless you want to waste hours of your time scrubbing the fat off, it's easier to throw it away and buy a new one once they get really bad.

Hardly comparable given a) the figures I posted are for domestic situations only, b) even Brits, top of the tables for obesity in Europe, would use stairs more often than a deep fat fryer

Fry yourself to death. I would not buy it, even it was free. Looks like people here have no qualms about their health. Fried food is the worst food you can eat. Unless you operate a fried food shop like KFC, why would you buy this stuff. Also there so many air fryers these days which use very little oil, why would you want to eat food full of oil and kill yourself?

Wow oO

Yes, why not poison yourself with noxious fumes from hot plastic instead. Bought one of those plastic air fryers and it stunk the kitchen out for over day with an awful chemical smell which tainted the food from the heated up plastic it was cooked in. Nasty stuff (no it wasn't faulty and yes it was washed and rinsed thoroughly prior to use - just the nature of it, apparently) Forget that. It went straight back. Principle idea behind them is good but the construction is all wrong.

​Sorry I did not know the plastic fryers were so bad. I don't own either. Plastic can also contain Bpa like carcinogenic substances which leach out at higher temperature so not healthy either.

Because it tastes damn good :P , everything in moderation with exercise and there is no problem Homemade chips you can't beat

Everything is bad for you to a certain extent did you not here about the American who died from too many carrots ??

Nothing wrong with the occasional fried food, get over yourself.

Do you ever get fries when you go for a pub lunch? Ever get KFC?
These are all friend foods which are fine once a week. If you don't want to pay for it in a restaurant whats wrong with home cooked chips etc?

It is 2.99 postage. Does anyone have the code please for the £3 saving or do I have to order a catalogue first to get it. Thanks.

Great deal - ordered!
