Hamilton Beach Cool Touch Deep FryerThe Cool Touch Deep Fryer may fool you with its compact shape. I thought it was a bread maker when I first saw one. The design is rather clever and the performance consistent with this model.

Once you get past the fact that even deep fryers are made almost entirely of plastic nowadays, you'll find some handy features within to make the experience a pleasant one. While compact, this fryer has a full size basket to accommodate larger portions. The basket sits wide in the pot rather than lengthwise, adding to the trim shape of this model. It holds two liters of oil within its nonstick pot. The pot is removable and dishwasher safe for easy cleaning. The fryer lid shuts during cooking to keep splattering at bay-- although even with the integral filter, don't expect to avoid the smell of deep frying while using this.

The fold-down handle on the fryer basket is the most clever feature, and makes it really easy to store this out of the way until you need it for a fry-up. The numerous safety features are well intentioned, although one tends to impact the frying experience in a negative way. The cord is short, and connects to the unit by a magnet meant to break away if pulled. Unfortunately, the magnet disconnects so readily it can make keeping the power going to the fryer a challenge. Also, it has been reported that this takes a rather long time to preheat the oil. Not a problem if you plan ahead. The controls include a cooking timer and an auto shutoff feature, along with a power and ready light.
