Hamilton Beach Professional Deep Fryer with Cool Touch: A User-Friendly Experience

Sometimes, we all want just the basics, with added safety features for occasional clumsy moments—who hasn’t accidentally bumped a hot appliance in the kitchen? The Hamilton Beach Professional Deep Fryer with Cool Touch is the perfect combination of compact size and versatility.

At a relatively compact 8.58 x 11.38 x 13.94 inches, this fryer won’t take up too much precious counter space, but can still hold 8 cups of oil and can cook up to 6 cups of French fries. The Hamilton Beach Professional Deep Fryer with Cool Touch boasts several safety features that go above and beyond: cool-touch sides prevent burning your hands, a breakaway magnetic power cord that will reduce the impact if the cord is bumped away from the wall.

Finally, the Hamilton Beach Professional Deep Fryer with Cool Touch allows you to lift the basket and drain the oil from food while the lid is still closed to prevent spilling. Super user-friendly, compact and still able to create substantial portions of your favorite fried foods, the Hamilton Beach Professional Deep Fryer is the best of all worlds.

Features

First and foremost, the safety features of the Hamilton Beach Professional Deep Fryer make using it an easy, seamless experience. Made of stainless steel for even heat distribution, but with cool touch technology on the sides, accidentally burning your hands is a thing of the past.

A breakaway cord prevents accidentally knocking over the fryer if it is accidentally bumped off the counter. For less mess and splatter-free frying, the Hamilton Beach Professional Deep Fryer allows you to lift the basket and drain oil without opening the lid.

With 8 cups of oil capacity and the ability to make up to 6 cups of food, and all at a compact size for easy cleaning and storage.

Summary

The Hamilton Beach Professional Deep Fryer with Cool Touch is one of the safest and most reliable fryers on the market—fears of burning your hands, splattering oil or accidentally knocking over the fryer if the cord is bumped all become fears in the past. With cool touch stainless steel, the ability to lift the basket and drain the oil while the lid is still on, a breakaway cord

Its compact design and deceptively small size pack a serious punch: up to 8 cups of oil and 6 cups of food are all in one space-saving fryer. You can monitor the progress of your food through a window on the top of the fryer, and an indicator light reminds you when it is ready.

However, do be aware that this model does not have an adjustable timer with an audible tone, it is very small with only one basket, and there is a fairly limited temperature range. If you’re looking for a very basic, safe and reliable deep fryer, The Hamilton Beach Professional Deep Fryer is both easy to use and a great value.

Comparisons

For a slightly higher-end version fryer, the Cuisinart CDF-100 Compact 1.2 Liter Deep Fryer in Brushed Stainless Steel offers a similar space-saving size and user-friendly simplicity. Like the Hamilton Beach Professional Deep Fryer with Cool Touch, it holds up to 1.1liters of oil and ¾ pound capacity in the fry basket.

It does not have the same cool touch sides, so be aware of burning your hands. A higher-end die cast bowl with attached heating element allows for faster heat-up time, and a 3-year limited warranty is available as well.

For a very basic fryer, the Presto 05450 DualDaddy Electric Deep Fryer, delivers similar results to the Hamilton Beach Professional Deep Fryer.

A simple, bucket style design, aluminum non-stick finish and no controls, the Presto 05450 DualDaddy Electric Deep Fryer may not be ideal for those who need to control temperature or require a basket, since a slotted spoon and dual compartments contribute to a very stripped-down design.

Verdict

The Hamilton Beach Professional Deep Fryer with Cool Touch is one of the most versatile kitchen tools on the market, and for its small size, it delivers both in portions and in safety features.

If you have the occasional clumsy moment, or if you’ve had trouble with kitchen appliances in the past, the Hamilton Beach Professional Deep Fryer allows you total control and space-saving size in one package.

For such a minimal size and design, portion sizes are up to you: from 1 serving snacks for one to up to 6 cups of fries or chicken tenders for your next party, the Hamilton Beach Professional Deep Fryer with Cool Touch is a user-friendly experience.
