Three baskets are included, so you have the ability to fry two different foods side by side—fish n’ chips or chicken strips and onion rings—or use the jumbo basket to make enough shrimp to feed a crowd.

An immersed heating element creates even, fast temperatures and an adjustable timer with an audible tone allows you to be in control. Temperatures are fully adjustable for precise cooking temperatures, and the viewing window on the lid, power and ready lights make sure you never miss a beat.

Summary

The Hamilton Beach Professional-Style Electric Deep Fryer is excellent for large groups—family dinners, tailgates, or other gatherings. It can hold up to 12 cups of food and has a 3-liter oil capacity.

Two small baskets and one large basket is included with purchase, so you are able to fry two types of food side by side, or use the large basket for frying a large amount of food at once. Made of aluminum, this unit is fairly large at 14.75 x 15.63 x 11 inches and 12.95lbs, but all parts separate for easy cleaning and storage.

An immersed heating element at 1800 watts and precise temperature controls make the correct temperature achievable, but maintaining the temperature may be an issue.

Comparisons

An alternative aluminum fryer, the T-fal FR4049 Family Pro 3-Liter Oil Capacity Electric Deep Fryer also boasts adjustable temperatures, ready light, and easy assembly with a viewing window on the lid. The heating element quickly recovers and temperature is a bit easier to maintain with this unit.

The T-fal FR4049 Family Pro 3-Liter Oil Capacity Electric Deep Fryer only comes with one basket, however, and if you frequently use your fryer to make multiple kinds of foods, this may not be the best choice.

If you are looking to cook two kinds of food specifically, the Secura 1700-Watt Stainless-Steel Triple Basket Electric Deep Fryer is another option. It can hold up to 4.2 liters of oil, which is a bit more than the Hamilton Beach Professional-Style Deep Fryer model.

Like the Hamilton Beach Professional Style Deep Fryer, the Secura 1700 Watt Stainless Steel Deep Fryer also comes with three fry baskets—one large and two for frying two different foods at once. Its heating element is a little less powerful at 1700watts.

Verdict

For dinner parties, the big game, or any other gathering with a lot of hungry folks, the Hamilton Beach Professional-Style Electric Deep Fryer is a go-to. Modeled after commercial deep fryers and created for easy at-home use, this unit is a new classic.

If you find yourself wishing you could fry two kinds of food at once, or just make enough fries for the table to snack on, the Hamilton Beach Professional-Style Electric Deep Fryer’s three baskets can help you achieve that goal quickly and cleanly.

12 cups of food is ready in minutes, and a ready light, viewing window and adjustable timer with audible tone won’t let you forget about it. Parts are easy to clean and assemble, and are dishwasher safe. This is a great item to break out for parties or events.
