► Skyline Deep Fryer
When you are frying at home, you want to keep the oil safely contained minimizing the mess. You can also feel very safe using a fryer rather than using a kadhai that is loaded with boiling hot oil. If you want to decide, whether this is the right choice for your kitchen or not, you may have to know more about this deep fryer from Skyline.
Pretty compact design: The skyline deep fryer is made of metal and looks pretty in its silver color. It is very compact and easily portable. This fryer can hold up to two liters of oil. It has an immersion heating unit that slides onto an attachment on the back of the base. It also has an adjustable temperature gauge. Further, it comes with a wire basket that is fitted with the handle. It also comes with a lid to close the fryer. When you are frying the food that needs the lid to be kept on while frying, this lid will come in handy.
Make frying more easy and healthy: This fryer allows you to follow your healthy practices of using less amount of oil for frying your food. Once the food is fried, it looks crispy outside but tender inside without much oil or with no oil at all. This also drains out the excess fat from the food. However, the manual of the product claims that it needs only a tablespoon of oil to fry the food but in real, it takes more than this to fry.
The skyline deep fryer is regarded as one of the best-seller deep fryers in India. It helps keep your kitchen counter-top stink-free by allowing you to clean it up easily than ever.
Features: The fryer has a basket or tank that comes with the minimum and maximum oil level markers or indicators. It reminds us that the oil level in the basket should never go below the minimum level mark and should never cross the maximum level mark. According to the general instructions of the fryer, the oil level should first be kept at the maximum level before placing any food in it for frying.
The fryer has a high wattage capacity of 2000 watts. It costs 2369 rupees currently on online websites. The manufacturer provides a one-year warranty for the product from the date of purchase of the product.
Verdict:: The skyline deep fryer is a good product for the price. If your kids are French fries lovers, then this will be your favorite electronic product in your kitchen. However, it still takes more time to clean up the oil spilled around it even though it is not as much as in the traditional frying method.
