Tefal Deep Fryer

Guest blog by Christopher from King’s Lynn.

The Tefal Uno FF203840 is a lightweight, compact and easy to use deep fat fryer that will feed a family of four without breaking the bank. Don’t let the small dimensions (approximately 280mm x 290mm x 240mm/11″x 11.5″x 9″) fool you, with a basket capacity of 1kg, you can cook for the entire family in one go.

Featuring a useful viewing window, you can check on the progress of your next meal without opening the lid. This is both practical and a useful safety precaution as you no longer run the risk of being splashed with hot oil during the cooking process. This is also further enhanced by the auto-locking lid which is released by pressing a button that releases the catch. Proving that they always keep your safety in mind, Tefal have included an insulating ‘Cool Wall’ inside the deep fat fryer so that, even when the product is hot, accidental contact with the plastic exterior of the appliance won’t result in burnt skin.

The addition of a simple and adjustable thermostat allows you to select the appropriate temperature for the food you are cooking, ranging from 150-190°celsius/302°fahrenheit-374°fahrenheit, and minimises room for error. Meanwhile the indicator light, which is built into the sturdy on/off button, switches off when the desired temperature is reached and ensures that you won’t over or under-cook your food.

Cleaning is also as effortless as possible with a removable lid and a dishwasher-friendly frying basket for a speedy clean up. The handle also folds down to make it easy to store, taking up less space, and helping with its portability. A nice added point to make is that Tefal are committed to making this product easy to repair for up to 15 years giving you that essential peace of mind.
