This little fryer is GREAT! The metal is nice and heavy (Thick) I don't have any problems with the lid falling off (As long as I align the small gap in the tab on the pan) The size is perfect for me. I really like the drain feature in the lid and the lid design that curves in to minimize splatter. I have used this for shrimp, tots, tempura shrimp and wings (wings seam to take a long time) so far so good.
My home uses lard, so when it's not in use it's hardened, but until now it was left in an appropriate pot left over. However, this pan has an oil drainer and a lid, which makes it very convenient to store as it is. The thermometer is not necessary at first glance because the gas stove has automatic temperature adjustment, but I found it interesting because you can study the temperature during cooking.
Fast delivery and received in good condition. Seller packed strong bubble bag to protect the pot. Very good quality service and good pot. Must buy and recommended.
