Outstanding Features of Swan SD6080N Square Fryer

Variable Temperature Control:

The unit comes with a variable temperature to give you complete control over your cooking. If you don't already know, different foods require specific temperature settings to cook properly, which is why most of the fryers come with a range of temperature selections that you can choose from. You need to know the right temperature at which your food cooks to perfection to avoid overheating and overcooking. This requires a couple of practices. Fortunately, the Swan SD6080N Square Fryer allows you to experiment with your food without losing its taste or texture. Also, quite a majority of recipes come with temperature specifications and the duration for which you should cook. This means that you will not have to find that out through the trial and error method, which is not only annoying but also time-consuming.

With the ability to adjust the fryer’s temperature to suit the kind of food you are frying, you will be able to prepare your fries just like a pro without necessarily going through the learning curve. The four gear temperature function on the SD6080N makes it easy for you to achieve these results.

Compactness:

At first glance, the Swan SD6080N Square Fryer, 2.5L looks both elegant and pleasing. It is compact and comes with ample space to serve two people with a single batch. Furthermore, you can make multiple batches within a short time because it is relatively fast in frying compared to its equivalents in the market. This unit is a handy replacement for your oven given that it is both consistent and can help you avoid the boring aspects of cooking associated with using the oven.

Safe-Lock Lid:

The fryer comes with a safe-lock lid which enables you to lock the unit when frying. This is quite handy especially if you have toddlers involved in the cooking as it reduces the chances of their exposure to hazards such as steam and sizzling oil.

Customer Reviews and Ratings

One of the advantages of this unit according to most of the reviews is its ability to control the production of post-fry odour. The accumulation of these smells during the frying process is almost inevitable for most of the fryers out there.

Fortunately, the Swan SD6080N Square Fryer, 2.5L has a way of keeping the unpleasant smell at bay. For this reason, you may want to invest your money in such a unit. The Swan SD6080N Square Fryer’s price tag is quite friendly, a more compelling reason why you should get yourself this unit. You will get the value for your money while saving costs in hundreds of dollars.

If you have a large family, this might not be suitable for you. And my definition of a large family includes more than two adults with children. If you are with a few kids and needing something that can be used to wipe up a quick breakfast or dinner when everyone is tired, this will serve you.

This unit is only suitable for a small family that comprises of a maximum of two adults and 2-3 kids. If you are a family that is bigger than this, then the Swan SD6080N Square Fryer, 2.5L is probably not the right option for you unless you do not mind preparing multiple batches.

The power cable on the Swan SD6080N Square Fryer is short. Therefore, you have to place the unit close to the power source to avoid having to move it every time you need to use it. Most of the people will not want a frying unit with a short cable for various reasons. For instance, placing it close to the power source will affect their kitchen arrangement. For this reason, you should probably consider this factor before purchasing a fryer. This will go a long way in saving you the trouble of moving it around every time.

Most reviewers complain that the bowl on the unit is not removable. This means that you will encounter difficulties draining oil from the unit after frying. However, it is worth noting that the bowl not being removable does not affect the ease of cleaning this fryer. It is also quite a relief that this unit heats up faster than a couple of others in the market. The absence of a filter in this unit is a disappointing thing for most customers. This is because its absence makes the unit vulnerable to condensation which negates the benefits of using it instead of a traditional frying pan. Fortunately, you can do a lot more than just chips on the unit. We have reviewed some fryers that are not suitable for other food items apart from chips.

Conclusion

Imagine being able to prepare your own torpedo prawns, mozzarella sticks, doughnuts, spring rolls, samosas, fish or chicken, crispy noodles, onion rings, tupella, and your favourite chips using the same machine. Although it will require a great investment of time in the kitchen, it cannot compare to the saving you will make after abandoning regular take-outs.
