6 Reasons For for Choosing the Elite EDF-3500

Adjustable Thermostat

The Elite EDF-3500 has an adjustable thermostat (as does the Swan SD6060N), whereas the Brentwood DF-720, the Presto 05411 and the Tower T17023 do not have this feature. More ...

'Adjustable Thermostat' denotes whether the fryer has the ability to adjust the temperature the oil is heated to while cooking.

Different temperatures will cook the food at different rates, and some more delicate foods require cooler temperatures to be cooked properly without burning.

A Lot Bigger Oil Capacity

The Elite EDF-3500 has an oil capacity of 3.9L, however the Brentwood DF-720 and the Tower T17023 are both only 2.2L capacity fryers (1.7L smaller) and the Presto 05411 and the Swan SD6060N are both only 1.5L capacity fryers (2.4L smaller). More ...

'Oil Capacity' denotes how much oil the fryer can hold at once, measured in litres.

The bigger the capacity of the fryer, the more food can be cooked at once.

Removable Bowl

The Elite EDF-3500 has a removable bowl, however the Brentwood DF-720, the Presto 05411, the Swan SD6060N and the Tower T17023 do not have this feature. More ...

'Removable Bowl' denotes whether the inner bowl of the fryer is removable.

A removable bowl allows for far easier cleaning post-cooking.

Viewing Window

'Viewing Window' denotes whether the fryer has a viewing window on it or not.

Viewing windows allow you to easily check the progress of your food, so you can stop it if it is close to overcooking.

Better Kagoo Score

'Capacity' denotes how much food the fryer can hold at once, measured in kilograms.

The bigger the capacity of the fryer, the more food can be cooked at once.

Does Not Have a Low Fat Frying Function

The Elite EDF-3500 does not have a low fat frying function (As do the the Brentwood DF-720 and the Swan SD6060N), but the Presto 05411 and the Tower T17023 have this feature. More ...

A low-fat frying function serves to fry food using only a fraction of the oil normally used.

Because it uses far less oil, a low-fat frying option produces far healthier food than standard frying.
