I love my DeLonghi D455D2 dual zone. It's great on all accounts except one: does not heat the oil over 360 degrees (I like higher for my chicken wings) but otherwise and for everything else - it's super! ;)
Do perform a seach as advised, though. There are lots of pros and cons to these things. Best to be well informed when purchasing. ;)

I certainly appreciate your quest for a decent deep fryer. These things need to be built pretty well to withstand the conditions that we demand of them. Last thing you want is to heat many quarts of oil to boiling point in a flimsy structure...very scary! Here is a link to a nice Commercial Deep Fryer that I recommend highly. Good luck and happy cooking!
He he heh, I love the new guys. This thread is from 2005, i hope he found his fryer by now. Sorry abanynini, nothing personal. I was here cause I like a good deep fryer as well. Started in a fish and chips place.
