As a perfectionist, I often find myself doing a lot of research on any product before buying. I do this by doing some sort of background checks on a prospective brand just to establish its past performance. Although this might seem like more effort than necessary, it actually has more benefits than you can imagine. For starters, I get to buy the best quality of products. Secondly, I become some sort of a consultant for my family and friends whenever they are about to make a purchase. I consider the research on the Delonghi Fryers brand and the company’s background to a good investment of both time and effort.

Stand out Features of the Product
Surround Heating System Technology:
Thanks to the Surround Heating System (SHS) technology; you can keep your fried food tasty and juicy inside but crispy on the outside. The technology uses both upper and lower heating to ensure your food cooks faster while saving that savoury texture and taste. Since the technology heats up below and above, there is an even circulation of air which makes your food to be evenly cooked.
In addition, the fryer features a timer that makes cooking easy. Although most people are familiar with the concept of using a timer on a kitchen appliance, they will hardly notice the absence of one. However, the absence of the timer can actually spell the difference between well-cooked, tasty food and one that is rancid. With this timer, you are leaving the harder part to the fryer while handling the smaller and easier part. Just put the food in the bowl, add oil specified by your recipe, set the appropriate temperature and you are good to go. The timer has a maximum of 99 minutes at which stage most of the food is done. You can not only save time when preparing food but also easily multitask which is handy especially when you are busy.
The bowl on the fryer is non-sticky so that removing food crumbs is easy and quick, thus making the cleaning task simple for you. Since no food will stick to the bottom after cooking, you can easily dedicate the cleaning task to your children when you are busy without worrying about them not cleaning the fryer appropriately.
The fryer equally features a removable paddle that allows you to cook delicate food like fish without resulting in the disintegration of the muscles and flesh after cooking. Moreover, you can carry out other tasks while the static paddle mixes the food for you.
The timer, lid, paddle, and bowl on the dryer are dishwasher safe too. And if you are a recipe fanatic who likes to try out new and unique recipes, you can get the Delonghi Recipe App, which you can easily download after getting your hands on the Delonghi FH1130 MultiFry.

One of the things that most people will find undesirable about the Delonghi FH1130 MultiFry is the fact that it doesn’t allow the user to have complete control over the cooking temperature and the time for the cooking. This in itself is not so much but the thought of using it as a dial on, dial off kind of machine makes me think it can do better. However, the fact that you can easily cook all kinds of fried foods and still retain their delicious tastes is a desirable quality about the Delonghi FH1130 MultiFry.
