The fryer also comes with a rise and fall basket which takes the stress out of accessing your food. I don't know about you, but if I can save a few minutes every time I cook with a fryer because of a feature like this one, I'll buy it.

Drawbacks of the Russell Hobbs 24580 Digital Deep Fryer

Despite the fact that this fryer is very big, the basket that accompanies it is actually small. This means that preparing only one batch may not be enough at times especially when there are guests around.

General Overview

However, if you are buying this for yourself or two people, then the basket should serve you gallantly. Even when using with family, you shouldn’t need more than two batches to get the desired size you need.
