Oster 3-Liter Cool-Touch Deep Fryer
1-1/2-Pound Food Capacity — Bring the Party Home
Enjoy restaurant-quality fried food from the comfort of home with Oster’s professional-style CKSTDFZM53 deep fryer. By filling the inner pan to its maximum oil capacity of 3 liters, the deep fryer can accommodate batches up to 1-1/2 pounds of food–perfect not only for dinners at home with the family, but also for entertaining a crowd when gathering with friends for poker night, the big game, a birthday celebration, or other festive occasion. Make small to large batches of anything from French fries or fried tofu to onion rings, mixed vegetables, mozzarella sticks, doughnuts, and more.
High-Quality Professional Design
The deep fryer comes equipped with a 1700-watt immersion heating element, which means crispy and delicious results every time, as well as fast oil recovery for quickly making a second batch. The unit’s generously sized frying basket provides a large, cool-touch handle for safely lowering the basket of food down into the hot oil or raising it up for draining once the food has thoroughly cooked. Use the viewing window in the fryer’s lid to safely keep an eye on the cooking process.
A large control panel on the front of the deep fryer makes frying food a simple pleasure, even for the most novice home cook. Simply turn the knob to adjust the thermostat from off to 265 degrees F at its lowest temperature to 375 degrees F at its hottest setting.
The second dial rotates to set the timer up to 30 minutes. The timer also provides an audible signal bell to indicate when the cooking time has ended, at which point the fryer turns itself off automatically (a useful feature for a busy party host). A red “power” indicator light and a green “ready” indicator light offer extra at-a-glance convenience, while a simple push of the button releases the unit’s locking lid.
Additional highlights include cool-touch housing for added safety, dual filters in the lid to help minimize smoke and cooking odors, a SureRelease break-away cord, and removable and dishwasher-safe parts–including the pan, basket, and lid–for quick cleanup at the end of the night. Weighing 10-2/3 pounds, the deep fryer measures 14 inches deep by 16-1/2 inches wide by 12-8/9 inches high and carries a one-year limited warranty.
