Make cooking dinner for your family easy with this five-quart stainless-steel slow cooker. This versatile appliance can be used as a slow cooker or a deep fryer, and comes with a removable fry basket. It features stay-cool handles to avoid burns....more
Works exactly the way I wanted it. Fairly easy to setup. Easy to clean up compared to frying in an open skillet and having to clean the entire work space. Really nice feature, being able to put the food in the basket and closing the lid prior to lowering the basket into the oil, totally eliminates the danger of hot oil burns. Very happy with my purchase.
I like this pot very much. I've used it on the crock pot temps., and thouroughly enjoyed the end product. I especially like that it can be used as a warmer, and at full temp. for quick meals. My son likes it for his deep fry hot wings. You never let us down O.
this product works well as a deep fryer but it gets too hot to work as a slow cooker even under the low heat settings. the concept of a deep fryer/slow cooker is a good one but it does not work as designed in this product. definitely not work the money paid.

I love deep fry good and I have several deep fryers over the years. This deep fryer cooks food fast and crisp. The instructions that come with the unit are easy to read and understand. They explain the operation of the unit thoroughly. I like it.
Made in China and worked for about 10 min and never got past 165 degree F. before it stopped working. Yrs the magnetic plug on the unit is a bad design and may be most of the problem and the cord is way to short. I have not looked into this yet but I would recommend that for almost people not to buy this product. So that you know who I am I have worked on system controls and restaurant equipment most of my life so I am not a novice in this subject..Yes it is very lightly built and most definitely not worth the money spent.
Overall this is a poor/fair deep fryer. The basket fits to the handle separately so it constantly comes apart, which always seems to be when I am trying to take the food out of the oil, which causes (dangerous) splashing. It uses a LOT of oil to fill it, which I thought the large capacity would be a plus. However the round basket makes it awkward to cook things like corn dogs or fried chicken breast which are longer than the container. Also, the oil is very hard to strain out of the machine so I can re-use the oil.
I don't use it as a "multi-cooker", but I don't think it would be really that great for multi-use, either. The quality is quite poor and the brand was some off brand that wasn't sold in any department stores or anything.
Usually I am very satisfied with my Overstock purchases, but this seems to be the exception.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Poor/Fair
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Somewhat accurate
I purchased this item and could not use it more than once, due to inner lining totally chipping off in to the food,
I have been very happy with all other items purchased from Overstock, but this item was terrible.
