From Hammacher Schlemmer this fryer can make 2lbs. of fried food with just one table spoon of oil. It has an internal convection oven that heats up to 338º F. It evenly circulates the hot air that cooks chicken wings, shrimps, French fries or spring rolls in the same way as the conventional deep fryers. Food revolves slowly around non-stick basin and while this is done, a paddle automatically mixes ingredients. The way the food is cooked in this fryer, almost all the oil is absorbed by the food, leaving no oily mess for you to manage. Though it has an oven, it does not require any preheating and it is all dishwasher safe.
