The fryer is properly processed, even though the panel had slightly thicker may be. The 2300W are sufficient. If you actually fills the basket with maximum food, but you should set the temperature 10 degrees higher than you actually wanted. Ideal to a temperature of 180 degrees has been established. At temperatures below 170 degrees too much fat in the food remains, or is absorbed by the chips, croquettes, etc.. The filtering works fine. The filter lasts forever. So you need not buy more filters. We have frying oil can use 20 x loose until it was worthy of sharing. Some oil always disappears with the food and stuck even with the cleaning of the parts. So a small cup of oil needs to be refilled after each frying and filtering, which improves the quality of course raises slightly again. All parts except the heating element can be cleaned in the dishwasher and then look like new. However, the dishwasher should it be a bit larger. In the small devices for single-person households, the parts will not fit. It is not often, but on this unit I have really nothing to complain about serious. I would buy it immediately.
