Magimix Pro 500 Deep Fryer
Deep fat fryer
Ordered this product online and it arrived swiftly as promised. However, the filter lid was missing and now I have to repackage the fryer and return it to my nearest store who do not have any others in stock. Disappointed as I was banking on using it this weekend.

Pleased that most of this item can be put in the dishwasher to clean, but frustrated with the handle. Am I being stupid? When I tip the basket to get the chips out the basket is swinging back on the handle - result hot oil on my arm. The handle is different from the picture - if its been changed, it wasn't the best change.

Great deep fryer
Great design, good price and good results. So far the chips have been great and it is so easy to use. Capacity is perfect for us.

compact & effective
small footprint, but deep. takes a lot of oil though, 4lts, and if using groundnut oil is an expensive oil change. nice to use, good temperature control , best I'v used out of a professional kitchen.....perfect chips with ease.

This is a very good deep fat fryer. We've tried others but didn't enjoy the finished product. French fries are the best I've ever cooked and make steak and chips night a real treat. I haven't fried anything else yet but think the results will be the same; the doughnuts from the recipe book are next on the list. If there is one thing that lets it down, it’s the lack of a lid with a filter, to reduce the smell of fried food in the kitchen. I put it on a baking tray, on the hob, under the extractor which works OK but isn't ideal.
The click and collect is also very efficient and avoids the disappointment of turning up at the store to find they don't have it in stock.

Smell (I used Vegetable oil as stated)
Im dissapointed ...The Magimix Pro 500 Deep Fryer french model has a filter .. do they think we like the smelll of oil over our house. My eyes were smarting and I want to know if the filter can be fitted to the English Model we have just bought... If not why not ?
Ive use this item twice and however nice the chips are the smell is horrible.
We bought this item having read the reviews.

I bought this fryer to replace my old Magimix and find it has been re-designed. It is now wider and shorter, making it easier to lift, and although it only holds the same amount of oil as the old one, it seems to accommodate a lot more food. The timer is also a good idea, making it impossible to inadvertently leave it switched on for more than half an hour. I would recommend this fryer - it makes gorgeous chips - and is also easy to keep clean, as all the parts except the electrical unit can be put in the dishwasher. Amazing!!

Every kitchen should have one
What a fantastic pieice of kitchen equipment, we simply can,t stop making home made chips !!! Its so easy to use very simple indeed. Not yet experimented with other foods but it simply makes great chips and roast potatoes just like I remember from school. Anyone thinking of purchasing one should just go for it ....I contemplated for weeks and now wished I'd done it earlier.
