Sage by Heston Blumenthal the Smart Fryer™, Silver

Product information

The Smart Fryer™ from Sage by Heston Blumenthal cleverly adjusts time and temperature to suit what you’re cooking, for perfect results every time.

This deep fryer hosts technology that adjusts time and temperature to suit what you're cooking with 7 preset functions. Simply select what you are cooking and this smart appliance will deliver the right temperature at just the right time.

The Smart Fryer™ also includes a twice fried chips function for restaurant quality chips and makes adjustments for fresh or frozen ingredients. And, the custom setting allows you to program your favourite dish too.

Key features:

  • Electronic thermostat
  • Mesh filter minimises cooking odours
  • Digital control
  • CoolZone technology prevents burning and extends oil life
  • Fresh/Frozen setting automatically changes the time or temperature, based on the selected cooking mode.

Q & As

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works as advertised I have never used a deep fat fryer before. Used for the first time today for twice cooked chips. Unsure of the type of potato used. I followed the instructions for twice cooked chips and the results were excellent. The centres of the chips were soft and the outsides were dark golden and crisp. I fail to see where other reviewers have got it so wrong. It is lucky that I didn't read the reviews before I purchased the fryer. I look forward I trying other foods in this gadget.. I wish however that Heston would now invent a handy oil filtering gadget so that I can filter the cold oil before its next use. 04 April 2015

Rated 1 out of 5 by Do NOT buy this product Not if you want restaurant quality, twice-fried chips. I will say upfront that I have not tried any other settings, so please bear this in mind when reading my review. I have had this "Smart" fryer for exactly 2 months and during that time I have gone through 12 litres of Oil (Peanut, Vegetable and Corn); numerous bags of potatoes (Desiree, Maris Piper and King Edward, amongst others); watched the videos on the Sage website and the Breville, Australia web site (This is a Breville product sold under licence with the Sage by Heston Blumenthal brand); I have cut chips from 2cm, 1.5 cm and 1 cm. I have cooked batches of 500gm and 1kg and set the times accordingly, as described in the cooking manual. I have gone onto 2nd fry immediately after the 1st, and after an hour in the fridge. Each and EVERY time the chips have burnt to a deeply unappetising dark brown burnt colour which frankly go straight into the bin each time. Persevered? Yes, you could say that! Today I finally called the Sage Customer Service line, whose ONLY suggestion was to try again with thicker chips! Well, tonight I did that and can you guess what happened? Perfect restaurant quality chips, crunchy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside? Erm no.... A panful of very thick, but burnt, chips. I think I have gone over and above the call of duty, dear readers, and tomorrow will be seeking a refund. (I will politely reject the offer of a new machine - I have developed an intolerance to Sage) 21 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Product Kept my eye on this extra ordinary fryer for a long time. Finally purchased it and oh my word, it was the best fryer I have ever owed. Looks amazing in my kitchen, works very well and fast. Food comes out crisp and fresh. I am really pleased with it hence purchased the whole sage range of products. Thank you Heston, there is a touch of class in my new kitchen. Love it. 21 April 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Exspensive Gimmick We already own The Smart Kettle and Toaster and have been more than pleased with them. So we were excited to get this home and try it straight away. The excitement soon faded after our 1st, 2nd, 3rd and final batch of Double Cooked Chips came out a blackened Crunchy Disaster. Sage Customer Services were excellent but what we had hoped would be a great and simple feature to use was in fact a gimmick which could be replicated using a much cheaper fryer. You really need to put in the effort to get the results that look so simple on the Demonstration Video. We have now returned it to John Lewis who were really helpful as ever. If you like a lot of prep work and you have the patience to keep persevering then this is for you. If not save your money and leave it to the professionals. 10 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by quality product Fryer is fast to heat up. Frozen foods do not cool the oil right down as the programme allows for frozen or fresh. Pleased with the programme which has cooked everything perfectly and there is a custom programme for cooking to your own preferences. A quality product well made. 14 January 2014
