Deep fryer

I am thinking about getting a deep fryer and have read many of the past threads here and on other boards and there does not seem to be a consensus number one pick. I am down to 3 models all of which seem to have shortcomings:

The T-Fal easy clean - Downside from many reviews I have read online is that it never gets hot enough and drops rapidly in temperature.

A Delonghi Exlcusivo (I think - I saw it at Home Outfitters - I live in Canada). The reviews for delonghi deep fryers seem all over the place so I am not certain about this one at all.

The Waring Pro. This is the one I am leaning towards. Most reviews seem to note the 1800 Watts power but some say it still does not retain heat as well as it should and that the odour is not good (the TFal apparently has a charcoal filter).

So, what advice do people have on these above? I have read many people praising the TFal - do people thinks its ok temperature wise?

Sadly, old reliable consumer reports does not have ratings for deep fryers.

Cheers and many thanks!
