Electric Fryer for Home Use

Sorry, I posted this in the wrong forum, Home Cooking. Just getting to know the place. Here goes again....

Electric Fryer for Home Use

Im having a tough time deciding between the T Fal EZ Clean 3.25 quart and the Waring Pro DF250 3.75 quart. Also in the running is the Aroma DF 212 5 quart and the Rival CZF745 Cool Zone 4.5 quart.

Aparently the T Fal EZ Clean is nearly the same as the Emeril Fryer but with a knob. I prefer the knob, though I like the styling of the Emeril better.

I guess what is comes down to is these questions.

The more oil the better to maintain temp after adding frozen ingredients, right? So bigger is better....however the wattage in an appliance like this is limited, so you also want a fryer that can bring its oil up quickly, so the smaller the better, right?

How handy is the EZ Clean drain feature on the T Fal?

Which has the simplest controls? The 2 knobs on the Waring pro look promising.

Does anyone have experience with any of these and would they share it?



PS - Ive used Commercial Gas Fryers extensively.
