Of course, the fryer with the indispensable thermometer is of excellent quality. And the thermometer itself is of excellent quality, because it follows swiftly the ups and downs of the oil. A special note on the packaging too. The fryer is wrapped with a rigid type of air-filled small plastic tubes. Strong and rigid for resisting the ill-treatment by couriers. The packaging even could resist a hammer blow. Rest assured, with this kind of package pots wont arrive in a battered and tattered state. Strongly recommended.
