Nice, stylish & fast

As with the others I agree the cable is a little short and odd that it comes out the front, but there is a channel underneath to feed it to the back. Not sure why it's marketed as 'digital' as it's only the timer that is digital and nothing else. Maybe they should re-name the product or make the temperature options digital. In all, a great product, gets to temp quickly & does what it says on the tin... cooks good chips!

does the element sit inside the bowl? seems odd to have the oil directly on the element and wires

2 Answers

The previous answer from Argos answers is either wrong or I have been supplied with a different model of Russel Hobbs 17842, because there is no way it can be used other than with the heating element located inside the bowl.


Thank you for your question.

After looking into your query, I can inform you that the element of the Russell Hobbs 17942 Deep Fat Fryer - Stainless Steel is not located inside the bowl. It is separate to the bowl and is located beneath it.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

Can you have the basket lifted out of the oil with the lid still closed?

I want a deep fat fryer where you can be draining the chips in the fryer with the lid closed.

This one will allow you to do this


Yes, you certainly can. One has to be careful, however, because the basket tends to get displaced (off the hook) sometimes on re-immersion...


do you have to purchase replacement oil filters?

The oil filter seems to be permanent...
