The picture doesn't do it justice. It looks pretty cool. It works quite well. And it's almost entirely dishwasher-safe.
So far today, taquitos, tater tots, and onion rings.
I am pleased.
It does have some small failings. The volume of oil available to actually put food into is somewhat smaller than I'm used to. The lid can't be put on until after the basket is lowered into the oil. But these are both dealable.
