Big is best
I've been looking for a big fryer to get them meals done quicker, well my wait is over... love this product easy to use & set up. The only issue is it stands tall in bench and short person like myself might struggle to see in the window, but a little step ladder fixed that

Its perfect cooking
Big cooker with fast cooking.
Nice and tasty food comes from this cooker.
Oil draining container is excellent.
The oil filter is great you can re use the oil.
Its also easy to clean.
The cooking temperature is good as well.
I got one as a wedding present,
We have used it many times already
Love this fryer!!
I honestly love this fryer i used to have a much smaller one that was really good but i would have to keep waiting for my first batch to finish before putting a second batch because you cant fit that much in there but with this fryer its so big that once i’m done with my first batch i’m done cooking .I also love that this comes with an oil box which makes it easy to clean after frying and filters out any crumbs while also letting me reuse my oil and its so fast so i don’t have to wait forever just to eat like a couple others i’ve used

Great size home deep fryer!
Needed a new deep fryer due to moving into a new apartment. It is totally worthwhile paying the extra money for the auto oil drain feature. It is bulky but easy to move around and store particularly as oil is locked away safe so won’t spill.

Fit for purpose
Works well, wish it got hotter and had a better heat up time once food went in. Oil cleaning is OK, only paid an additional $10 for the feature vs the similar breville without. Wouldn't justify much more than that. Also a big unit comparatively, may not be worth the extra storage space for some.

It was good while it lasted, edit: still great!
I deep fry food very rarely and do have an old (still working) Sunbeam deep fryer, but the fact that this will filter your oil was what tempted me to buy it,
Especially as I don't use it often, I have trouble storing the oil. (even though it advises to keep it in a cool place, not in the fridge I have made room for it in the fridge and it has been happily sitting in there). The the last time I used it (and the second time, ever) was in March. It worked as advertised, I was very happy. I filtered the oil and stored it in the fridge, and cle...

Absolutely getting the fried fix fixed!
We have had the Tefal Oleoclean Pro for about a month now and have used it every other week (or try to make an excuse to fry something). Before buying this, I was contemplating a cheap $60 fryer but after reading the other reviews from the others who have bought it, I was pretty sold. Like one of the other users, I reckon there should be a green light to show users when the oil is ready (as the red light turning off to indicate the oil is heated isn't really intuitive and can also be hard to see in bright areas) and the red light to indicate th...e oil being heated. We used to cook our fries in the air fryer but am using the deep fryer instead as it taste so much better being bathed in oil. We noticed that some batters do leave more sediments and we have been experimenting with different batters and found a Korean batter that works a treat with the food we like to fry. We keep the frying temperature at 180 degrees and the food has come out amazing. Last weekend, we found frozen soft shell crabs and decided to give it a go... it came out amazing so we reckon another 3 months, we would have recouped the cost of this deep fryer by cooking ourselves instead of eating out. We absolutely love how easy it is to clean by just having the oil drip into the container and then removing the basket and oil tray with no mess. I've not put it in a dishwasher as I just rinse it to remove excess batter and the sediment from the oil tray. This was one of my earlier hesitations of buying a cheap $60 deep fryer so this $160 was well spent. The only criticism about this deep fryer is the bulk as it's slightly larger so make sure you check the space you have to keep it is large enough.
Excellent deep fryer
We recently bought a Tefal Oleoclean Pro deep fryer from The God Guys and are thrilled with ti. It filters the oil into a tank which sits in the bottom of the unit. The cooker has a timer and a digital thermostat which works well and it holds 4 litres of oil. It is not particularly cheap, but well worth it. The retail price is $279. We find that it cooks perfectly with the settings as set out in the user book which is written in any language one would wish for. Would highly recommend this unit to anyone wanting a cooker which filters the oil to keep it clean.
Great fryer with problems
We've had the last 3 versions of this fryer and all have been great, with one common problem. The lid is not dishwasher safe, the aluminium filter screen disintegrates in the dishwasher!
We sent a query to Tefal online and they didn't respond.
It's the only complaint about this device, so If we don't want splashes of hot oil spraying out of the now vacant filter opening, we'll have to buy a fourth
Love the filter.
Best fryer I've had obviously because of the filter option which honestly I find saves u money in the long run because u won't throw out your oil as often also it's built with good quality & all the part are dishwasher friendly except the element but you just wipe it down.
First fryer we've owned; very happy.
Easy to use, clean - no mess, just a little fuss (my fault). cleaning/ oil storage system worked as described. Lots of information/instructions included. I thought our fryer was DOA however I missed the power switch on the side of the control unit, despite it being described in the manual. Once I found the switch and made sure the control unit was seated fully down (it seems to have a hidden safety interlock switch to stop the unit turning on when its not in the fryer) we were away. Firm albeit light construction and dishwasher washable. We bou...ght this fryer after using a different fryer at a friends house. Our friend remarked that he would prefer a self cleaning system next time. I'm very happy with this fryer both in cooking and oil management terms. Worth a look if you're after this type of fryer.
Bought this unit from Harvey Norman on the 23/8/2014, used it infrequently, let's say 20 times, since then to Deep fry chips or squid. Went to use it on Saturday, no luck. Did what it said and pressed the reset button, Nothing. Gotta buy something else or go back to frying in the pan.
worked for while then blew up
While it worked it was excellent. I only used it once every few weeks, after having it for 18 months it has blown up. of course just after the warranty has finished. I would have thought should last longer than this. Fairly hopeless, only thing to do now is buy a new one, quite annoying.
nice product, grow love daily
love fried food, but hate cleaning work, also dislike possible messy job of storing the used cooking oil afterwards. Now everything is much easier. We can enjoy the crispy food, and leave the dirty job to dishwasher and drain the cooked oil into a nice container by one click. just love it
Excellent fryer - cleans the oil!
I bought this fryer hesitantly because the thought of deep frying food really put my off (however the urge for fresh hot churros won me over!). May I say this machine is awesome! It fries food quickly and evenly and when I place the fried food on paper towel there is hardly any oil left on the towels which is great. The feature I love the most is that when you're done frying you flick a switch and it will drain and filter the oil into a container which is stored underneath the machine. Another BIG plus for me is that every part (except for the element/power source) can go in the dishwasher!! Needless to say we use this quite often and I am impressed every time - I would highly recommend!
better than I thought when it was still new
having had the Tefal FR8040 Oleoclean Pro for some time now I believe I can now make statements about the product that are more realistic and not known when it was still new to me as most reviews are.
When I left oil in my previous Deep Fryer, you could still smell the (used) oil in the Fryer's vicinity, when using this Tefal machine and you put the used oil into the catchment underneath it and there is NO smell, so I can leave the FR8040 Oleoclean Pro sitting on the bench where it is used, no need to put it away with the used oil in a separate container.
Makes owning and using the Tefal Deep Fryer a great benefit

Appliance is not turning on
Pressed the reset button , nothing
Only second time used
And thoughts ?
Hello, we've had our Oleo fryer for about 9 months. recently it's started to come to a rolling boil AFTER we've removed the contents and even after it's been switched off. It's quite scary as the boil is quite intense. It feels like a fault in the system? Any ideas?
Hi , sounds faulty , I use mine a lot it has never done that , are you only using the oil that it advises? Anyway you said even continues boil when off so I would contact faults.
