A sort of new fryer that uses drops as opposed to vats of oil to fry cut vegetables and frozen food. It's safer and less messy than a conventional deep fryer as it covers up completely and you don't have to deal with hot boiling oil. You also don't have to worry about changing the oil and throwing away used oil. However, you can't deep fry batter or larger items in this.
The capacity is enough to feed a family of four and crisps up fries nicely, a nice addition for the urban family. Especially if you have kids around.
