3 large capacity nickel-plated baskets with plastic coated handles
This all-in-one 8.5 gallon Cajun Fryer by R & V Works features a diamond-plate side table and three nickel-plated, large-capacity baskets with plastic cool touch handles. The versatile, high performance, low maintenance propane fryer's burner design positions the fryer's heat source 6'' above the bottom of the oil reservoir at a 45 degree angle. This design allows food and batter to fall to the bottom of the reservoir and not collect on the burner. The oil at the bottom of the reservoir never gets hot enough to burn or scorch the batter, keeping it clean to reduce oil usage by up to 70% over comparable fryers. Constructed of durable carbon steel with a high temp charcoal finish. 8.5-Gallon Fryer holds three 13-1/4" x 5-5/8" x 5-5/8" baskets. Made in USA.

This is hands down the best fryer I have ever used. No burning of the oil, last piece of fish tastes like the first. I do numerous charity fish fry events every year, serving 500 or more at times, and the Cajun Fryer has worked flawlessly.
I did have some issues with the shipper (big brown truck one) and had some damage to my first unit. Called Robert at R & V works and even though it wasn't his fault there was damage, he took care of it immediately. Their service is absolute top notch. Great company, great product.

Being one to entertain frequently, one of the most demanded items I serve is chicken wings. We usually serve 5 to 6 flavors, so quantity is the factor. This unit allows me to fry 20+ lbs. at a time. Great for anything you could imagine frying, chicken, turkey, seafood, etc. Everyone that has seen this fryer in use is dying to find out where I found it. You will not be disappointed, worth every cent paid!!!

Purchased this fryer for both business and personal use. 8.5 gallons/32 litres and 3 high quality baskets.
Excellent construction and if you're thinking that it's flimsy thin steel it's far from it. First off this beast weights in well over 100 lbs and very thick steel plates used.
Had a party for 20 people and food of choice were chicken wings. Cooked up 8 pounds of wings at a time and took 10 minutes to get them nice and tender crisp. I had 2 larger fry baskets and used them instead. Turned the gas up high and only lost 25 degrees in temp when put the chicken down.
I was able to go through 40 pounds of wings in less than 20 minutes with the gas between med-high and high. Does sound like a jet engine when full bore.
The only thing that I added was a 90 degree pipe to assist with oil drainage. Clean up is a breeze when using a pressure washer. Doing it by hand and it's a pain in the butt. Put a thin coat of Pam on the inside once dry to prevent rust. Also put a coat of oil on the outside as well.
Cover not available in Canada so having local upholstery shop make one up for me.

No the fryer may have 3 baskets but they all sit in the same oil, I would not cook any thing but fish seafood and then change oil for anything else.

yes i often cook wings and fries at the same time with no problems. the 8.5 gallon is a large cooker i would recommend it to anyone i have done 15 lbs of fish and shrimp plus oysters and 5 lbs of fries in 20 minutes start to finish plus this unit will fry two 10 lb trukeys at once that is a big plus to me.
