Breville knows that not all deep-fried foods are created equal—so they've created the first deep fryer with technology that adjusts the time and temperature to suit what you're cooking, from crispy, golden fries and wings to decadent donuts. Choose from seven preset functions (including a special "twice-fried" setting)—and this smart appliance will deliver the right temperature at just the right time.
- The Smart Fryer™ intuitively adjusts cooking time and temperature to ensure perfect results—no matter what you're cooking.
- Illuminated LCD control panel automatically indicates time, temperature, plus preset cooking functions for your favorite dishes.
- For specialized cooking, the fryer has preprogrammed settings for French fries, chicken wings, fish, calamari and donuts.
- Twice-fried function ensures ultra-crisp, restaurant-quality French fries, making adjustments for fresh or frozen potatoes.
- Use the Fresh/Frozen setting to automatically change time or temperature based on your selected cooking mode.
- A custom setting allows you to program your favorite dish.
- Large viewing window lets you monitor cooking without lifting the fry basket.
- Electronic thermostat helps oil rapidly come back to desired frying temperature between batches.
- CoolZone Technology allows food debris to fall into cooler oil, preventing burning and extending the life of your cooking oil.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Paxton from Junk My first one worked three times and Williams-Sonoma sent me a new one very quickly. The second one worked one time. Absolute junkDate published: 2018-04-06Rated 1 out of 5 by Diane R from Broke after one use!!!! I bought this one month ago and only used it one time. The fryer broke after the one use. Huge waste of money! Ver upsetting.Date published: 2018-01-07Rated 5 out of 5 by Nedman from Deep Fryer I love my deep fryer works very well, very happy with it. The delivery address change I made did not happen as promised but I happened to be home when it arrived so in the end it was ok. I have been a Williams Sonoma long time customer, I love the stores as well and the choice of quality products is unbeatable. With my cooking background and retail experience I would love to work at one of the stores but there is not one near me, maybe some day. Thanks very much.

I used to drive miles for fries that good. I tried a less expensive frozen shoe string potatoes with unsatisfactory results. Their color did not change at all and they tasted as though they had absorbed too much oil. I use peanut oil and the "smart" setting for frozen fries.Date published: 2016-07-03Rated 1 out of 5 by Corvetteriders from Breville Deep Fryer I really enjoyed it the first 3-6 months I had it. Only fried foods maybe once a month, then "surprise!" The heating element died!! I'm extremely upset that it just STOP WORKING! What a waste of money!Date published: 2016-03-29Rated 1 out of 5 by kathy84 from Broke During First Use We purchased this fryer in November 2015, but did not try to use it for the first time until Feb 2016. We followed the directions, used the right amount of oil, and turned it on. After about 5-8 minutes of heating up, the fryer tripped the GFCI on the outlet. We unplugged the unit, re-set the GFCI, and plugged it back in. The display panel turned on, but the heating element no longer worked. The oil temperature dropped over the next several minutes. There were no additional instructions on actions to take if the heating element stops working. Unable to return the unit because we didn't keep the shipping material/info. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!Date published: 2016-02-17Rated 1 out of 5 by KLKL from Average Fryer/Premium Price (Broke After One Year) I have 6 other Breville items. All have either met or exceeded expectations. I thought I couldn't go wrong buying the Smart Fryer BDF500XL. I purchased this fryer from the WS website on Nov 12, 2014. It took about a week to get to me. I've used it 1-4 times a month for the past year. It was always just an average fryer. It didn't cook any better/worse than the other fryers I've owned. On Nov 13, 2015, it just stopped working. I contacted WS, who told me they will not warranty it because of its age. I really wanted to like this fryer... and I wanted to trust in WS to take into account that even though I purchased this item 366 days before it broke, that they'd still warranty it since it's only been about 358 days since I've actually had it (considering shipping). Overall, this fryer isn't worth the cost. $40-60 fryers do the same job, and have lasted so much longer. This fryer, when working, performed average. And now that it's broken after only one year of use, is just terrible.Date published: 2015-11-30Rated 5 out of 5 by tmdlaw from Breville Fryer This is a great appliance ~ we have already made fried chicken, fried mushrooms and regular and sweet potato fries. I would suggest buying a french fry cutter as well. Super product. I bought 2 - one for us and one for a bridal shower gift. The recipient was very happy to have received this item from her registry! Very easy to use!Date published: 2015-07-29
A. Surprised W-s would not warranty for 366 days or respond to that review. Hmmm. B. Sounds like if I buy it I need to use my Amex which doubles the manufacturer warranty on many items. C. What’s the highest temp? D. What else is set on the display?The display of the Breville® of the BDF500XL Smart Fryer® will show the time, temperature and which of the pre-set cooking functions has been chosen, if any. Each of these can be adjusted by the Scroll/Select dial to the side of the display. The highest temperature setting for this fryer is 385 degrees.Date published: 2019-07-24
