The Cajun Flip N Fry has a large 1.25 gallon capacity container, big enough to batter 8 to 9 - 8" filets or 1 lb of shrimp at a time. The Flip N Fry is not cumbersome to use. It is easy to hold onto; even a child can use it. The lid fits tightly so it will not leak batter, which means no mess to clean up. The design of the Flip N Fry makes it convenient to store either in a cabinet or a side-by-side freezer.
