A wise decision. A deepfrier in SS that you can fully dismantle and simply dump in the dishwasher is an investment you'll never regret (especially not if you hear about others who spend an hour or two scrubbing and cleaning their oil tub to make it even look remotely presentable).
One of the best brands available here is Fritel, but I don't know what their US or european sales support is like.
If you like best quality fries, then stay away from deep friers with filter lids. Besides, having the smell of fries in the kitchen is part of the joy of making home made fires anyways.
Tonight let us eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die.
