I love my cool daddy deep fryer

Very nice glad I made this purchase

Great fryer - especially with kids around

Quit using deep fryers years ago because of mess from splatters and oil burns, not to mention the lingering odors that seemed to stay forever. THIS fryer fixed all my problems with home fryers. It has a hinged lid with a window so the oil doesn't spatter you while cooking and you can check for done-ness without exposing yourself to spatters - which also helps keep extra cleaning down. It comes with a charcoal filter to prevent the odors from wandering thru the the house. The casing on the unit doesn't heat up so my grandkids don't get burned trying to look at the food or "helping" me by handing me things and brushing against it. It has features of higher end products like adjustable temperature, ready light and removable basket - without that annoying huge handle sticking out all the time - but at a much more reasonable price. We had to order through the website because our area stores can't keep it in stock. Now we know why! We'll be ordering another one soon for our daughter who has 4 kids.


A relative had the same fryer which prompted me to buy one for myself. In the past, I've had very little luck with fryers and pretty much avoided them. Either I would have too much hot oil splashing or oil overflowing. I love the fact that the lid can be closed prior to immersing the basket with food into the oil. Surprised also by how little smell there was when I fried up some catfish. The charcoal filter that comes with the fryer really seems to help. Usually I bake french fries in the oven. Used the fryer today and the fries were a big hit. I have to admit I am frying smaller portions at a time than I thought I would, but the time to cook each portion is short enough that it really doesn't matter all that much. Two great safety features are that the outside of the unit is not hot to the touch and that the plug is attached by magnets (so, if someone accidentally pulls the cord it will become disconnected rather than risk spilling the container over.) Highly recommend.

Great replacement

I received the Oster 16 cup fryer as a Christmas gift to replace my seriously grease caked Fry Daddy. You can see my review over there for details on what a fryer SHOULDN'T be. It lasted less than a week before I was so horrendously sick of it that I cleaned it out & returned it to the store and purchased this one. And this one... It is ALMOST perfect. -The footprint is more reasonable so I have room to rest a spoon beside it. -The food doesn't stick to the basket so I don't really need the spoon ;-D -It holds less oil so it heats up faster. -The element is built into the pot so I can fry without a basket if I need to. -The basket actually sits completely above the oil when raised. -The magnets in the cord are more secure so it doesn't pop off when I open or close the lid. My only gripe is that the lid doesn't keep the popping grease from getting around the edges of the pot, but that is easily remedied with a quick wipedown after I finish cooking each meal.

Very Nice Deep Fryer with the Presto Brand!

This is a very nice appliance. I could tell that right out of the box. I love everything about it. The ability to lower (and raise) the basket after closing the lid is wonderful. I like that you can choose the temp for the type of food you are frying. Large Capacity. Probably too large for a single person but just fine for a couple or family. Nice basket. You can order replacement filters from presto as states in the instruction booklet. Seems like most folks dont read those. I do. The oil vat comes out so you can clean it or strain your oil for another use. Why the heck would you buy a fryer that strains oil for you when you can save money and do it yourself! This is an awesome fryer. I dont understand why the reviews are so low on this one (in black)..but the same model in white is stellar...hmmm???? Whats up with that?! Save a few bucks over the white one and buy the black one...exact same model dif color....its great and it works well!

Works Great! Easy to use

I had one of these fryers for at least 10 years or more. I use it about 4 times a month. But it had gotten so greasy and beyond cleaning and for only $30.00 I decided it was time to buy a new one. I wanted one just like I had because I was so happy with it. Our Walmart didn't carry it but was able to order it online. Had some hiccups getting it here but as soon as it did had the family together for shrimp and fried okra, a family favorite. This fryer has different temperatures for what your frying. Easy to use, with great results. Love mine! Forgot one feature I really like. You can fill the basket with your food and then just press the lever and it goes down into the oil. Safe to use and you don't have to keep taking the basket out to fill. Watch that lid when you open it it has a good spring on it and it really springs open. This is a good size too. Big enough to cook for a family but not so big you wonder where your going to store it.

Good fryer for the money

Excellent fryer, it's inexpensive, large and has some good features. i really like the lid, because you can suspend the basket above the oil to fill it with your food then close the lid and drop the basket with the lid closed, this keeps the oil from spashing everyware. you can also lift the basket from the oil with the lid closed. I read a review that said you couldn't but you can if you have the handle in the correct "slot" and if the fryer isn't over filled with oil. I also read a review that said it didn't heat to 375 deg. but mine does? not sure if everyone knows how to use a fryer, even though this one is simple to use. Now th BAD part is that it dosn't have an off switch you have to unplug the unit to turn it off. But thats not too bad because IF there was a malfunction in the unit at lets say 2 a.m. I would rather it be unplugged and not burn my house down. Must also mention this thing is a breaze to clean (even for a guy like me) and with the filter the house don't stink like a fryer while its in use. I'm very happy with it and use the heck out of it. I WOULD recomend this to anyone! thanks for listening Mike P.S. I'm using it as I wright this... CHICKEN WINGS!!!

Great Item! Better Price!

Looking for a small deep-fryer was complicated by the vast array of choices...bad to great. The Presto Cool Daddy Cool Touch Deep Fryer had all the features I wanted at a killer price. It's easy to get the oil to the proper temp thanks to the temp gauge on it. The basket is better than having to use a slotted spoon or other hand-held item to remove the cooked food. I've used it to fry delicate, corn-starch-encrusted tofu for my Japanese Agadashi Dofu...and, it was perfect! I've made tempura shrimp and veggies that cooked quickly, thoroughly and without being too brown or under-done. Cooking boneless pieces of dark and light meat chicken in a light batter is a breeze! I've even gotten creative and fried some sweet potato chips that, when dusted with cinnamon, cloves and brown sugar are a sweet treat for the entire family. WalMart is my go-to source for items I really don't want to have to shop for in person. Their descriptions are accurate, their selection varied, their prices more than competitive and their shipping flawless. All in all, I give the Presto Cool Daddy Col Touch Deep Fryer a perfect five out of five.

Best kitchen appliance EVER 10 stars!!

My $150 deep fryer was a bit Overused as you could say So when my husband & I moved into our new home, we decided to buy a new cheaper one to get us by until we could afford to buy another expensive one. We decided this was a nice one for us to get us by. Only cost's us about $40. So we got this one. After using it 2 - 3 times a week for the last 2 almost 3 months... we have decided to just keep this one!! Its a great product, Looks nice, & Works just as good as our $150 one!!! Hands down a A+ product!!! We love it!!!

cooking for two or three

This is suppose to be a large cooker for 6 quarts. However, the instructions say not to fill with oil above a certain point and the basket is small. Therefore I find you are limited to cooking maybe 2 or 3 servings in this deep fryer. That is good for me as I only cook for myself and sometimes one other person. You may have noted a number of bad reviews where it was said the food comes out soggy and undone. That would be true if those people were not following the directions to the letter. I did follow the directions. My food was very crisp and nicely done. I felt safe while cooking with this fryer. No splattering, no messy kitchen. The appliance does stay cool to the touch and is easily cleaned. I love this deep fryer and highly recommend it.
