A tremendous value!

I searched high and low and reviewed dozens of deep fryers before settling on this one. So far it has been flawless in its performance. One little drawback is the temp issue. Every deep fryer is capped at reaching about 375º. I would have liked to seen a bit more.......400-415º is ideal. The real secret to healthy (yes, I just said healthy!) deep frying is the temp of the oil. You want the oil hot enough to sear the outer surface closed. Once the outer surface is sealed closed, it prevents oil from entering into the food being fried. Harold McGee in his excellent book, "On Food and Cooking" proved that you can indeed deep fry food and have literally NO oil enter the final product. That means it is cooked through with no oily after taste. The secret to this is the temp of the oil. His experiments settled on about 415º as the ideal temp to deep fry. That is hot enough to seal the surface, yet not too hot to burn the food before it is finished frying. Another suggestion I have........Don't waste a lot of money on Peanut oil!! Instead, go to a restaurant supply store or Sam's Club and buy the food service grade shortening. Most of these are "creamy" mixtures that can withstand multiple cooks using the same oil. I owned several A&W restaurants and we would change our fryer oil only a couple times a week. That is after using them all day, every day. For the home cook, You can keep the same oil in your fryer for many, many cooks. The myth behind peanut oil is that it has a higher burn point than other oils. It is true, but the difference is very small. Besides, you will never reach the burn point, so why pay double what other oils costs? Great product!

Great Fryer

Got this not to long ago and have been putting it to the test since getting it. Overall VERY good fryer, I can easily fry some chicken and french ries at the same time with no issues. It has a removable element for easy cleaning and grease filtering. The duel basket system is great for when you wanna do several items or a bunch of a single item. The quick connect power cable is a great safety feature, although its a tad short for my tastes. I wish it had a temp read out instead of the dial knob, but for the price im not complaining. Once it reaches temerature it holds it fairly well even with adding food. It says not to use the lid for high moisture foods like fries, but thats only fresh cut fries, you can safely toss the lid on if your using frozen store bought fries. Even when frying fresh high water foods it doesnt send oil flying due to its deep basin. My ONLY dislike with this product is warm up time, it takes a smidge to long to warm up to the higher temps for my tastes, but im also used to a smaller fryer. Comes with a catalog in which you can purchase a single jumbo basket instead of using the 2 smaller ones included. Overall, this is a great fryer for an average size family, its not the smallest fryer out there so if your tight on kitchen space you may have to make room for it.

Excellent Performer

Purchased over 2 years ago and it hasn't failed me yet. Employed as an Executive Chef and this fryer definitely cooks close to commercial quality. Wish that the fryer cover slots for the fryer basket handles were smaller to reduce heat loss and it would probably cook even faster. I use it often to make deep-fried sweet potato cakes for friends and the results are always the same: excellent. Cleanup is easy and the appearance fits in well with any decor. It will be hard to improve something this good for home use.

fryer

Great fryer,cooks fast and allows more than one food to be cooked at a time.Easy to clean because the fryer oil tank can be removed.That is a huge plus over our old fryer.We threw it away when we saw how good this one worked.The old one was very hard to clean because the oil tank couldn't be removed.

big and nice

I bought this at Wal Mart .com and had it ship to store. I got when they promised. I opened it and used it right away. It takes 5L of cooking oil to fill to the max cooking line I used Crisco we made home made fried chicken breasts 8 pieces. then some crinkle frozen fries. It came out better than you can get at any fast food place and it was done in 20 minutes. I heated the oil while I prepared the chicken and it was ready. you need alot of space for it on the counter but it cleaned up easier than using a fring pan. Easy and quick meals without having to pay for fast food is for me. It will more than pay for itself. my husband is looking up how to make doughnuts chicken fried steaks rolled tacos and fried buritos so it is well worth the money. enjoy!!

Not the product it was 8 years ago.

This is the second Presto Dual ProFry that I have purchased. I bought the first one about 8 years ago. The second was purchased in July 2012 as a gift for a friend. Same box but there were some differences in product quality that I found to be very disappointing. 1) It no longer has a strong durable stainless steel frame like the earlier models, therefore, the metal will easily bend or dent. 2) The cover is no longer stainless steel, but made of plastic. 3) The enamel pot does not sit as cleanly in the frame as the earlier model, which means the baskets do not sit as cleanly on the enamel pot. 4) Made more cheaply, but cost more than my earlier model. It did a great job of frying, but I am curious to how long this product will hold up over the years.

Disappointed

After reading the countless reviews on this product, I made the purchase. It's ok, but not a wonderful as everyone made it out to be. If you want crispy fried food (the reason for the fryer...right?) you can not keep the splatter lid on during cooking. If you want crispy fries for example, you can only add one sliced potato at a time because the temp drops and doesn't recover before they are browned...so more than one gets you mushy, oily fries. My biggest problem is that the baskets rusted after my first wash. Must be that I had too high of an expectation after reading all the positive reviews. Overall, it's not a bad fryer, just disappointing.

Everyday useable

My husband and son think they have to have french fries or tater tots everyday so I have been through a few fryers. The side by side baskets are very handy to fry chicken & tots at the same time. I've only had this Presto for a few weeks but can tell that if it will hold up to all the usage we give it, I"ll love it!

deep frying made simple

The deep fryer is well worth the money. The only fault I have found is the lid does not fit snuggly when not in use. I use a splatter screen immediately when dropping the baskets to eliminate the oil from splattering. I also ordered the large basket for deep chicken/wings. Works better than the two baskets for this process. The large basket allows the pieces more room. It is rather large so be prepared to make room for it when not in use.

What a find!

I had a fry daddy for years, I also use an electric fryer. I tried making fried chicken in this unit...what took 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 hrs before took less than a half hour! The chicken came out moist, crisp and not at all greasy. I loved the ease of use, the temperature controls...and the drop baskets! I'm wondering what took me so long to make this purchase?! Would I recommend it...you bet I would. I loved everything about this machine and can't wait to make my next meal. Next up, fried seafood night!!!
