I have always fried in a Presto multi-cooker. It holds alot and has a basket, I've had 2 in 14 yrs, so I guess it was a good product. Finally, though, the magnetic plug stopped working, and I needed a fryer fast, we LOVE chicken wings!
So this was the only thing WalMart had, besides the tiny Fry-Daddy, which doesn't even come close to meeting my needs.
I brought it home, read the manual, prepared to wait half an hour for it to heat up, it heats up in less than 10 minutes. Also I prepared to cook my wings for 20-25 minutes, since that's what the manual says. It only took about 8 minutes. This thing cranks out the food very quickly, and cleans up easily, just a wipe down on the outside with 4-09 and it's shiny again. I don't know how long it will last, but I did save the receipt just in case. This is a really nice fryer for the price. It's easy to assemble, just slide the element onto the back of the fryer unit and go.
It says it heats up to 375, but my old one said 400 and cooked way slower. Maybe it was just worn out? Nutshell-I like it, and I like the price. Will like it even more if it lasts me a few years!
