I was in the market for a new electric deep fryer after my old Presto FryDaddy, that I'd owned for over ten years, finally broke. The power cord had gotten stuck in the FryDaddy socket. (I'd never before had this problem with it.) I needed to remove the cord so that I could clean the FryDaddy, and removing it took a LOT of force...so much so that the plug broke when it finally came out. So, while shopping for a replacement, I discovered the GranPappy. Because of the longevity of my old FryDaddy and the great reviews of the GranPappy, I decided to purchase it. When I got it home, I attached the power cord (it has a magnetic attaching mechanism) and it heated up right away, just as expected. I love the larger size of this one over my old FryDaddy. I had my doubts about the plastic strainer spoon that comes with it. I thought it might melt in the hot cooking oil, but it didn't. I've used the GranPappy and its spoon many, many times over the past several months, and it's always worked like a charm. Even when adding frozen fries to the cooking oil after it's heated up, the GranPappy reheats the oil very, very quickly. I'm very pleased with this product.
