I have had my Presto cooker for several years and buy it for every new bride I know because it is a great device. When my kitchen was being remodeled, I used the Presto cooker for every meal we had for over 2 months. I have made everything from pancakes to roasts with great success. It can replace a deep fryer, slow cooker, or steamer with ease. Clean up is a breeze too.
I bought my Presto multi-cooker at WalMart about two years ago and still use it frequently. The two best features are that it is so versatile -- and that it is so easy to clean.
I just made and cooked a gallon of spaghetti sauce all day in my multicooker. How many cooking devices are there where you can sauté vegetables and fry hamburger for spaghetti sauce, then add the other ingredients and build the sauce in the same cooker, turn the temperature down and let it simmer all day? The sauce is perfect!
Many cooking products pay lip service to being non-stick, but this one lives up to its advertisements. After frying peppers and onions in the cooker, adding ground beef, tomato sauce and other ingredients and cooking all day, I would have had to throw out some other cooking kettles that I've used because of baked-on, impossible to clean foods. But this product lives up to its non-stick advertisements; Is soaked it briefly in water and detergent, and the entire unit just easily wiped clean. The design with the removable heating element makes it completely immersible in water and that is a great feature also.
My favorite use for the Presto multi-cooker is for homemade soups, for much the same reasons. Ingredients can be fried or sautéed at high heat, then the unit can be turned down to slow-cook the soup.
Along with my George Foreman grill and my GE hand blender, also purchased at WalMart, the Presto Multicooker is one of the most frequently-used devices in my kitchen.
I am on my second Presto Kitchen Kettle. My first one lasted 15 years. I can't think of a better product with so many uses. If this next one last another 15 years, I will get another. GREAT APPLIANCE! No cook should be without it!
I purchased this product a few weeks ago. I have to say the money was well spent. This is such a great appliance. You can use it in so many ways. I cook a lot Chinese food. I use it for hot pot, deep frying, frying, and stew. As complicated as Chinese cooking is, slmost everything can be done using this kettle. And it is so easy to clean! The only thing that i don't like is that the power cord is very short.
But overall, I love this product and definitely would recommend it to others.
I really like this product because it is easy to clean I like the way it cooks. The only drawbacks I have foud are that you have to heat it for 20 min prior to cooking and the knob attachment on the lid gets water under it when washed. Other than those two things Its a great product. I got one for my nieces, birthday. Makes great fried chicken if you do a few pieces at a time.
I actually bought this as a gift for my sister. She can't stop talking about all the things she has done with this wonderful cooker. Now I wish I had kept it for myself.
The pot is easy to use, just the right size for our family and I love it!
We've tried just about every deep fryer you can buy......Fry Daddy, Fry GrandDaddy, the whole fry family! They'd work fine for a few months, than the thermostat would go, and we could never get the oil hot enough.
Then we found the Presto Kitchen Kettle Multi-Cooker, and our problem was solved! This is one of the [if not the only] deep fryers with a temp control.
The kettle is deep, and fries everything evenly.
Although we only use it for deep frying, you also have the option of using it as a steamer and slow cooker.
Another great feature of the Presto Kettle, is that it's totally immersable, and VERY easy to clean!
We've given this item as a gift many times, and all recipients love it!
My experience with this cooker goes back 12 years. I work in a restaurant in Wisconsin, and on fish fry Fridays, one of these fried our appitizers every Friday for 12 hours, for about 1.5 years before replacement!!! At the price, you can't go wrong! Not only is it a great fryer for the price, it does so much else! You will NEVER!!! find a better steamer, pasta cooker, or slow cooker for the price! Durable, easy to clean, heats very fast, does everything, and inexpensive! From commercial use to home use, no worries! Thanks Walmart!
I like the fact that this appliance serves several purposes from slow cooker to deep fryer. I am with the military and it's handy that one appliance fills several needs. I now own two. One at home and one when deployed.
I've just started using using my multi-cooker. I think it is going to finally allow me to get rid of my stove which has just been taking up space for several years. My George Forman grill, microwave, slow cooker and coffee maker have filled almost all of my cooking needs. This pot will do anything else I might want to do - like boil water for pasta. I'm very happy to have found this product. It is very reasonably priced. Ordering online and picking up at my local store was very fast and easy.
I bought my first, and soon followed by a second one 23 years ago. They are both still working beautifully. I have now bought one for my son and his wife. Boy and he was only 8 when I bought my first. The only thing that gets to me is that the prices are outrageous at certain places, up to 42.00. Thank goodness Wal-Mart have kept the cost within reason. I think I paid 19.99 for my first.
I am very satisfied with this multi- cooker. Serves more than one use as most cookers do.
Lives up to the Presto name. I highly recommend this appliance. It's versatility can't be beat.
It was easy to set-up and use. Clean-up was a snap. Highly recommended.
Many uses, cleans-up easy. Great to have in the kitchen.
I was going to purchase this cooker from its competitor but when I found out I could buy at Walmart without paying any shipping/handling fee just by having it deliver at the store, it sold me right away.
I only used it to fry "empanadas". They came out great, just like the restaurant style, they were crispy all around and w/out worrying about getting them burned.
I love my fryer.
This item is great - I haven't even used it for all it's uses but I'm in the middle of a kitchen remodel that's taking MUCH longer than anticipated and this product is saving our souls!! We can actually EAT REAL FOOD! Stews, soups, veggies, and homemade applesauce - all have been great! My only complaint is the "safety" feature where the electrical connection is held on by a powerful magnet...it comes off much easier than I think need be. Set it up where you don't have to move the cord much and you'll be fine...a minor annoyance that does not detract from the wonderful usefulness of this product.
I have bought one of these for many of my family and friends. I have 2 for myself and one I use at work!! I currently have one under my Christmas tree for my very special friend.
Cannot to wait to try various recipes and so exited to have this product. I will tell everybody about it.
