With the right equipment, deep-fried food can be crisp and delicious instead of fat-logged and soggy. This Presto CoolDaddy electric deep fryer includes several features that help you make tasty fried chicken, fish, shrimp, and French fries for up to six people. Its adjustable thermostat ranges from 250 to 375 degrees F, and its bright red indicator light signals when the oil has reached the desired temperature so food cooks no longer than necessary. A viewing window lets you track progress without opening the cover, and an included wire basket with an exterior handle means you can prevent spatters by lowering food into hot oil with the lid down.

Smart in structure, the fryer has a cool-touch exterior and a locking cover with a push-button latch for safety. Its anti-odor charcoal air filter removes without hassle, and the interior cooking pot is nonstick for quick cleanup. The wire interior basket features small holes--good for draining oil off while keeping small pieces in. Measuring approximately 13-1/2 by 10 by 11-1/2 inches, the cooker can be stored with the basket, handle, and cord inside. All parts should be washed by hand, and Presto includes a one-year warranty. --Emily Bedard

Easy to clean.
Review Reviewer
This fryer size is perfect, it can fit easily on the counter top and has a basket big enough to fry a large amount of chicken or fries when we have guests.
Kaylee
I love that the handle sits out of the oil and that the lid can be closed before lowering food into the hot oil.

This is a great little fryer. It cooks enough for 2 servings at a time, do not overload. It has a nice list of features. The basket is very handy, the temperature guage and ready light work well and the lid with vents and a filter help reduce the grease smell in your house. Some foods with a lot of moisture will not fry well with the lid closed and even with the lid closed you will not eliminate the odor completely. I set this up on my stove when I use it so that I'm able to use the exhaust fan as well and then I am able to eliminate all of the smell. It cleans up nicely and I'm able to store the oil in it between uses for weeks.

The previous reviews clearly were not using as this is intended. I suspect they were overfilling with oil/food/both.

A great gadget. No spills, no over boils, no stink, no mess.

Ensure your food is patted dry...or use a bit less oil if you don't want an over boil of grease coming out of the top.

It also says, to prevent food gunk sticking to pan..like hand batter fish don't use the basket. I just put the basket down into the grease and drop the fish in. Didn't stick.

Easy to clean. Lid lifts off, and it has a small catch for when you open the lid in the back of the unit.

I think it was easy to clean. Lid comes off, filter pops out, bowl lifts out and the bowl is immersable. Little hot water and Dawn and like new...

It took about 51 ounces of oil.

Order extra filters, it only comes with one.

This fryer is way better than the one I bought a few years ago [the fry baby]. The only word of caution I want to share with folks is to really remove the ice crystals from food before putting in the fryer. The ice crystals make the oil boil up too much and will cause leakage. I had this happen the first time I fried, and since then I rinse the chicken wings under cool water and shake em off before putting them in the basket.

If anyone is wondering, it takes a bottle and a half of cooking oil to get to the "max fill line", which is where they recommend it to be.

The cooking/draining basket is probably the best feature of the product because you can let the oil drain off before putting the food on paper towels. I've noticed a lot less grease on my paper towels after letting the food drain for a couple of minutes.

I really wanted to like this one, but as anyone who know anything about fryers knows, temp is key!
This one was at least 40 degrees low w/o food and 60 degrees low with only one tortilla worth of chip! That tells me that, in addition to the thermostat being off, the oil container doesn't have enough mass; Oil has about half the thermal mass of water, so a big thick metal oil container is needed for a quick temperature rebound. 375 is barely enough for most frying, but 310 is too low. That means greasy food and a clogged heart. Returned.

First I should say this was a replacement for a Waring Pro deep fryer, which I loved. Although I hated the clean up part so figured I'd try something new.

What I liked about the Presto Cool Daddy:

Cool touch outside..while it isn't exactly cool it wasn't scolding hot either.
No mess frying. The locking lid and handle (lowering/raising basket) both work great and do prevent any accidental splatters of oil.
Clean up is a breeze.

My big complaint is the oil does not stay hot once you put the food in and it takes it awhile to get back up to the correct temperature, which leaves you with foods soaked in oil as an end result.

I tried different oils (peanut and vegetable). I did the double fry method for the fries, but the same result--fries soaked with oil.

The quality is OK. About what I expected considering it is almost all plastic.

I will be returning the Presto Cool Daddy and purchasing another Waring Pro as it did an awesome job of retaining the temperature to get perfect fries..and other foods. The Cool Daddy just doesn't give foods the crispness I prefer when frying foods.

Since others have given a basic description of this fryer, I'll skip all of that and tell you why I returned it. One of the reasons that I decided on this fryer was the ability to close the cover while raising and lowering food into and out of the oil to prevent splattering hot oil all over the counter. The basket in the unit that I received could not be raised or lowered with the top cover latched. Once the cover was closed the mechanism for releasing the basket assembly was inoperable. Simply put, this was a deal wrecker for me. My overall impression of the fryer was not especilly high. I would describe the quality as less than I was expecting, lightweight, flimsy, with a plastic sort of feel to the whole thing. I think I'll start over and spend a little more money on a more quality fryer. Cannot recommend this one. This is the first time I have used the Amazon return process and found it to be as easy as it gets. Thanks Amazon. As a side note I have an observation about negative reviews in general. I find that more often than not negative reviews get "not helpful" responces from readers. I guess it's human nature to not want to hear a negative about something that one is interested in buying. Point is--a negative can be as helpful as a positive review because it might just save you the headache of returning the item and starting over as I have done. Thanks for reading this. I hope it is helpful during your decision making process.
