Very easy use and clean.

This fryer is a perfect size for home cooking and the double baskets make it easy to cook two items at the same time.

The french fries, empanadas, and fried chicken I've cooked in it so far have come out great.

In light of Shelley Ryan's excellent report on the problem she had with her Presto fryer, I thought I should report my own experience. I filled my fryer with oil and let it come up to temperature on the highest setting. I checked the temperature with my own thermometer when the light went out, and indeed the temperature was only around 340 degrees rather than 375 as it should be. But, after simply mixing the oil around a bit with the drip baskets, I found that within a few minutes the temperature rose right up to 375 degrees, as it was supposed to be. The heating elements are very close to the unit's internal thermostat, and I think that you need to get the oil moving a bit in order for all of the oil to heat uniformly up to the correct temperature.

Of course, once the food gets frying there is plenty of movement in the oil to even out the temperature. And given the substantial amount of oil and the amount of power supplied by the unit's heating elements, I find that it does a much better, cleaner, and safer job of frying than I'd been experiencing on my gas stovetop with a deep pot. My experience has been that the temperature comes back up to the right level very quickly. The french fries, empanadas, and fried chicken I've cooked in it so far have come out great.

As some others have posted in reply to her review, it's possible that the thermostat in Ryan's unit was simply defective. For mine, it seems to be just right.

When I decided to purchase a fryer, I started by first doing research; reading online reviews(like this)and reading consumer publication reviews. Next I go to the manufacturer's website of the fryers that look good and download the instruction manuals for the model I am interested in. This allows me to really get a feel for the products features and find out if there are any drawbacks.Last,I went to some local stores to get a hands on look at fryers with similar capacities and features as the one(s)I am considering. This gave me a real since of how much food I could fry in these machines. So, having done all this I decided to go with the Presto ProFry(05466).
I have used the Presto Profry 3 times, frying shrimp, mushrooms, and sweet potatoes. Everything has cooked up nice and crisp with very little oily feeling or taste. This fryer comes with two half size baskets(about the same size as a basket in the smaller machines), but by going to the Presto web site I found out I could get a full size basket for it as well. I used the large basket when I fried the sweet potato fries and it allowed me to cook them without crowding them. The two smaller baskets allowed me to fry shrimp at the same time as mushrooms and bring them to the table at the same time.
I was little concerned about the size of this appliance, but it does not take up much more space than other smaller capacity fryers. Based on how I will use this, I decided larger would be better. I will not be frying all that often, it will be mostly be used when I have the family over for get-togethers. When I looked at the smaller fryers it was clear that they just would not hold enough to be efficient for a group(4-6 people). And if I am going to all the trouble of frying, I don't want to just fry a little bit(for just my husband and I).

I got this fryer from my dad.He bought it because it was dirt cheap and looked great.At first, even at the 375F setting this frier would not get any hotter than 360F, so I decided to sell it on Ebay, and get another one, since Im starting to do some experiments for a Burger Franchise @Burgerhaus.

I had a burger fest on a weekend so I decided to try frying about 10 KG of fries on a Sunday.
The frier worked great, but sometimes the temperature was not enough when frying 1KG at once on the 2 baskets.

After looking on how the temperature sensors are secured, I decided to try modifying the fryer.
It seems that the sensors are perfectly calibrated for the temperatures on the dial. However, this sensors are attached with a metal plate directly to the heating element, so what the fryer actually reads its an average from the Oil temp and the heating element temp.

Removing the supporting plate and 2 screws that hold the sensors, allows the fryer to correctly read the Oil's Temp.

After doing this, the Presto Profry will get up to 390F as peaking point, and work at an average of 370F on the 375 on the Dial. 365 Peak and 350F average on the 350F ,and so on. The fryer will work perfectly after that. (Look at the pictures with the Thermometer @Customer Images)

I rate the fryer a 4, since this is a little design flaw, and also because it does not have an oil filtering system like other fryers.
Other than that, and after the mod, this is a SUPERB Fryer for only $69.99

I higly recommend using Palm Oil, High Smoke Point Peanut Oil, Soy Oil+Palm Olein. Do not use Canola, Olive, Sunflower or other Higly Monosaturated oils as this have low smoke points and will be health dangerous at any temp higher than 350F.

Verified Purchase
According to my wife, It:

1) Looks Good: She says it's a bit big for the kitchen counter but since it looks good so thats okay. (I guess she was expecting a smaller one from me but this is the one I picked based on ratings).

2) Works Well: She was very excited the day she made chicken wings and fries in it together. She said the fries came out crisp and were done in less than 2 minutes. There was no excess oil on fries either. The chicken wings took abot 8 minutes but they were some of the best chicken wings we've had. They were crisp and not oily.

3) Power cord is too short (2 ft): It might be an issue for some people but it wasn't a big deal for her because we have plenty of power outlets around the kitchen counters but she still mentioned it anyway.

Personally, I loved the price. I was expecting to pay a couple of hundred for something like this but for $70 it's a bargain.

This unit cleans easily. You can put the oil pan, the lid, the heating element and the baskets in the dishwasher, if your dishwasher is big enough. Otherwise you will have to wash the oil pan yourself.

The lid allows you lower and raise the baskets with the lid closed. This helps keep hot oil from getting splattered when you are moving the baskets or lowering something wet into the oil.

This was a very decent buy. I'm hoping to get many years of good use out of it.
