Presto* FryDaddy* electric deep fryer (4-cup capacity) 120 volts AC, 1200 watts
You don't need a 6-gallon oil vat to enjoy deep-fried foods at home--this petite deep fryer makes four big servings with just 4 cups of oil. A compact 7 inches in diameter, the fryer features easy controls for precision frying: it automatically maintains the proper frying temperature, letting you focus on cooking instead of fussing with the controls. The fryer features a snap-on lid, so you can store oil right in the fryer for reuse. All surfaces are nonstick for tidy cleanup (the fryer is not dishwasher-safe and should never be completely immersed in water). A hand scoop is included with the fryer for easy stirring, lifting, and draining, and the 120-volt AC cord unplugs from the outlet, while the attached handle makes the fryer easy to move around the kitchen. The fryer has a two-year limited warranty. --Ariel Meadow Stallings

Surprisingly, the responses did not indicate that anyone had actually tried. Well bacon lovers, I am here to tell you that it cooks the most amazing, crispy bacon - ever!
They should call it the Presto BaconDaddy! How about The Baconator? All I'm trying to convey is, how could you NOT use this for baconating???
I strongly recommend a splatter guard as soon as you've placed the slices into the oil. I used Canola oil and other than that, found the max number of thick sliced pieces should be limited to 3 at a time, 4 MAY lead to the oil overflowing. Yup, experience. However the experimenting was more than useful, and delicious!
Note: being a small fryer without a rack, the bacon comes out like its previous owner's curly-cue tail, but make no mistake, unless you are a food stylist, it'll be the best bacon ever!
So, my bacon mates, here is your holy grail of swine strips!
And to all of the answers as to whether or not the Presto FryDaddy can be used to cook bacon, the simple answer is, how can you own this and not have tried??
So when it started to leak from the bottom of the fryer, it was replaced with a new one.
The pictures should demonstrate what happened but essentially, I had a grease splatter screen on top of the fry daddy and when I went to remove it to put the fries in the oil, the plastic lip of the fry daddy had melted!
Thinking that it might just be the lip, I added some fries and found out that the plastic lining that holds the oil had actually started to melt and was putting clumps of plastic all over the fries (if you look at the images, that's what the black globs are in between the fries).
It may have been an issue that is isolated to the product I received, but it is a little unnerving that a device that is holding boiling oil had started to melt.
Thankfully, it did not leak and was able to maintain the oil until it had cooled down.
While I was a big Fry Daddy fan, after this issue, we purchased another model that has a steel/ceramic lining.
The heating element is more than adequate to "keep up" with a considerable amount of food. The recommended times that came with the documentation are accurate as well.
I probably used this 10 times or so in a year.
- Only requires 4 cups of oil: Huge plus since we don't have a membership to Costco
- Small: Can easily be stored under the sink
- Easy to operate: No buttons, just plug it in.
- Magnetic plug to the fryer: this fryer gets extremely hot when use. I don't need to touch the fryer to plug nor doesn't accidentally get unplugged.
- Good price
- The lid is plastic so it CANNOT be used while the fryer is going: Oil goes everywhere when frying...
- The fryer itself is an one piece bucket: Washing can be challenging since the plug part is completely exposed.
I do not want the plug part to get wet, yet there's no lid that can be used while frying so the oil gets everywhere.
- The Teflon coating is starting to come off in a year (10 uses or so), which is a huge disappointment
Overall I really liked it until I saw the coating starting to come off after just 1 year, 10 times or so of use.

Also, no way to control temperature - its either very hot or off.
Would not recommend. Its basically like a paint pot that gets hot!
