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

I decided it was worth an attempt to fix the inaccurate/low temperature issue since otherwise the unit was going into the trash. Upon disassembly I discovered a very crude adjustable temperature regulator (bi-metallic strip combined with sprung mechanical contacts- see pic). By removing the rotation stop (metal "Q" looking ring pressed on shaft) I could "turn up" the set temperature until I reached the desired 350-375 deg. F the unit should peak at from the factory. The indicated dial on the knob is of course worthless, but at least now I can get my oil to appropriate temperature using my Thermapen.
On the frying, ease-of-use and ease-of-cleaning ends, this fryer doesn't disappoint. It's heats fast and cooks fast, settings are easy to use, and cleaning is a breeze. The housing wipes clean, and so does the oil tank after you've emptied it. No impossible-to-clean, sticky residues anywhere...
Now, about the filter... A filter only works if the steam goes exclusively through it. It doesn't; it comes out almost exclusively through the handle opening up front. So if you're thinking of getting this fryer for the filter (like I did), don't bother...
As far as the handle is concerned, the basket lift mechanism is a bit flimsy, and the handle is hard to get into the guides. The design could definitely be improved.
That being said, it's a good fryer. The round basket makes it easy to get uniform results. No more shaking the basket all over the place so fries won't stick to each others, or be crispy only on one side. The size is great for a family of 4. I didn't test the oil temperature, but the heating plate heats well enough to allow you to deep fry most items fast without oil residues. I had to blot my fried items much more with my Waring fryer (which has submerged heating elements).
If I could make any improvements to this fryer, it would be:
- A better-sealed cover so the steam actually goes through the filter
- A sturdier, better designed basked lift
- A longer cord (the cord is about 2 ft.)
TIPS: DO NOT fill the tank to the MAX FILL line. The line is about 1/8 inch too high and the burning oil will spill all over the place as you lower the food into it. So make sure you fill the tank between the MIN and MAX fill line, but NOT up to the MAX fill line.
I use peanut oil to fry, which has a higher smoking point, doesn't smell and lasts longer. Filtering the cold oil after use is a breeze using a large sieve layered with a good-quality paper towel; the oil comes out super clean and ready for the next round of frying!
had a black handle, instead of white(which really doesn't matter, but as you can see in the picture-the handle is white) the dial for the temperature wasn't even working, the bottom of the fryer was not clean-had stains around it and the top near the vent was not smooth...like little bumps..maybe repainted??? It never got hot...If I could I would give it a zero I would...as it was packaged to look new, but clearly something different about this compare to my previous 2 CoolDaddy...will never buy again, and if I do..I will open ASAP!!! Piece of Junk..just wasted my money, didn't even work the first time!!!!
