You can half fill the pot with salted water, bring it rapidly to a boil, and then put dry pasta in the fryer-basket and drop it in.
It ought to be able to pop popcorn -- haven't tried that one yet.
Because of the sensitive temperature control, you can create a water bath at nearly any useful temperature -- you should be able to use this device as an immersion yogurt-maker, or a Sous vide cooker (cooking vacuum-sealed food packets in a temperature controlled water bath -- a kind of dry-poaching)
And, of course it slow-cooks with the included crock liner, and deep fries with the included fry-basket. As a fryer it allows higher frying temps than many of the "consumer" countertop fryers, but is of course far less idiot-proof.
As a slow-cooker it is better than most, because you can actually set the temperature rather than using unregulated "low-high" switch settings that are never exactly correct, and often grievously wrong.Read more ›
I put pots, carrots, celery, cabbage, onions on the bottom and a whole skinless chicken on top. I added a couple hand-cups of rosemary/garlic and left it overnight at 275. The next day, I had a wonderful full course meal! When I tried that with my Rival, it cooked the chicken to a dry powdery texture. It never mattered what setting I used with the Rival, it was a joke as a crock pot.
The Presto, as a deep fryer, beats the high priced specialty units. You can put the temp on 375 - 400 and your fries will barely absorb any oil! I had forgotten how much I missed this feature from my old Daisy.
The Presto heats ultra fast for all boiling needs including pasta, blanching and so on.
This joins only a few appliances that are completely idiot-proof. It has a safety feature where the plug is magnetically attached to unit. It has a cool fry/ steamer basket and a non-stick surface on the base unit. I really, really love this product and I love buying it from Amazon's price beaters.
A bonus discovered upon it's arrival was that not only is it a slow cooker but also deep fryer, handy indeed. The removable crock makes clean up a breeze, and it's more then large enough for large dishes when a party or large family gathering warrents. The temperature control/power cord attaches to the cooker via a magnetic connection. This became detached one day after we first got the unit. No doubt due to a curious kitty, who smelled shrimp cooking.
My wife only complaint with the Presto 06001 is that the unit can get very hot, even at lower temps. The controller is in degrees and not graduated in a low-high fashion. I don't see an issue with this but then again, I'm not the cook... ahem.
In all this is a great addition to the kitchen tool crib.
This new one has a much better way of attaching the power cord. On the old one we had to plug the heat control into a very tight friction fitting. On the new cooker the control stays "plugged in" while the cord is easily disconnected at a simple, magnetically held connection. You can then safely remove the control from the
"cooled" out side pot for washing ,if neccesary.
