i SUGGEST THIS ITEM FOR ANYONE WHO LIKE TO EAT THEIR FOOD HOT AND NOT WARM. BEST TO CARRY ALONG FOR HOUSE PARTIES.
My first Presto lasted almost ten years before the non-stick finish started to come off so I bought a new one last year. This one only lasted a year, I used it last week to make hot spiced cider and when I washed it, the non-stick finish came off in big shreds. I am afraid to use it now and hope I can recycle the metal. I don't think I will purchase another because of this defect. I really liked my original and am very disappointed with the newer version.
Much larger than the Presto mini fryer, but does get hotter. We used a digital temperature gauge to check the oil temperatures, and it should be noted that this can be almost 50 degrees off from what the dial shows.
This is my fifth Presto in 25-30 years. Works great as a slow cooker all way up to a deep fryer. I end up wearing the Teflon off after several years. Never had one quit working.
Nice little deep fryer, got it to do wings as I like mine fried and a little crunchy. Will hold about 15 wings at a time, perfect for one person. Basket was a little small though but suppose that was done on purpose as to not let you overfill the fryer and avoid splashing.
I wanted something I could use for everything's not and this is it. It cooks perfect rice, soups are quick, the deep frying is almost instant heat, dishwasher proof too!
The Presto Kitchen Kettle was one of the best purchases I have made in a long time. we use it almost every day for deep frying fish sticks sweet potato fries ,chicken nuggets and much more. Thanks Presto for making our lives easier and healthier.
