Presto ProFry Stainless-Steel Dual-Basket Immersion-Element 12-Cup Deep Fryer

My little nephew LOVES fried chicken! So for his 6th birthday, his mother (my sister) decided to fulfill his fat-laden dreams and gave him a birthday party filled with finger-licking fried goodness. Food preparation was a breeze thanks to this Presto Deep Fryer!

It worked like a charm and "fried" what would've been hours of cooking (and possible burns from oil spatters) by half. The unit has a generous capacity which enables you to fry two kinds of food or extra large batches of the same type of food at once. It has an adjustable thermostat and a signal light which indicates if the oil is hot enough for frying.

Take note that the temperature of oil holds the key for proper frying of food. If the oil is not hot enough, oil will reach the food before the coating cooks enough to form the protective layer, resulting to greasy food. To heat the oil to a uniform temperature, try moving the oil around a bit.

The deep fryer comes with a spatter shield helping you avoid those nasty burns from the oil spatters when lowering your food into hot oil. The pot is made of enamel so cleaning was easy. I can say that it contributed to the party's success, any my nephew ate far too much!
