cool to the touch.
The 1800 watt immersion element heats up the oil quickly and efficiently. The element
can be removed for cleaning just like the oil pot.
The digital display makes it easy to set your
temperature and time. The 30 minute timer lets you cook your food with precision. The basket makes
it easy to add and remove your food from the hot oil.
The Presto Deep Fryer is very simple to use. A red light is on while the oil is heating. When the
oil is ready, it beeps and a green light comes on instead of the red one.
The timer lets you keep
track of your food's progress. You can set the digital temperature control to one of 4 different
temperatures: 300, 325, 350 and 375.
The cord attaches magnetically so if it gets caught on something
it will detach rather than spill the hot oil. The oil temperature is maintained well and reheats
quickly between batches of food.
The basket hooks onto the top of the pot to allow the hot food to
drain before eating. You can fry enough for two or three people in the basket. The oil pot holds
about a gallon of oil. The removable pot makes it easy to remove the oil from the fryer.
