Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love it so far I fried jumbo shrimp and Tilapia fish and timed it just right per the instructions. I don't want fish smell in my house so I did fry out side. I've been looking for a fryer since before Christmas and reading the reviews . when this went a sale while other stores didn't I grab it! I think it's a nice size. Fish cooks fast so if you need more in the basket just fry more . January 27, 2015

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Presto 12 cup Deep Fryer I like the 12 cup Presto Deep Fryer. It cooks pretty good and precise. I have fried everything I possibly can in it so I could get a feel for how it really is. On the upside it fries well but on the downside the double baskets are not big enough to hold anymore than 4 pieces of chicken at a time and this thing uses a bunch of oil so if you are health consciencous like me and use Peanut oil your looking at 30 bucks and if you use regular oil around 15. I would definately buy it again but I really think you should get the big basket that you have to buy for 12 bucks extra free because this thing is like 100 dollars. February 22, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product works great This product does just what I wanted. It works excellently and fries food evenly. The two baskets are the way to go. For a large family you can fry a lot or even for one person with the dual baskets you have a meal I.e. Chicken and French fries etc. the baskets hang well on the side to drain excess grease. I am very very happy with my product. February 18, 2014
