Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by The fryer is just what I wanted as it had temperature controls which are not always available. I am pleased to have this fryer. It has temperature controls which are not always available. I had purchased the same brand deep fryer only to realize that it had one temp setting. I was packing it up to return when my husband got on the computer and started searching for the fryer I had planned to buy. I would never have thought to look at Home Depot, but that is what he found. He ordered it and picked it up at the store to save shipping costs. It was here faster than estimated and it is just what I wanted. VERY PLEASED WITH product and HOME DEPOT. Thanks so much. Highly recommend this product and store. May 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fry Fry Baby!!! This a fantastic fryer!!! Very easy to use, very "cool" and I feel that the way it is set up keeps it very safe. Cleaning the product is fairly easy, if there was only one thing that I would do is buy a funnel so that you can easily empty the oil. Great, simple instruction manual with a couple of good recipies. If you are looking for a stand alone fryer, look no further, you have found your fryer!! May 7, 2007
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT PRODUCT - EASY TO USE Excellent buy. Very easy to set up. Just insert the oil bucket, add oil, plug in and it's ready to use. DOES NOT HAVE A POWER SWITCH, so make sure that if you plug it in you have oil in the bucket. The power cord is short to reduce the cord clutter; I like that the cord attaches in the back of the unit with a magnet, this is to prevent accidental pull of the unit if someone gets tangled up. The lid is removable for easy cleaning. The oil bucket is also removable for easy cleaning, this is very nice. Just add oil and plug in. The basket is nice and large. I close the lid during warm up time, and add the food to the basket over my kitchen sink. This prevents any excess crumbs from dropping into the oil and keeps it 'cleaner'. After the oil is nice and hot I insert the basket and first close the lid. And only then lower the basket into the hot oil. This feature is very nice because it prevents platters of the hot oil. The viewing window is a little too small, but adequate, but it does steam up and makes it hard to see the food. Overall, this is a very nice unit, easy to use, clean and store. December 28, 2009
Rated 4 out of 5 by its efficient...and very good quality first time use was fun watching it produce, my wife deep fried pork chops... perfection, and the taste was amazing ( partly because of the ease of deep frying) . The only problem was the little window stayed fogged so you couldn't actually see the food deep frying..! All in all, still a great deep fryer!!! No problems with it yet... hopefully we wont have any! So far its lived up to all of the reviews. April 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy as it gets! I have used my CoolDaddy several times over the past couple weeks and enjoy the ease with which I can make french fries or small meat pastries. Last evening I fried 4 pieces of chicken and it turned out great. The temperature control allows me to have fried foods that retain much less grease compared to using a skillet. The instructions recommend that grease be strained when necessary to remove particulate matter from batters and such. This can be a labor intensive and messy affair, depending on how you do it. Have a supply of cheesecloth available to do the straining. January 29, 2010
