Questions & Answers

8Questions27Answers

what are the dimensions of the frying basket?

Asked by Dee November 3, 2019
5
Answers

I don't have the dimensions but returned mine because it was so small. No way it would hold 8 cups and you are supposed to only fill it 3/4 full.

Where can I purchase filters for lid?

Asked by me1 October 28, 2019

Answers

Yes, I bought mine 2 weeks ago. We love it. Where can we purchase the filters

How many chicken wings can you cook at a time?

Asked by Marty January 20, 2019
5
Answers

I did 6 at a time and had full coverage. It took a long time to cook enough for a party, but for 2-4 people it's not bad. I hold the wings in the oven (after tossing in a sauce) as the other cook. This process allows the sauce to absorb into the wing more and makes the wings less sloppy.

How much can you fry at one time

Asked by Chocolate August 11, 2018

Answers

No way it will hold 8 cups, that would be pressed down and maybe heaping. AND you are supposed to fill it only 3/4 full.

can we do fryer fish??

Asked by Luis August 3, 2018
2
Answers

The Presto® ProFry™ immersion deep fryer is excellent for frying fish. Recipes and time tables are available in the User's Manual. If you choose to fry with a wet batter, such as a beer batter, we recommend not using the basket as the coating may stick to it. If you have any further questions or concerns regarding your deep fryer, feel free to contact Presto Customer Service Department Monday-Friday 8:00am - 4:15pm Central Time, by phone at 1-800-877-0441 or visit our website at www.gopresto.com You can also email us at contact1@gopresto.com

Leave oil in fryer

Asked by DEB February 21, 2016
5
Answers

I leave it in, but cover everything with aluminum foil to prevent dust/nugs, because the lid leaves openings where the handle sits.

Specifications state filter located in lid is not removable. How would I clean it?

Asked by oldsquare1 February 2, 2016
2
Answers

I cleaned mine with a damp microfiber cloth.

Do you pour oil over the exposed eheating elements

Asked by Wil December 29, 2015

Answers

I fill with oil first, then set the heating element in, then turn it on.

Does not exactly reach the intended temp (as checked with a calibrated Thermapen), but it effectively fried chicken wings nice and crispy, so not really complaining.

It cooks very well, and I like the smaller size. Most of the higher wattage deep fryers were larger than I like. I don't deep fry very often and like to tuck it away until I need it. I like the controls, and the unit is very solid and functional.

This fryer is easy to use; I've gotten great results far. Many fryers these days are limited to 350 degrees. This one gets up to 375 degrees - the higher temperature is necessary in order to fry some foods correctly.

DISAPPOINTMENT! this is advertised on Presto's site, here, and others as holding being able to fry 8 cups at a time. The basket at most is 6x8x2.5, and you're supposed to fill it only 3/4 full. I'm not sure you could pack 8 cups of brown sugar in this! It's going back as soon as possible.

I didn't give it a 5 star because there is no way to store the oil in it and because of the loose fitting lid. The second thing is that the heating element can'f really be washed, just wiped clean. Otherwise clean up is a breeze. Fries excellent, reheat temperature is quick thanks to the higher watts. Holds a lot of oil and the basket is great.
