The Bottom Line: The Presto dual pro fry deep fryer was an awesome house warming present.


The Presto dual pro fry deep fryer was a gift that I selected for myself. My step father said to pick an item out of a catalog and he would order it as a house warming gift. Hey I was not going to refuse such an offer. Especially when I wanted a new deep fryer for so long. I chose the Presto dual pro fry deep fryer because it had the best features in my opinion. It was also the biggest. I needed it to be big.

Where it was bought and how much it cost:

My step father bought me the Presto dual pro fry deep fryer from a Fingerhut catalog. He paid $99.99 for it. It was on sale from $129.99. I know he could have got it cheaper some where else, as Fingerhut tends to cost top dollar fr everything. However, he hates shopping in general, so this was his best bet.

The description and features:

The Presto dual pro fry deep fryer is silver in color and black on the top cover. It has the words Presto Pro fry on it in the top. Located near this is the turn dial that you choose your heat setting with. It reminds me of an oven knob to be quite honest. The numbers for the temps are thick and easy to read. They certainly stand out with the black background.

This deep fryer comes with two baskets, they are all metal baskets with sturdy black handles on each one that contour to your hand shape. This makes it much easier to hold on to. There is a black handle on either side of the deep fryer. They come out about 2 inches or so each. This makes it easy to lift and move the deep fryer weather it is hot or cold. The handles do not get hot at all.

The 1,800 watt immersion element provides quick preheating and fast oil temperature recover. This is perfect if you are doing back to back cooking. It has a removable heating element and enameled pot making it a very easy to clean appliance. It has a 3.5 pound capacity. This is great for cooking in bulk. Or for cooking large pieces of meat and or fish. The cover has a filter built in to it. This helps keep the oil from splattering, so it is a really good feature to have. The adjustable thermostat gives yo the opportunity to cook many items with it's many temperature adjustments. The highest beign 375 degrees.

The Presto dual pro fry deep fryer weighs about 12 to 13 pounds. It is 15.9 x 15 x 12.1 inches in measurements. The Presto dual pro fry deep fryer has a magnetic safety cord. You can't beat that. That is one of it's best features as far as I am concerned. You can put about 12 cups of oil in to it. You simply fill it to the line that stands out on the in side of the Presto dual pro fry deep fryer. 

This deep fryer comes with it's two baskets, a very detailed and long instructional manual. This manual will tell you A-Z everything that you need to know to use this deep fryer. Also you get a one year warranty. This warranty card and registration card that it comes with needs to be filled out and sent in. They are postage paid.

To clean it out:

To wash it just lift the oil pot from opposite corners when removing to empty oil. Be sure the deep fryer has been off and is cooled before you do this! Wash the removable pot, the fryer lid and the frying baskets in warm water, with mild detergent and a non abrasive sponge or washcloth, or in the dishwasher if you have one. As this is a dish washer safe product.

The control assembly lifts out for easy cleaning as well. It is not immersible though. Don not place it in water and certainly not in your dish washer! Instead just wipe it with a damp cloth to clean it. The grease filter does not need to be replaced. You can wash it with a dish brush, bottle brush or a sturdy scrubber sponge under warm running water.

What I use the Presto dual pro fry deep fryer for:

I got lucky. Finger hut threw in a free large basket that fits the whole deep fryer. I use that basket for big batches of fries or for dough boys. Also I use the small baskets for home made fish sticks, frozen fish sticks, battered fish, bacon wrapped scallops, egg rolls, chicken wings of all sorts, mozzarella sticks, chicken nuggets, chicken fingers, breaded chicken breast and much more.

My experience and recommendation:

The Presto dual pro fry deep fryer is simple to use. All I do is plug it in and wait for the red lit light to go out. When it goes out it will be fully heated to the temperature that I chose to put it on. Such as 325 for french fries that are hand cut. I then put the fries in to the basket. Place the basket in to the oil and wait for about 3 and a half minutes for the batch to complete cooking. That is all there is to it. Imagine having a fresh hot batch of fries in just a few minutes. Of course if these were shoe string size fries the time would be about a minute less. I use steak fry size fries when I make them.

I have used the Presto dual pro fry deep fryer for over a year now. It is a weekly thing. i use it at least once or twice per week at most. As we know too many greasy foods are not good for you. However, I would use it every day if they were good for me! I love the way every thing comes out just to my liking. I like things crispy and my daughter likes things soft. I remove her basket just before I remove mine. This lets both of us have our foods the way that we prefer. And at least I don't have to cook two different times considering there are two baskets to work with here.

The Presto dual pro fry deep fryer has held up to a lot of use. I would say that buying one would be very well worth your money. Why spend extra money on fast food fries when you can make them yourself. Why go buy dough boys at a stand when you can make them your self in three minutes? It makes sense and saves you money. I know it has saved me a lot over the past year. It works perfectly every time. It does not take very long to heat up. Just a few minutes to reach it's highest temperature. That is not bad at all. I would highly recommend the Presto dual pro fry deep fryer. I like every thing about it.
