Summary: I ordered this because my old Presto Fry Daddy was my favorite until it finally gave up the ghost. I used other deep fryers with lids and temperature controls and they were not suitable for quick frying like wingettes, nuggets chicken strips, and fries. If you are frying thicker items that require a longer frying time, this is not for you. Otherwise, fry grand pappy does the job quick. Tip: use a splatter shield.
Summary: Does what it is supposed to do. Heats up quickly. Recovers temp quickly after fish added Fries evenly. Love that it has a lid. I store it inside the house with the oil still in it. I run the oil thru a coffee filter after each use. That extends the life of the oil. Good Eating!
Summary: This fryer has only one heat setting....HOT! It cooks too fast. I fried chicken breast which browned on the out side but inside the chicken was not done...had I cooked it any longer the chicken would have been tough and black!!!!
Summary: This product is nota equipped with a specific temperature control which I was not aware of when buying. Without one it makes it very difficult to follow recipe's exactly. Also the lack of a fry basket was another negative. I returned the product.
Great Fryer But You Need To Know How To Prepare Chicken If You Want The Best Fried Chicken Ever And I'll Tell You How.

Summary: The secret to good fried chicken is a real crisp skin.This is a great little fryer, but with chicken you need an extra yet worthwhile step to have the best fried chicken you ever smacked your lips around. This fryer does that but not if the bone-in chicken is raw, the temp of this fryer is too high for raw, bone-in chicken and what happens is undercooked chicken, even legs. But there is a way to get around that and it makes the chicken much better anyway.
Summary: My wife fries things every now and then, and the small pots of grease usually stay on the stove and leave the smell for days. (also ruins pots). This will be so nice to have plenty of oil to fry small or large batches of food and store away neatly. ALSO GETS HOT QUICK. It also regulates its own temperature which is nice.
Excerpt: I purchased this deep fat fryer a year or two ago, primarily because our old fryer broke down - our last one wasn't a Dual Daddy. However, what I learnt from my last fryer was that my next one was going to be easy to clean! This is the main reason we picked this one. It heats up quickly and frys food to perfection. There's an insert you can place in a designated lip in the middle of the fryer in case you want to fry two different things at the same time.
Summary: best product of its type. GRAN PAPPY is excellent for chicken, fish and french fries. any fresh vegi dipped and deep fried are excellent. PICKLES dipped in batter and deep fried are very tasty .
