Rated 5 out of 5 by bev60 great little fryer
I was looking for a fryer with a basket but in a small size for my husband and I. This was perfect. Easy to assemble and used right away. Best thing to make are french fries! I used russet potatoes and canola oil. Just drop them into the basket, lower, and leave them to fry until golden brown. Even though the basket is a little lightweight, it works very well. Easy clean-up too. And small enough to store in my kitchen. Love it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Belinda6422 The best deep fryer
This is the very first deep fryer I have. Over the years I bought different more fancier and more expensive fryers. They all work the same as a fryer but the one great difference is the convenience of cleaning up and easy maintenance which is very important to me. This is the easiest fryer to clean up next to the Kenwood brand that I purchased from Macy's many years ago which unfortunately they stopped selling here in the U.S. so, I re-purchased this brand. I have 2 of them in case I have to fry 2 different types of food at the same time. I only deep fry in them. The reason I bought them.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SassySage Nice Price and Nice Size Multicooker
Nice size for couple or small family. Recently received and used once already as deep fryer. So far pleased with it's performance. I read the customers reviews. One said after 2 ys, and five uses the nonstick surface on the interior side a piece peeled off. A second reviewer said after 11yrs of use her interior has scratches. She acknowledges she has gotten her money's worth from this unit. But she believes the scratches inside are due to her use of the metal basket. So Foodies here's a TIP: If you wish to preserve the interior cooking surface in your multicooker, DON'T USE THE METAL BASKET!!!! I also own several sizes of the electric stockpots Cooks Essentials use to offer years ago. I never use those baskets and don't plan to use the one in my Presto cooker either. I always use tongs or slotted spoons or solid or wood cooking utensils to remove my food. So take my advice or you will be complaining after extended use about your nonstick interior surfaces becoming damaged as well. Silicone covered tips on cooking utensils is even better. QVC offers these as well. David had some new Tongs on Sunday 9/27/15 show that sold out before I could get mine. K-43077 DreamFarm set of 2 "CLONGS" Sit-Up Button TONGS. Set includes one 12" and one 9". Click button feature on bottom end allows you to tap the clongs to open & close. I think that feature is neat. Bend in handle allows you sit working ends up off counter or rest on edge of a pot. They are Stainless Steel and silicone. The good news is they are available on WAIT LIST. So check on K-43077. I am on wait list now. Bye
Rated 1 out of 5 by gwengregc teflon coming off
I got this Multicooker Sept of 2013. I have only used it about 5 times. Yesterday I was cooking some fresh green beans and I noticed that something was floating in the water! It was the Teflon on the side of the cooker coming off! I have owned several of these appliances but never a Presto. I will never buy one again and I would certainly not recommend anyone else buying one!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rub Impressive
I purchased this item somewhat skeptical but to my surprise it was quite impressive. Great construction, ideal for a family of three, cooking time extremely fast. At the purchase price listed it's a steal. The QVC buyers hit this one out of the park. I am more than pleased.
Rated 5 out of 5 by fossilmom Best multicooker ever!!!!
I have used this cooker for years. It can slow cook and fry. I have even made yogurt in it.
No more of those temperature dials that are low medium or high. This one can be set at the exact temperature you need. Also, give this as a gift for the bride and groom, new apartment for the graduate. When I broke my last crock pot, this was the one I replaced it with. The asking price is good. I cook my artichokes it too. Soups, stews, ribs are wonderfull. Save your self money. This multicooker does it all.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mogrammy Does it all!!
Bought one of these for my RV. This appliance is great especially with limited space in my RV. Does great frying and slow cooking. I can brown my meat and then turn it down for slow cooking. I boil eggs and potatoes in this so I don't have to light my stove when camping. Love it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tzadii Perfect for my small family
I bought this item due to it's size and versatility. It is perfect for just my husband and I, and I only need 1 regular size bottle for frying instead of several large ones. I can even make candy in this due to the temperature staying steady and it goes up to 400 degrees. It is so easy to clean afterwards. After unplugging everything I can fully immerse it in water to wash it by hand or stick it in the dishwasher. This is such a great small appliance and well worth the price. It is a steal at this price a must have!
