Presto Stainless Steel Dual Basket Deep Fryer Review
Presto created the 05466 Pro Fry Deep Fryer with the professional cook in mind. It’s a countertop deep fryer with the ability to cook professional-style food quickly and perfectly every time.
It has to baskets that are shaped specifically to fit larger foods like fish or chicken for full-sized meals. While it could sit on the counter in any large kitchen, it’s also big enough for a restaurant has some fried items on the menu.
It holds 12 cups of food at a time, so it can really crank out some serious servings at once. The thermostat is adjustable, so you can ensure that each different food cooks at the proper temperature and comes out perfectly every time.
The signal light also lets you know when the oil is ready to fry, so you’re never left guessing again.
The best features of this professional-style fryer are that it is easier to clean and to store than typical restaurant fryers, which often seem impossible to clean and can’t be stored.
The heating element and pot remove easily from the unit, and the baskets and heating element can be stored inside the pot when you want to store the fryer.
If you’re looking for a compact fryer that will fit easily on the counter and won’t draw a lot of stares, this isn’t the fryer for you.
It’s large and is made for cooks who fry food in large amounts on a daily basis.
The price is a bit high for a home fryer as well, but if you’re a professional cook or are looking for a counter-top fryer for your restaurant, you almost can’t go wrong with this unit.
