One day while surfing the net I stumbled across the Fry Baby - 2 cup miniature deep fryer.  Seeing as I hate the hassle that goes with home frying, I was intrigued.  The prospect of frying quickly and with such little oil was very appealing.   Sadly, upon searching the internet,...

Pros great for fries & onion rings, lid for oil storage, handle for easy transport
Cons no temp control, no power switch or heat indicator

I've had an electric Presto FryDaddy Deep Fryer for several years now, having bought it specifically for foods such as french fries, onion rings, cream cheese-stuffed jalapenos, and fried pickles.

They're really inexpensive, as far as kitchen tools go, costing around $30. They can be... Read full review »

I was given a Presto Fry Daddy Deep Fryer when I moved out of my parent’s house and headed to college about fifteen years ago. I have used it for many years until about two years ago when I purchased a larger deep fryer. I always liked my Fry Daddy and used it at least once a week. In... Read full review »

Pros Does not work
Cons Does not work
Recommended it? No

We bought a FryDaddy and only used it 3 times .. it worked great until last night when it didn't work at all. It was working and then just stopped. Don't know why but we are very unhappy with an appliance that only works 3 times then is of no use at all since it won't heat. Read full review »

Cons No controls, no indicator that oil is heated
Recommended it? Yes

Several years ago, we purchased a Waring DF200 Professional Deep Fryer. It is a large unit that holds an entire gallon of oil! However, there came times when we wanted to deep fry either small amounts of food, or food that would in essence "ruin" the oil, for example, deep fried Oreos (not... Read full review »

After fifteen years of heavy duty use, I may be retiring my Fry Daddy. Then again, I may not. Old faithful is still sitting on the cabinet, and unless I really love my new fryer, I may continue using an appliance that has given service way above the call of duty.

Pros Nice basic cooker - great size for two people.
Cons Non-stick interior doesn't stand up - flakes off in your food.
Recommended it? No

This was such a nice basic deep fat fryer for our needs, but after using it less than 15 times, the non-stick interior started appearing on our food in little flecks. Too bad, as we loved this little cooker. We are tossing it and looking for all stainless steel. Read full review »

Pros Does as advertised, if plugged-in.
Cons Hard to keep clean - unreliable connector.

If you've read the other reviews on the Frydaddy in it's various forms, you should have a good idea of how it works.

I'm offering this review at my wife's insistence, it's all about the dadgum "improved" power connecter. The unit we have is model 05424, and we advise against it.

Pros Cheap, small, minimalist fryer

I bought a Fry Daddy because it was cheap, and I did not think I would deep fry often enough to justify spending more money on a fryer with more features. I also lack counter space, and the Fry Daddy was the perfect size. The one I had did not have a nonstick bowl and cost around $25. It came with... Read full review »
