    Works like any appliance filled with hot oil!, April 1, 2010

    Have been using this fryer for months. It’s great!

    That said, yes, most everything the one, two, and three-star raters said is true.

    It get’s hot. Yes, it’s “cool touch” when compared to the original metal Fry Daddy. If you touched those, you got burned. If you touch this, it’s just hot. But what do you expect…it’s 375 degrees.

    It doesn’t get hot enough. Yes, it only goes to 375 degree. I’m guessing there’s liability issues at play and small appliance manufactures probably don’t want to market a home fryer that’s over 400 degrees for fear of being sued when someone burns their house down. If you put a truckload of fries in there, you have two choices: fries that are just done, or greasy crispy fries. I think this has to do with dropping too many frozen fries at once dropping the temperature. I opt for plan B, I fry them in smaller batches so I can have them crispy without soaking up too much grease. I think it’s safe to say the same is true of every other home fryer.

    The door is spring loaded. Yes, you will want to release the lid with one hand and ease the lid up with the other.

    It generates steam. Sure enough, it’s hot and when you drop a basket filled with moisture-heavy goodies it’s going to produce a lot of steam. Keep you hands away!

    It holds oil, it gets hot, it cooks stuff. All-in-all a considerable improvement over the old Fry Daddy. (Or putting an open pot of oil on the stove!) I like the basket, the lid, and ability to clean it. I feel much more comfortable loading the basket, putting it in, closing the lid, and then lowering the basket into the oil than I did chucking things into my old Fry Daddy and hoping to not get splashed or scalded. But please, make no mistake, it’s a FRYER. I think it’s considerably safer than the old Fry Daddy but you still need to be careful.

    Works exactly as advertised, have had no problems. Fairly easy to setup. Easy to clean up compared to frying in an open skillet and having to clean the entire work space. Actually, very little needs cleaning, just the basket, the insert and the inside of the lid, and unless you spill oil on the outside of the fryer, there is nothing to clean on the outer shell of the fryer. Really nice feature, being able to put the food in the basket and closing the lid prior to lowering the basket into the oil, totally eliminates the danger of hot oil burns. Very happy with our purchase.

    I bought this fryer based on all the positive reviews here at Amazon and I am quite happy with my purchase! Amazon had a sale on “damaged box” fryers for considerably less than the “new” price (clicked on the “used” marketplace items — it was actually new and sold by Amazon, not a marketplace seller) but the box had never been opened and the fryer was in perfect condition, as per their description. I have been very happy with this fryer — my only prior experience was with a “frybaby” and this is a night and day difference! The basket is huge — I was able to cook my low-carb fried clams in only two batches, rather than the five or six I had to do with the fry baby. And this one is so much safer!!! I love the way the lid closes and then you lower the basket down into the oil safely! And the outside does stay cool!! I make sure to put a hand on top of the lid before pressing the button to open it, and it opens nice and slowly without popping up. The oil was plenty hot enough for my clams and they cooked in record time, too. I did a LOT of research on fryers before purchasing this one, and for the price there is really no comparison with any other fryer on the market right now — you could probably get a similar or better one, but you’re going to pay a LOT more for it. The deciding factor was when I did a video search for “cooldaddy fryer” on the ‘net and found some videos of these in action — that’s a good way to see all the features and how large they are before purchasing one.
