Fried foods is a favourite for many people, however, if the food is not well prepared one might grow to hate fried foods. Whether you are frying for home or commercial purposes, frying tasty foods starts at the type of deep fryer you use. The Presto 05411 GranPappy Deep Fryer understands this and works to deliver top quality cooking results. The fryer makes great tasting fried foods and automatically maintains constant temperatures throughout cooking to ensure fast and even results. As the name suggests, it features a classic style but with well thought-out features to ensure you get satisfying results with every use.
Features and Specifications
Heavy Duty Cast Aluminium Construction
The excellent choice of materials makes the fryer capable of withstanding very high temperatures. Aluminium has a very high boiling point and since the fryer uses heavy duty cast aluminium throughout its construction, it can be used for long hours without suffering damage. The construction also enables the fryer to cook foods within a very short time while delivering great results. The material is also very durable and combined with non-stick element, becomes much easier to clean. It also does not rust which ensures that it does not react with the foods being cooked.
1500-watt Heating Element
The Presto 05411 GranPappy Deep Fryer power consumption level is ranked to be midrange. This means that while it does not promise to use little power, it will not blow up your energy bill either. It is fitted with 1500 watts heating element and internal thermostat that helps automatically keep oil at optimum temperature. The fryer gets hot fast which drastically reduces cooking time and makes it energy efficient. All electric properties of the fryer are based on North American Electrical Standards thus ensuring safety.
One unique aspect of the Presto GranPappy is that it lacks the basic basket used to lower and raise foods from the oil. Instead, the fryer includes a slotted spoon that is used to lower food into the oil, and take it when it is ready. The spoon drains out any excess oil while you raise it from the oil. The task might however be a little inconvenience to most users since it is cumbersome compared to just lifting and lowering a basket.
Magnetic Safety Cord
To prevent entanglement or tripping over the cord, Presto 05411 GranPappy comes with a short power supply cord that attaches magnetically such that if it is pulled or snagged on something, it simply pops off from the back of the fryer. This feature is handy compared to the alternative where if the cord is pulled, the fryer comes with it, and you risk spilling hot oil all around. The design may not appear as much of ingenuity but it takes the extra precaution to prevent users from being severely scalded or from starting an oil fire.
Skid-Resistant Rubber Feet
While delivering great tasting meals is a main goal for many people, safety is an aspect that cannot be overlooked. The GranPappy deep fryer is fitted with skid-resistant rubber feet to enhance its stability on the counter. This minimize risk of the fryer tipping over, ensuring that you stay safe during meal preparations. Also included is a handle with a rubber grip to allow users safely handle the fryer when it is still hot.

The Presto 05411 GranPappy Electric Deep Fryer is big enough to remain practical and small enough to store easily. Its simple design that requires no assembly makes it simple enough for anyone to use and also takes up little storage space. The fryer has no complicated control functions, you simply just need to plug it into the power source and it is ready for use.
The fryer includes a Snap-on lid that does away with need for you to drain out the oil after every use. The secure lid tightly seals the fryer so that the oil remains clean and safe. This feature is particularly helpful for regular users that find the task of draining and filling the fryer with oil cumbersome.
