Comparisons

From the same manufacturer, the Presto 05470 Stainless Steel Electric Deep Fryer is also very compact, at 8.63 x 8.25 x 8.25 inches and only 3.1 lbs. Made from stainless steel instead of aluminum, which makes for even heating.

This model has an indicator light, which the Presto 05420 FryDaddy Electric Deep fryer lacks. This fryer also boasts a vented, cool-touch cover, which fries with the cover closed to prevent mess.

The Presto 05470 Stainless Steel Electric Deep fryer also comes with a basket, which opens up a few more options.

The Hamilton Beach Professional Deep Fryer with Cool Touch, 2liter oil capacity allows for more food and oil for larger projects.
