Comparisons

Like the Proctor Silex Professional-Style Electric Deep Fryer, Hamilton Beach’s equivalent of a smaller fryer, the Hamilton Beach Professional Deep Fryer with Cool Touch allows for fast heat up and frying, and will fry with the lid closed or open.

It also has many of the same safety features: a breakaway cord, stainless steel exterior and indicator light. It is less compact at 13.1 x 11.4 x 8.6 inches, but still has a single basket and bare bones convenience. The Hamilton Beach Professional Deep Fryer with Cool Touch offers a cool touch safety feature as well as an easy to use set-up that allows you to lift the basket while the lid is still closed.

Since it is larger, the Hamilton Beach Professional Deep Fryer can fry up to 6 cups of French fries, significantly more than the snack portion sizes in the Proctor Silex Professional-Style Deep Fryer

The Presto 05420 FryDaddy Electric Deep Fryer is also very compact, easily maneuverable, and easy to store and clean. Unlike the Proctor Silex Professional-Style Electric Deep Fryer, though, the Presto FryDaddy Electric Deep Fryer does not have a basket.

Rather, it has a draining scoop, which may be messier to use. The Presto FryDaddy Electric Deep Fryer also boasts a handle for maneuverability around the kitchen, if necessary.
