Presto ProFry Review & Fried Oysters

all righty then tonight is fried oyster
night so I’m going to do that in my
presto Pro fry and some people have
asked for a small review or a tutorial
on it so here it is so what I do is
because this is a gas stove or propane
and I want this on my stove where I can
use the vent hood to take any smells or
whatever goes through vent hood so I put
it on a cookie sheet just for grins this
is how I store it of course I’m doing
this with one hand I don’t really use
the lid and I got the two baskets which
I really like so hang on one second I’ll
get the baskets in so the basket handles
just fold in so all I have to do is pull
them up and lock them in excuse me Oh
racket so the handles lock in you can
see they’re very secure you can then put
the lid on I haven’t had a need to do
the lid because I don’t get a lot of
splatter I use peanut oil for frying but
this will fit right over there with
those on it I do keep this sitting on my
island just because I’m a fire Freaker
and in the event I have fire I can put
this on top of it in an effort to
smother the fire but I’ve never had so
much as an issue with this so let’s see
if I can do it with one hand and I still
have a messed up shoulder and I’m
right-handed this slides in dead easy
and on the back of it
it has clips that it slides down I did
that with one hand so could not be
easier so now I’ll add my peanut oil and
let me see if I can get a flashlight
I’ve got a flashlight and if you can see
there on the side there is a minimum and
a maximum line for your oil so they
could not make it easier it’s not hard
to see it’s only hard to see on camera
with the reflection from my vent hood
light contraption so I’m going to use
one gallon of this peanut oil I have
used this peanut oil and what I do
because I saved the oil for seafood
because that’s what we fry oysters
shrimp fish is I’ll put a piece of
cheesecloth through here I let the oil
get cool that’s in here I don’t like to
just let the oil sit in this because it
doesn’t have a firm top to it so I
strain it into a pitcher through
cheesecloth I then poured that back into
here so that’s how I do it so I’m going
to put this into the fryer now so that
one gallon got me closer to maximum
about in between minimum and maximum
you’re never going to get a full gallon
back after you use it but this will be
ample for us for frying oysters and
french fries so now put the baskets in
and one major tip to remember that I
failed to remember one time was before I
put moister fish anything in these
baskets
I want to dip them into this oil so that
they get hot my batteries fainted so I
don’t know what’s recorded and what
didn’t
anywho what I do is before you put food
into these baskets you can get one large
one is once the oil is too temperature
which is very easy to do with this dial
is before I put food into them I drop it
into the oil to get it hot then I will
put say my fried shrimp or oysters or
fish pieces in then they don’t stick the
first time I did it I had two shrimp get
stuck because I was doing so anywho it’s
not hard and one of my favorite parts of
this it has a magnetic plug in so it’s
very easy to plug this into the back I
do have to use an extension cord from
here to my plug in but that’s because I
choose to use it at my stove it is only
a two prong I just use an appliance cord
you can use any extension cord you just
course don’t want to stretch it across
the floor I mean if this were Europe
nobody has to tell you that but an
America will have to say please be
careful with an extension cord so that
you don’t trip on it okay so don’t walk
on the countertop shouldn’t have an
issue so all I got to do well if I’d
raised it up to where you could see
better when I turn this on let me try
turning down my life out arm okay can
you see the red light that came on try
again
right there if I can get my finger to
work so I’m going to turn it all the way
around to 375 and get my oil hot it
ain’t hard people it’s a low presto Pro
fryer for less than $60 I mean you can’t
beat that with a stick people all right
so here’s my oyster dipping business
flour all-purpose flour not self-rising
way making a puffy pastry people okay
and I’ve got like cumin cayenne pepper
white pepper stuff in there you can
always use Tony Asher a you can use
Emeril seafood magic just something to
pimp up your flour a little bit then
I’ve got three eggs a splash of milk and
about five drops of Tabasco because
that’s how I roll it that’s where I’m
from and then some bread crumbs these
are just my own dehydrated plain bread
crumbs not flavored because I got enough
going on right here so I’m gonna get to
dipping make a big mess oh and just so I
don’t forget what the heck I’m doing
when I go to fry something I make a note
hmm number one dip it in the flour
number two put it in some egg and some
milk number three put it in the crumbs
idiot-proof you see I like that keep it
simple it ain’t hard if you don’t make
it hard make it easy now generally when
I do this I have my friend Carol here
who is a batter and station machine so
I’m gonna have to move through it by
myself but she’s really good at this so
I’ve taken these are local Charleston
oysters from seafood house shucked fours
pour great into this low container I
rinse it out with water several times
just holding my hand over the side and
draining it and you may occasionally
find a little bit of I’m going to call
it shell but it’s more like gristle so
you can kind of feel your way through it
so now I’m a batter them and put them on
a plate still a hard let’s see if this
will work I still have a drunk tripod
super clean hands people
Queen them clean them good some believe
me one in here a so younger and this
here is a monster it’s very difficult to
keep a dry and a wet hand with these
because they’re slippery little suckers
if we love some oil is heating up and
it’s like a fried you want it fry do you
want a fried or do you want it fried
night because we’re also having french
fries from a package oh yeah not big
process people or fryers but these are
Auster’s man there can be exceptions for
things smooth should montolo breadcrumbs
okay
and I’m just going to set it over on a
plate not laying on lighting on top of
each other lately
y’all figure that out there’s not an
English major and I’m suffering so we
say our own things so I think I’m end up
using my little package too and then
we’re going to go buy a few put in order
for them and put them in a freezer love
oyster and then if you make a coaster
poor boy okay
life is like seven times as right okay
so I’ll continue with this not exciting
action and the shower turn so here’s my
fried oyster setup I got them on a plate
I’m going to dip my baskets down I’ve
got rules right I have to dip it in the
hot oil too then I wrap the plate in
aluminum numbing foil or aluminium as
they say in Britain aluminium go get it
right and some paper towels when that
fills up the hub stir is going to set
this one on top with whatever oysters we
have left so I’m waiting for the man to
come in and hold the camera’ because I
have a drunk countertop tripod that I
cannot afford to have right the big one
on the floor while I’m frying something
so I’m waiting on the man you’re waiting
on the man
we’re just waiting and I got fresh cool
so our oil is hot our red light went off
it just came back on and I have to
remember like I said earlier to drop
these into the hot oil before I stick my
oysters in there okay I’m also going to
dip my little spider in here so nothing
sticks to it but that oil is at 375
notice the light went off again fern do
you think I’ve left that sitting in
there enough okay so I’m going to pull
out one basket and this just the way I
do it is just kind of knuckle-dragging
I’m a knuckle-dragging kind of chick you
can put 900 in there if you want to and
I have the fan on
slow noisy but I’m not burning my house
down it a little in here all you do is
set them now we really like this little
presto I like the security of not
worrying about a whole bunch of splatter
and remember on island I have to cover
to this and because of the magnetic
strip in the back if I needed to unplug
this I can grab that I can take it out
of wall and I can cover this so their
food he not sticking to the bottom so
I’ll show you what they look like when
they come out okay so to turn it off all
I got to do is twist this little knob
and I dip my baskets in there just in
case there’s anything on them there
isn’t and I’m going unplug it by the
little magnet thing because it’s dead
easy to pull out so it’s unplugged I
have no worries about it you get a
little bit of splash but not a lot and
not like I have gotten with other fryers
so the way I clean these baskets and the
handle is I put them in the top rack of
my dishwasher also with a little Spidey
thing so this comes completely out and
is dead easy to clean this I simply run
hot water over it I don’t want to
submerge that in water but you can see
it has easy-to-use handles in case the
fire I’m not using those beds easy to
move it back and forth so for something
less than sixty dollars you could fry
yourself silly turn the fan off and you
can fry safely I am petrified fry in I
prefer to do it outside on my little
camp chef Explorer because I’m scared a
fire is any reasonable person would be
so the Presto Pro fry can’t beat it for
the price and it really is a great
little gadget you could then if you want
to french fries in it we’re doing it
inside of
our oven so it ain’t hard get you one
and get to frying it ain’t healthy
but it’s fixing to make us happy and I
bet this will be very healing to my
stiff shoulder so I also think this is
quite medicinal I like tartar sauce made
some he likes cocktail sauce made some
these two little Parkers are fixing too
much so it ain’t hard but it’s going to
be good F grade one cocktail sauce for
him
tartar for me a little bit of catch-up
on the side and some french fries this
is a plate of happy perhaps shoulder
healing anything could happen here yummy
and on the oysters once we drop them in
it took only two minutes once they hit
the oil and they were ready to come out
of the frame
