Hi, there is always going to be danger weather you can see or not. This being said I would not recommend this if you are looking at it as a safety factor. I would recommend one of the new cool touch deep fryers that has a lid that has a seal around it and a filter in it. This way you fill the pot to the recommend level and then put the food in the basket and then set the basket in the deep fryer but it will not be in the grease. Then you close the lid and lower the basket . These are the ones that is more safe. They are also cool to the touch. Just my recommendation.

I was wondering if any of you have used or use one of those Fry daddy fryers from Presto? I was sent one for christmas because my friend thought it would be a safer way to fry than on the stove. I know when it's hot you can't touch it except to pull out whatever food is being cooked. I think I should probably use a pair of tongs and oven mitt to use it safely. Any suggestions?

Robert's right, it has a clock, and it has some alarm features like announcing the time and temp every hour, but you need sight to set all that up.

Very easy to set up without vision and has a 10-foot probe which makes it easy to find a good place for it. It has a built in stand but comes with screws to mount it on the wall which is probably what I will do.

Instead of just doing a Google search or checking with the various companies who sell accessible products I thought some on the list might be able to offer me suggestions of units they've had success with or know about personally. I'd appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks! Hoping One Day to Defrost, Scott ________________________________ No virus found in this incoming message.
