What reviewers didn't like

Only one temperature, which is too hot for some foods.
The GranPappy doesn’t come with a basket and the lid is plastic so it can’t be used while frying or it will melt and if not careful there may be some oil spatter.
Although it is stated that a lid can be used on the device to prevent splattering, the lid that comes with it is one that is for storage only. It is not designed to be used while the unit is being used and very well may melt.
There is no temperature indication.
The fryer lacks an adjustable thermostat making it impossible for users to control the temperature while cooking. Therefore, users can only cook at the preset temperature regardless of the kind of food being prepared.
The only thing that some consumers might not like is that it doesn’t have variable temperature control.
This deep fryer lacks an adjustable thermostat which is used to control temperature while cooking. Therefore, one is forced to use the same temperature for different kinds of food as this deep fryer has only one preset temperature setting that cannot be adjusted.
Exterior can get very hot, so be careful
Maintain the high temperatures may be expensive due to the cost of electricity
