Electric fish fryer?

Flagolds recent fish frying post got me thinking. Do any of you have an electrical fryer you like well enough to recommend?
Wore out a large propane fryer which worked great for the hungry crowd. Using a Coleman stove currently, but would like a go to electrical fryer for the small batches. 
Setting up a large cooker for six or eight small fillets is a little overkill.

    I've tried many and went back to frying in a dutch oven. If I had to get another, I would go back to the basic Fry Daddy or the smaller versions. More compact, uses less oil and easier to clean than those basket types.

    We use a 9 qt dutch oven for big frys and a small cast iron pot for smaller ones.

    We tried fry daddy, granddaddy fry daddy, this daddy and that over the years and the best thing we ever tried is what we're doing in the video on that NuWave.  We've cooked for up to 12 just using that and it gets used every day for something.  There's 3 wattages: 6-9-1300W so we've used it on various generators down to a Honda 1000.  All wattages work the same, simply takes 60 seconds more to heat on 900w and a full minute on 600W.  I guess the negative would be if you have youngsters there is a pot on the hot plate that can be knocked off with oil - but there's ways to remedy that too.

    Since going to this about 10 years ago we've never looked back.  Pretty remarkable run really - I hope the new ones are as reliable: NuWave Model 30532 Name: PIC Flex
