protractor: can't find elements of element

In my tests, I need to first find a specific product, and then do some operations on some subelements of that product. There are many products.

This is my first protractor scripts so bear with me.

var prod = element.all(by.css('singleproduct')).get(1);


singleproduct
is a directive.
This is the part of the scripts which breaks:

prod.element(by.css(".product-ordering ul li")).each(function(elem) {

})


However, I always get
element(...).each is not a function


HTML:

<singleproduct ng-repeat="item in vm.products" item="::item" class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6 col-md-4 product_tile ng-scope ng-isolate-scope">
<article ng-class="{'product--active': isSelected}" class="product">
<section ng-click="toggleDetails()" class="product-content">
<!-- some prod info -->
</section>
<section>
<div class="product-ordering">
<ul class="product-quantities">
<!-- ngRepeat: option in ::priceList -->
<li ng-repeat="option in ::priceList" class="ng-scope">
<!-- this is the LI I want to catch...
</li>
<!-- end ngRepeat: option in ::priceList -->
<li ng-repeat="option in ::priceList" class="ng-scope">
<!-- this is the LI I want to catch...

</li>
<!-- end ngRepeat: option in ::priceList -->
<li ng-repeat="option in ::priceList" class="ng-scope">
<!-- this is the LI I want to catch...
</li>
<!-- end ngRepeat: option in ::priceList -->
</ul>
</div>
</section>
</article>
</singleproduct>

Answer

each() function will work only with array. but prod.element(by.css(".product-ordering ul li")) will return you a ElementFinder and not ElementArrayFinder. you need to use product.all() instead of product.element(). Look at below example.

prod.all(by.css(".product-ordering ul li")).each(function(elem) {

})
