Masterbuilt 20010109 Butterball Professional Series Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer

As the Holidays are literally around the corner, we are all faced with the holiday meals that need to be prepared. For most of us, its Turkey, and just in time for the holidays, Butterball and Masterbuilt have put out an electric Turkey fryer, that can actually be used indoors.

As many know, twice a month we teach cooking classes at All Grills and More in Oviedo, FL, and at this last one, we focused on cooking Turkey. As part of this class we deep fried a Turkey, and it gave us an opportunity to give this machine a try. First, I have to say its 100 times more attractive than a big pot on a gas burner. Second, you fill it to the line with oil, turn it on, and it gets to the right temperature on its own, no monitoring the temp with a candy thermometer. Third, it has a lid, this makes it a whole lot safer than the common alternative. These 3 reasons alone make it highly worth the price, and along with the other 3 reasons, you put your Turkey in basket, lower into the fryer (carefully), and set the timer . That is it, come back (after the Turkey has cooked at 3.5 to 4 minutes per pound) and you have a dynamite fried Turkey.

Just to let you know what we used, was a 13lb Turkey, 10 to 12lb would be best in this machine, even though it says it can handle up to 14lbs. The breast on ours was slightly above the oil (submerged). We also used Peanut Oil, which is the most popular deep frying oil mainly because of its high burn point, which makes it much safer than many. But, there are also many other reasons as well, it imparts a lighter, pleasant flavor to foods, and it is healthier than most. Don’t get me wrong, eating fried foods is not good for you, but you can at least use a healthy oil, and Peanut Oil fits that bill.

If you normally fry Turkey’s, or are thinking about it, you need the Butterball Turkey Fryer By Masterbuilt. Especially for the price, you will be happy you did. Rating (5 out of 5 stars)
