Masterbilt, Butterball, Indoor Turkey Fryer Wed, 11/3/10 4:11 AM (permalink)
Has anyone used one of these? They claim it's the only one approved for indoor use. The regular price is $159, but I saw them on QVC tonight for $89.

I've done the outdoor, propane fired cooker for years but this looks like an easier way to go. Although, I still enjoy the adventure of cooking them outdoors, tweeking the temp control, sipping a beer or two and meticulously watching it cook. Kinda like the difference between sleeping in a pup tent and staying in a motel

    I wonder what happens when some one tries to stuff a 20lb turkey in a 12lb limit basket, you know they will. I am really surprised that any one ever allowed the outdoor method of frying a turkey, nothing like an open flame and oil..............

      We have one.  I also have an outdoor propane one.  The outdoor one comes out better but the indoor one is a lot more convenient.  There's no open flame but it does take some care to use.  It is very easy to clean and there's no way to get a 20lb bird into that fryer.  This weekend we plan to do one.

          It wouldn't fit. Their writeup says it will take up to a 14# Turkey. You can't put 10#'s of Manure in a 5# Bag! Outdoor Deep Frying a Turkey is Perfectly safe if you follow the instructions and use Common Sense---Oh, I Forgot-----Common Sense is in short supply these days!
