Electric Turkey Deep Fryer Review

We give this Masterbuilt Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer #20010109 a star star star star star rating.


The Electric Turkey Deep Fryer is perfect for that holiday meal or for making a turkey when you just want to enjoy leftovers for sandwiches and other dishes.

It can be safely used indoors, unlike the infamous outdoor fryers that are known for causing accidents.

This fryer will fit a turkey up to 14 pounds in weight and uses a third less oil than other turkey fryers, saving you money. The fryer comes with a convenient cooking basket so you can also make donuts, onion rings, French fries, fish and more.

A built in control panel includes a timer, a red light that tells you when the unit is on, a green light that tells you the oil is hot and a control knob for choosing your temperature up to 375 degrees. The lid folds away so you can check on your food and a built in filter helps reduce cooking odors.

The inner pot is coated with porcelain for easy cleaning and a built in drain valve helps drain all your oil when you finish cooking. This fryer takes up minimal counter space and still gives you enough room to cook plenty of food. The stainless steel housing also looks great on the counter.

Positive Features

electric turkey deep fryer This Electric Turkey Fryer is simple to use. It makes frying turkeys so much safer and you get to do it indoors! Turkeys turn out perfectly most and golden brown. Chickens can be cooked in 20 minutes. They are not greasy in the least. You even get a basket so you can use the fryer to make everything from fries to shrimp.

The really neat thing is this unit does more than fry. Take out the oil and put water in and you can boil or steam food in it. This adds to its usefulness. Cleaning the machine is simple. The majority of testers found this machine to turn out good food every time. It also uses less oil than a traditional turkey fryer.

Considerations

The Electric Turkey Deep Fryer reaches the optimum temperature and then immediately cools down when the turkey is put into the oil. It may never reach optimum temperature again, depending on your machine.

Some testers related that the turkey came out dry and flavorless.

If you are feeding a large group you may have to cook 2 turkeys. This deep fryer can only handle a 14 pound turkey.

Summary

The Electric Turkey Deep Fryer is easy to use, even if you are not used to deep frying. Turkeys turn out well as long as you stick to smaller birds. Even getting to 13 pounds can make it difficult to finish on time or get the finished turkey out.

Be sure to season your bird well before cooking. To keep your oil clean, try using brining or injecting seasoning into the turkey.

This fryer is also excellent for cooking other foods like whole chickens, shrimp, fish and other delights. You can replace the oil with water and use it as a steamer or for boiling. There are very few fryers you can do this with.

This fryer is now a multi-tasking kitchen appliance that can be used more frequently than when you need to fry. The built in timer lets you know when the food is done, but does not turn the element off.
