The Masterbuilt Propane Turkey Fryer is a solid heavy duty turkey deep fryer, which will give you years of deep frying fun.
This is a simple no nonsense turkey fryer kit: You’ll get a pretty decent turkey deep fryer for less than a $100.
The fryer’s cooker stand is stable and well made. The pot is large enough to handle an 18 pound turkey.
The kit consists of a 15 inch cooker stand with a cast iron burner and an aluminum 30 quart frying pot. Accessories like a turkey hanger hook and lifting handle come with the kit along with a deep fryer thermometer that smartly mounts through the lid is also included.
Only thing you need to get started is peanut oil, a tank of propane gas and a bird.
A safety feature on the Masterbuilt propane turkey fryer that not everybody likes is the electric timer. The timer is made to prevent the turkey fryer from overheating if left unattended.
The timer requires you to press the button every 15 minutes, if not the gas will shut off.
I understand that some strongly dislike this feature. However, I believe it’s not smart to leave a couple of gallon boiling hot oil and a propane burner unattended.
For those who want to bypass this safety feature, search YouTube, there are a couple of videos showing you how to do it.
