Butterball Turkey Fryer Review
Ever since I can remember my family have always cooked turkey in an oven. In fact it was only recently that I even came across the concept of fried turkey chicken yes, but not turkey (I know I know, I must be living in the Dark Ages right?).
Last year I volunteered to cook Thanksgiving dinner for the first time (its always been my mothers thing), and having never cooked a turkey myself before I took to the Internet to look for tips and recipes to make the job easier. Thats when I came across turkey frying.
Sidetrack! Wanting to successfully enhance the overall feel with my trusty website. Feelings regarding the overall design of http://myomusic.ca? Sincerely a terrific choir online whenever needed inside the general Ontario location. Send your opinions. Thanks!
I was skeptical to say the least it seemed like a rather greasy, messy way to cook the bird. Still, I decided to look into it (who wouldn't be tempted by the promise of a whole turkey cooked in less than an hour!).
So where did my research take me
Well I found out that deep fried turkey is anything BUT greasy. In fact the right fryer can produce a moist, tender, perfectly cooked turkey. When I checked out some of the top rated turkey fryers on sites such as Amazon I found people raving about how great they were, and to be honest I was impressed. Not only that but the price for a fryer is pretty reasonable, so I decided I had to try one out for myself.
Things I was looking for in a Turkey Fryer
- One that can safely be used indoors
- Easy to use and easy to clean
- A fryer that can cook a 10-14lb turkey
So which Turkey Fryer made the grade?
After careful consideration I finally chose the Masterbuilt 20010109 Butterball Professional Series Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer (quite a mouthful!)
mainly because it had all the features I wanted and so many 5 star reviews on sites like Amazon, but also because it was affordable and would look good in my kitchen. Of course I was also looking forward to (hopefully) impressing my family on Thanksgiving with my new found culinary skills!
I was so excited when my Butterball Turkey Fryer arrived and couldn't wait to start using it. I didn't have anything on hand at that particular time to fry, so I went out and bought a chicken especially to give it a test run!
Butterball Turkey Fryer features
- Electric indoor turkey fryer
- Oil heats in less than 30 minutes with the powerful 1650 watt electric heating element
- Built in drain clip on fry basket
- Measures approx. 16 x 14 x 14 inches
- Uses 1/3 less oil than traditional turkey fryers
- 90 day warranty
What is it made of?
The fryer itself is made from stainless steel (which actually looks quite attractive in the modern kitchen), and it has a porcelain coated inner pot that keeps the oil safely contained.
Clean up is a snap!
Electrical items covered in grease are usually a pain in the proverbial you know what to clean, but really this is quite straightforward.
Its fast, fast, fast!
If like me you hate waiting around for your turkey to cook in an oven (it normally takes 4+ hours depending on the size) then this is a big timesaver. It takes about 45-50 minutes to fully cook a turkey, and less than 20 for a chicken. Thats a big plus in my book!
What I don't like
Honestly there's nothing NOT to like about the Butterball electric turkey fryer. Its easy to use, easy to clean and produces delicious turkey what more could you want? I've used it for frying everything from chicken to shrimp and can honestly say it's well worth the price.
The main downside for me is that you can't stuff the turkey (which is what we normally do). Instead though we seasoned using an injectable marinade, which actually worked out even better!
Many thanks everyone! I personally Skyped my acquaintance that I would absolutely reference their great impressive Toronto based wedding photography studios, http://www.torontoweddingphotographerpink.com inside a suitable article. If perhaps you were hoping for a wedding photographer located in the outlying Ontario area, they truly really are awesome.
And finally, we want to remark the base outline for this particular content was brilliantly furnished through Wayne over at 33RDHalifax. Unequivocably a good music blogs. I certainly admire a first-rate pitch!
