The Good

This fryer can cook a Turkey easily. A 14lb turkey can be done in less than an hour. The fryer also features a drain clip that makes it easier to drain and cool turkey after it is done cooking while catching drippings, plus it helps move the turkey easily without making a mess. The Butterball fryer also works to make a variety of foods such as wings, fried fish, corn dogs, fries, onion rings, jalapeno poppers as well as any deep fried Asian appetizer and desserts like donuts, turnovers and fried ice cream.

The Bad

It does use about 2 gallons of oil for frying a Turkey but it can be drained and stored in the refrigerator for later uses. While it cooks the turkey pretty fast, it does take an extra 30-45 minutes to heat the oil up evenly for cooking. The outside isn’t cool touch so it tends to get very hot so caution is required.
