I bought this fryer about a month ago and what a pleasant surprise. Not only was the whole purchase experience awesome but the fryer itself was so impressive. We had an older model fryer that would only allow us to fry a 12-13 pound turkey safely and this one will do 18 pounds. It kept the temperature accurately and the turkey came out perfect. Thank you so much for such an awesome experience and product.
Bought the fryer a month ago. When opened the fryer had a nice dent in the side and the lid was bent. The shipping box looked just fine so must of happened prior to shipping. The original box was a tad beat up. Ended up keeping it because are time frame was to tight to reorder. Kind of disappointed but let it slide. Product is decent besides the darn timer. It will shut it off if you don't catch it. I know it's a safety feature though.
This is a great turkey fryer. It took me about 30 mins to put it all together which was a little annoying but easy as long as you followed the instructions. It works great. Like all new fryers out there it has the 15 min auto switch off function. The thermometer that came with mine was bent and I'm going to have to go by a local store to see if I can have it replaced. I have no idea if that can cause the temp reading to be off or not. The first use was over Thanks Giving on a 15 lb bird. ... It took 30 mins to heat the oil up and the click start wouldn't work right ( I don't know if that is my fault or not though ) but it cooked the bird excellent. I look forward to quite a few low country boils and steamed oysters. The versatility of this fryer is the reason I purchased it. So other than a few small things I would recommend purchasing this fryer if you are looking for something that will allow you to do much more than just fry large birds.
I bought this several months ago for two reasons. 1) Fry Turkeys and 2) Fry Stuffed Jalapeno. Two days before Thanksgiving and discover it does NOT INCLUDE Turkey Stand. It's a nice set but Really? Good thing I checked or I would've been screwed on Turkey morning. Ok found one in store for $6 but I had to hunt for it, they moved them to the front under a shelf. Just blows my my mind a Deluxe Turkey Fryer that does not include Turkey Stand. The
Rock cod season just opened out here one the west coast and I needed something for this years lingcod and cabezon, works great for these and also our local calamari. Wife loves it because all of the peanut oil is contained outdoors. Unit was easy to assemble, seems sturdy enough. The included shelf was a nice bonus. The wind screen around the burner really helps with the efficiency of the flame. I consider this unit a real bargain for the asking price.
Bought this on the way to the lake. Easy to assemble (no instructions), side tray was awesome and regulator has a variable gas control knob, which we used to keep the oil from over heating. When we fired it up the first time, no soot, no smoke, no problems, with the air shutter set in the middle. Gas control was about 10 turns so there is a lot of adjustment available. Pleasantly surprised to see an almost invisible jet flame roaring out of the aluminum burner. Windy, 75 degree day, but ... the skirt is very much closed, shielding the gas flame from the Oklahoma wind. We loaded it up (separately) with frozen breaded okra, hush pups, breaded shrimp, frozen potato wedges and refrigerated fish. On the highest flame, we had to keep turning it down to keep the oil under 400 degrees. A long high temp thermometer was also in the box, although it was not listed. This thing exceeded my performance expectations in every way. As for durability, we'll wait and see, the aluminum fry pan/ lid and burner assembly were pretty light weight aluminum so you'll have to pack them away carefully. If I replace the fryer every 5 years, I'll still be thrilled. You cant go wrong with this fryer. With Academy's $5.99 heavy duty skimmer tool and a gallon of peanut oil, you'll be happy you bought this fryer.
Before I used a Coleman gas stove and a cast skillet for smelting my lead for casting. It worked but took too long for the amounts of lead I had available. With this fryer stand and a $30/5 quart cast iron pot from Walmart I can smelt close to ten times the amount in about the same time. This is the dirtiest part of the job and leave more time to enjoy the pleasures of casting, reloading, and range time. I'm extremely happy with this set-up.
my old turkey frier died so i had to get a last minute one and found this fryer stand. it said not to cook turkey( most likely a legal thing since it doesn't have an automatic shut off valve in case the temps reach 400) but, it cooked turkey great.
This unit is the most wonderful boiler I've ever owned. 72 years old and I can boil 3 sacks of crawfish by myself without any help. Do they make fryers like this design?
Worked great, so much more convenient than a large pot and burner. Came to a boil in about 24 minutes. Worked like a champ!
So happy with my fryer. I've fried numerous 12-15 lb turkeys, and a few fish fry's as well. Key is to get your turkey as close to room temperature as safely as possible, and set the oil temp higher before dropping the turkey to avoid dropping the oil temp too low. Took a few fry's to figure that out. Great fryer!!! Might invest in the XL for holidays.
Purchased this during the Black Friday sale and saved 20.00. I've always wanted one of these. My wife has made a 12 pound turkey in it with no problems. The turkey looked delicious, I'll be home for Christmas so that I can make one for the family. I can't wait to try it. She and the kids loved the deep fried turkey and can't wait to make another one.
I just started home brewing and this was definitely a great choice and I couldn't find a better price for the overall. This model puts out the BTUs I need for my 40 quart brew pot and sits very stable on four legs. The strong construction will last me for quite some time, probably forever. A solid column of flame got my 6 1/2 gallons of beer wort up to a rolling boil out on the deck in 20 min. (in the middle of winter at 30 F). Cons: It can be adjusted down to simmer smaller pots, but it's kind ... of touchy and puts off a lot of soot at the lower settings. The thermometer that comes with it is not very accurate either, but hey, it's a freebie.
I've only used this once, so can't speak to long-term use. However, it quickly brought my 3+ gallons to a boil. Used it for homebrewing and thought it worked great. Keep in mind I had been using the stovetop previously, so of course it would be a great improvement. Plenty of BTU's, stable for large kettle, adjustable flame. Also, in contrast to the other review, my thermometer appeared accurate. Overall, I would say it is a good deal and I plan to buy another. Free shipping too!
Our group of friends get together many times during crawfish season and so far 3 of us each bought one of these. We were able to cook the crawfish quickly and efficiently. Not a lot of clean up either. 5 stars!
I absolutely love this unit. I actually was able to do 3 smaller sacks of crawfish in it, about 90lbs. I've boiled the old fashioned way for years, but this made it so much easier. Thanks to the drain valve, you can purge and clean them in it. Then boil them in it. We even put some dishwashing soap in it after the boil and washed our platters and stuff in it! It takes about 35 minutes to bring it to a boil which isn't bad considering the volume that's in it. Once you've used a boiler like this, ... there is no way you can go back to the old way.
I bought this pot and it's been great, works very good. I've read the other bad reviews about the pot taking too long to come to a boil, it's probably because they were trying to boil it with a lot of wind outside or not blocking the wind. I've not had one problem bringing the pot to a boil. Great pot!
Used this boiler for the first time this weekend, and it worked great! This design is much safer than a regular pot and burner. With those I was always worried about one of the kids or the dogs knocking the pot off of the stand. With this one it is very stable and the one piece construction won't allow that to happen. The drain valve is a very nice feature also. It's hard to dump an 80qt. pot full of water. This makes clean out MUCH easier. Very happy with my purchase.
I bought this fryer to add to my existing regular sized butterball fryer in effort to expand the limitations of turkey size, and the volume of other meal sizes. Boy was my purchase a great investments! After numerous combinations of fried turkey orders, not only were my customers completely satisfied but, my family gatherings will never be the same!!!!. Job well done Masterbuilt!
I have had the opportunity to fry several turkeys in this fryer and can say this is the best Device to fry and also steam a shrimp boil.
I used this cooker for the first time last night. I have been cooking crawfish the old way for 8 years. This thing is amazing. I have a big boil coming up and it's going to be way more pleasant cooking for it. Only down fall I see and it takes a while to clean and for shorter people it's hard to get on it's wheels to move. But if you flip the handle upside down it makes it way easier to pick up on its wheels!!! Will recommend to everyone!!!!!
I was searching for a large quantity tip-able boiler. All others were well over the $1000 mark. I was a bit hesitant to purchase this because I was afraid the affordable price would mean compromised quality. This boiler was at a rolling boil in 26 minutes (I timed It) I was able to do 90lbs of crawfish faster than our other traditional pot was able to do 30lbs.
This a great crawfish/shrimp boiler. Got water to boil in about 20 minutes, easy clean up. I actually enjoy the cooking now, not just the eating. Very sturdy and well made.
I bought one and it is so easy to use. My husband had a stoke years ago and only has use of one hand.He loves boiling seafood and is just great for him to use.
Completely awesome!!! Get your boil rolling in no time!!!
I purchased this on-line because we couldn't seem to find it in the store. Order processing was extremely easy, arrived quickly. We really like the side table attachment for ease when handling large pots.
