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.
This turkey fryer burns hot and has a nice sturdy base but the burner has a kill switch on a timer that shuts it off every 15 minutes if you don't turn the dial. This is aggravating since you need it to run well over an hour or two to fry a turkey.
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 got the fryer in and went to cooking have done two turkeys in less than two weeks and have been asked to do a Turkey and some chickens on new years. It is easy to use just make sure you follow all the safety instructions. The only down side I found is for a gourmet set it was lacking the stand to fry your turkeys.
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.
The deep fryer was great the only problem the pan was dent and it's hard to put the other pan inside of it
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.
This fryer stand is built very strong. You do not have to be concerned about the weight you put on it I weigh over 200 lbs and I can stand on it with no problem.
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?
Got water to a boil right around 20 minutes, and cooks great! Very easy to use!
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.
Ordered this product through a link on Coupon Cabin. I was happy with how quickly the item came, box was undamaged and solid. I was unhappy however, at the fact that Coupon Cabin didn't give me my incentive rebate because they said that Academy didnt give them their cut (for sending customers to their site). This was very sketchy to me since Coupon Cabin is the reason why I purchased from Academy. Anyway, the product worked wonderfully... fried my turkey like a champ!
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!
Great product! Loved it! It boils in 30 minutes. Best boiler ever! Oh, And my dog can't light his tail on fire anymore.
Completely awesome!!! Get your boil rolling in no time!!!
Purchased an outdoor pot and it was what we expected and even more. Thank you
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.
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.
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 use this jet cooker to boil maple sap. It's the fastest I've found. Careful when you get to the bottom of your pot as the flame, if left too high, will scorch the sap. Bring it down low, but finish it off on your stove. It won't work as a finish cooker. I just wish this company didn't ship using FedEx. That company makes too many mistakes in my part of New England.
