Default Electric turkey fryer

I have been frying turkeys for 15 yrs and always use a propane cooker with no problems.

I see now there are some electric turkey fryers on the market, has anyone ever used one and how well do they work

I was talking about this just yesterday. I notice that the new gas burners require reseting the gas supply every 10 minutes. I'm not interested in that much screwing around. Thought the electric version might be more simple. I opened the Christmas Cabella's book last night but didn't see any.

I'm interested in where this post leads.

I am currently heating my oil as I type in my Electric turkey fryer! I've been using it now for the past 4 years...It's so easy and safe. In my basement might I add!!

Suggestion regarding those turkey fryers; if it ain't UL approved, run, don't walk, away from it. If UL won't certify a turkey fryer there is a damn good reason why not, the same reason that you should avoid them.

Just dropped the bird into 400 degree peanut oil......42 minutes later, done! The only way to fry and eat a Turkey!

Tip is to SLOWLY drop the bird in, that's where most of the accidents happen....

The only complaint I've heard is that they don't recover as quickly after you drop the bird in.

I think he means regain their starting temp after the bird is put in.

glacierbaze is right. With oil I can drop a bird in 375 oil and it will drop to around 290-300 but I can get it back to 350 very quickly. I have heard, as in not seen first hand, that the electric fryers won't climb back as quick.
