Masterbuilt Butterball Electric Turkey Fryer
Could be better
Used 2 times the first weekend I got it. Did chicken wings and french fries both times. The oil does take a good while to heat up. Food came out great. Every time I have used since, it's been a battle to get the thing to power on. The safety switch that is in place is very touchy. I have to play with the heating coil for almost 15 mins to get it to sit properly so the switch is sitting where it will keep the power on. I ordered this about a month ago, and saw where there is a different looking model on ITKWD. Hopefully the have fixed the issue with that model. Just wish I knew there was an updated model before I got this one.
this the best purchase i got from qvc
and is1 st time i have a fryer turkey we all love it i will not put it in over any more
Very good product
I used for Thanksgiving and was kind of leary of using a turkey fryer but the results were realy great not greasy and a great taste
Love this fryer
This is my first experience with any sort of turkey fryer. I have been wanting one for awhile but did not want to deal with the hassle of propane. Got it as a TSV. So glad that I did. We put it together and used it on Thanksgiving day. We did a 10 lb. turkey. It was delicious. My family was so happy about the taste and ease that the turkey was done. Left more space in the oven for the sides.
It is large and takes up a decent amount of space but don't let that deter you from buying this fryer.
Simply the Best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love this fryer!!! I used it for Thanks Giving to fry my cornish hens and they were fried to perfection. The most beautiful golden brown skin.I also bought the accessory kit and the book to go with it. If you are skeptical dont be, it comes fully assembled and easy to use. Im so glad i purchased it as i was in need for a new deep fryer, this product is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love Love Love
I am soooo excited!!!! I fried chicken, steak fries and meat pies Wednesday... great!! Fried our injected marinade turkey 12.5 lbs in 45 minutes!!!! Best part??? Proving to my husband we coud really USE IT IN THE KITCHEN!!!
Just now drained it... Took no time at all... Worth every TODAY SPECIAL VALUE DOLLAR I SPENT ON IT!!!!
great kitchen appliance
Just used the fryer to prepare our thanksgiving turkey. My husband said it was the best turkey I have made so far. Was really easy to use and to clean. Used right on my kitchen counter and felt very safe doing it. Would highly recommend to anyone who has wanted to fry a turkey.
A HUGE THANKSGIVING DAY DISAPPOINTMENT!!!
I bought this updated version of one that I had previously purchased a couple of years ago. This one, unless I received the wrong one, would not even come close to holding a twelve pound free range, fresh turkey. The turkey would not even sit in the basket.
What a disappointment on Thanksgiving day. I had to drive back home and get my old one, which barely holds a twelve pound turkey, but does get the job done if you flip the turkey over mid-cooking.
After rereading the instruction booklet more closely, it says that you should only use a Butterball turkey. They don't tell you that in the demo or on the box.
I would only consider using a free range, organic bird. So this will be going back asap.
You would think that they would have the decency to tell you this on the outside of the box, so you would know that you cannot use it unless you by a certain turkey, or when the show host demos this product they should mention this rather than risk a lot of unhappy customers.
Hands down BEST TURKEY EVER!!!!
My husband was skeptical but said that this was the best turkey I have ever made!! We were concerned about the safety of an inside turkey fryer but this was a snap! With just the 2 of us, I got a 10lb bird that cooked in 40 minutes....crispy golden brown skin, super moist inside, completely done, amazingly flavorful with just a generic "chicken rub" outside before frying. NOT greasy..in fact we recovered all but about 1/2 cup of oil when all was said and done (started with just slightly under 2 gallons of peanut oil). Cleanup was actually easier that roasting and the rest of the dinner cooking was done while the bird did it's thing unattended in the fryer. You have GOT to try this!!!
BEST THANKSGIVING TURKEY EVER!!!!!!
We fried our first Thanksgiving turkey ever and after having the moistest, juciest, turkey cannot think of ever having another turkey that just roasts in the oven. My husband and son said it was the best Thanksgiving dinner. Thank you QVC for such a wonderful product.
Now I'm A Believer
I was not sure that I wanted to go to a deep fried turkey from the traditional one. This as TSV one day and I watched the presentation and thought that even I could do this. Thanksgiving Day came and my 13.73 pound Turkey was sitting out fully injected with seasoning and rubbed with lemon pepper - my preference. For just a moment I thought maybe I should have had a back up meat like, ham or somethng just in case. But 54 minutes from lowering it into the fryer we pulled out the most beatiful bird with the best turkey I have had in a long time. And another part I liked was that the oven was free for my side items. Love this product.
Dadgum Great Product
Not only makes a great-tasting turkey easy to make, but the clever design allows me to drain the oil easily, and wash the whole thing up in the dishwasher! I am looking forward to trying catfish, pork chops, and Cornish hens in the fryer as well.
