Updated on August 30, 2013

electric turkey fryer - indoor turkey fryer

Have you ever thought about purchasing an electric turkey fryer - an indoor turkey fryer? It will enable you to prepare some awesome American recipes! You kow the turkey was almost our national bird, right? I LOVE fried turkey, and so does the rest of my family. Every Thanksgiving, we fry two or three outside. We also fry them at other times of the year when we have guests over, and sometimes just for ourselves! If you’ve never experienced fried turkey, you don’t know what you’re missing! Okay, you know how the skin on a baked turkey is kinda rubbery and pretty unappealing…I mean, I don’t think you could eat that skin if you wanted to, right? The skin on a fried turkey is delicious. Yep, it’s a guilty pleasure. It’s warm and crunchy and delightfully flavorful – and that’s just the outside covering!

Inside, the turkey is super moist – unlike many oven-baked big birds. A fried turkey is much like a giant piece of Southern fried chicken, without the breading. You can rub the bird down with seasoning or inject it with marinade for a true Cajun feast.

As delicious as it is, frying a turkey does have its drawbacks. For one thing, the oil used for frying is costly. For another thing, it has to be done outside. This is a problem when the weather is cold or rainy. Also, you have to make sure your propane tank has enough fuel in it to get the job done.

Now there’s a perfect solution – an indoor turkey fryer! Whoever invented this gadget deserves a prize. Dang! Why didn’t I think of it?

The folks at Masterbuilt and Butterball put their heads together to come up with this gem: the Masterbuilt Butterball Professional Series Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer. It sits right on your kitchen countertop, so you don’t have to cook outdoors. Amazingly, it doesn’t take up a lot of space either – just a little over 16 x 16 x 14 inches. It uses electricity, so you don’t have to worry about propane. Also, the electric turkey fryer uses one-third less oil than the outdoor cookers, so you save money. What’s not to love?

The indoor turkey fryer comes with a handy cooking basket, so smaller items can be fried, too. Think fried chicken, hot wings, French fries, mushrooms, onion rings, donuts, squash, pepper poppers, cheese sticks, shrimp, oysters, fish, hushpuppies – the possibilities are practically endless! Add to that this fryer’s ability to handle whole chickens and turkeys up to fourteen pounds! Imagine being able to fry a whole chicken in just fifteen minutes . Wow – talk about a quick meal!

This cooker totally takes the guesswork out of frying. A green light tells you when the oil is at the correct frying temperature, and the timer tells you when your food is ready. The thermostat allows you to easily choose the cooking temperature – up to 375 degrees. There’s also a viewing window, so you can check your food, and don’t worry about smelling up your house. A built-in filter greatly reduces the cooking odors.

When it comes time for cleanup, just open the tap drain to remove old oil. This thing is sturdy, too. It’s housed in tough stainless steel and comes with a ninety-day warranty.

Can you tell I’m excited about this product? I hope so. A friend has one, and she absolutely loves it! The list price for this product is $179.95, but Amazon has an electric turkey fryer on sale now for $149.69. Choose an indoor turkey fryer from the selection below. I’m ordering my electric turkey fryer on payday!
