Masterbuilt 20011210 Butterball Professional Series Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer, XL Product Description
No one disputes the delicious flavor of a deep-fried turkey, but stories of house fires and near misses can discourage even the biggest fried turkey fan. Enter the Masterbuilt Butterball indoor turkey fryer, an electric fryer that's so safe it's certified to operate indoors, on your kitchen countertop, any time of year. The Butterball features a one-of-a-kind design that's engineered to keep you safe. Not only do the stainless-steel fryer and porcelain-coated inner pot keep oil safely contained, but it also uses 33 percent less oil than conventional fryers. As a result, you can cook turkeys as large as 14 pounds safely and efficiently, with little threat of oil boiling over the sides.

Powerful and Attractive

The stainless-steel fryer looks great in a modern kitchen, as it complements most kitchen appliances and countertop materials. Chefs might even want to leave it on display when it's not in use. For convenience, the Butterball includes a window for turkey monitoring. Simply fold back the lid for easy access and you can watch your turkey cook to a perfect crisp.
The good looks accompany a powerful 1,650-watt electric heating element that heats up the oil in less than 30 minutes. Using the sturdy turkey basket, you can cook a 14-pound turkey in only four minutes per pound--less than an hour of cooking time. Masterbuilt also added a drain clip to the fry basket. With the drain clip, you can hang the basket on the side of the fryer while the turkey drains and cools. The clip makes it easy to move the turkey to a serving platter without making a huge oily mess.

No Ordinary Turkey Fryer

Operating the Butterball couldn't be easier. Simply set the cooking temperature via the user-friendly control panel, then set the built-in digital timer to track the cooking time. A green ready light will come on when the oil is heated and the fryer is ready for use. After you lower the turkey into the oil, the timer will beep to let you know when it's done. The fryer even includes a couple of extra safety controls, including a thermostat control to keep the temperature steady (up to 375 degrees F) and an automatic shutoff function that activates when the cooking temperature gets too high.
The Butterball isn't just for turkeys. You can prepare an endless variety of foods in the fryer--from hot wings and fried fish to corndogs and fries for the kids. You can also fill the fryer with water to steam or even boil your favorite dish. Other options include inviting the whole family over for a large low-country boil, steaming fresh crab legs for two, or even trying your hand at frying desserts like doughnuts, apple turnovers, and fried ice cream.
Additional turkey fryer highlights include a built-in filter to reduce cooking odors, a drain valve for easy cleaning, a hideaway storage compartment, and a space-saving design that takes up minimal space on the counter. The fryer measures 15.7 by 14.2 by 14.6 inches (W x H x D) and carries a 90-day limited warranty.
The stainless-steel fryer is one of three fryers in the Butterball indoor fryer series. Also available are a black-finished fryer with the same capacity as the stainless model and an extra-large fryer that handles turkeys up to 20 pounds.
Editor’s note: The power cord on this model has a hideaway storage compartment that can be tricky to find.

Product Features

CDN IRL500 InstaRead Deep Fry Turkey Thermometer
  • 12-inch thermometer probe is perfect for deep frying vats
  • Registers temperature ranging from 100 to 500 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Stainless-steel clip adjusts to fit varying kettles
  • Large 2-inch dial is easy to read
  • Oil heated to the proper temperature produces a perfect deep-fried turkey Review

Popular in Southern cooking for decades, deep-fried whole turkey is gaining a national audience. When cooked properly it’s delicious, juicy, and has no greasy taste. Each fry kettle has its own instructions, but generally for best results the oil should first be heated to between 375 and 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and after the bird is added, maintained at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. With its adjustable stainless-steel clip, this 12-inch-long thermometer is ideal for attaching to any size vat or kettle to monitor oil temperature. Large and easy-to-read, the 2-inch dial registers temperatures ranging from 100 to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, and can be left in after cooking is complete to ensure the oil has completely cooled. A 14-pound bird usually cooks in approximately 45 minutes. The protective sheath for the thermometer features a pocket clip and loop to conveniently hold the probe. Since a large amount of hot oil is required, turkeys and other poultry should always be deep-fried outdoors. A five-year warranty covers the thermometer against defects.--Ann Bieri

Masterbuilt 20100809 Butterball Oil-Free Electric Turkey Fryer and Roaster Product Description

Love deep-fried turkey, but aren't crazy about surrounding your fowl with unhealthy oil? Turn to the Masterbuilt Butterball oil-free electric turkey fryer, a high-performing alternative to traditional fryers developed with the health-conscious in mind. The oil-free fryer is designed to give you perfectly moist meat with a tender crisp. It tastes like fried turkey and looks like fried turkey, but it uses no oil whatsoever.

Fryer package
The oil-free fryer includes a fryer basket, turkey stand, glass lid, lifting hook, chip box, and more. (View larger).
18 pounds

Radiant Heat Design

The fryer's double-wall construction uses radiant heat to seal the outside of the turkey, producing a turkey that's crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. Thanks to the powerful 1,650-watt electric element, the fryer can cook turkeys as large as 18 pounds in as little as 10 minutes of cooking time per pound, or about three hours. It's also easy to monitor your turkey thanks to the tempered glass lid, which is large enough to look right in while you wait. You can also use the lid hook to hang the lid on the outer edge of the fryer for added convenience.

The Butterball fryer is loaded with convenient features, including a foolproof adjustable temperature control dial with a thermostat that provides even, consistent cooking. The dial prevents the fryer from overheating and yields delicious results every time. The fryer basket is also handy, as it not only holds 18-pound turkeys, but also pork roasts, whole chickens, and even corn on the cob. The basket is accompanied by a sturdy lifting hook for easy basket removal. And to ensure consistent cooking, the fryer comes with a turkey stand that goes inside the roasting basket. The turkey stand centers the meat and opens the large cavity, so flavor and moisture are distributed evenly and penetrate throughout the entire turkey.

Pile on the Flavor

Not content with the moist flavors of a fried turkey? Pile on the flavor using the fryer's built-in wood chip box. With your favorite wood chips, you can infuse a great smokehouse flavor your family will love. And chefs will love the removable drip pan at the bottom of the unit, which catches all the drippings while your turkey or pot roast cooks. You can then use the drippings to make a delicious broth, gravy, or sauce. Plus, the drip pan makes cleanup easier than ever.
The Butterball oil-free turkey fryer measures 18 by 23.2 by 26.2 inches (W x H x D) and carries a 90-day limited warranty.
