    Summary: First of all, I am a true cajun, born and raised in South Louisiana. I first bought a Propane Turkey fryer a few years ago, and not only is it a pain in the.... to use and setup, but it is also very dangerous. Well a few months ago, I saw this fryer ... read more

  • Makes a wonderful water bath canner

    Oct 10, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quick to set up, stable, bypasses the shortcomings of electric smoothops.
    Cons: Rubber feet stick to countertops & come out. Don't lose them!

    Summary: When I renovated my kitchen, I replace the old coil cooktop with an electric ceramic smoothtop. Unfortunately, oversized pots or pots with rippled bottoms can damage the smoothtop, so my regular water bath canner could not be used. I bought the ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Can deep-fry up to a 14-lb. whole turkey. Also steams & boils!
    Cons: Small drain valve cap can be misplaced. Peanut oil is very expensive! Space demanding.

    Summary: WHY MASTERBUILT? I already knew that there were gas-powered turkey fryers out there. My very first exposure to this craze or fad, if you will, was when I went to Columbia, SC to visit my brother & his wife for the first time in '02. It was Memorial ... read more

    Summary: We got this for Thanksgiving this year and used it to fry one of the best turkeys we've ever had. It's even rated highly by Consumer Reports, which no one can say about gas turkey fryers. And it is even certified by UL, as the others aren't. This ... read more

    Pros: Potential to be a great unit, especially draining it. Electric safer than propane .
    Cons: Second unit also defective. How long will a working one last?
