Turkey Fryers: The 5 Best Makes & Models to Buy

For those of you planning to attempt your first fried turkey this year, here is a great list of the five best turkey fryer models available. When purchasing a turkey fryer, consider a few important things: Are you planning to fry your turkey indoors or outdoors? Outdoor fryers usually fire on propane, while indoor fryers are typically electric and may even be oil-less. How many people are you serving? Be sure to buy a fryer that will easily fit the size bird you intend to serve. (With these models you can fry up to a 25-pound bird!) Finally, consider clean-up. Indoor fryers are generally easier to clean-up, but they are geared toward cooking smaller birds. I hope you enjoy your fried turkey this year — good luck!
