Update 11/27/2011: I have used my fryer for the second consecutive year and I am still quite pleased. I cooked a 9 lb turkey breast in about 55 minutes.

I almost didn't buy this unit because of the one star reviewer, but I knew I could return it if needed. To my delight the fryer worked perfectly - of course if you read the directions for operating the controls, that always helps.

Pros:
1. BIG!! Fries up toa 16 lb Turkey in the 30 quart barrel and uses almost 4 gal of oil (oil is reuseable up to 5-6 times). Think of it as an investment.
2. The black casing around it is cast iron. I thought it was plastic in the picture.
3. Drain spout to save the oil when finish.
4. Nice glass lid; Nice appearance

Cons:
1. Takes about 55 minutes to heat the oil from room temp to 400 degrees. This is normal for such a large unit.
2. Prices vary. I got mine from WalMart online so check around
3. The control panel isn't intuitive, so read the instructions. Press "on"; then "Temp Heat"; then press the up arrow until it reaches 400 degrees (for frying a turkey). You may have to push a button more than once because I think the first push is to light up the screen.

I bought this fryer to use as an electric brew kettle and it works great. It boiled 6 1/2 gallons of water without any problem. I did put foil/foam insulation around the outer housing to it help retain heat and kept the lid on until it started to boil. The only problem with it is the thermostat is about 25 degrees high and you can hardly see the temperature readout while it's in use. But neither problem is that big of a deal just set the temp high and if it's boiling it's at 212 degrees. If you are brewing on an electric glasstop range like I was it's worth the investment! My range would never get 4 gallons boiling let alone 6 1/2. I removed the little swing out drain spigot (which has metric threads ugh) and attached a 5/8" ID hose and clamp directly to the valve and it worked great. So as a turkey fryer I will never know how good it is but as a wort boiler IT ROCKS!!!

I have a 6 year old turkey fryer that I was using to cook turkeys at work with. This year we were frying more turkeys than ever so we bought a second fryer to get them done in half the time.

Problem 1: I read several reviews that the tabs holding the element to the base were broken upon opening the box. I chalked this up to bad luck, but I should have been smarter, as these tabs were broken on OUR unit as well. With hungry employees and no time to return it, I was forced to tape the button down to get it to turn on (that should happen automatically when it's slotted in correctly.)

Problem 2: LCD readout was very hard to read in the daylight.

Problem 3:... and this is the biggie... the oil just could NEVER get back up to 350 degrees after putting a turkey in. The element was on the whole time struggling to keep the oil at 270 degrees according to the LCD (that I could barely make out). The end result was that the turkeys cooked in my old fryer were a deep brown color, whereas these turkeys looked undercooked (a meat thermometer did show they were 185 degrees, took about 10 minutes longer than usual to get there though.)

If I didn't have another fryer cooking simultaneously with this one problem 3 might never have become apparent, and if not for the broken tabs I might have given this a favorable review, as it stands, I recommend looking elsewhere for your turkey fryer.

I have had this for a while and decided to pull it out for Thanksgiving this year. I normally use a propane cooker, but tried this instead and I will use it from now on. It is very easy to use - no more thermometer to check oil temp - drains easily. It only took 35 minutes to get the oil to 350 degrees and 45 minutes to cook a 14 pound turkey. Highly recommended...

I have used propane fryers for years to deep fry our Thanksgiving turkey and have used this one for the last 3 years and absolutely love it. Clean up is a easy, my turkey,s (I usually fry at least 4) turn out golden brown and cook in 45-50 minutes. I get rave reviews from family and friends and will continue to use this type of fryer. You can have your messy, dangerous propane fryers. There's nothing like this one!

I've seen the videos about how frying a turkey can get out of control so I was scared. I followed the directions and the turkey was a the big hit this Thanksgiving. Nice glass lid, made well. Loved the drain. I can't wait to do my first Cajun Boil.

After using the 2nd time, the plastic slot for the warmer shattered. A 30 minute phone call with Bruce Foods got me a replacement part at $37, over 1/3 of the cost. Spend a little more and get a better product.

Best indoor Beer maker. Cheaper than propane and can use Inside. I use to make beer on a propane fryer but I had to do it outside in the summer the flies smelled the wort and were all around me not a good sanitary condition. I would always have to worry about running out of gas. I use BIAB and set temp at 150 and it holds mash perfect. The basket helps in grain removal, I make 2.5 gal to 5 gal all grain batches and 7 gal extract. I also used it to make chicken wings, french fries, turkey, fish etc.

I've had this deep fryer for about four years and can say that I've successfully deep fried no less than 15 turkeys during this span. I will say that even though it advertises 14-16 lbs max any turkey 13lbs and above won't completely submerge. You'll have the top of the turkey not covered by the grease even though it cooks from within. I sometimes have to flip the turkey completely over or on its side to get that top part done completely. I've NEVER had any problems with the fryer not reaching or maintaining temperature. I didn't have any issues with broken part upon arrival or over the last four years. I've deep fried everything imaginable and have boiled more pounds of crawfish than I could guess at. The only reason I won't give it a 5 star is because the temperature gauge is hard to see unless the lighting in the room is low and over the years steam has begun to develop inside the gauge during use. But overall this fryer is great if you actually read and follow the instructions, especially with the initial use. Fill with oil up to the clearly marked line, set temperature for 400 for 55 minutes. After 55 minutes, slowly lower turkey into the oil, drop temperature to 350 degrees, set the timer,..3 minutes times the weight of the turkey then add 30 minutes,..then walk away. The timer will chirp an alarm after the selected cooking time has expired but will not automatically shut off the fryer.
