You can't beat the quality or the price of this outfit. The cooker is easy to assemble and the pan, basket, and accessories are all of good quality. If you are looking for a good frier for seafood boils this pan will comfortably feed up to 10 people per batch! Only one complaint, the paint burns off around the flame. No big deal, just wish the manufacturer would have paid attention to that little detail.

Can't beat the price quality or durability of this deal!

Used this for brewing a 5gal batch of homebrew and was impressed with the ability to control the burner from a low flame to a jet. We had no problem bringing the wort to a boil and then simmer during the process. The timer, (15 minutes and then the gas cuts) is slightly annoying but doesn't particularly cause issues if you're attending to the batch. I'm pretty sure the safety could be circumvented by simply wrapping a rubber band around the red timer button.

Only downside in this kit is the aluminum pot. Mine was in MINT condition, but still came out with some dents after a single boil from our stainless wort stirrer. Aluminum pot also requires pre-boiling a full 6 gallons to for a nice dark oxide layer. Tough to sanitize because the aluminum is reactive to both the cheaper one-step (oxy based cleaner) and the Star San (acid based cleaner). I wouldn't recommend this pot for serious brewing.

This outfit heats up quickly, holds 350 degree boiling heat after switching off every 15 minutes. Each large basket will allow 10-15 pieces to cook. Now with three cookers we can serve more people hot fish which is much more enjoyable than luke warm or air temperature fish. We fryed (3) turkeys as a trial test to determine if the cookers were keepers or not. THEY ARE KEEPERS !!!!! I love how fast, even, and safe they cook for our purpose and just using it once will convience the user that this was an execellent choice.

If you are looking for large fryer/steamer you wont find one better. I bought this cooker to fry a turkey in and it worked great. Since getting the 1266B I have made a lot of very unhealthy but delicious food. Going to use this to cook some lobsters soon and will update my review as to how well it works as a steamer, I do have one small gripe and that is there was a dent on the cooking pot. Its not a big deal as it still worked great but one of those little annoyances. Unit was dented at factory as the box was in perfect condition when I received it. Would recommend this to anyone that has a hankering to fry some things..the possibilities are endless.

Worked great for Thanksgiving 2013, but when we brought it out again for 2014 there was a pinhole in the base of the pot. We think the included thermometer may have pierced through the metal. Giving it three stars because on the one hand we probably jammed the probe into the bottom of the pot, but on the other a metal vessel meant to contain boiling oil ought to be stronger.

Worked like a dream. The timer is a non issue if you just reset it whenever. Perfect fry of the bird. This is going to be getting ALOT of use moving forward. 21lb turkey in 65 minutes. SOLD

This worked GREAT! Only thing that could have made it better was if it had been a bit bigger. =) (And when I bought it, it was one of the larger ones I found.) But it was easy to use- we used a brine for the turkey, then dried it REALLY well, and had no issues with it gushing oil up and over like others had warned. We cooked two huge turkeys for a family reunion, and there wasn't a single scrap of turkey leftover to snack on. They raved- and they're a tough crowd to please. I considered this a great investment for our reunion.

I purchased this for brewing and it worked for a short time. All the parts are fairly flimsy, short rubber hose, thin steel supports, hardly any wind guard. The electronic "safety valve" failed on me half way through my 4th brew. After rushing to home Depot I found out you can't even replace the valve locally, it needs to be ordered. You can buy a much better product for the same or just slightly more money.

Pretty easy to use. I know in todays world, everything is overboard safety.
It has a battery operated safety flow switch to control gas flow. I would trade it
in a New York minute for a thermocouple. Other works good
