Product Description

Size: Large | Color: Black

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 black outer shell 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.

Butterball black
The black-finished Butterball looks great in most kitchens. (View larger).

Powerful and Attractive

The black-finished 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 black-finished fryer is one of three fryers in the Butterball indoor fryer series. Also available are a stainless-steel fryer with the same capacity as the black 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.

I bought this fryer for my thanksgiving turkey, and have used it once successfully. I fried a 13 pound bird with 2 gallons of oil for 4 minutes a pound, and got a delicious, moist, and decidedly not greasy turkey. Set up took around 10 minutes, mainly to familiarize myself with the few parts, and clean up was fairly easy as the spigot on the bottom of the fryer made draining the oil pretty simple, and everything pretty much wiped clean.

Living in an urban area, where flaming mishaps are a really bad idea, I appreciate the safety of this fryer over an open vat of oil over an open flame. And plugging in is much easier than hauling propane tanks around. The outside of the fryer remained cool to touch at all times. It is obvious that a good amount of thought went into making it safe to use in an indoor environment.

Some limitations:

The fryer only holds two gallons of oil. Actually, the "max fill" line is at around 1.6 or 1.7 gallons. I added the full two gallons with no problems (with a 13 pound turkey). The less oil, and the larger the turkey, the more the oil will be cooled down when the turkey is added. This is less a problem with a propane fire - which can crank out the BTUs - than it is with an electric heating element, which produces a more modest amount of heat. So a major limitation of this fryer is that once you add the turkey, the oil will not again achieve the desired 375 degree temperature. To minimize this, I would recommend using a modest size turkey, and I also recommend allowing the turkey to come as close to room temperature as safety allows before adding it into the oil.

The fryer is labeled for indoor use only, presumably due to limited weatherproofing of electric parts.

I started using this Indoor Fryer 2 days ago. Best catfish ever! I also fried turkey wings and a whole chicken the same day. I had no trouble at all with a 4 lb chicken and bought some small turkeys to fry later. Imagine frying a whole chicken in 17 minutes! No need to imagine it, you can do it!

Easy to use even for a beginner. Cleanup is a breeze! The oil drains perfectly clean if you want to use it again. I was able to drain it all back into the bottles without using a strainer.

The Masterbuilt company has answered every question in a very timely fashion. I would recommend this Indoor Fryer to anyone looking to have fun frying foods.

I have been deep frying turkeys for the past 10 years using a Barbour deep fryer. Every Thanksgiving (or a few weeks before), I would have to go behind supermarkets to grab cardboard boxes to line the area of the fryer as oil would inevitably spill. Some years were better than others, but my wife was none too happy about the mess.

I was given this deep fryer as a gift two weeks ago and have just deep fried 2 turkeys that have come out just as good as the outdoor fryer but without the mess. I've used the same peanut oil twice and plan on keeping it in there through Thanksgiving. The unit was purchased from Amazon and was well packaged.

In getting the unit ready for use, make sure to remove all of the paper first (the inside is lined with cardboard...you'll need to pull the right side (this is the side where the heating mechanism comes out from) of the unit upwards) to get rid of the cardboard. Be careful when doing this as the coil could be easily broken if done too fast.

Also, you'll need to remove plastic that covers the drain, etc. You won't use more than 2.75 gallons of peanut oil (the outdoor fryer used about 4 gallons). The fryer comes with a basket which can easily hold a 20lb turkey. I suggest placing the unit in a garage (with ventilation) on an elevated surface- placing inside the home may give you a turkey odor for a few days.

The oil takes about 45 minutes to heat up. Once the unit is ready, the green light will go on. Place the turkey into the fryer and set the digital timer (about 3 1/2 to 4 minutes per pound). There are cavities in the unit so that if oil spills out, you'll be able to remove the oil (I used a dry paper towel to do this). Only do this during cooking if your unit is excessively sweating (drips coming out of the unit).

I purchased this to try something different, and I'm not disappointed. It arrived promptly, was easy to set up, and reasonably easy to use. It heated up in less than half an hour, and produced a moist, evenly-cooked 10-lb turkey in 40 minutes. The directions also say that you can fill it with water instead of oil and use it as a large steamer, which I will find very useful.

All that said,there are a few things that you should know if you're considering buying this.

It is a very large appliance, as it must be to hold a whole turkey plus sufficient oil to fry it in. But the size has three important implications:

1) If you have wall cabinets over your kitchen counters, this item will not fit - you won't have sufficient clearance to open the lid. You'll need to plan ahead and have an alternate place to set it.

2) The unit is tall enough that even if you have a counter with adequate clearance, you will need to lift the turkey more than shoulder height to lower it into the hot oil. I am 5'8", neither tall nor short, and raising a heavy turkey to this height did not seem like a safe maneuver to be making in the vicinity of hot oil.

These aren't design flaws - they're just the consequence of the unit being large enough to fry a turkey - but they are things to take into account as you figure out where you will set this up. And on that note -

3) When fully loaded, the unit is heavy (oil + turkey + fryer = almost fifty pounds), so whatever you set it on absolutely MUST be sturdy and tip-proof.
