Masterbuilt Turkey Fryer,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Masterbuilt 20010109 Butterball Professional Series Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Lawn & Patio)
Successor to company's earlier kettle-style units.
Worked very well first time out of the gate.
Cooked a 13.7lb turkey in the minium time.
Seems well built and thought out.
I prefer an electric fryer to a gas one for reasons of safety and that it can be used inside.
I owned an earlier Masterbuilt that worked well but failed after only a few Thanksgivings.
The main reason I gave this one a 4 instead of 5 star is that, to me, the jury's out on the reliability.
Still, the first one worked well enough to give them a second chance.
Right now, this one's working great.

I had the exact same thing happen for me. After about two Thanksgivings my kettle style Masterbuilt temperature sensor failed and started sending an overheat trip. I was not willing to run the risk of me having to hit the thing with my spatula for yet another thanksgiving to get it to work so I went out and purchased this one. I got it home to find out it too was a Masterbuilt! We will see how it goes this Thanksgiving. Overall, my past two thanksgivings with a fryed turkey has convinced me to never go back to the traditional oven method again. Maybe they have learned something.
