Perfect frying appliance,
This review is from: Masterbuilt 20011210 Butterball Professional Series Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer, X-Large [OLD VERSION] (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Lawn & Patio)
I have been deep frying turkeys for 13 years and own both a propane and the Materbuilt. I love this unit and no longer use the propane unit. I have had zero problems and have built a sliding shelf in my garage to do the cooking. Very easy to use and trouble free. Sorry if some people have had issues with the heating element, I set and "forget" which means this unit allows me to continue with other cooking details without the threat of a fire or boiling over. I cook for a big crowd so I am close to the cooker, no fires and this unit is way safer than propane, as I could never walk away from an open flame. Also the thermostat works very well and I have the highest confidence in using this product. WARNING: I am not advocating irresponsibility in not attending to the frying of any foods, if you are inexperienced in deep frying seek counsel from online sites that provide proper frying techniques(e.g. youtube). This Masterbuilt is safe and under the proper frying conditions, you should not have any regrets.
One point I would like to mention is the magnetic connection for the electric cord, hmmm not real crazy about that idea as I have had the connection come off, not a problem as I think the company is exercising a safety feature to keep the unit from operating if it were to be bumped or tipped over. Just my thoughts on what can be annoying.

Magnetic connection for the cord is a safety feature to prevent someone (kids) who may tug on the cord from pulling the appliance off a counter or table and splashing hot oil. This is an excellent feature and works well.
