When you read about Thanksgiving and accidents with turkey fryers you find some horrifying stories about fires and people losing their home because of that.
Since I had the experience last year to see how an oil-less turkey fryer cooked one of the best Thanksgiving turkeys I ever had I wanted to tell you how it was cooked.
It was cooked in an Infrared turkey fryer from Char-Broil. This is a company that is well known for his quality grills.
The whole name is the Char Broil Tru infrared the big oil-less turkey fryer. A mouth full but it describes exactly what it is. There is no oil in the fryer and that makes it very safe and a non fire hazard compared to oil fryers.
Let have a look at this grill surface
This infra red fryer 1s 24.5 inches high and the diameter is 22.1 inches.
This is large enough for a turkey and even for 2 chicken at the same time.
What is this grill made of
It is built form stainless steel and this will make it last a long time if you maintain it.
Customer reviews of the safe thanksgiving turkey fryer
We have found 90% of the reviewers gave it a 4 and 5 star rating and this is a pretty high score.
Here are some of the most mentioned opinions we found.
The fact that there is no oil was mentioned as one of the biggest advantages and that the turkey tasted so much better and was very moist.
Assembling takes only about 30 minutes so make sure to do that before using it.
Cleaning up after cooking is very easy and only one person mentioned that he would have liked the oil catch to be disposable but I think you can figure out how to do that.
Some remarks were made about the health benefits compared to an oil fryer and I think that is a very good point since oil that will get in the meat is not healthy and this infrared grill does not use any more oil than you put on the outside of the turkey.
It is important to know that you can also use it for any other kind of meat like chicken, Boston but and I have even seen someone cook ribs in it.
The quality was mentioned a few times a little cheap, but with the right maintenance it will last a long time.
Many seasoned users mentioned that is is a good idea to oil the fryer after every use.
