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 stainless-steel fryer 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.
The stainless-steel 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.
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 stainless-steel fryer is one of three fryers in the Butterball indoor fryer series. Also available are a black-finished fryer with the same capacity as the stainless 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. Additionally, the control panel is correctly attached when the heating element is positioned inside the inner pot and fully immersed in cooking oil or water during use.

People absolutely love their pets! For many families, pets are just as much a part of the dynamic as the humans. Pets are catered to on all different levels, and why shouldn't they be? They bring an amazing amount of joy to the whole family. Just like their human counterparts, pets also have needs which need to be met in order to maintain the health, livelihood, and the best possible relationship with our pets. There are countless pet supply stores which cater to the needs of the furry family members, and walking through the doors of some of the giant megastores can sometimes be too much to take in at once. It makes you wonder if you are somehow neglecting to meet your pet's needs, and can completely take you by surprise. From sweaters to treats to designer carriers, here are some tips on buying the right supplies for your pets.
1. Food. Of course, food is one of the essentials for pet ownership. Your pet's dietary needs absolutely must be met. With that being said, there are quite literally hundreds of different kinds of food for your pet, and selecting the right brand can be mind-boggling at best. Speak with your pet's veterinarian to determine the best way for your pet to get the nutrition he or she needs to be healthy and happy. And believe it or not, price does matter when it comes to pet food. Inexpensive brands of pet food will often be laden with fillers and byproducts which will help to satisfy your pet's hunger, but won't do much to meet all of your pet's dietary needs. Read the labels carefully, and select those that only have the best, highest quality ingredients with meat being the first item on the label.
2. Treats. Many pet owners view pet treats as being a luxury. They are, however, often a vital training tool and also beneficial for the pet's health as well. Many pet treats are designed to help remove buildup from the gums and teeth, which is essentially a pet toothbrush. These types of chew-type treats will not only help to remove buildup from the teeth and gums, but can also be a valuable deterrent in protecting some of your favorite valuables such as kids' toys, shoes, or other items from being shredded, chewed on, or laid on.
3. Quality should supersede price. Not all toys and products are created equally. Some are definitely built better than others, and it is better to purchase a more expensive but better quality item than a cheaper one to replace when it is destroyed. Some toys and products can't take the wear and tear your pets will put on them, and you could find your pet swallowing bits of toys. This can not only lead to choking hazards (for pets and small children), but can also lead to more serious intestinal blockages which require surgery to be repaired.
4. Leashes, harnesses, collars and other accessories should be suitable for your pet. Make sure you are purchasing the right size and type for your pet. Larger breeds of dogs require more durable leashes and collars to provide the proper restraint without harming your pet or risking it malfunctioning while in use. Make sure you are properly measuring your pet to insure a well-fitting collar or harness. This will not only be more comfortable for your pet, but it will aid in training as well.
When it comes to purchasing pet supplies, there are a lot of variables to consider. The type, size, and breed of pet will make all the difference in the world. If in doubt, contact your pet's veterinarian or other pet professional to insure you are buying what you need to keep your pet happy and healthy.
