Giveaway: Butterball Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer

I can already hear you all, "Lindsay! A turkey fryer?!?!? This is not cookin' lean!"  You are right, but please, hear me out. This Butterball Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer is more than just a fryer, my friends. This thing boils and steams; the perfect appliance for cookin' up tons of healthy recipes. But also, let me remind you what I think about treating ourselves to something greasy and indulgent every now and then. If we couldn't splurge we would all go insane. Remember? If you are thinking about a frying splurge, this fryer is the best of the best! Get those Oreo cookies ready!


Because I love my readers so much, I have accepted the generous offer from Masterbuilt to review their Butterball Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer AND give one away to one of you! Not only will you get this high-end, good lookin', oil savin', fryin' -machine...but you will also get a $15 off coupon  for a Butterball turkey (perfect with the holidays just around the corner) AND a copy of Dadgum That’s Good!, a cookbook from John McLemore, the CEO of Masterbuilt. How does that sound? I know! I was really excited too! And so was my hubby, Rudy, who has been begging to fry a turkey for the past 3 Thanksgivings. It's his lucky year!


The Butterball Turkey Fryer from Masterbuilt has the following features:



· The fryer is retailed at $159.96


· Adjustable thermostat temperature control


· Stainless steel construction


· Porcelain-coated inner pot


· Digital timer


· Folding lid with window and filter


· Cooking basket with drain clip


· Drain Valve for easy cleaning


· Saves on oil - uses 1/3 less than conventional turkey fryers


· It can feed up to 8 people when frying a 14 lb turkey

To see a video of John McLemore using this fryer, click here.

We tried out our fryer twice this past weekend; once with a 12 lb. turkey and once with a 4 lb. chicken. Both times, it was wonderful! I was amazed at how quickly and evenly it was able to cook both the turkey and the chicken. It is so simple to use and SAFE! With a toddler running around, I know the fears you parents may have. If the cord gets pulled, it instantly releases from the fryer, preventing the hot oil from being pulled onto the floor or anyone around. That is a huge relief, right? After seeing how well it works, how easy it is to use and how it can be used in so many ways, I honestly don't know a cook who wouldn't want one of these in their kitchen!

Whether this would be perfect for you or someone you know this holiday season, I personally would not miss the chance to win it.

TO ENTER: 

1- Leave a comment letting me know how the turkey fryer would help you out this holiday season.

2- Want your entry to count twice? Follow Masterbuilt on Facebook and Twitter !

Overall, I was extremely impressed with this product and I know who ever wins this will be impressed as well.

GOOD LUCK!

ONE winner will be selected and announced on Wednesday, November 17, 2010. The winner will be generated using www.random.org.


** Masterbuilt provided me with the following items to complete this review: one Butterball Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer, one $15 off coupon for a Butterball turkey and one copy of Dadgum That’s Good!, a cookbook from John McLemore, the CEO of Masterbuilt; as well one giveaway package (including all items listed above) for one lucky reader. The opinions included in this review are my own and I was not paid to make them. I really do LOVE this fryer.

  12. Winning the turkey fryer would relieve me of alot of anxiety this holiday season. I know there is a safe and proper way to deep fry a turkey, but having to supervise a cauldron full of hot oil always takes the happy out of my holidays. This fryer looks so safe and anxiety- free. I need one desperately.

  25. Deep fried turkey is the best for holidays, I always had to do outdoor fryer but it's freezing cold. It'd be wonderful to have a indoor fryer.

  30. Because my father can not stand the smell of turkey roasting,I usually go spend the day with friends, but, if I had an electric turkey fryer, I could bring that over to my parents house and plug it in outside and have my turkey with no smell!

  35. first of all Happy Thanksgiving!
    Being thankful is something we should all strive for don't you think? So I have to say that being a cardiac RN is a blessing and a curse because we are never home for the holidays it seems. We are a 24 hour, seven day a week, business and our families must be saints to put up with our crazy schedules. Having this Turkey Fryer join our family would enable me to spend less time in the kitchen and more time with my family! We always try to make others feel special and loved and cared for especially at the holidays, but what a gift I could give to my family by actually being in the same room as they are in when we celebrate our Thanksgiving this year. Hopefull I would be able to quickly deep fry the turkey before my beeper goes off and we could actually sit down to eat at the same table! I know how much that would mean to my family and to me! So thankful yes we would certainly be if we won this most wonderful and much needed gift! Thanks for thinking of us!

  42. Since I don't have room in my kitchen for a double oven, I can never get Thanksgiving dinner all ready at the same time. With all the free oven space, all my food would be piping hot and ready to serve all at once.

  46. My husband has been wanting a turkey fryer for years. I've always been too afraid of fires and trips to the ER when he burns himself with the hot oil. This would take the fear out of frying a turkey. Since my husband and I both work on Thanksgiving, this fryer would make our lives a lot easier when it comes to preparing our Thanksgiving dinner.

  60. I haven't tried frying a turkey yet, so this would make such a convenient way to do it, no having to keep an eye on the fire and making sure the temperature stays just right. That alone gives you the time do do more visiting

    ReplyDelete
  61. The turkey fryer would help save us time on cooking. I bet you could use it for frying whole chickens and small hams too. I have had fried turkey one time. It was really good.

  82. Thanksgiving is a big event in my family. My little family is growing by leaps and bounds - My husband and I have a 3 1/2 year old son, twin 7 month old boys and just found out that we are expecting again. Needless to say, we will be starting our own Thanksgiving traditions. The Butterball Turkey fryer would be the perfect way to make the holiday special. I know that we would enjoy many other events with the fryer as well.

    ReplyDelete
  83. My husband has been begging for a fried turkey since I met him 10 years ago. This would simplify things this year because I could finally make his wish come true! Plus, it would free up space in the oven for all those other things that we make for a holiday dinner; what a great idea this fryer is!

  84. I've never made a turkey before, so this would be lots of fun!

  85. Would love this cooker. We have an outdoor oil cooker and it was really messy when we made fried turkey this past Sunday for our Sunday dinner friends. We have a group of 12-16 people that gather every Sunday for dinner. So this would be a really great cooker to use when it is our turn again to make the dinner for everyone and will get a lot of use!

    ReplyDelete
  86. This would be perfect for my mom. She is a BIG cook, and being able to have something like this that could not only be used for Thanksgiving but year round would be a blessing!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I was super excited, because my family loves fried foods, but the regular deep fryer isn't easy to work with and leaves the kitchen counter a complete mess. turkey fryer
