Answer: 
Absolutely! You can fry an entire chicken, chicken wings, and pieces. Just ensure you season it well, and pat dry (real well) prior to adding to the oil.

I probably would not do this. If you go to the MasterBuilt website, they have a larger unit, the XXL that may do the job for you.

No. The maximum size is stated on this website, on the box & in the infomercial.
20 pounds is the limit.
You *might* squeeze a 21#er in there...& it *might* even cook; this time. But who knows what'll happen next time?

Happy Family is correct but oil selection is key to good vs. great turkey. So long as no one is allegic to it I strongly recommend 100% peanut oil for best flavor and being able to easily handle the high heat of proper frying. You can use this in the kitchen but I wouldn't if at all possible due to all the people that usually move around the kitchen this time of year and the potential for a hot oil burn by accident to someone. I use my porch to be on the safe side. If you do need a longer cord make sure it is rated heavier than the cord on the unit and keep it as short as possible for safety. I have gotten up to 5 turkeys/chickens from one box of peanut oil. If you want to extend the life of the oil make sure to strain it when you return the completely cooled oil to the container, with either a screen in a funnel or coffee filter, to catch all the solids that remain in the oil. IMPORTANT: do not fry fish and expect to reuse that oil unless you want everything you cook afterwards to not smell like fish.
The oil is completely bio-degradable and sometimes your local market will take it. Check with your trash hauler for their direction as well.

The oil is good for more than just frying one turkey. After you use it, let the oil cool. Drain & strain it through paper towels/coffee filter back into the original container. You can make fried chicken in this, hot wings, French fries, onion rings. As a matter of fact, making French fries will add to the life of the oil.
Once it is all done in (darkened color/noticeable smell), drain back into that original container & find a used cooking oil recycle center. Inquire with your local refuse hauler, they have all that kind of info.

Thank you for your interest in the Butterball XL Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer. This unit takes 20-30 minutes to heat the oil and should produce steam. This unit will only produce smoke if the oil is burning. This fryer comes equipped with a drain valve and spout to drain used oil back into the oil container.

Empty it is not heavy at all ( less than 12 pounds is my estimate). The drain spout makes emptying the oil a snap so you don't have to move it when full of 3 gallons of oil.

XL Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 201.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from After much research into several different styles and models of Turkey Fryer, we settled on the B... After much research into several different styles and models of Turkey Fryer, we settled on the Butterball unit by Masterbuilt. We went with an indoor unit as we figured we’d get much more utility out of it during the rough Midwestern winters than propane-powered fryers. Also this brand has a vaunted reputation from consumers online, real average folks who will put appliances through real-world conditions, not some manufacturer-sponsored lab environment. The fryer was already pretty well set up and with a quick wash of all the major parts and a gander through the instruction manual to ensure safety, I filled it with oil and fired it up. I’ve never used anything larger than a fry daddy or large pot so this thing seemed gargantuan by comparison. Nonetheless, thanks to the numerous Youtube videos watched, I had a good idea about a few things. For my maiden fryer voyage I did a 7 pound whole chicken. For seasoning I simply used the same as I always do except I made a rub and put it all over the chicken. Also, I injected the breasts and thighs for flavor. Using 2 gallons of oil for my 7 pound bird it took the fyer about 40 minutes to heat up. I cooked the chicken for 40 minutes using the 5 minutes/pound + 5 minutes formula, in vegetable oil. The internal temp was a scorching 185 degrees upon lifting the bird out. The chicken was absolutely beautiful and tasted as good as it looked. The entire skin of the chicken was a crispy golden brown and accented by the seasoning adorned upon the entire outside of the chicken. The legs and wings came right off the chicken by hand and the breast meat was juicy and flavorful through and through. Huge surprise for me was that the chicken was just as juicy the next day when heated up in the….Microwave! That never happens with fried food. We let the unit cool down overnight and then drained the oil out the next day. The tub that cooks the chicken is coated with a non-stick material and it lifts completely out of the unit. This allowed me to close the drain valve and fill the tub with soapy water and clean. The small amount of grease and sediments on the bottom came right out. No ‘elbow grease’ needed to scrub! I was extremely satisfied with this experience. A few thoughts to consider: First, if you plan to do fried turkey for thanksgiving and are planning to get an inside unit, this one is hard to beat. However, consider the size of this unit. It can fry up to an 18-20 pound bird so it will need plenty of counter space. If all of your counters are covered by your cabinets this means you will have to find something like a small table or other surface as you won’t be able to open the lid on this. As well, you will need a place to store it when not in use and again, if you have very limited storage space you might be mindful of this going in. They do make smaller units by the same manufacturer and many people can get by with the smaller one as it can still fry up 10-plus pound birds. One thing I do not like is the timer. It blinks the entire time the food is cooking which seems like a malfunction. Also, the chime is pretty faint so be mindful if your family is noisy like mine, you will not hear that little beep unless you are listening for it. Another annoyance is the cord. It is extremely short which is done to minimize eliminate a tripping hazard. It is held in place by magnet technology so the slightest touch will cause it to break loose(not like Magsafe on your MacBook). All of this is done to ensure you don't tip your machine and severely burn someone or damage your home. However, it requires that you truly clear enough of a space for this to sit unencumbered by any of your other appliances. Money-saving technology employed in this is sufficient that you can use any type of cooking oil, not just the highly expensive peanut oil. Another reason we went with this unit is that it steams and boils as well. My wife, mother and mother-in-law are big fans of steamed crab legs and we all love steam pots with vegetables and potatoes. We have family gatherings at least once every couple of months and we can do fish fries, wing parties and not have to worry with going outside if the weather isn’t permissible. Online reviews drove our purchase and please avail yourself of all the wonderful ‘how-to’ vidoes on youtube; it has given us so MANY ideas! All told, we are pleased with this fryer’s performance, and promises of many delicious meals to come.

I had never had a fried turkey before and was surprised to find it was moist, not greasy, and cooked just right (carefully following instructions). My turkey was right at the upper range of weight (21 lbs) and was completely cooked in 80 minutes. It was easy to use, easy to clean and a pleasure to use. I did cook the turkey in my garage to minimize potential mess (very little - mostly a few ounces of moisture that dripped outside the cooker), and the smell of cooking oil which could have been pretty strong inside. I expect to use this many times in the future. I highly recommend this product

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good It's a good fryer, as far as electric, indoor fryers go. But the thermometer only goes up to 375 and a turkey is typically started at around 400. It's a concern only because once you drop it in, the temp drops and never quite gets back to 375, hence they want you to do 4+ mins per pound. A big bonus is the oil drain spout. You can just put your oil jug on a stool, lay a paper tower over the mouth for filtration and let it drain without having to tip it out. And of course it can conveniently do massive boils which is cool to have around. Overall, the price point is about right for what you're getting and I really like mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!! This product lived up to everything it said it was and then some. We used it indoors without any problems and the turkey was the best I had ever had...hands down. My fiancé is an amazing cook who has fried many turkeys in traditional fryers and he was skeptical when I bought this, but he ended up admitting that the results were awesome. In fact, he kept grabbing leftovers out of the refrigerator saying that the turkey was wonderful, even cold.

Do not expect to use this for things like French fries unless you are cooking for a feast. BUT - the turkey came out crazy good. One of the best I ever had. Also used it for steaming and the lobster tails came out great. Its bigger than you might think, but absolutely perfect at what it does. I COULDN'T BE HAPPIER!

After deep frying turkeys with the propane set-up for many years, my children gave me this model for Christmas last year. Broke it out for the first time to cook two 14 lb. turkeys for part of our Thanksgiving meal yesterday. Did everything by the book. Unit heated up to the 375 temp no problem, but once the first Butterball Premium turkey was put in to the oil, the unit never got back up to temperature. It stayed around 270 degrees and the oil was at a slow rolling boil. The recommended fill line did not bring the oil high enough to cover the entire breast of the turkey. After the 4 minute per pound cooking time had expired, the skin was slimy and the meat was only at 140 degrees. Thankfully, I listened to my wife and brought the propane pot set up we have been using for many years as a back-up plan. I abandoned the electric one and went back to the tried and true set-up for the second bird. Very disappointed with this product. I would love to get my money back, but it has been 10 months since it was purchased.
