Customer Questions & Answers

Hello I purchased this and it will not stay lit the instructions state that you must hold in the button when first lit

30 seconds then let go. Once I let go of the button the fire hoes out. Can you help?
Asked by: george
You have to turn the black knob ("egg timer") first before holding in the button and then lighting. That black knob is another safety feature to force you to visit the pot at least once every 15 minutes (not that you're supposed to be leaving it unattended in the first place...) or else it will go out. If you don't turn that before lighting, it will immediately go out.

So it sounds like the safety timer is a big pain? If you get back to it before the 15-minute mark...

So it sounds like the safety timer is a big pain? If you get back to it before the 15-minute mark can you just advance the timer again and save the hassle of relighting?

38,000 BTU Propane Gas Outdoor Turkey Fryer with 29 qt. Pot and Battery Operated Timer is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Changed shape on the first day of use So we wanted to a do a deep-fried tail gate party. We had everything, mozzarella sticks, jalepeno poppers, egg rolls, deep fried snickers, uncrustables, you name it. First of all, when it came and we opened it, dented with a whole, we found that out the hard way when the oil started coming out and going near the flame. We luckily caught it in time before it was a fire hazard. We emptied out some of the oil so it was below the hole, because hey...we needed to eat. Anyways, its a pain because it auto turns off after 15 minutes, so you have to constantly relight. Its evidently not supposed to get over a certain heat which is why they have this safety feature on here.So then what is the point was my question? Anyways, we jimmy-rigged it so it would stay on longer because we had a lot to cook, it literally changed from a circular pot to an oval pot in one day. The plus side, the food came out great, it was just way too much of a hassle to make it happen. Home Depot customer service took it back when i brought it in, no questions and fully refunded my money and the cost of shipping. I was very impressed and satisfied by this. Spend a little extra and get something nicer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Brinkman is better Safer and lower price The Brinkman fryer kit is much better safer and priced a few dollars less....and available through Home Depot! the brinkman has may features this one just dos'nt have....Temp Control/tip-over shutoff...and the 3 U-shaped legs are much more stable on uneven ground/grass/dirt which is where you should be using this anyways!!! well you want level as possible but not on your driveway garage/carport or deck!!! and at least 25ft from your house in any direction (the oil can and will stain concrete).......that square base and no cutoff if the pot falls off is just asking for trouble......the brinkman has a spring loaded cutoff switch to stop the gas if pot falls over and also a temprature cutoff that will shut down the burner if it exceeds the 400 degree flashpoint of peanut oil

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good first experience with fryer We bought this fryer for several reasons: we wanted an inexpensive "entry level" fryer, we wanted something that had gotten good reviews and we were going to hold our first "Lobsterfest" and needed something big to do lobsters, steamers, potatoes and corn on the cob in. We didn't buy it with the intention of frying a turkey - yet! The free delivery was nice, and setting it up was very easy - attach the burn plate and the burner, put two batteries in the time and you're done. Once you read the directions on starting it up, it's easy to get going. It brought our 1/2 filled pot of water to a boil in no time, and all our food came out perfectly cooked. I wish that there WASN'T a 15 minute timer, though. I understand that for safety when frying a turkey it's a good idea, but once I figured out that when the green light starts flashing you have 5 minutes until it shuts off, I was good to go. Just timed myself to watch closely at the 5 minute mark, and I was right there to relight the burner. I really liked our first try with this, and besides more lobsters, we ARE going to try a small turkey at some point. I recommend this fryer, as long as you understand it DOES have a time and you HAVE to operate it WITH the timer. I've read some people have "rewired" the timer to bypass it but I'm not an electrical genius and with my luck, bad things would happen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product for the price. The only issue I had with this product was that the burner just didn't seem to burn very efficiently and took quite a long time to heat the oil to temperature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! Inexpensive! I looked all over the place for a turkey fryer and the HD price made it an easy decision. I saw ads for this same cooker On Sale at a large national chain, it was a good price there at $79., I saved $15. here! Sturdy and works well!
