I’ve used this product several times and I have no complaints. The first use was a little hard getting the pilot to start but since then it starts with no problem.

SO I have a big, new, expensive pile of crap. Waiting if parts will be listed after covid but can't use item at all. Contacted Masterbuilt, they never responded with available parts.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I GOT THIS MASTERBUILT PROPANE FRYER W/ THERMOSTAT CONTROL ABOUT A WEEK AGO AND THIS PRODUCT IS SO AMAZING EASY TO SET UP SO EASY TO USE AND SO EASY TO CLEAN AFTER USE.

DEFINITELY MY GO TO FRYER!!

So User Friendly!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Masterbuilt propane fryer with thermostat control is simply amazing.It takes approximately ten minutes to get it set up straight from the box. It is very sturdy, and the fryer is stable. I set mine up on a cement patio. Lighting the unit is easy. I used a long lighter meant for lighting candles, but if you don't have one, there is an attachment with a chain on one of the sides near the handle that allows one to slip a match into it and light it that way. The handle on the other side is set up to hold the lid when checking on the food as it cooks. The temperature dial and the enclosed thermometer are helpful in determining how hot the oil, and/or water is. I got the oil up to 350 degrees for frying onion rings, chicken, and french fries. I used the two small baskets for these items, although there is also a larger basket included. The fryer heats up quickly, and our food was ready in record time. This is so much nicer than frying indoors. My kitchen remained grease, and odor free! This is a very high-quality fryer, and will last for years if cared for properly. There is an enclosed spout on the side that is used for draining the unit of oil after it has cooled off. After I drained it, I used sudsy hot water to wash out the inside, and again used the spout to empty it. I dried the inside, placed the enclosed lid on it, and covered it with a special cover I separately bought for this purpose. I intend to take very good care of mine. My entire family was pleased with the resulting meal. I highly recommend this propane fryer to everyone who loves to eat good food, and has the space to use it.

Answer to my deep frying needs
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am an avid outdoor cooker. I love being able to cook outside to keep my kitchen clean, and my house from smelling like food. The Masterbuilt Propane Fryer with Thermostat control is an amazing addition to my outdoor cooking arsenal. I love that I can deep fry in it, it takes 2-4 gallons of oil and comes with 3 baskets, one large (for a turkey), and two smaller baskets for smaller items. It starts up like my grill with a push button igniter, and the temperature can be controlled with the knob from 200-400 degrees Fahrenheit. It heats up fast and I love that it is contained in one sturdy unit. This unit is large, but I love the height. I also love that it can be used for more than one purpose. The oil can be drained easily out of the side, and it can be filled with water for a crab boil! I haven't done that yet, but I can't wait to be able to have a gathering and host a crab boil outdoors. My guests will love it! This is an impressive and versatile piece of equipment, that I know will bring a ton of enjoyment and cooking pleasure to my life. I trust the Masterbuilt name, and know that it means quality. Thank you for an amazing addition to my outdoor kitchen!
