How much oil will I need if I am doing a 18 lb turkey

Asked by GobbleGobble November 4, 2017
1
Answer

Thank you for your question! This fryer is rated at 30 quarts for a max 18 lb turkey, however, you never want to fill the pot more than 80% full to avoid safety and fire hazards. The most definitive way to see how much oil to put in is to first use water. Placing the turkey into the pot, cover with water, then remove turkey to see how much oil to put in the pot. Be sure there is at least 3 inches between the top of the liquid and the top of the pot when turkey is submerged! Also, please follow all the safety guidelines in your manual to make sure you avoid overfilling the unit as this can be dangerous. Thank you for choosing Masterbuilt and if you have any further questions, please give us a call! 800-489-1581

Great fryer
I bought this to fry a turkeys for thanksgiving. Performed as advertised. Easily controlled the temperature with the regulator.
by Nalmal103
Can't beat it for the price
I bought the turkey fryer specifically for brewing beer and parkerizing metal parts, and it works well for both. The timer (for lack of a better word) is ridiculous, but if you're handy (or have a machine shop like myself) you can deal with it. Otherwise, you need to stand by it and reset the timer every ten minutes. If you're frying a turkey, you're probably hanging out outside and chatting with friends and family anyway. I would have preferred a stainless pot over aluminum, but it has held up under many batches of beer just fine so far. It was assembled in about ten minutes, and the base is sturdy enough to hold a larger pot if needed, although it wouldn't be cradled by the base but sit on top instead. I'm happy with the fryer and will likely buy another. Can't beat free shipping. Maybe someday I'll actually use it to fry a turkey.

Great product
I bought this a few months ago and I am very pleased. I have owned different brands and they struggle to have enough heat to recover oil temperatures quickly after inserting the turkey. No problem with this fryer.

I needed a replacement gas hose and regulator/valve to replace timer-attached valve. Replacement does not have the timer and works much better.

Timer
The timer should run longer before shutting off. 15 minutes isn’t long enough. Other than that great unit.
