Consumer Reports Recommends Electric Turkey Fryers Rather Than Propane

Consumer Reports recommends that consumers try new, safer electric turkey fryers this Thanksgiving. Propane powered fryers have this nasty habit of setting themselves on fire—a feature that tends to annoy Consumer Reports, the fire department and the burn unit at your local hospital.

This year they’ve reviewed the Masterbuilt Turk & Surf electric fryer and say that it’s not only safer (it includes a feature that turns the heat off if the oil gets too crazy hot), but that it makes some delicious turkey.
