The Butterball Indoor Turkey Fryer and Chef Basket at Thanksgiving

The Butterball Indoor Turkey Fryer

I’ve often wanted to fry a turkey. So when the Butterball Indoor Turkey Fryer came out, I just knew it was for me! I guess that is what happens when you watch also many As Observed On Tv Commercials. My wife was completely against this purchase to begin with. She was afraid of indoor fires, and the believed of obtaining a fried turkey for Thanksgiving didn’t appeal to her. But when I ordered it anyway, she stated that the turkey was my responsibility from then to when we sat down to consume turkey on Thanksgiving Day!

From a security standpoint, I was confident that it was okay to use it indoors. It’s different from other turkey fryers in that it uses a submerged electric heating element with sixteen hundred and fifty watts of energy. In mixture with the dual thermostats, the cooking temperature will be exact every single time and there is actually no chance of flare-ups or fire.

I’m undoubtedly not a cook, so almost everything was a 1st time expertise for me. I knew that the turkey ought to be totally thawed before putting it in the fryer, so I produced positive that it was and got rid of the neck and giblets. I added oil to the fill line (about two gallons for a 10 pound bird) and preheated to 400 degrees. While the oil was heating, I dried the turkey with paper towels and seasoned with an off the shelf generic rub. After pre-heating the oil, I gently lowered the bird into the fryer and got a beer! In about 40 minutes, the dark meat reached about 175 degrees and the white meat was at about 170 degrees so I knew it was accomplished. I removed it slowly and put in a draining pan for about 20 minutes prior to carving.

I never imply to brag, but it was the best turkey I’ve ever eaten! Cleanup was super easy, also…I just just recovered and disposed of the remaining oil and the inner bowl rinsed clean with soap and water. Appears like I am the Thanksgiving Chef from now on!

Chef Basket

So although I was tough at function frying the turkey whilst watching Television with brew in hand, my wife was employing this new Chef Basket gadget she ordered to steam vegetables. She truly ordered the Chef Basket to prepare noodles, spaghetti or french fries. But because we have been getting fried turkey, she turned in inside out and utilized it to steam vegetables rather than performing fries.

The Chef Basket is 1 of these new inventions that your kitchen shouldn’t be without having. It is a collapsable basket that folds flat when not in use, but opens to a colander sort basket to use for frying, steaming, boiling or par-boiling. One of the excellent features is that the handles do not absorb or transmit heat, so you can take the Chef Basket out of the boiling water or oil and go right to the table or serving dish with no possessing to transfer the contents to a strainer. Inverted, it becomes a steamer for vegetables, and that is how my wife used it for our Thanksgiving asparagus.

Our Thanksgiving meal prep could not have been any less difficult this year! The Butterball Indoor Turkey Fryer and the Chef Basket took the tension out of the kitchen and gave us the very best tasting Thanksgiving ever!
