Cooking turkeys in specially designed turkey fryers is becoming a very popular way to cook turkeys or chickens. There are two types of these fryers available from Gourmet Kitchen Essentials. The traditional large 30 quart pot that accommodates enough cooking oil to fry up to a 18 lb turkey is great for creating a delicious fried turkey with crisp skin and tender meat. A new and very safe way to fry turkeys involves an infrared cooking technology that also delivers juicy results inside and a crispy outside every time. This new technology uses no oils and is a healthier and safer way to cook your favorite bird. A rotary ignition provides a quick and easy light with the turn of a knob, and a front access grease tray makes cleaning an easy task. Fry whole turkeys, chickens, or roasts up to 16 pounds.
