Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Can be used indoors and outdoors
Since there isn’t any gas or oil involved you can safely use it outdoors and indoors.
Pro Can achieve a smoked flavor
Thanks to the wood chip pan you can add a smoked flavor to the meat.
Pro Safe to use
There is no hot oil involved that can potential catch fire or cause severe burns, so this fryer is safe to use and doesn’t require constant supervision.
Pro Healthy cooking
Since there is no grease involved when frying, the cooked turkey is healthier and contains less calories compared to deep fried turkeys.
Con No accessories available
Masterbuilt doesn’t offer any additional accessories so you can’t expand the versatility of the fryer.
Expect about 10 minutes per pound cooking time compared to 2-3 minutes when using an oil fryer.
Con Short electricity cable
The cable is 4 feet long so it limits you without an extension cable.
Con Small capacity
While it theoretically can be used for turkey up to 18 pounds, the instructions recommend a turkey closer to 12 pounds. This is because a large turkey literally has to be stuffed into the unit and this can cause it to burn around the outside before the inside gets cooked.
