1650 Watts of Electrical Power
Housed in its sheek metal design and sturdy foundation, the 20010109 Butterball Professional Series Electric Turkey Fryer definitely packs the good punch you’d expect at first glance. All that electrical consumption powers its heaters to reach high temperatures in record time, enough to fry a pound’s worth of meat in four minutes. All this work done in a manner that doesn’t make you fear for your safety the way standard open oil vats and propane tanks about the yard may bring.
Large Capacity Inner Pot
This turkey fryer uses 33% less oil than standard turkey frying techniques does, mainly because the machine houses a designed space suitable for submerging the bird whole, maximizing the depth while keeping the rest of the dimensions fitted nicely for a maximum 14-lb fowl. The electrical power usage also is strong enough to heat the oil and conserve that heat more adequately. The result is a delicious juicy fried turkey or chicken in a safe environment.
Built-In Drain Clip on Fry Basket
The fry basket comes with a built-in clip that you can use to hang the turkey as it drains the oil that’s clung all over it after frying time. This also makes removing the basket from the inner pot a lot easier with something to hold on to firmly, thus making plating a breeze and preventing the messy oil spills and splatters on the kitchen floor or counter. For convenience and design purposes as well, the machine houses a hideaway storage compartment for the electrical cord so as to keep everything well kept.
Added Safety Features
Safety is a primary concern with frying such large fowls as turkeys and some chickens. The Masterbuilt 20010109 is an alternative method to frying such large fowls to the more “outdoor” method of using large oil vats over propane tanks. This machine brings the best of indoor frying that greatly minimizes fire and burn hazards while maintaining the fried juicy goodness of a thanksgiving meal. The fry indicator tells you when frying is complete and the automatic shut-off function turns the machine off when it reaches temperatures that are too high.
- Electric indoor frying removes safety hazards
- Cooks up to 14 pounds in minimum time
- Easy to use, easy to drain, easy to clean
- Makes fried turkey just as good as propane tanks do
- Large enough capacity to fry whole
- Lesser amounts of oil cool down faster when adding in the turkey

The great thing about this machine is that it delivers great tasting fried delicacies while virtually removing the hazards that come with outdoor frying that uses propane tanks and large oil vats. We can’t deny that a very significant part of frying large fowls is the safety aspect and Masterbuilt has done a very impressive job in addressing this in their machine. The heating element built into the immersion pot reacts more readily to temperature changes than that built into the cooking vessel. This is what makes this machine at par with outdoor method frying.
Albeit the heating time for the 2-gallon maximum oil used for frying can reach up to 30 minutes, the fast-frying process of 4 minutes per pound is more than enough to make up for the heating time for the oil. It is important to note though that the maximum temperature of 375 degrees that heating the oil can reach will be cooled down once the bird is loaded into the immersion pot. It is then necessary to regain the temperature levels for that complete fry.
Turkey fryer reviews online do recommend that you use generously small-side birds to prevent the oil for cooling down more because the larger the fowl, the more the oil can cool down by conduction. But all the same, the 14-lb maximum weight still delivers you great tasting fried turkey at the minimum time range – all you need to do is perhaps add another 5 or so minutes of extra frying to get the most ideal golden-brown fry. You may have to expect less crispy skin as well but it is difficult to get that perfect crips without using butter for frying so it’s still a good fry in the end.
Overall, this machine works extremely well doing what it’s supposed to do. A powerhouse device that brings large food frying conveniently back into the kitchen housed in a well-built and beautifully-designed exterior. Truly “masterbuilt”.
