Char-Broil 08101480 The Big Easy Oil-Less Infrared Turkey Fryer
If cooking in oil doesn’t appeal to you but you still want the taste of fried turkey, check out Char-Broil's The Big Easy TRU-Infrared Oil-less Turkey Fryer which is a completely oil-free fryer. The Big Easy is so named because it uses infrared waves to fry the bird without ever touching any oil. Technically, this makes for a healthier turkey with less calories from the oil, yet it still seals in all of the natural juices as effectively as oil-frying.
This non-stick fryer allows you to cook up to a 16 pound bird with the 16,000 BTU burner keeping it hot and cooking the entire time. You'll cook turkey at about 10 minutes per pound which is about twice as long as actual frying yet one-third less time than roasting. Even though it’s a slower means of cooking, this hassle-free, oil-less fryer is a very safe alternative compared to traditional fryers, and that alone may be worth the cost of admission to many consumers.
