Compare Electric Turkey Fryers to Propane Turkey Fryers 

Both electric turkey fryers and propane turkey fryers have their pros and cons.  Here are some of the differences between the two turkey fryers.  We hope we can help you make a decision that is right for you and your family.


Electric Turkey Fryers


Propane Turkey Fryers

PRO:  Electric turkey fryers are convenient.  Your not lugging around a 20 lb propane cylinder.  Plug it in!!

CON:  That darn cylinder . . . lugging it, refilling it . . .

CON:  Electric turkey fryers are made for indoor use.  Have you ever fried chicken inside?  You feel like you are wearing the grease for days.  The smell seems like it won't ever go away.

PRO:  You aren't smelling and feeling like a deep fried chicken or turkey.

CON:  Electric turkey fryers don't heat up as fast as propane turkey fryers.  Once you add your bird to the grease, the temperature decreases dramatically.  It is hard to bring your oil temperature back up.

PRO:  Propane turkey fryers take less time to heat the oil.  They also take less time to bring your oil back to the right temperature.

PRO:  The electric turkey fryers have a safety feature that automatically shuts off when your oil gets too hot.  It also lets you know if your oil is at the right temperature (via the light at the top).

CON:  The only way to tell if the grease is hot enough is via use of a thermometer.  There is no safety feature as far as automatic shut off.

PRO:  The electric turkey fryer is a little safer.  Its harder for kids and animals to knock into it.

CON:  Well, not really a con.  Hopefully, you will be very careful not to have the kids or animals around your turkey fryer.  But still, there is more of a chance for someone to get hurt.

CON:  They are just B-O-R-I-N-G.  Nothin' like a Cajun calling you a wuss.

PRO:  Sitting outside, getting some fresh air, deep frying a turkey and having fun.  The same reason you have a barbecue pit.  It's just not the same.


Basically, clean up is about the same.  If you have ever tasted a deep fried turkey, you already know that it is worth it.  Clean up is just as bad as cleaning that roasting pan or baking sheet.
