Deal of the day on a turkey fryer requires a close examination

Because of online shopping opportunities, new deals for limited-time offers are vying for our attention multiple times a day, via email alerts and text messages. But we need to examine the “amazing” offers closely before clicking the “Buy!” button. I got an email this week for a door buster sale on a 29-quart turkey fryer with an 11-quart frying pan. The regular price was reduced by 34 por ciento. The product description stated that the fryer is powered by propane, weighs 19.5 pounds and has a deep-fry thermometer, and heat-resistant handle.

The marketing blurb said that for Thanksgiving, there’s no experience quite like deep-frying a turkey. But I say, there’s no experience quite like having to call the fire department in a panic if your house catches on fire, and your Thanksgiving guests are quickly heading for the exits.

NFPA discourages the use of outdoor gas-fueled turkey fryers that immerse the turkey in hot oil. These turkey fryers use a substantial quantity of cooking oil at high temperatures, and units currently available for home use pose a significant danger that hot oil will be released at some point during the cooking process. The use of turkey fryers by consumers can lead to devastating burns or other injuries and the destruction of property.
