The Big Easy® Oil-less Turkey Fryer is rated 4.8035 out of 5 by 402.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some Good Cook'n I bought the Big Easy infrared turkey fryer for Thanksgiving 2013. I did a comparison with two turkeys, one with the oil fryer and one infrared. Results were almost identical except without all the oil saturating the turkey. I ended up buying all the accessories to cook other meats. Kabobs, whole chickens, chicken drum sticks (salt and pepper only), spare ribs, baby back ribs, corned beef, pork roast, pork loins (boneless), and beef roast. Results are excellent with a crispy outside and juicy inside. Only thing I cook on the gas or charcoal grill now are steaks. Definitely got my moneys worth on this grill. Love it and I am still experimenting. Cook and Enjoy!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Oil-less Fryer I bougth this item last year for Thanksgiving. After trying the fryer with a whole chicken, which was excellent in flavor and juices, we planned to have two (2) turkeys available for a Thanksgiving party. We did one in my Oil-less fryer and another one in a regular kitchen oven. My turkey took less time to cook, and kept more juices than the regular oven turkey. Not to mention that the flavor was excellent. Easy to use and easy to clean. Our next goal, to cook a Turducken... (^_^)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best fried turkey we ever had!! My friends were raving about this oil less fryer so I gave it try, I wanted to get away from spending 80$ on peanut oil only to discard it after a couple of turkeys. And then the big chore of cleaning most fryers and discarding spent oil can be a hassle. This charbroil fryer is the perfect way to go. Clean up is simple, and it does all the work for you, just set a timer along with monitoring internal temperatures, fire it up and your birds will come out perfect every time. I even buy a small bottle of peanut oil and rub my poultry before seasonings. All of my guest were ecstatic about my turkeys even my wife went on and on. The skin comes out crispy as if it were deep fried. We even like to do whole chickens, and pulled pork with this fryer. Thank you charbroil for your amazing innovations and turning us back yard guys into 5 star master chefs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big easy is so easy ! When I found out about the Big Easy, I about flipped. A oil less deep frying, that was my biggest compliant was the messy oil. So, I used my sister and brother-in-law as my guinea pigs and bought them one for Christmas and we used it right then. My brother-law is a hunter and had plenty of game on hand. We cooked up some pork rump or butt, I forget the cut. We seasoned them babies up with some Cajun and those were some of best pork oh man. I had to go get myself a Big Easy, been cooking up chickens, ribs, hens, duck everything is awesome. Go get yourself a Big Easy and no more oil to clean or mess with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect We love it. It is Totally Awesome. We use it for just about everything. I am surprised that it is not advertised more, especially during the Holiday Season. The cooking channel still shows how to use the deep fryer with oil. With this fryer the chance of getting burned is slim. My husband has some gloves that he uses to reach in and get the turkey basket. No burning. We bought one for my brother-in-law and he too uses it frequently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a cooker We have owned this for over a year and we love it. I have also bought both my son one. We all use them often. We cook pork. . beef, and of course chicken and turkey. Every thing comes out juicy and tender. I like the fact that the meat is cooked 360 around and the meat is evenly cooked. Also there is not much clean up and the kitchen stays cool. What more could you ask for?

Can you put a stuffed bird in this?

Asked by: Macleod
We do not recommend stuffing the bird while cooking it in the Big Easy. This can keep heat from properly transferring.

how to bake potato

Asked by: pabo
Potatoes are easy in the Big Easy. Place them in the basket and then just let them cook. Using a rack will allow you to cook other foods at the same time.

How are you "frying" a turkey (or chicken or whatever) if it doesn't use any oil? Does the cooked bird really taste as moist as the fried ones? How long does it take? (I don't want to buy this if it is just like baking it in the oven.)

Asked by: NancyE
This Big Easy uses TRU-Infrared technology to cook. Depending on ambient temperatures, it normally takes around ten to fifteen minutes per pound to cook. Food tastes just as moist as it does with a standard fryer, but without all of the cleanup and mess. Follow this link to a video on the Big Easy for more information... http://ow.ly/SCZj0

We've had our CharBroil Natural Gas Grill for 12 years and love it. We have a natural gas line with hook-up outside. With the Big Easy Oil-less Fryer, what converter would we need? Would we be able to leave our current grill hooked up to use the Big Easy?

Asked by: GranPeg
The Big Easy cannot be converted to natural gas. It can only be used with a twenty pound propane tank.
