Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than trying to deep fry. My wife and I saw this at Lowes right before Thanksgiving, and she just thought we had to have one. Purchased it and about a 17 pound turkey. Injected it with Tony Chachere's Creole Injectable, rubbed the outside with olive oil and a little Tony Chachere's Creole seasoning and let her rip. The bird miraculously turned a perfect brown on the outside near the end and the meat was juicy, with great flavor. Have done several chickens since, and plan to do a brisket this summer. Great product at a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 20 degrees out and snowing on Thanksgiving Day. I have cooked two turkeys with this product and will never go back to a traditional turkey fryer. I gave the TRU-infrared cooking system its first run through, one month before Thanksgiving. The first bird was 14 pounds and was prepared without dry rub or injection. The temperature outside was 60 degrees. The cook time was on the low end at 10 minutes a pound, using the cover (as directed) at the end of the cook time. The result was a perfectly browned bird with a moist texture to the meat. My 2nd bird was 15 pounds and was injected (basic creole butter recipe, without dry rub) the night before cooking. The temperature outside was 20 degrees (and snowing). The cook time was on the high end at 15 minutes a pound, using the cover (as directed) during the entire cook time. The result was a perfectly browned bird with a juicy texture to the meat. My wife and I have hosted Thanksgiving for over a decade and average 30+ guests. She brines and roasts a bird in the oven and I fry one outside. At the end of the day, my bird was devoured and we had plenty of left overs from hers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cooker This cooker actually works better than I thought it would. It is great for cooking Rib Roast, ribs, boston butts, pork roast, chicken and turkey. What I like is put the food on to cook and forget about it until it is about done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Space Maker When I remodeled my kitchen I had to have the nice high BTU Viking stainless steel stove. THEN came the holidays and once I put the turkey in the oven I had no room for any side dishes, so cooking that first holiday dinner was a nightmare. I saw the oil free turkey cooker in the store and new right away this was my salvation. We purchased it 2 days before Thanksgiving and just took a shot that it would work out. WOW, was everyone impressed, first of all it cooked it in a fraction of the normal cooking time, it was crispy on the outside and so juicy on the inside. And it has a fabulous drip pan with disposable liners that made the best gravy I have ever made. Clean up is practically nothing. Since that holiday I now use it in the summer (keeps my kitchen cool) I have the rack where you can cook 2 chickens at one time. A very versatile product and it delivers exactly what it promises- even easy cooking and easy clean up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great healthy food! It cooks everything perfectly with no oil! If only I had every product made for this, I could cook so much more on it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product So far I have cooked 2 turkeys in it and both came out superb. Very moist and perfectly browned skin. I have fried turkeys in the past and when you consider the tine needed to get the grease up to temp, this grease less fryer is much faster. Also, you don't have the hot grease spattering everywhere. A much safer way to fry a turkey or chicken.

I purchased the extra basket fory Big Easy Turkey fryer and want to cook 2.whole chickens....I want to know how long I should cook them...add the weight of the chickens together or average weight of the 2??

Asked by: Noehring
It normally takes about ten to fifteen minutes per pound to cook a chicken in the Big Easy. To cook two chickens you should average the weights together. Make sure to monitor the internal temperatures. The top chicken may cook a little faster than the bottom one.

I noticed that several people commented by putting the lid on at the end of cooking a turkey. I thought you left the mesh lid on during the total cooking time. Was i mistaken?

Asked by: Gary11
The mesh lid should only be used around the end of the cook. The lid helps to hold in heat and darken/crisp the skin. Give us a call at 1-800-241-7548 for more information.

How do I season the inside of the cooker prior to the first use? And how often does it need to be re-seasoned?

Asked by: Jill1227
To best season we recommend coating all interior surfaces of the cooking chamber with vegetable oil. If you use a vegetable spray, wipe down the cooking chamber after spraying to ensure an even coat. Start The Big Easy and let it burn until the vegetable oil burns off and stops smoking. The shiny finish of the stainless steel cooking chamber should now have a very dark brown or bronze color. As long as the inner parts of the of the Big Easy are cleaned regularly it should not need be seasoned multiple times.
