Ratings & Reviews
BETTER BASKET is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great concept, But old faithful rules the day I have only used this so far for a turkey. As much of a pain the old basket is to use with a bird, this one was harder because there was no support until you get it hanging. Great idea and I'm not giving up on it yet. Maybe with a little practice and some different cuts it will be great. Potential for greatness, will update later

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and easy to clean! I own a Big Easy cooker. Soon as I found that Char-Broil stocks this basket that I just had to have it! Far superior to the original basket! Very easy to remove the chicken or turkey with no hassle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fold up basket Fantastic, if you have turkey char broil, no good if you have later model 3 in 1 as it doesn’t reach the sides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what was needed This is the best for turkey "Big Easy-ing" Bird goes in slick & easy and comes out with no hassles. Fold down & into the dish washer and you're done. (Keep your original basket for ribs, small double birds, kabobs, etc.) Definitely get one for yourself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Collapsible Better Raoster Basket Wonderful idea and works great. No fuss loading or unloading turkey. Fits in dishwasher much better than the non-collapsible basket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Collapsible basket Char-broil contacted me and asked if I would like to test the new basket and write a review for it since I had registered my big easy. At first I thought what's the purpose of this thing but agreed to give it a shot. I received it the week before Thanksgiving so it was good timing. Putting the turkey in and getting it out of the basket is much easier than the original basket. The turkey leaned a little bit in basket so the coloring or the skin was a little different on the side that was closer to the side. The lid doesn't fit flat anymore as it sits on top of the basket which produces a gap and if bumped the lid could easily be knocked off. Let me preface this last statement by saying I only us the big easy 2-3 times a year Overall I believe it's a good product but don't think I would have bought it if I hadn't received free from Char-broil but after testing I will probably us the new collapsible basket before the original basket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I received the collapsible basket from Char Broil as a gift and was asked to review the product. So, here it goes, I decided to cook a turkey in it and Murphy's Law took over. First the turkey weighing in at 14.75 lbs. was hard to get into the basket because the handle is so close to the top of the rim. Secondly, while cooking the turkey shifted in the basket causing it to cook one-sided. Then after cooking the cables surrounding the turkey was snagging on the wings as I was trying to remove it. Maybe some of my problems were my fault, I just don't know. I will continue to use it and see what else develops from its use. One thing though the clean up was a whole lot quicker. Just collapse it into dishpan and simply soak and then wash and rinse, no bulky basket to deal with. I would recommend this product even though my first time using it was a little trying.

Questions & Answers

Would this basket work in an actual deep fryer?

Asked by: GSchmaed
This Better Basket is designed to be used with our Big Easy and we would not recommend using it with a deep fryer that uses oil.

Can you cook chicken wings in it?  If yes how many at a time?  Do I need a basket?  If so what model?

Asked by: Jimneb
This collapsible roaster basket is not able to support a wing/leg rack. However, the leg rack (model # 2848975) will easily attach to a standard Big Easy basket.
