This is an awesome turkey fryer, but it's so much more! It's so easy to cook turkeys and anything else your heart desires. Cook turkey, chicken, roasts (pork/beef), sausage, ribs etc. If you like crispy skin on your turkey/chicken... man, it's like eating cracklins. Beef and pork gets that awesome crust too, which seals-in moisture. The drip pan below will have all the fat, and you make use it to make some killer gravy. Not only can you cook the main entrée in this fryer, add your sides (veggies) later-on and save time. Cooking your entire meal in this makes cooking so much easier. I recommend ordering the accessories like I did: the extra basket, rib hooks, meat hooks, skewers and leg holders allows you to make use of every inch of cooking space. Clean-up is very easy, I spray the basket and accessories with cooking spray and wash in the dishwasher. You will not only enjoy this cooker, you will find out that you will use it more than you think. P.S. Don't forget to season the cooker, just like an iron skillet.
