This is one of the best investments we have made.
Great for all sorts of outdoor cooking.
Especially frying a turkey, cooking corn and etc.
I WOULD GIVE THIS A 100
Overall good product. Flame distribution on the burner is excelent.
Only complaint is the safety shutoff. While I understand the reasoning for this it almost creates more of a safety issue. If you are not paying attention and the timer runs out, it requires you to take the pot off and relight the burner ... can be a problem when its full of hot oil.
The only thing I would change is to add one of those push button lighters like on grills such that you dont have to move the pot to relight the burner.
Wow, talk about a great turkey. I will NEVER cook one in the oven again!!
Used fryer for a turkey on Thanksgiving. Held a 20 lb'er with no problem. Good eating.
This product was much bigger than it looks. I am very excited to cook my turkey in this fryer. Would recommend also buying a chicken basket for wings.
Best Turkey I ever Had, will never cook a dry turkey again.
Wow!!! I'll never oven bake a turkey again...
The burner is a higher quality than I've seen on others and the safety devises did not hamper the operation. There are handy thoughts like lines indicating where to fill oil for various weights of turkeys.
We had never fried a turkey before; we'd always smoked ours overnight. My husband decided to try frying this year. We were missing one screw in the assembly package, but my husband worked around that. Frying times in the enclosed directions (yes, he actually read them!) were accurate. We went strictly by the guide, and everything came out perfectly. The turkeys were moist and flavorful (we used the cajun butter injectable marinade). It was nice not having to stay up all night and tend to the smoker for a change. We'll be frying again next year!
We love our King Kooker! We first used it on Thanksgiving and couldn't be happier with the way our turkey turned out - so juicy! The only thing I didn't like is that the instructions didn't give you any indication of how much oil you'll need. I bought 3 gallons thinking it would be enough for a 12 pound bird, but we were a tad short. You need between 3 and 4 gallons of oil. The instructions also said to use peanut oil, but I couldn't find any so we used regular vegetable oil. I highly recommend this product. It comes with everything you need.
I ordered this product to be shipped quickly because I needed it for Easter. It worked like a charm, but if I didn't need it right away, I would have returned it for another. The lid had 3 dents and the bottom of the pot had a large dent.
We love this product... We boiled corn on the cob, clams, crabs...The ONLY problem was with the shipment. We had many assorted dings and dents. It was a gift for Fathers Day, so my husband decided NOT to return it so we could use it then, and he hammered the dents out with a hammer. We SHOULD have returned it, but we do LOVE it, as we repaired it ourselves.
Worked very well, but had a problem getting it to light the first time. One part on the safety shut off needed to be tighted up, then it work as planned. The estimated cooking time was to be 40 minutes, but we gave it another 10 minutes. Cooked perfect, very tasty something different for Christmas.
I shopped everywhere I could think of, looking for this sort of cooker with the idea of being able to deep fry a turkey, but also have the basket to do things like crawfish boils. I couldn't find one anywhere that came with all of the parts and pieces like this one. I could buy them separately, but I would end up paying a multitude for it that way. This was the best price if found anywhere - even for packages that don't include the basket. My only wish is that the pot was bigger. That's not a complaint as the pot (I think it's 30 qt.) is comparable to other packages. I used it on the 4th of July to do a big crawfish boil and had 40 lbs. of live crawfish that I needed to do in 3 batches - a larger pot would have helped on that, but that is a pretty specialized need. I think that this package will meet 99% of everyone's needs out there. Great value, not complicated to setup and use and absolutely no problems with it whatsoever!!!
Good design...priced very well...I bought this for boiling crab/mussels, etc. The steamer pot inside is just the right size for seafood..this product came with a "turkey rack" and thermometer, I added two cooks mittens and a long nosed lighter, got a large rubber band to hold the heat sensor cord next to the pot (for transit), then put a bungee cord thru the base holding the pot inside the base...now I have a complete unit for shore parties!
I bought this for my husband as a Christmas gift and we had the BEST Christmas turkey ever! It takes as long to heat it up as it does to cook the bird, but once it's ready, the turkey is ready in a snap. I am already trying to figure out what to talk him into cooking for New Years!! I love this product!
Takes a while to get the hang of ... beware of cross winds. You need to be out of the wind and give it plenty of gas or the blow by activates (weird sound) and it cuts off. Once you turn the gas up, it cooks like a charm and holds the temp. The thermometer is a must to use. We cooked fish in Canola Oil, looking forward to doing a turkey or pork roast & Low Country Boil. Thought it was expensive, but found it to be worth the money. Takes a minimum of 2 1/4 gallons of oil or liquid to operate.
This product was exactly what I hoped for. We have made 3 fried turkeys since it's purchase. All have been excellent. Very easy to put together, use and clean. Can't wait to use it again
It was dented in many places. We could not wait for a replacement. It is a good product, but the dents were a disappointment.
U have yet to use this product, but I have assembled it and it seems very well put together. Lots of accessories for the price. I plan to use it for a low country boil Independence Day!! I'll write more then!
