A turkey fryer can make so much more than just turkeys. You can fry fish, potatoes, anything in mass quantities. You can also make corn on the cob, low country boil, lobsters, shrimp, anything can be mass boiled in here too. I have also heard of it being used to make beer and to can.It was stated that it helps keep the house so much cooler by not having to use the inside appliances in the heat of summer. What a great idea! Have fun testing out your fryer!
