“The Big Easy is all it is billed to be. Easy to put together, easy to use, and easy to clean. I cooked with it for the 1st time on Christmas morning and closely followed the instructions. The turkey was moist as could be on the inside and the skin was nicely crisp and golden brown. Beautiful turkey and very tasty. I am very pleased with this purchase and recommend it to anyone not wanting to get into the expense of oil, and the disposale/storage/safety issues associated with oil….(read more here: Char broil oil less infra red turkey fryer)”
“After assembling the cooker and seasoning it per the provided instructions, I cooked two small hens, probably 3.5-4 lbs. each. Seasoned the birds with a dry rub I concocted and let them marinate in the fridge about four hours before I was ready to cook them. The cooker is easy as anything to use and is pretty much hassle-free. I am accustomed to frying chickens and turkeys in oil, so I was concerned that the birds were not getting as brown as quickly as with the conventional oil fryers. I wound up cooking the birds for two hours and they emerged as a light golden brown, with spots of darker colored “burn” marks on the wings and tops of the breasts.

Pros & Cons
No hot oil to burn, splatter or spill. No expensive oil to purchase, clean-up or recycle. Saves about $60 in oil that you can use only twice. Cooks in about 8 minutes per pound. Use a dry rub because it does not get washed of in the oil. No time to wait for oil to cool of after using it.
Found a few minor cons for this big easy turkey fryer.
Construction is a little “cheap” the welds are not top quality. Cooking takes longer than in an oil fryer. Oil fryer might last longer because it is build heavier. The thermometer is not real accurate.

Summary of what we think about the grill
(Back to Top)
After reading a ton of reviews on various sites and reading through all kind of comments on forums
I can not find to many bad things about the char broil oil less turkey fryer model number: 14101480.
The only few things I could find was the quality of the fryer. Some people mentioned the poor quality of the welds and that it fell apart after a year.
I think just like any other grill it might have to do with maintenance and storage, because most people do not mention anything about that.
Like always you can have a faulty product and that is why it is important to start using it as fast as you can and find out the problems within the warranty period of 3 months.
All the meat that I have read about comes out great and moist.
This infrared turkey fryer can be used for all kinds of larger curt meats.
I have read and seen recepies with chicken, beef, ribs, ham, turkey and many other cuts of meat.
Like with any grill we recommend to use a quality thermometer. The one that comes with this turkey fryer seems to be no exception and I found out that it can be off a lot.
The time to cook a turkey seems to be a little longer, but if you add the time it takes to heat up the oil in a turkey fryer that uses oil, the total time with the oil less infrared is shorter.
We always recommend a quality grill cover. This will protect your grill not just from bad weather, but also from getting dirty or damaged. This will probably also have an effect on how long you can use this turkey fryer.
