The Masterbuilt Butterball Professional Series Indoor Electric is the best turkey fryer, according to reviews. The Butterball is different from most other turkey fryers in that it's electric. Most other turkey fryers are propane fryers, which necessitate buying and storing a propane tank, plus you need to use them outdoors. So an electric fryer is an advantage because you don't need to contend with weather and wind. The Butterball turkey fryer is large enough to fry a 14-pound bird. Features include an oil drain and fold-away lid with viewing window. You can also get away with using less oil in this electric turkey fryer than in a propane fryer: 2 gallons as opposed to 3. On the downside, Masterbuilt's warranty coverage for the Butterball is only 90 days, considerably shorter than what other manufacturers offer.
The Butterball has attracted many Amazon.com reviews, and the vast majority of them are very positive, citing moist, deliciously fried poultry, easy cleaning, and the superior safety of using an indoor unit. We also found user reviews at Walmart.com.

Scott Anderson, the associate food service director at Shepherd University, reviews the Butterball turkey fryer, cooking up smaller foods like broccoli and pot stickers, as well as chicken. Anderson says the Butterball turkey fryer performs well; it quickly retains its heat when food is added, and it's easy to use and clean. He does think the fryer basket needs extra cleaning time.
