Using a deep fryer has become a popular way to prepare Thanksgiving meals, but cooking a turkey in a vat of boiling oil can lead to serious burns. The National Fire Protection Association discourages the use of outdoor gas-fueled turkey fryers that immerse the turkey in hot oil because of their inherent dangers and risks of the cooking process. “Units can be over-full, and when the turkey is added, the hot oil can spill over and catch fire from the direct gas flame used to heat the fryer,” cautioned Jeff Smith, fire chief for Volusia County Fire Rescue. “It's a dangerous process that should be avoided. New oil-free fryers put the cook and family members at much less risk.” If you are going to deep-fry your turkey anyway, limit the risks as much as possible. Start by using the fryer outside and at a safe distance from the home. “Never use a turkey fryer in a garage or on a porch,” Smith added. “Make sure you don't use too much oil, and never leave the turkey fryer unattended.” Follow these additional safety tips to further reduce your risk to danger when cooking: · Establish a no-kid zone around the fryer. · Don't wear loose-fitting clothing with long sleeves when you're cooking. · Keep flammable items – including oven mitts, towels, dry grass and dead leaves – away from the fryer. · If you're sleepy or have consumed alcohol, don't use a fryer. · Keep a working fire extinguisher nearby. · Follow the manufacturer's instructions. If you have a taste for deep-fried turkey, you may want to consider going to a specialty store or restaurant, or consider a new type of “oil-less” turkey fryer.
