Food Find: The Waring Digital Rotisserie Turkey Fryer

Fried turkey is a wonderful thing.

Fried turkey is a wonderful thing.

We are constantly on the prowl for cool products!

When big-time Little Rock foodie Steve Shuler invites you over for a dinner party, you just say yes and worry about babysitter logistics at a later time. He can flat out cook and I’m not about to miss out on his latest culinary creations, especially when they’re paired with Joel DiPippa’s libations.

So…what did Steve have in store for us last Friday night? Deep. fried. turkey.

Steve is the proud owner of the Waring Digital Rotisserie Turkey Fryer, and before he instructs others at Williams-Sonoma on how to use the apparatus, he decided to test it out on some friends.

Gone are the days of setting up the turkey fryer in the driveway. No longer must you lower the bird in a vat of bubbling grease and sprint away, all the time praying your buddy doesn’t have to bust out the fire extinguisher.

This fairly compact turkey fryer sits right on your kitchen counter, doesn’t seem to splash oil (if used properly), and isn’t as noisy as one might expect. The best part … unlike traditional fryers, the Waring rotates the bird in a bath of 375-degree oil, allowing the turkey to come up for air during half the cooking process. Watching it is absolutely mesmerizing.

The end result … a beautiful and deliciously juicy turkey that will certainly impress your guests. Heck, even the breast meat was as moist as I’ve ever had it. And because the temperature was digitally-set, the consistent fry-job locked out the grease.

The Waring isn’t cheap, but if you take pride in making that perfect turkey, it’s well worth the investment.

Special thanks to Steve and Jen for having us over!
