Hello new faces 🙂

Hooray for the new Turkey Fryer!

Safety Tips:

  • Be aware of stability – may easily tip over
  • Place fryer in an open area away from all walls, fences, or other structures including children and animals
  • Never use in, on, or under any structure that can catch fire.
  • Raise and lower food slowly to reduce splatter and avoid burns.
  • Cover bare skin when adding or removing food
  • Immediately turn gas off if fire occurs
