Turkey Frying Safety

The holidays are notorious for sparking an increase in injuries, leaving many people struggling to handle the financial, emotional, and physical consequences of these unexpected accidents. While they are meant to be a joyous time, holidays such as Thanksgiving do unfortunately see an increase in these incidents. Many people have adopted the tradition of deep frying their turkey for Thanksgiving, as it is generally far faster than using an oven. However, by using a fryer of this size, you are risking quite a lot--though we do not recommend against using a deep-fryer for your turkey, we suggest you are careful to ensure you have a safe Thanksgiving.

Consider the following safety tips for deep frying your turkey:

  • Always deep fry outside and away from anything flammable, such as a wooden deck, plants, etc. Keep the fryer in a place with good ventilation.
  • Make sure everyone is aware of where the fryer is in order to avoid knocking it over.
  • Properly thaw the turkey, as the moisture could risk an explosion.
  • Follow any and all instructions specific to your fryer.
  • Protect your skin and eyes from oil splatters.
  • Keep an eye on the fryer’s temperature.
