Approximately 15 deaths and $27 million in property damages are caused by Turkey friers every year.
Use our tips to keep your home and family safe:
1-Don’t fry inside your home, garage, on a porch or deck. Keep the frier at least 30 feet from anything flammable.
2-Read the frier instructions carefully.
3-Be sure your turkey is totally defrosted and dry before you fry (oil and water don’t mix).
4-Use the correct amount of oil.
5-Always wear heat proof mitts or gloves.
6-Keep pets and kids far away from the frier!
7-Be sure to completely turn off the fuel tank when you’re finished.
