Cuisinart Griddle Review: Cuisinart GR-4 Griddler Stainless-Steel

It helps you prepare more servings of more kinds of food in less time, so you can cook for a crowd — no one has to wait!

Two dishwasher-safe drip cups to collect grease are included, plus a dishwasher-safe scraping tool for easy griddle cleanup.

A floating hinge and two sets of cooking plates turn this Cuisinart Griddle multifunctional unit into a contact grill, panini press, large open grill, or griddle. Made of brushed stainless steel, this four-in-one, space-saving appliance offers cooking options that range from pancakes, sausages, and grilled cheese to fish, hamburgers, and panini.

Electric Turkey Fyers: They Make Some Gorgeous Tasting Turkey

Deep-frying whole turkeys has become fantastically popular in southern Louisiana over the past several years. The turkey is anything but greasy; the deep-frying process seals the outside and the turkey remains incredibly juicy, while the skin gets wonderfully crispy.

Just be careful you don’t do like my friend Rick did and set your pot of oil on fire … more non-klutzy people manage to do just fine with this. Seriously, be careful and always always do this outdoors only. A few people have burned their houses down trying to do this indoors or under a carport. Done carefully and outdoors, this is a safe and wonderful way to make turkey.

There are a zillion ways you can season this with the injector — some folks like using the liquid seafood boil seasoning (which I do not recommend … that stuff is for boiling seafood, not frying turkeys), but there are as many different ways as there are Louisianians. For instance, Bill from Bunkie, La., who fries turkeys frequently, wrote in and said that for injecting he uses one bottle of liquid garlic juice, one bottle of Tiger Sauce, one bottle of Cajun Sunshine sauce, and two tablespoons of red pepper. Try anything you like. Your mileage may vary.

Another Gumbo Pages reader says, "I have been deep frying turkeys now for about 3 years. Basically I use 5 gallons peanut oil heated to 375 degrees. This allows me to cook turkeys up to 20 lbs. My electric equipment is an outdoor stove outputting about 180,000 BTU’s and a 60 quart pot with strainer basket. I have just been seasoning the turkey with a rub comprising of salt, garlic and pepper. Usually I will do from one to three turkeys at a setting, using less seasoning on the second and third turkey. I have found if the oil is strained through cheese cloth it can be used if stored in a cool place for up to 6 months." Kevin Jolley writes in to say, "I just wanted to write to correct a few things about electric turkey fryers your fried turkey recipe. 1. keep your oil temperature to between 325-350; 2. turkeys 12 lbs and under 2-1/2 minutes per pound, and 12 lbs and over 3 minutes per pound; 3. if your turkey is floating it is overcooked. We always use a Cajun Injector and an injector sauce."
