Turkey Fryer Safety
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Inserra & Kelley. As we approach this holiday of gratefulness for all we have been blessed with, Inserra & Kelley wants to remind you that turkey fryers are extremely dangerous. Please observe the following safety tips if you plan to utilize a turkey fryer this holiday.
- Oil and water don’t mix
Thaw completely in refrigerator.
Marinades and water can cause oil to spill over.
- Never use too much oil
- Protective Gear
Use well-insulated potholders or oven mitts.
Use safety goggles.
- Use outdoors
Keep a safe distance from buildings and any other flammable materials.
- Never on wooden deck
- Never in a garage
- Put on flat surface
- Never leave the fryer unattended
Oil will heat until it catches fire.
- Keep children and pets far away
- Use fire extinguisher – never use water on an oil fire
Call 9-1-1 if fire is not completely extinguished.
Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving weekend!
