Turkey Fryer Safety

Happy Thanksgiving




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.

Safety Tips

  • 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!
