This is a perfect fryer for large items. Takes a while to get to temp but it's heating a lot of oil. Controls or actually could be a bit more clear on that they mean, but read the instructions and you can figure it out.
best product that I've purchased, for cooking turkeys , we did two 18 lbs. turkeys about 64 min ea. an easy to clean up . no open flame to worry about , do suggest to cook out in open air or your house will smell like fried turkey . I did mine in the garage..
