Watch the video for some dramatic evidence.
Among the tips:
&bull: ALWAYS USE A FRYER OUTDOORS. Keep the fryer away from flammable materials.
&bull: PLACE THE FRYER ON A LEVEL, STABEL SURFACE. If a fryer can tip or be knocked over by accident, it can cause a catastrophe.
&bull: ALWAYS THAW THE TURKEY FIRST! Frozen turkeys may explode when dropped into hot oil.
&bull: NEVER OVER-FILL THE FRYER WITH OIL! If the oil overflows when the turkey is placed in the fryer, it will burst into flame.
&bull: ALWAYS WEAR GOGGLES AND GLOVES. Protect yourself from splashing oil.
&bull: KEEP CHILDREN AWAY FROM THE FRYER! Never leave a fryer unattended, for safety's sake!
