I was just in Walmart. They had a turkey fryer with a sign that said $46, which is a good price. Every place else is at least $65. So I picked one up and at the cash register, it rang up as $34. The burner looks like it is poorly finished. So I hope this thing works. It has an excellent sturdy stand to hold the pot, so I'm hoping it will be good for scalding. Also, I am looking forward to trying a deep fried duck.
