Default Electric Turkey Fryer?

I was digging through a storage room and found a 28 quart electric turkey fryer I received as a gift several years ago. The light bulb went off. Would this work for all-grain batches? I was going to fill with water and see how accurate the digital thermometer was in regulating temperature. Wondering how much electric I'll use considering it's 120V.

I have never even heard of an electric turkey fryer so that's cool. Let us know how it turns out.

Here it is:

Haven't opened the box, but it appears it has a larger internal element. Wondering if that would screw this idea up.

I did a quick search (you should too!) and found some threads on it. Apparently it will work after a fashion, but it's hard to keep a rolling boil with the lid off. The steam carries away too much heat. If you try it, post your results please.
