I wonder if anybody used electric turkey fryer? The one like that: http://www.amazon.com/Masterbuilt-El.../dp/B000ARM9I4
Looks like a winner to me. 29 q. SS, drain valve, temperature control for around $100. You can do full boil and even mashing in it. Also huge advantage that you don't need to be outside to brew. Any drawbacks? Am I missing something?

Have you found it somewhere else? It says that it is currently unnavailable at the Amazon site.

I think for beer it would be good, if the electricity usage was not crazy. I don't think I would feel comfortable frying a turkey in my house, flame or not.

Sure, it's available on eBay for ~$80. I agree about fying turkey, but boiling wort does not sound that bad to me.

Looks like it runs on one standard outlet & that's a 15 amp connecter, so for a 2-3 hour brewing session, we are talking maybe 5 kw-hr. Add a very big grain bag & it would be prime for mini-mashes!
...
Like I need more equipment.
