Interesting, but nothing about power requirements, even in the manual. "May blow breaker"?

If the thermostat could be set low enough, it would make a great mash tun.

I looked into one of these a while back, and I was very reluctant to pick one up. The electric unit sits in direct contact with your wort inside the fryer, this could lead to some wicked scorching/carmelization of the portions of the wort that come into contact with the unit.

Other than that, there aren't too many drawbacks I could foresee
