The time for outdoor cooking may be slipping away, but with Thanksgiving right around the corner there’s certainly one compelling reason, if you don’t already have thousands, for keeping a deep fryer waiting in the wings.

Rather than take up more precious counter space, the Timber Ridge Backyard Deep Fryer ($700) can provide you with golden brown deliciousness anytime you want on a massive scale, as long as you don’t mind cooking outside. Thanks to push-button electric ignition, it’s dead simple to use and there’s no need to have fire on hand. The company’s signature Clean Flow oil-filtration system also lets you reuse its restaurant grade 9 gallon cooking oil reservoir up to 50 times over, while a precision temp controls ensure your food fries perfectly. To help you jump into cardiac arrest mode from the start, the unit includes three professional-grade frying baskets: one for turkey (up to 25 lbs) and other poultry, and two smaller baskets for other foods. Not into the grease? It can also be used as a large scale boiler for you healthy types. Best of all, this bad boy’s made in the U.S.A.
