The following tips are provided by the City of Orlando.
Here are some tips to keep in mind before, during and after you make that yummy holiday meal:
- Use your turkey fryer only outdoors on a level surface away from kids, pets and flammable objects.
- A frozen turkey will cause hot oil to splatter – always defrost it first.
- Determine the correct amount of oil needed by first placing the turkey in the pot with water.
- Recycle the used cooking oil! Once cooled down, pour the grease into a shatterproof container and drop it off at any designated City of Orlando drop-off location.
