Can you soak heating element on a butterball electric turkey fryer?

Most heating elements are indeed submerged in oil and for that reason I would not think it would affect your unit, however I do not normally work on home model products. I am a commercial restaurant equipment dealer, working on commercial products only. Trying it out would tell with within a few minutes whether it's going to work or not? Any other questions, I would find the 800 number or website for that company and ask them directly. Sorry I couldn't be more help to you, but I just don't know that much about home model stuff.

Hi, W/D here.

Cooking time can vary, due to the moisture content of the potatoes that are being cooked. A good rule of thumb is to cook them until they begin to float, then to your preference of golden brown.
Hope this is what you need.
Best regards, --W/D--

G.e.deep fryer g.e.168997

Spray it really well with Oven Cleaner-let it sit outside, if you can for as long as possible-a day would be great. then wipe it down with a damp sponge.

Replacment cords

On 11/17/07 I posted my problem with this fryer. I did not get a solution so today I called the customer service number 1-877-207-0923 and Virginia (customer service rep) suggested that I order a new cord ($5.95 plus shipping of $5.95). I should receive it in 7-10 days by UPS ground shipping. My model # is #168997 cord # PL1215. I hope this helps.
