This scary looking contraption is a battery operated pump designed for emptying the used oil from a turkey fryer. I used it for the first time this year after cooking up our deep fried turkey.
It’s got a little filter on the intake that strains out the muck, allowing you to reuse the oil. All in all, the pumps works pretty well. However, it’s kind of slow and it leaves about 2 inches in the bottom of the cooking pot, so I’m not sure its worth the hassle. A stainless funnel works just as well I think, especially if you end up usinga a funnel to get that last bit of oil anyhow.
