If you’re like InventHelp’s Invention Girl, you’ll be running around like a, well, turkey with your head cut off preparing for Thanksgiving Day. I’m not saying I don’t love a zillion trips to the grocery store followed by waking at the crack of dawn to start on the Big Meal. But, if there are some inventions that can make better use of my precious time, I’m game!

What’s better than enjoying an oven-roasted turkey on Thanksgiving Day? Cooking it in half the time! While turkey fryers make cooking a bird fast, there are enough disaster videos on YouTube of fires and other mishaps to steer this clumsy InventHelp employee in another direction.

The Char-Broil Big Easy Oil-less Turkey Fryer can get a 14-pound bird ready to eat in less than two hours using infrared rays, and without the dangers of deep fryers. Composed of stainless steel, the device features a propane burner that radiates thermal energy at infrared wavelengths to allow for even cooking. The interior temperature of the Big Easy can reach scorching 500-degrees Fahrenheit, creating crispy, golden turkey skin that holds in all the juices.

Stuffing lovers should cook a batch separately; it’s not recommended for use in the cooker. However, don’t be shy with the marinades and rubs – they work wonders for the bird in the Big Easy. The invention retails for $160. Check out charbroil.com for ordering information.

Now all we need is an invention to prevent tryptophan-induced Thanksgiving naps and we’ll be all set!
