I have never seen anything like it on this side of the pond. I googled and the results were all for the UK.

Maybe we don't get those because we use 110 Volt electricity? If we have an electric stove here, it either has to be installed by an electrician or there is a special 220 volt outlet for it. I've got one of those 220 volt outlets for my dryer too.

To me, it looks like a fancy toaster oven with a hot plate on top--I so want one!!! Actually, the installation of the wiring has to be inspected by an electrician, I believe, but one can do one's own wiring (I have had that done and had it inspected). Some ranges are hardwired (no plug--my friend's mom's stove was like that), others have that gigantic plug. I think most homes in NA are wired to include a 220 volt range.

Thanks for my laugh for the day. I have visions of her walking into the salesroom and pulling out a raw turkey. Bring along a roaster pan also.

Friends of mine in CT got their first free-range organic turkey one year--it was close to 40 lb. (As my friend described it, it looked as if they had stuffed a toddler in the fridge). Their roaster pan was not big enough. They put the turkey in a cooler, went to a local store and brought the roaster pan in which they were interested out to the parking lot to see if the turkey fit. Another friend had her husband cut the 48 lb free-range turkey into quarters using the band saw so she could get parts of it in her roaster. It happens.Good thing they both have restaurant/industrial ovens! I can barely fit a 22 lb turkey in my oven and roaster pan.

Wow! I've neither seen no heard of turkeys that big. The ones I've cooked were in the 12#-20# range. I wouldn't want to meet up in the wild with a mad 40# turkey!

I do think that 40 pounds of Wild Turkey could cause all manner of trouble.

These weren't wild turkeys--these were free-range, organic turkeys. The problem was that the growers just kept feeding the turkeys and the people who ordered them didn't limit the size--so they got these huge turkeys. I used to order free-range, organic turkeys but specified the lb size. The last one I got was 22 lb. That was for Easter. It barely fit in my biggest roaster--it was very good. At Thanksgiving time, I could get a 15-17 lb turkey, Christmas a 17-20 lb turkey, by Easter, the smallest turkey I could get was 22 lb with parts missing (drumsticks). This for 2 people. I quit getting my turkeys from this source after that--although, best turkey I've ever eaten.

New rule:

Never buy a turkey that is big enough to kick the stuffing out of you. :)
