#1.King Kooker Crawfish Seafood Boiler
If you are interested in the best crawfish cooker, we gotta recommend something by the King Kooker. In our opinion, this brand has it all down and this boiler is the best bang for the buck. Unless you are cooking for a large restaurant, we think that the King Kooker is more than enough for all of your needs. It features a 70 quart aluminum pot with hinged lid and basket.
Also, you get a heavy duty and incredibly durable 192,000 BTU jet burner, which is where most of the magic happens. And as a cookie on top, you also get a cooking thermometer. In general, everything works better than we expected and it is great at cooking lots of crawfish in a big batch for you and your friends. It will also last a lifetime if you take care of it.
#2.Bayou Classic Seafood Boiler
Next, we have the Bayou Classic Seafood Boiler, which is the best crawfish cooker if you want to make a medium to large sized batch. This is a 70 quart sized boiler but you can also get the 160 quart size. We really like that the entire unit is built like a tank. In particular, this boiler and cooker has sturdy steel frames and stainless steel burners. No corners were cut in making this.
We also really like the stainless steel drain spigot, which does a really good job in making sure your outdoor area is pretty free from various oils and liquids that could splash around the area. In terms of performance, you have a 30-PSI high pressure regulator that can supply up to a crazy heating power of 200,000 BTUs. This should give you a great boil every time.
#3.Metal Fusion 5012 Outdoor Cooker
Another wise choice when it comes to the best crawfish cooker is the Metal Fusion 5012 Outdoor Cooker by King Kooker. This is a budget friendly and extremely portable option when it comes to crawfish cookers. In terms of specs, you have a 12 inch 54,000 BTU flat top cooker with a 50 quart pot capacity. With these pot size, it is enough to boil crawfish for about 15 people per batch.
Another thing to keep in mind is that the 54,000 BTU burner will take a good 30 minutes or so to get the water boiling so just keep that in mind. Also, the pot is aluminum, so it is not as durable as steel. Overall, this is a great crawfish cooker that more than gets the job done from your family and a small group of friends. It is easy to assemble and it is a value buy, although it is made of cheap materials.
#4.Bayou Classic KDS-160 Stainless 62qt Boiler
We also recommend the Bayou Classic KDS-160 when it comes to mini sized budget friendly crawfish cookers and boilers. We consider this an upgrade from the King Kooker in terms of durability. So first and foremost, everything is made of stainless steel and is clearly a few grades above the materials used in cheaper crawfish boilers like the King Kooker. The tradeoff is that it also makes it heavier.
There is a 10 PSI regulator that helps provide 58,000 BTUs of power. This translates to a shorter water warm up time than the King Kooker which does make a difference to some people. All in all, this is really a good crawfish cooker if you want a premium boiler for a smal group of people. In one batch you can make enough for around 20 people.
#5.R & V Works Crawfish Boiler
Lastly, we recommend the R&V Works Crawfish Boiler if you are want something that is incredibly efficient at cooking crawfish to perfection. It is also built to make your life much easier. We like it because it basically cooks a full bag of crawfish in one shot and with all the trimming in short order. There is also a hinged tilting basket which allows you to easily dump the crawfish.
This basically means that while the boiling pot is draining, you don’t have to lift the heavy inner basket anymore. So basically, we think this is a game changer and at least makes cooking safer and more enjoyable. This crawfish cooker can also make all kinds of seafood and veggies and has a very solid and ruigged construction. It has solid rubber wheels and a front axle with castors for incredible portability.
