Roaster Oven ? + Chat
Please place your roaster oven questions and chat here. Just delete what is in the subject line and put in your subject. Then fill in the message section and submit. I think it will make it easier for everyone to see at a glance what the comment or question concerns. Thank you.
I just ordered a 6 quart Nesco. I have a 18 quart one, but find it too big for most items. I mainly wanted to use it to free up my oven, and to use in the summer when it is too hot. Can you really bake chicken etc in a roaster? or breads and muffins? I know turkey doesn't brown, but have heard it is good for most other items. I am a big fan of crockpots also, and hope this just isn't another "crockpot" kind of thing I just ordered???

This is for soaplady
You can make just about anything in these roaster ovens. I have not seen a smaller one but think I would like it as it is just my husband and myself here these days. Did you order your smaller on online or was it elsewhere? Also, about the browning of turkeys or chickens cooked in a roaster oven. We have used the roaster ovens for baking turkeys in our family for a while now. It is great to have the oven freed up for all the other things you make on special days. My sister and my daughter-in-law have made them in the roaster oven and I really didn't notice the turkey not being browned. They looked golden to me and they didn't do anything other than bake it. They also do cook faster than the regular oven too, as Whispering Pass has written. If you want the skin darker you can brush it with a mixture of half to half, a Kitchen Bouquet or Gravy Master type seasoning/browning liquid, available in your grocery store where the gravies are. Have a great day, Linda
