The NESCO 18-quart. Roaster Oven is your portable, "go anywhere" second oven?capable of doing everything a traditional oven does, except broil. For many, it's the primary kitchen oven. For others, a second oven for the family room, porch, or cabin. It's portable, so you can take it along for family outings. It is ideal for large meals and entertaining in the home. Roast a whole turkey, up to 22 pounds, pot roast, pork roast, ham, or whole chickens. Bake cookies, cakes, pies, quiche, and even whole meals. Cook soups, stews, lasagna, and hot dishes. Make enough chili for the whole gang. Steam/poach vegetables, seafood, and poultry. Slow cooks less tender cuts of meat, too. This roaster contains differentiating features such as an extra-high domed, self-basting cover to retain moisture, and a "Circle of Heat" heating element that cooks from the side for moist, even cooking. The removable cookwell makes clean-up a snap. Automatic temperature control maintains even cooking temperature. Stainless steel roaster with porcelain cookwell and stainless steel cover.
I was replacing a very old roaster that finally went out after many years. My new Nesco roaster cooked a little hotter so I need to turn it down just a bit next time. It's so convenient to cook the turkey in a roaster to keep the oven available for the casseroles and breads. I followed the directions to the letter regarding 'smoking out' the new roaster and prepping the cooking well - very important. The cooking well had a 'carbon' residue after using that was difficult to clean off. Usually stainless steel is easier to clean up. Other than that I highly recommend.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Brushed Stainless is Brushed Stainless
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Lighter weight than the old roaster I was replacing. Cooking well on this one is harder to clean.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very
This 18 quart Nesco made the best turkey we have ever tasted, steamed all the way through and so tender that a knife was hardly necessary to carve off the drumsticks, thighs and wings.The cleanup was incredibly easy, although a bit of steel wool was required to thoroughly clean the stainless steel roasting pan.
My only suggestion for improvement is for Nesco to add a small window on the top of the cover so that one could view the cooking progress without having to remove the cover. The older, original Nesco roasters incorporated such a window.
I need to return this oven. With very little use, there are burn marks on the inside near where the cord is attached and temperature is not even. The design itself looks good, and I do like the stainless steel, but the engineering isn't adequate.
I have moved all over the USA and always wanted two ovens in my kitchen. Now, I don't need to look for a double oven anymore, because I have purchased this Nesco Oven. I have always wanted to buy a Nesco but now I have. I'm happy!!!
