    Has anyone here ever used an electric roaster?

    Thu Nov 06, 2008 4:41 pm Groupie
    I have a brand new roaster that I have never used. I have had it for 2 years still in the box it came in. I am thinking that it would be great to use it to roast my TG turkey in it to free up my oven for all the other dishes.

    What is the difference, if any, between oven roasted turkey and turkey roasted in an electric roaster?

    I am hesitant... never used it... holiday kitchen disasters are not allowed!!!!

    I love mine for turkey, it cooks faster, and is more moist than oven cooking it. Mainly because it bastes it's self. The only "problem" you might have is that it doesn't brown the skin. Which to me isn't a problem we don't carve our turkey at the table and most of us don't eat the skin anyways.

    I have 2 electric roasters, 12qt. and 18qt. They cook perfectly. I use at least one to cook my turkey, depending on the size of the turkey.

    Thanks so much for your input. I have heard so many great things about using this method. I am going to do a trial run tonight using a big chicken and see what happens so I know first hand what to expect.

    Thanks again. It is greatly appreciated.

    And when you're done with the turkey, you can use it to roast chickens or use it as a food warmer for different dishes.

    I have the Hamilton 18qt roaster oven.It's one of the best kitchen items I've bought.The foods that come out of it looks and taste as though I've cooked them all day.When I actually haven't. Soups,stews,chili's,sauces,roasts,whole chickens cut in half take less time to cook in a roaster then they would on a stove top or oven.Chicken (whole) then cut in half can be browned and made to be crispy.Baste olive oil on the skin,then brown.Place the chicken on the rack to finish cooking.Should you need a warmer place oven safe pans inside,again using that rack.I cook in large quantities (Teenage Boys) It's been a tremendous help.The kids love chicken and dumplings made in that

    I've actually used it a few weeks ago as a hot water bath for some canned salsa's.Worked like a charm icon_smile.gif Perfectly sealed jars.

    I own two 18 qt. electric roasters. I utilize them the most during canning season to simmer big batches of salsa and spaghetti sauce prior to canning. I often have them both going at once. They are also great for simmering big batches of chili or sloppy joes for big get togethers. Also useful for that big batch of party mix. I have also used it for roasting a prime rib. A lot easier to clean than my oven!
