18 Qt Roaster, Porcelain Cookwell - Ivory Body

4818-14 18 Qt Roaster Oven
Ideal for Large Meals

Since 1932 the Nesco brand name has been synonymous with Roaster Ovens. With a Nesco Roaster Oven you can roast, bake, cook, steam, slow cook and serve. Other than broiling, the Nesco Roaster Oven can do anything a normal oven can do but better and with less energy usage and less heat generated in the kitchen. The Roaster Oven is portable so you can make great tasting meals wherever you go. The exclusive "Circle of Heat" heating element wraps around for moist, even cooking. The automatic temperature control maintains even cooking temperatures from 200 degrees to 450 degrees. Removable steel rack has easy lift out handles for safe, easy insertion and removal of hot foods.

This is the Nesco Roaster that everyone remembers. The one that grandma had at home to cook the turkey at Thanksgiving. It's also one of the most versatile cooking appliances available. 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.

Curing your Roaster before Use

Before Using the Roaster


Remove Lid (cover), Rack, and Cookwell, (from heatwell) wash them and set aside.

Place Roaster Oven (Heatwell only) in a well-ventilated area. Make sure temperature knob is set at the lowest possible setting/off.

Plug in Heatwell cord to a 120 volt AC outlet. Turn temperature knob to maximum setting and "cure" Roaster Oven empty for 60 minutes (or longer) until any odor or wisps of smoke disappear. Some smoke and odor are a normal part of "curing" the element and will not reoccur in cooking use. When curing is completed, turn temperature control to lowest setting/off, unplug unit from outlet and allow cooling. After your unit has cooled, put Cookwell, Lid, and Rack back in and it is ready to use.

Do not cook food without Cookwell in place.

I have a Nesco Roaster that I purchased at least 12 years ago. I loved it!! It was great for turkeys, ribs, stew, beans, anything!! The only reason I was replacing it was because the Teflon coating was starting to come off and the roaster was getting "hot spots". The lid had seen better days, and... well, it was just tired! The roaster I ordered was the same as my old one so I expected many years of use and enjoyment. I was soooo wrong! I received the roaster and it was very cheaply made. The lid was thinner and the metal was ripply. After two hours of "airing" it out, the smell pretty much was gone but still noticeable. I figured, oh well, nothing is made as well as it used to be made and proceeded to wash the roaster so I could use it for dinner. I didn't want to use it the first time for Thanksgiving and have any surprises! It's a good thing!! I made Teriyaki chicken tenders with vegetables. EVERYTHING stuck to the sides, to the point that it took major scrubbing to get it off, even after soaking over night. I was a bit surprised but figured I would have to live with it. The deal breaker occurred when I was cooking the chicken and tried to remove the lid. It wouldn't budge. When I finally pried the lid off, the paint from the lid had melted onto the roaster, fusing the two together. The burning paint stunk to high Heaven and is permanently on the edge of the roaster. Though the roaster pan and the lid seem to have bonded, the same is not true for me. It's going back! Paint that melts when heated can't be safe. So disappointing and so sad!! :(

If you read the instruction manual you will learn to "burn in" this oven OUTSIDE" before you cook in it. It should be turned on high for one hour and allowed to burn off the protective oil used in manufacture. It will SMOKE. After that ...NO Problems. Everything went just as described in the manual.
The power cord for any appliance with heating elements is always short for safety reasons. I placed the oven on a make-do table under my covered patio and used the same power extension cord I use for my table saw, grinders and other heavy duty power tools. After one hour with this oven on constant max power the molded plug and wire became soft and hot to the touch. I say this only because some people will try to use a standard household extension cord and could possibly start a fire. I have only two other minor issues. 1) The cooking well came with a paper information sheet glued to the bottom. I could not scrub the glue off. I finally used some industrial solvent to remove the glue and then had to wash the whole thing again. The cook well will not fit my sink. 2) This oven is big...I mean BIG. I do have a problem finding space near a plug to use it in my "normal" sized kitchen. And I have not solved the storage issue...yet. All in all...I would buy it again. It does a job nothing else will do.

Sidebar: One of the selling points is that you are baking in a much smaller space than when heating your whole oven and therefore you are using less power and saving money. I am not an electrical engineer, but I am not so sure about that. You are using 120 volt power, not 220 volts and therefore drawing twice the amperage.

Bought this roaster after reviewing others online. This roaster did everything it was supposed to do. Cooked our 20 pound turkey perfectly. Turkey was moist and juicy. Highly recommend this roaster. Bought it at Sears because it was $20.00 cheaper than online here.

We love the Nesco! We also have a similar Hamilton Beach roaster oven, but some of our family gatherings require more than one LOL. Both models are comparable, both require a burn-in period for use and both come with a stainless steel wire rack- useful for pulling a hot roasted turkey out for carving. Both allow us to use a 3 set buffet server (sold separately) to steam foods or keep warm for serving. We love the Nesco for roasting a turkey or a couple chickens- juicy and tender! We also use the Nesco to make family gathering sized portions of pastas, spaghetti, etc. We have not yet baked in the Nesco but have heard nothing but good results.

Why the Nesco? Nesco is the "go to" for roaster ovens. Nesco initially was the popular brand, roaster ovens is what they have specialized in and Nesco has the experience and reputation to stand behind their products - over 50 years.

Key points:
* BURN IN OUTSIDE- all new roaster ovens require a burn in period, outside, so the units can off-gas properly. Fail to do this and your foods will have an odd smell / taste the first few uses.
* Buy the buffet server during the holidays when box stores sell them cheap. It was nice to have on hand when we needed it and difficult to locate in box stores in the off-season.

Okay, I've only had it for about four days, but I have already used it three times! Since I have such a large family I was going to invest in an additional 7 quart crock pot until someone recommended this item to me. They saved me!!! Not only was this less expensive than two 7 quart crock pots, but it works better, has more options, is more convenient, and it's obviously more quarts. I have a really large family, as I stated before, and I like to not cook just the meal for the evening, but I want leftovers so it means less cooking on another day. Usually when I make chicken soup I use two of those large roasters that are like black camping gear. I was able to fit more into this than I could usually fit into two of those pans. To give you an idea of size for my usual pans that I use, I usually cook two turkeys on Thanksgiving each of them has to be over 22lbs in order to feed the masses, and these would be the pans I cook them in. Now I could probably get a 22lb bird in this roaster but not two. However I did fit an entire package of chicken from Costco (10lb bag of boneless skinless thighs), an entire package of vegetables from Costco (5.5lbs), a 2lb bag of rice, and a crap load of water. It turned out wonderful! I did make sure to "cure" the roaster before using it and yes, it absolutely did stink, YUCK. But it didn't smoke very much as it warned it may. It advises you to cure it for one hour OR UNTIL THE SMELL AND/OR SMOKE GOES AWAY. It took me about an hour and a half for the smell to stop emitting from the roaster. But I'm glad I did it cuz I wouldn't want that smell near my food lol. I will be uploading a picture of my roaster, for reference I have placed what was closest to me that could be considered "universal size" onto the roaster so you can get an idea of the massive size of this thing. It really is quite large. This purchase was worth every penny I paid for it and I love it so much I am considering buying more of them as gifts for my mom and sisters.
