They suggested the following, which works perfectly even without using the infuser: Place roaster in a roasting pan to catch the drippings. Make some slits in the skin, then oil, season and bake bird at 325 until it reaches a temp of 140 deg in the breast meat. Take it out for a few minutes, raise the temp to 500 deg, and add a cup and a half of water to the drippings in the bottom of the pan. This keeps them from burning and smoking in the hotter oven. Next, cook for maybe 20 min more until you hit an internal temp or 160. This gets the outside super crispy. You then glaze that sucker with your favorite glaze, bake just another five minutes, then take it out and let it cool a bit. You can then use a separator to defat the watered down drippings and use it to make a quick gravy if you desire while the bird stands for a few minutes before slicing. It really does make the most evenly crispy roasted chicken I've ever seen without using a rotisserie.
They do take longer to cook this way, but the slower cooking is also what keeps the flavor there. I use prepared chicken flavorings, but have also used just lemons, salt and pepper.
Clean-up is easy and so is storage. I now try to give one of these away as gifts every chance I get, but unfortunately have had trouble finding them. I hope this is just temporary because this simple design makes such an easy,delicious roasted chicken that it would be a shame if they were no longer manufactured. I highly recommend this vertical roaster to anyone who likes flavorful chicken.
If you like crispy skin, you will love this product since all of the skin is exposed. No more soggy skin where the bird rests against the pan. The meat still stays nice and juicy.
Note: the Amazon review of this product ("If your last experiment with a vertical roaster...") does not appear to refer to this roaster. This roaster can not be used as a typical roasting pan (or rather, not very well), nor could you roast more than one bird. The photograph is correct.
I decided to go ahead and MAKE it work. So, after grabbing my needle nose pliers, screwdriver, screw and a HAMMER, an hour later, I finally got it where it would work.
I cooked a four-pounder for almost two hours at 350 degrees. The chicken was crisp on the outside, moist on the inside and delicious!
One observation is that the drip tray was up to the brim with drippings after cooking a four pound chicken. I had placed the roaster in a pan which caught the juices when they spilled as I lifted it out of the oven. It makes me think that the drip tray was designed without the infuser in mind. The infuser takes up cubic capacity in the drip tray.
If you like skinless chicken, the skin just pulls off in large sheets, or you can use an electric knife to slice the breast with the skin on.
All in all, I think this will be a valuable cooking tool (now that I have it assembled), and I look forward to experimenting with different seasonings in the infuser, I also want to try it on the BBQ grill when the weather gets better. I just got really mad when the darn thing would not fit together out of the box, hence the lower rating.

Works as advertised. 4 stars because the base should be larger. It gets full of liquid and then makes it as hard to work with as a beer can.Published 5 days ago by John Ostrye
The quality is great. The place that can be improved is that the plate is too small and the height is not enough. It is too short for a duck of about 5 pounds.Published 28 days ago by Amazon Customer

Good gadget for the grill. Just make sure you put it over heat so the liquid can get hot enough to do its thing.Published 4 months ago by Thomas J. Wands
