Now you are ready to discover more ways to make meals that are both healthful and delicious. And, you are ready to experience first-hand the convenience and versatility of this compact portable electric cooking appliance.

Nesco Roaster Ovens have a long tradition in family home cooking, starting in the 1930s. Yet, very few cooking appliances can demonstrate that they are as up-to-date and useful today as they were in the past. Nesco Roaster Ovens have truly kept pace with cooking styles, preferences, occasions and family sizes.

In a short time, you will see the many ways to use your Roaster Oven. Its portability makes it a moveable main cooking appliance at some times, and a valued supplementary appliance at other times. Use it a home on your countertop in your kitchen (no more kitchen heat!) or in a covered patio, basement or garage or away from home in a cabin, RV or boat. Where you use your Roaster Oven, you can prepare a wide range of favorite foods in different ways - baked, slow-coked, roasted, steamed or poached. And serve your foods buffet style or at table-side, right in the Roaster Oven. Moist, good-tasting foods are yours because of Nesco's exclusive "Circle of Heat" construction. You'll taste the difference the first time you use your Roaster Oven. So, start cooking with Nesco. Explore all the ways to get the most out of this special home cooking appliance.

1. Unpack your Nesco Roaster Oven completely and remove all packaging material and information labels. Place the Roaster Oven in a well ventilated area on a heat resistant surface. Set the control dial to its minimum setting. Plug the cord into a 120 volt AC outlet. Return control to maximum setting (450-degrees F). Operate the Roaster Oven empty (without the cookwell or cover) for approximately 60 minutes, or until any odor or smoking disappears. Some smoke and odor are a normal part of "curing" the element and will not reoccur in cooking use. When curing is completed, turn the temperature control to its lowest setting, unplug the unit from the electrical outlet and allow to cool.
2. Wash the cover, cookwell and rack in warm sudsy water, then rinse and dry. Refer to complete cleaning instructions in manual.
3. Non-stick cookwell: When 'curing' your Roaster Oven with a non-stick cookwell, we recommend that it be operated with cover and cookwell. Do this in a covered outside area or other well-ventilated area. After curing and cleaning, and before cooking in your non-stick cookwell for the first time, lightly coat the interior of the cookwell with vegetable oil.

Preheat roaster oven for 20 minutes.
Roasting meat in your Nesco Roaster Oven keeps it moist and tender.
For additional browning, you can add 1 tbsp. browning sauce to oil and brush over skin before roasting.
To sear meat, preheat Roaster Oven at 450-degrees F. Add margarine. Cover, then sear meat for 10 to 15 minutes per side until lightly browned. Stir ground meat once. Time will vary depending on the quantity of meat. Alternative browning method for self-basting turkeys, preheat at 400-degrees F for 20 minutes. Roast bird for 1 hour at 400-degrees F. Reduce heat to 350-degrees using included time chart, 13-18 minutes per pound. During last hour of roasting increase temperature to 400-degrees and remove all excess juices in bottom of cookwell.


Perfect for small households and occasions when a kitchen's oven space isn't sufficient, this portable, 750-watt roaster-oven roasts, cooks, bakes, steams, and slow-cooks any food imaginable at 200 to 450 degrees F. It's big enough for roasting a large chicken, cooking 6 quarts of chili, baking a loaf of bread, steaming vegetables or a couple of lobsters, and slow-cooking a beef stew. Measuring 16-1/2 inches long, 12 inches wide, and 10 inches high overall, the roaster has a removable nonstick cooking pan that is 12 inches long, 8-1/2 inches wide, and 4-3/4 inches deep. An additional 2 to 3 inches of depth is provided by a domed, vented lid. Included is a chrome roasting rack with handles that also lifts casserole dishes and baking pans and sheets off the bottom. A wraparound heating element ensures even, moist heat. A cooking-time guide and recipes accompany the roaster, which carries a one-year warranty against defects and is attractive enough to take to the table for serving. --Fred Brack

This is a convenient,inexpensive, high quality, easy to clean up cooking unit with a great instruction and recipe book included. More recipes are on the NESCO website as well.
I do not know how to cook. If it weren't for my wife, I would have starved by now. When my son was small, and my wife was sick, he would beg her to get better so he wouldn't have to eat my cooking, which he likened to rubber chicken.
But a few years ago, my wife's aunt gave us a 6 Quart NESCO COOKWELL roaster and voila! I can cook meals that even my son would enjoy.
This is probably the gift for anyone living on their own for the first time, like a college student, since it is extremely easy to prepare and cook healthful, delicious meals EVERY TIME.
If you follow instructions in the enclosed recipe booklet, you can't make a bad meal! My favorite is the lemon pepper chicken with linguine.
The best part is that the COOKWELL roaster pan insert is removable, is used to serve the food and cleans up really easily. The electrical heating part never sees soap and water, since it only serves to surround the cookwell roasting pan insert with a "circle of heat".
This is not a crock pot, although you can set it up as such. Cooking times are usually 45 minutes to an hour and around 350 degrees.
EVERY student going away to college should have one of these. They are easily stored, cleaned and provide inexpensive and healthy meals. And even a lousy cook like myself becomes a gormet chef. You can use the recipes and instructions provided in the booklet that comes with the cookwell or if you are more experienced, like my wife, anything is possible. THIS IS A WINNER!

NESCO products have been heavily marketed on the shopping channel, QVC. I bought my first NESCO roaster, a 4-quart model, over 10 years ago. I have since given that one away but now own a 5, 6, 12, and 18-quart roaster oven. I have given them as gifts and every person receiving a roaster has absolutely loved it.
The 6-quart model is NESCO's most popular sized roaster oven. You can easily prepare a meal for a family of four. But what sets it apart is its versatility. You can cook from 150 to 400 degrees which separates it from a traditional slow cooker. You can bake, steam, poach, roast and slow cook. The heating element, known as the 'Circle of Heat' extends around the sides of the unit so there will be no burnt food at the bottom of the roaster.
What can you cook in it? The real answer is: What can't you cook in it? You are only limited by the size of the unit. For meats such as pork, poultry and beef, you will be rewarded with the most moist servings that you have ever experienced. Soups, stews and casseroles turn out wonderfully in the NESCO. One of my favorite dishes is Swiss steak as the NESCO tenderizes lean cuts of beef such as round steak and the 'circle of heat' blends the flavors perfectly.
NESCO also offers several accessories on their nesco.com website. I purchased a lid with a fan and that converts your unit into a convection cooker. There is also an expanded cookbook for the unit and a cookbook that discusses how to use the 6-quart as a convection oven (you'll need the Roast-Aire lid).
In summary, this is one of those appliances that I consider to be a 'Must Buy'. It is a mini oven and for busy families or just busy people. You will wonder how you ever got along without it!!!

By A Customer on February 24, 2003
I've only used my roaster once, but the chicken I made in it came out excellent! When I think roasted chicken I think of it dry but this was SO juicy and good. I have yet to try other recipes in it, but so far it's great just for roasting.
The only issue I had with it was "seasoning" it. You have to plug it in and let it heat up for about an hour. Try 3... and in a VERY ventilated garage because the smell that came from this device was horrible! I was told that's normal and that it goes away, which it did. It's just not something you want to do in a smaller, non ventilated area.
I gave it 4 stars simply because of the "seasoning" process. But otherwise, it's a great product and I look forward to using it a lot more.

I bought this roaster a few years back from a home shopping network, and I can say this is the best thing I have ever bought...

Nesco makes one that has a silver outside, and is cheaper then this one, But "Don't" buy that one.

It's made in china or something, and its awful, no comparison.

This one is American made and what a differents...

The lid on the other one's never fit right, I returned three of them and never got one that was right, just plain cheap..What you pay for is what you get.

After having this, you will never use your slow cooker again, what for?

This one can be a slow cooker, or like a regular oven.

I have made chicken breast's, soups, stews, roasts, you name it , you can make it in here...

Everything I have made in this roaster has been moist and juicy.

When I make stews or soups I like those thick, so I take off the lid for about one hour when the food is cooked.

I do have an 8qt, 18qt, and 20qt...

I use the big ones for turkeys...But this and the 8qt is used the most.

When I'm making something in this, I can leave the house and not worry I will burn it down lol...Just turn it a bit lower..

I just read where someone here said you can buy a lid that makes this a convection oven! This I have to check out, but I do have a convection oven, and convections toaster oven and truthful can't find too much differents, so if you have the confection lid to this, what differents does it make?...

Also there is a new type of larger roaster for turkeys that has sometype of heating element in the lid, so your turkey skin will brown. that will not happen with this one, but you can't fit a turkey in here anyway!
