I cook for a lot a large family so this is wonderful! I got the 3 set inserts, which work great for all kinds of events, even when it's just the 3 of us. Wish I had found it earlier! Great for stews as well.

Customer reviews & ratings
Superb roaster oven
This oven does more thing than I had ever imagined. It not only bakes, it steams,roasts,cooks and slow cooks. It cleans up very easily. I cooked a 16.8lb stuffed turkey the first time using it, it browned so great, the skin was crispy, and I had never checked it for 4hrs. I didn't need to baste,like in a regular oven. It cames out nice and juicy. I would recommend this to eveyone. I can't wait for the holidays,I will be baking breads in my roaster oven, it will bake 2-3 at a time.
I was expecting to see a little electric oven roaster, but to my surprise, it was huge. I'm extremely happy with my new roaster oven. I also bought the buffet to go with it. It works really well. Thank you.
Wish I had Bought this years ago!
This roaster worked great. The turkey was tender and juicy. I used the recipe that came with it which called for browning sauce to be mixed with butter and seasonings and then brushed on. It yielded a beautiful golden brown skin. The cookwell cleans easily in the sink and the body is stainless steel that you just wipe off. Great product.
This is a very nice roaster for the price! Looks very nice! Works great! I do wish the cook well had a non-stick coating, but with the roaster liners, the clean up is wuick & easy
This was EXACTLY what I wanted!! Yes, I could probably gotten it cheaper, or a cheaper version at my local store, but they decided not to carry them this year! I was glad to be able to get it for my families Thanksgiving feast! It doesn't heat up the house, and you can set it, and basically forget it!
This is an attractive oven that performs very well. We have used it to bake bread and pies. The initial conditioning is not optional and SHOULD be performed outdoors due to the smoke that is released from the heating coils. I wish that it included an external lid support hook to enable easier access to the hot oven. We use the oven in our dining room, which is not convenient because the only heatproof surfaces on which to place a hot lid are in the kitchen.
Nesco products a good buy
I have purchased several Nesco products in the past and am very pleased with them. This 18-quart roaster oven however, is a disappointment. The quality is sub standard. The cooking well is all wrinkled on the lip that rests on the roaster. If we didn't need it for our Thanksgiving dinner, I would have returned it to the store. I would hope that this review is shared with Nesco. I am sure that they don't like negative reviews and have inferior products on the market.
Nice looking but very cheaply made
Ordered 2 roasters for a wedding reception since they looked good enough to serve out of. Received in original, taped and undamaged cartons. When we unpacked them one roaster had a large dent in the side. Time did not allow for an exchange, so had to use as is. When I plugged in the roasters, they smoked a little for about 10 minutes then stopped. We had to use them anyway, but they performed fine and cleaned up well. The stainless is thin and dents easily and does not fit in the frame properly. One of the temperature dials was loose so I pushed it back on and the enamel from the inner liner chipped from the light force, Overall they are very cheaply made, not nearly as durable as their competitors.
The roaster wobbled due one leg being shorter than another. I returned it to the store. When I tried to reorder on-line, the model was no longer available.
