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.

Why Use A Roaster Oven?

A roaster can be used for doing all cooking and baking functions and it is easier to clean than your conventional oven.

It can be a moveable main cooking appliance at some times and a valued supplementary appliance at other times.

Use it on hot days instead of your large oven to keep your kitchen cooler.

Roasters slow cook just like a slow cooker, but do so much more. Roasters have better construction than slow cookers. Roasters have better thermostats than a slow cooker to accommodate the higher temperatures required for roasting and baking.

The removable cook wells of roasters can be stored in the refrigerator and washed in the dishwasher.

Roaster ovens support the current trend of comfort foods, saving money on cheaper cuts of meat, preparing soups, stew, chili and casseroles at home for the family. There is increased interest in eating family meals together and eating healthier. Our aging population is also interested in creating healthier meals.

Rectangular shape and squared off corners make it roomy enough for baking and for all of your favorite recipes.

Use these everyday roaster ovens to keep foods such as baked beans, German potato salad, vegetables, appetizers and dips at serving temperature.

The handy rack can be covered with aluminum foil and can be used as a mini baking sheet.

Automatic Temperature Control

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.
