I use my beloved 6 qt. Nesco roaster for the bread dressing, too. Love that thing and if it died tomorrow, I would replace it immediately.

I usually make the bread dressing the day before using boxed Mrs. Cubbisons, the chopped giblets and their broth, chicken broth, and lots of celery, onions and sage sautéed in butter. Don't tell my daughter, SIL, and grandson I use the giblets, though. They don't think they like them.

I've never used a Nesco. To me it appears to be a big slow cooker. Other than size, what's the difference?

Mine has temps that range from 150°F to 400°F, well beyond a regular slow cooker's range.

With the Julia Child method, turkey gets cut up into the breast with the wings section, and the legs and thighs. You cook the breast piece for 30 minutes first, then place all the pieces on top of the stuffing so you can make 2 or 3 times as much stuffing as will fit inside even an 18 pound turkey, yet is still gets all the juices from the roasting turkey. It also takes up less room in the pan because you've removed a big part of the turkey that never gets eaten anyway.

This is a Rival roaster oven. Nesco is pretty much the same thing.




With the Julia Child method, up to a 20 pound turkey will fit in a roaster that normally only holds a 16 pound whole turkey.

Like Dawg said, the best thing about the Nesco or Rival roaster ovens is the programmable cooking - from the lowest setting just to keep things warm, to the highest setting which will produce a nice sear on roasts. Most slow cookers nowadays have limited temp features, and the 'low' is too high, IMO. I gave away my last slow cooker because even at low, it boiled things.

They're especially nice in the summer months when you don't want to use the big oven or stove top.

There's a huge difference Andy. You're in full control of the temp for one thing. The thing I hate about crock pots, is you have a choice of "low" or "high" and those silly vague temps can vary from pot to pot.
