Nesco Roasters

Does anyone use a Nesco Roaster? I am interested in what size, 4,6,12 quarts, are there any draw backs to them? They seem like a souped up crock pot to me, but I remember my mother using it as I was growing up.

When we were kids, my moms had one also.

Pork Recipe for 18QT Nesco Roaster


Hi everyone....I just purchased an 18qt Nesco Roaster and I am very excited to make my first roast in it but I am not sure of the roasting times or is there is any special way I need to prepare the roast before putting it into the roaster. Also may I place vegetables on the bottom as I do with a regular roaster? Does anyone have any mouth watering, yummy pork loin recipes for the Nesco? I am roasting approx. 10lb roast for 22 people along with a 22lb Roast Turkey. Thanksgiving obviously.

I would greatly appreciate all suggestions and advice. Make it a wonderful day....

Peace and Harmony....Joy

Hi!! Glad to hear that you've bought a Nesco Roaster!

I have no specific suggested cooking times for it, but I'd say use it as you would your regular oven with the temp set at 350 maybe. And yes, veggies
around the roast wouldn't hurt either. Happy roasting!!

My mom had one when I was growing up. I toyed with bringing it home when we broke up their household, but had no place to put it. Use it as you would your oven. I remember some awesome Thanksgiving turkeys coming out of there! That was before the days of two or more ovens per household, and it freed up the oven we did have for the pies, rolls and other baked goods!

Enjoy!

If you're interested in a roaster, Home Shopping Network has the Rival 20 quart roaster on sale for 50 bucks American.

We had a 6 qt. Nesco and a 10 qt Well-Built.
The thing I didn't like about the 6 qt. Nesco is that it didn't brown a chicken very well when I used it for roasting a whole chicken and because it had a metal liner it didn't work that well as a slow cooker either.

The 10 qt worked better for roasting.

I would recommend the 12 qt size Nesco.

I very seldom see Wellbuilt appliances now.

Sounds like a namebrand that has now faded in the dust.
