$9.98? How the heck do you buy one for so little money? I would have bought two or three. You got a heck of a deal!

"special" lid for roaster

I just ordered my own (18-quart) roaster from nesco (at www.americanharvest.com) and also ordered the "circulating forced air lid" which is SUPPOSED to make this sort of steamer/roaster BROWN things very well - does anyone have any experience with these (lids?)

No experience, but very curious about how well it works. Do let us know, OK?

I went to your Americanharvest.com site. Is that just a vent system in the lid with various settings for proper vent adjustment? They don't really show too much. I have a lot of vented lids that can be opened and closed with vent settings; one for my roaster and another for my steamer...etc. They give you a little more control over your cooking than a piece of foil. I would be interested to have more information from your manual about techniques for roasting or steaming.

scrappin & Stir - sorry, but I haven't seen psiguy, fng or pitbull for a really long time here (the posts were from Nov '04)
However, they still have the big giant roaster at Wal-mart for under $30!

Thank you. I am sure that I will not forget to check them out next time I am at Walmart. 2004?

That's okay - it just shows how long I've had my big giant roaster and how much I still love it!

These are more for an extra oven than a crockpot kind of application, although they can be used for that.
To the posters that say things don't get crisp--do you absolutely have to put water in these? My mother had one (a Westinghouse!) and used it to roast turkey, etc. Can't you just put the chicken (e.g.) in a pan, no water in the bottom and roast? I am sure she did this.

You're right, jkath. I saw them for that advertised as a Christmas gift item this year. And, if I'm not mistaken, they also came with the buffet insert (3 shallow trays in a frame) to make it easy to serve several sides for a party, etc.

I've had mine for quite a few years. It really, really came in handy this last Thanksgiving. I needed extra room to cook 4 sides - we have only one oven - so I stacked them with a rack between them and everything turned out tickety-poo. My grandmother had the old-style Nesco roaster and used it all the time.

Another "amen" vote for the giant roaster.
