After years of cooking the Thanksgiving turkey in the oven, we decided to try something new and use a roaster oven this year. The appeal was that we wouldn't have to heat up the entire house, and we would leave the entire oven open for cooking side dishes. I had never used a roaster before and was unsure of how it would cook the turkey, but it was delicious. The meat literally fell off the bone while we were trying to carve it. The GE Roaster Oven is easy to operate, easy to clean, and doesn't take up a great deal of room on the counter. It plugs in to a regular electrical outlet and holds a turkey up to 20 pounds. We sprayed the bottom, sides, and inside of the lid with a non-stick cooking spray before we began. The turkey sits right inside (we even stuffed ours) and you pour a few cups of water into the bottom. You can set the temperature on the roaster, just like you would an oven. Also like an oven, you don't want to lift the lid a lot while you're cooking or else the heat will escape. But you can do so every now and then just to see how things are coming along. Although the house didn't get hot like it does when the oven is on, it still smelled amazing while the turkey cooked. And like I said, the turkey was amazing! The meat fell off the bone while we were trying to carve it, and there was literally no turkey wasted.
