I received this item to test and review and I love it! I've used lots of different so cookers, but this is my favorite. I do a lot of bulk freezer cooking and the huge size of the cooking we'll is fantastic for double or triple portions of meals. I also loved the buffet serving feature with the three compartments. It allows space for keeping large quantities of food hot and serving to a crowd. Great for parties or the holidays. Clean- up was a breeze as the items can go in the dishwasher, but I washed them by hand to see how easy they were to clean. It was a breeze with no scrubbing required. Fantastic item I will use over and over. Versatile and can accommodate large quantities.

I got this about a month ago and we have used several times now. Once we cooked meatloaf and cook the meat fast and kept us from using the big oven. This was really nice in the summer to keep us from adding addition heat to the house. When we had some friends over for dinner, it worked great to keep our side dishes warm without using the top of stove. Was super at keeping stuff warm and making a buffet line. The only thing I didn't like is that there is no light to show that it on, but very easy to tell since unit is giving off heat. This great for entertaining or just for everyday use.

The roaster did not heat up the kitchen like the oven would, which is a huge plus on a hot summer evening. I first cooked a whole chicken in the roaster and it came out perfect! I'm really looking forward to using it at the holidays and not have to use both my ovens for the two turkeys that my family makes for Thanksgiving. I also want to use it to make a cake and/or cobbler. I did receive this product as a sample to review - and I'm glad I did!
The product is great. It big enough for a large feast, and it cleans up easily. DISCLAIMER: I received this product as a sample to review and did not pay for the product.
Overall this is a nice roaster. I cooked both a pot roast and a chicken breast. Both items cooked perfectly with little effort. Will definitely use it to cook my Thanksgiving turkey! The unit was super easy to clean. The only negatives are the size (it is pretty large since it can cook an entire turkey) and the unit gets VERY hot, so be careful with pets and small children. All in all a nice home roasting unit. Note: I received this product as a sample to review
The Oster Roaster has been a great addition to our household. We weren't sure what to expect but it has been a great way to cook multiple items when we only have one oven. We have used the oven to cook a ham and also beef and it worked well and cooked very fast. We have also used the warmer insert when serving hot dishes at neighborhood get togethers. We received the roaster as a sample for review but have been very pleased with it.
I received this through a product test. This roaster worked very well and was a nice piece to have in the kitchen. The only downside is those with a working stove don't actually need it
The roaster cooked the good evenly and at the correct temperature each time I used it. It is a little bulky but great to use as a server at a big party to keep food warm. -I received this as a sample to review!

What a wonderfully, versatile product this roaster is! I have tried many different types of meats in it (beef, pork, hams, chicken, turkey) and all have turned turned out flavorful- juicy and moist! I have also made brownies, small cakes and muffins in it and all have come out perfect each time. Lastly, I used it for a taco bar ( to keep beef taco meat- chicken taco meat- and melted cheese warm! It worked great!! I love not heating the whole kitchen up with the oven in the summer and look forward to using it this fall for numerous warm dishes! Thank you for making a wonderful product!
I got this roaster in the mail- upon opening it I read the instruction booklet. It does state there may a funny smell when initially turning it on- I did experience this small it only lasted a short time, and only happened the first time. The first time I used the roaster I cooked a whole chicken. Following the guidelines in the instruction booklet. Upon turning the roaster on it felt like there should be an indicator light to let you know it was on, and when it reached the desired temperature. The chicken cooked fantastically! I even tossed into some veggies everything was delicious and juicy! I do wish the rack insert cleared the bottom of the roaster more than smidge it currently clears, also the handle on the lid needs to be of a different material it gets too Hot to touch with out the use of a potholder. Despite the technical aspects I dislike everything I cooked- potatoes, rice, ribs, chicken, roast, soup- turned out evenly cooked and delicious! received this roaster as a sample to review

I wasn't expecting to much out of this roaster but it works wonderfully. I am use to cooking with a crock pot and the long time it takes but this cooks my food so quickly its awesome. my meats don't dry out and they just fall apart when done. My only dislike really is that it is so big. I only have a 3 person family and the roaster is very large for the amount of food I cook.

We absolutely love this Oster 18-Quart Roaster Oven!!! It has been a convenient addition to our kitchen. We especially like it because we can use it rather than heating up the kitchen with our conventional oven. We have prepared meals and baked with it and love that it is so easy to use and to clean! It's stylish stainless steel and black accents fit well with our kitchen decor. We can't wait to roast our Thanksgiving turkey later this year! It will most definitely free up our oven for pies, rolls and side dishes!!! We received this product as a sample to review, and are so pleased that we did!
I really like this roaster oven. We cooked 2 chickens in it at the same time and they came out perfectly. They even had some nice browning on them. We also did a pot roast with vegetables and it came out MUCH better than it does in a crock pot. We loved it and could fit a TON of food in there. The temperature gauge seems to read a little higher than it actually is but its no big deal b/c we have another thermometer. Love the 3 trays too. We had people over for breakfast and has bacon and sausage in one tray, biscuits and pancakes in the 2nd and sausage gravy in the 3rd. It worked out great. Can't wait to use it for a Thanksgiving turkey! I received this product as a sample to try out and review and its been great!
When i recieved the roaster, I was very excited to use it. It is very, and I repeat, very user-friendly. it's a dream to cook with due to the easy settings. The only thing I was not crazy about was the size. It did not fit in the dishwasher or sink so I needed to akwardly hand-wash it. That's the only negative thing about this roaster.
This is the first roaster than I have purchased and I am totally bummed that I didn't buy one of these earlier. Being a new college graduate, I am looking for easy but healthy meals, this does the trick! I have roasted everything from turkey to stir-fry. Very happy with product!
I got this roaster a few weeks ago and have used it a couple of times. Once made a meatloaf and it cook within the time we figured. What was great is the roaster did not heat up the kitchen like the big oven. Second we used to entertain friends by using the buffet trays. Kept the side dishes warm, with out having extra pots on the stove top. Really great to have the feature to use as a buffet. Only drawback is that there is no light to show that is on.

On first glance the roaster appears larger than I expected. It stacks for storage nicely with the roaster insert, roasting rack, buffet insert & pans & lid on top. Having everything fit together is a HUGE plus in my book. The construction leaves a bit to be desired and has some spots that aren't finished properly with the paint/sealer around the edges. There are very handy holders on both sides of the roaster that hold the lid at a perfect angle so that the moisture on the lid will not drip on the counter. I do wish the lid handle would stay cooler so i could just lift the lid with a bare hand. I have used the roaster for 2 items so far. Zucchini bread & pot roast with veggies. The zucchini bread, following the instructions in the included booklet for timing and temp, was over cooked on the outside and still raw runny dough on the inside. Total disappointment. The pot roast and vegetables was a redemption. The roaster browned the roast and veggies(potatoes, carrots, celery, onion) beautifully. But - there are hot spots so i did stir the veggies regularly when i noticed so they wouldn't burn. The roast was juicy and delicious. I have not tried the buffet insert yet, but plan to. I think it will work well for serving sides at Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. I also plan to test a turkey prior to the holidays so I know if I will use it for the big day. Overall I recommend the product if you are in the market for a counter top roaster. Disclaimer: I received this product as a sample to review.

I started using the Oster roaster oven about a month ago, and I am absolutely thrilled with it! First , I can't believe how much food it can hold!! We are a family of 6, and I can cook an entire dinner for our whole family in the roaster, and have leftovers!! The features are also amazing! I am so excited about the buffet style serving unit. My kids think it's so much fun to be served from the divider! The roaster oven is quick, efficient, and very easy to clean! I use it to cook dinner at least twice a week, love it.

I love how eay this was to use. You name it I cooked it chicken, turkey, veggies. I like being able to use it for a buffet. I would give it five stars but the only drawback is there is no timer. DISCLAIMER: I received this product as a sample to review I did not purchase it.

The roaster is a great product and works as anticipated. Everything is delicious and easy to put together, watch and complete. My only negative is that the product is very BIG and takes up a lot of storage space. For my needs, I don't often have a need to roast something SO big, so in an old house with a severe lack of closet/storage space, I would probably just stick with oven roasting or my smaller crock pot.
