One of my favorite kitchen appliances is my six quart Nesco oval roaster oven. This is a very versatile device that eliminates the need to fire up a full gas oven. The appliance consists of a well fitting lid, a main body containing the heating element, a removable cooking well and metal heat rack.
Lay out veggie trays except for sliced tomatoes, cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Place pickles and olives in serving dishes, cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Coleslaw can be made, covered tightly and refrigerated. Deviled eggs can be made, tightly covered and refrigerated. If you have an unfrosted cake, you can frost it while still partially frozen, and then store tightly covered.
I love to make pot roast with potatoes and carrots and homemade gravy as my roaster cooks so evenly. It is great for making chicken with potatoes and gravy, Chili, meatloaf, casseroles, German potato salad. I have even made applesauce, baked apples and Spanish rice with stuffed green peppers. We can make a dish at home and take along with us where ever we are going and it is hot and ready to serve when we get there. It has 4 small rubber feet which makes it nice for traveling. We either place it in the trunk or on the floor by the back seat of the car.
Cleaning is easy. The cooking well lifts out easily and is light weight. The porcelain interior is non stick and cleans with hot water and dish washing liquid. It is dish washer safe as well. The metal meat rack also cleans easily.
Allow for adequate cushioning and packing material. A good rule of thumb is to allow three inches on all sides of the items being packed, including the top and bottom.
The Nesco 4805-14 roaster oven review is a versatile appliance. You can use it to roast, bake, slow cook, steam, and more. The unit also offers adjustable temperature controls, with a range between 200 and 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
Clean up is easy! It has removable stoneware that is dishwasher safe or can be washed in the sink. Be careful not to burn your hands when removing the inner stoneware. It can get very hot. Turn it off, unplug it and let it cool before cleaning. Be sure to keep the power cord away from water. After cleaning, it’s easily stored in a cabinet or on a shelf. It can be left out on a counter top until it’s used again.
Most important fact is making sure that oven is cool before you clean the burners. Before you turn the stove back on, ensure cleaning fluid is fully rinsed and the stovetop is dry.
