It’s Versatile and Easy to Clean and Store
Electric roaster ovens range from a small 5-quart to a large 22-quart size. Some come with buffet pans so you can use the roaster as a buffet server. You will find stainless steel models, enamel, and even porcelain models. I love my stainless steel roaster oven and find it cleans up so nicely. I store my electric roaster in the garage cabinet until I need it.
Timing Is Challenging With a Conventional Oven
For many years, I baked our family turkey at Thanksgiving and Christmas in a conventional oven. It always turned out delicious, but what I found for challenges is how to bake other side dishes and desserts while a turkey is baking for hours and hours in the kitchen oven. Then I discovered the portable electric roaster.
With the addition to the electric roaster oven, I now have a second oven in my kitchen. I own a large 22-quart roaster which will hold up to a 25-pound turkey. That is important when you are hosting a family dinner for 15 guests or more each year. I was impressed by how the portable oven bakes or roasts the turkey as quickly as the conventional oven. I am able to put in my sweet potato casserole and green beans in the regular oven at the same time now.
Roasting in a Conventional vs. Portable Oven
Each year, most of us have a large holiday meal that requires roasting a large turkey, ham, or roast beef. Have you given much thought to your choice of how to roast this poultry or meat? Do you have a choice between your conventional oven and a portable electric oven? If not, which do you think you would prefer?
