Hi Joan,

To prepare a turkey, I first spray the liner and grate with Pam. Then prepare your turkey as usual. I do not salt the turkey as I found out the hard way that it make the juices too salty. Instead, I stuff, then butter the outside of my turkey. You should have the liner inside the roaster, with the grate on top. Put your turkey on the grate, add a can of chicken broth. Cook per instructions. I have found out that the tukey will be done quicker then it states in the instructions. If this happens, just keep the turkey warm in the roaster. Good luck.

Do I need to put water under the roaster pan?


Under the pan or inside the pan?

If it is a covered roaster no you don't need to. I put about half a cup of water in the pan to keep some moisture inside there at the start of cooking.

Your Owner's Guide for the Rival 18 qt. Roaster Oven with Buffet Server can be found here:

http://www.rivalproducts.com/manuals/MANUALS/RO180BR-C_43_18972586.PDF

Refer to page 6 for complete instructions.

You do not add water or anything below the roasting pan. You fill your roasting pan 1/2 to 3/4 full with water, place in the empty serving dishes, then preheat at 350 degrees until hot (about 1/2 hour).

Then fill the serving dishes and reduce heat to 250 degrees. You may need to adjust heat and more hot water if necessary.

The ladies at church continually want to place water in the large roasters and then put the insert in place. I don't believe this is necessary or safe since the water and steam are trapped between the...


Hi Jerry,
The ladies are right.

The appliance is called a steam table, and it operates on the same principle as a double-boiler. The design uses water as a thermal buffer between the heating element and the food, and ensures that the food is kept at food-safe serving temperature (varies by food, but typically over 140F, sometimes over 170F) but won't let the food get hotter than 212F so it doesn't burn or overcook the food.

If it's splattering boiling water, then it's overfilled and you should reduce the amount of water, but only by a little bit. A steam table should NEVER be allowed to run completely dry.


As for the steam getting you when you take out a pan -- that's true, and you do have to be very careful when you remove pans from a steam table.

Do you put water in the base of a nesco roaster?


No, you specifically DO NOT put water in the base between the roaster and the cook pan, this actually interferes with cooking.

Do you put water in the botom pan


No water between the roaster and the cooking pan!

If using with the buffet server insert, put a couple inches in tn the cooking pan below the buffet pans.

Do you have to put water in the first pan to cook a turkey?


Absolutely not. This is an oven, not a steam table, and water in the main roaster actually interferes with heat transfer. Water in the roaster cooking pan (the inside pan) actually steams the turkey, not a yummy solution.
