    Where can I find a manual for the "Easy Cook 737" ?

    I would heat my roaster to it's highest temperature (450-500 on mine) to preheat it for 15 mins. Once preheated reduce temp to 400 and place bird on top of rack and make sure the handles are up. (I usually brush my bird with mayonnaise and then sprinkle with the seasonings I like.) Cover and roast for 30 mins. to brown the skin and then reduce the temp to 325 and continue roasting for remaining time.(@20 mins per lb.) At the end of the time I use a meat thermometer if the little plastic reminder hasn't popped and the safe temp in the brest is 165 and in the thigh 180... During the roasting do not lift the lid as this will result in loss of heat and make the task take longer... 20 mins per lb is a good rule of thumb... Turkey will be very moist and the liquids coming out of the bird should be CLEAR NOT PINK... Enjoy!

How to roast a turkey in 18-quart Rival Roaster Oven. Need full instructions for 14 pound turkey. Have lost manual!


Hello Carolyn,

Here's a link to the Rival web site and your instruction manual for the 18 quart Rival Roaster. Basically you set the roaster to 350 (fresh) or 375 (pre-basted frozen and thawed) degrees and cook the Turkey for 9-14 minutes per pound of the turkey. Use a meat thermometer and cook until the Turkey reaches 180 degrees.

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

I would download and print out a copy of the manual for your use and reference. I also save an electronic copy of all the instructions and owner's manuals on my computer in a file I've titled "Household Items - Manuals & Guides". This makes it easy to retrieve them in the case I lose them again, as they might not always be available on the internet forever.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

How long do I have to cook a 13 1/2 pound turkey in the Rival 18 quart roaster?


This is the site for the manual:
http://www.rivalproducts.com/manuals/MANUALS/RO188BR_43_81844057.PDF

However,
The Rival manual suggested 375 for pre basted or 350 for fresh 9-14 minutes per pound. In my experience this is too hot. I use 325 for 4 to 4 3/4 hours at 325 for an 18 pound turkey; a 21 pounder takes about 35-45 minutes more. The USDA now uses 165 as the end point temp (down quite a bit from a few years ago), but if you stuff, that has to be in the middle of the stuffing, and the turkey will overcook somewhat while it gets there. Stuffing adds about 2 minutes per turkey pound to the cooking time.
All experts agree that turkeys cook better and safer if unstuffed, so considering that you will have to make an extra pan of stuffing to have it for everyone, you would be well advised to cook your turkey unstuffed and use some of the drippings to flavor the pan of stuffing while the turkey rests.

Have 16 pound turkey how long to cook in 16 quart roaster oven


The manuals are basically the same and a related manual is here:

http://www.rivalproducts.com/manuals/MANUALS/RO188BR_43_81844057.PDF

But they recommend 375 and I find that the turkey is much better at 325. The Rival manual suggested 375 for pre basted or 350 for fresh 9-14 minutes per pound. In my experience this is too hot. I use 325 for 4 to 4 3/4 hours at 325 for an 18 pound turkey; a 21 pounder takes about 35-45 minutes more. Do start checking the end temp with your instant read thermometer about a half hour before it "should" be done.

Can i cook a 20 lb turkey in a 16 qt rival roaster oven


This is way too big for this roaster, and the one way to do it safely is to cut up the turkey, placing the two leg quarters on the bottom, skin side up, legs to the center and thighs to the side, After 1/2 hour, you put the breast in, skin side up, on top. Use the cooking table and temp for a whole breast from this site:

Can I bake a turkey in a baking bag in my Rival 22Qt Roaster Oven (RO230-C)?


It depends on the size of the turkey, because the bag can't ouch the top, sides, or bottom of the roaster. But the roaster already cooks moist, so the bag may ber overkill.

Lost book. have 18lb. turkey. how much water to put in bottom of oven and how long to cook it.


Hello Rands!

Here's the manual for your use and reference on your Rival 18 quart roaster oven.

http://www.rivalproducts.com/manuals/MANUALS/RO188BR_43_81844057.PDF

According to the instructions, you should add about 5 - 6 quarts of water in the lower compartment.

Please download and print a copy of the manual for your use and future reference. I have made a file folder on my computer labeled "Home Appliances and Equipment" into which I save electronic copies of all my owner's manuals and guides, just in case they become unavailable from the internet in the future. That way, I'll always have a file from which I can review and print out a copy, if needed.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving and save me a drumstick! Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

What temp should i cook a 20lb turkey in a rival roaster oven model num r01801


This turkey is right on the edge of the size recommended for this roaster, so first, check the fit- you need about an inch all around including the top to get good cooking. Any place it touches the sides it will tend to overcook.

I use 325 for 4 to 4 3/4 hours at 325 for an 18 pound turkey; a 21 pounder takes about 35-45 minutes more.

Too big of a turkey


I LOVE these roasters!!! And now you've made me hungry for turkey. Yum!!! ;)

You shouldn't have a problem cooking your big bird in that roaster. You may have a little trouble getting it ALL to fit in at first, but of course, the turkey will shrink a bit as it cooks and it'll all fall into place. When you're stuffing Tom (the bird...Not the guy) into the roaster, you may have to coerce the cover to fully close over the top, but it shouldn't be too much of an issue. I've cooked even larger birds in my Rival 18qt without any issues, other than some that I mentioned above.

I hope this helps and have a very Happy Thanksgiving! :)
