Yes just a little on the bottom so you don't burn anything you have in there.

No, do not put water near the electric element. Only inside the roasting pan.

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.

How to cook pinto beans in my 22 quart roaster oven


I cook 140 lbs of beans every year at church for a ham & bean dinner. I soak them overnight in 4 large rubbermaid containers (about 35 lbs in each covered all the way to the top with cold water). In the morning I drain the water, rinse beans and divide between about 14 cookers (several of them are the 22 qt roasters). You can put beans in to about 1 1/2 to 2" of the top rim. Put a ham bone in (I pre-cook about 12 10 lb bone-in hams two to a roaster sitting in about 1" water several days before, chop the meat, save the juice and the bones) and a cupped palm full of salt (3/4 to 1 T ?) and cover with water. Cook on about 350 degrees. When they start going dry add the leftover ham drippings that were saved (I usually have it heating in a crockpot nearby so that it doesn't slow the cooking of the beans down).

Trying to keep large # of hot dogs in buns warm. Do I put water in the roaster before adding the insert containing the hot dogs?


The Owner's Guide for the Rival 18qt Roaster Oven with Buffet Server is available here:

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

See Page 6 for full instructions on use as a buffet server.

You would normally fill the removable roasting pan with 5 to 6 quarts of water ot 1/2 - 3.4 full. Place in the buffet server frame and the empty serving dishes and then preheat at 350 degrees until hot.

Place hot, cooked food in the serving dishes and reduce heat to 250 degree to keep food warm. Adjust the temperature and add more hot water as necessary.

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!

I do not have the book and need to know if I am supposed to pour liquid in the bottom of the roaster when I start the turkey.


No, you never put water between the roaster and the cooking pan/ cookwell/ insert, it actually interferes with the cooking. You can put a little water in the bottom right under the turkey, but the roaster cooks very moist and this is really not necessary.

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.

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. 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.
