Question about Oster CKSTRS18 18-Quart Roaster Oven, Stainless Steel and Black

2 Answers

How do I use my oster 18 quart roaster oven? I want to fix a small turkey.

Nothing. It's new, but came with no book. For instance, do I add water to it before placing my turkey in, or line it with foil and what temperature do I roast my turkey. Any info would be great.

I would put my turkey in a cheap roaster bag you get three for a $1.99 at Kroger's, Food Lion or your favorite grocery.
You can find a manual online are using the name of the roaster in the model number and it is a user's manual.

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!

Do I just plug it in and roast the turkey or do I put water in the bottom of the roaster


It doesn't hurt to put a couple of cups of water in the bottom of the roaster, but turn the turkey face down for the first few hours, then turn it right side up for the last hour. All of the juices that would drain to the back stay in the breast making it much more moist. I use a stainless steel dutch oven in the regular oven then uncover and flip in the last hour, and turn on the broiler in the last 10 minutes to crisp the skin. Let it sit for an hour and then carve. Set aside at least 5 hours for a 12-14 pound turkey to preheat, prep, cook, cool, and carve. Add another hour for a turkey in the 18-22 pound range. I usually hand rub the turkey with extra virgin olive oil and dust with black pepper, ground sage, thyme, and some onion and garlic powder. Cram an orange and lemon/lime into the cavity to add some interesting flavor to the bird if you are not stuffing.

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.

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!

Big 18 pound turkey and no manual


Place turkey on trivit in roaster and add 2 cups oof water. place lid on roaster and seal edge with foil. Preheat oven to 500 degrees.  Place in oven for one hour and turn oven off and go to bed.  Turkey will cook while temperature is coasting down.  Turkey will be still warm in the morning.  We have been doing this for several years and always comes out golden brown and juicey.  Do not stuff bird while cooking.

Placement of water in the roaster


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.
