When you purchase a new oven, stove, range or any appliance like those, it is best to turn them on for a while and "burn" the newness off.

SOURCE: 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! :)

SOURCE: can i cook a 20 lb turkey in a 16 qt rival roaster

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:

SOURCE: have 16 pound turkey how long to cook in 16 quart

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.
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.

SOURCE: no conventional oven...will turkey brown in roaster oven?

Turn your Roaster Oven to the highest setting... Rub your seasoned and prepared turkey with olive oil and roast it for 30 minutes, then lower to 325 for the remainder of the roasting time. Do not open the roaster oven during the roasting time or your oven will lose much heat and the roasting time will be thrown off! Use the Roasting times according to the USDA chart. I recommend brining the turkey for two days in a citrus brine for the best turkey you ever had!..

SOURCE: How to roast a turkey in 18-quart Rival Roaster

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


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.

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.

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.
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 for an 18 pound turkey. 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.

Am I supposed to take out the large insert before roasting a turkey?


No, no, that is the cook pan, roasting pan or "cookwell". That is where the food goes!
If you have never run the roaster you MUST burn it in first (tonight!) 1 hour or longer at 400, outside on the porch or in the garage; it burns off really smelly factory leftovers that smell really bad and will contaminate your food and atmosphere.

New Rival 22qt. Roaster Oven


If you want to use it for food tomorrow, you need to burn it in tonight; 1 hour or longer at 400 degrees, outside but protected, to burn off the factory oils, etc. If you cook in it without doing this, you will ruin the food (and the atmosphere) with bad smells.

This turkey is really bigger than Rival recommends for this roaster, so check the size/fit tonight, also. You need an inch all around for best cooking.

I use 325, not 375 as the Rival manual suggests, 4 hours for an unstuffed 18 pounder.

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.

16Qt Roaster oven


Dear Lunders

I cannot recommend cooking a turkey in a crockpot for many reasons. I have always cooked turkeys at 200/225 degrees in the oven overnight. The secret is to seal the roaster with heavy duty foil with maybe a cup of water in the roaster, bake the bird upside down. Turn it over, increase the temperature, and uncover it for an hour before serving. Worked for me for 40 years, and the guests never complained.

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.

No conventional oven...will turkey brown in roaster oven?


it looks like we're looking for a solution to the same problem. i've been searching and searching for an answer but have only found a few choices. one is to take the turkey out during the last half hour of cooking and place it in the oven to finish, thus browning the outer layer. another says to put some kind of a rub solution on. the solution is made up of sauces or juices that i really don't want in the flavoring of my bird. i wonder if the lid on the roaster was to be situated a little higher over the roaster so that the moisture could escape but heat could still be captured an reflect back toward the bird thus allowing the skin layer of the bird to "dry out" and bake. i haven't figured it all out. i'm still looking.
