Question about Rival 18 Qt Roaster Oven with Buffet Server

My 22 lb turkey isn't going to work in my Hamilton Beach roaster using the insert pan. I probably can't take it out and just cook in the bottom part, huh?

I never tried it with mine, bit the lower part is waterproof and the same material as the pan, so I would say you probably could, however, since they heat from the sides try to make sure the turkey isn't touching the sides directly or it may burn.

Can I cook a stuffed turkey in my Hamilton Beach Roaster Oven, and how long per pound do I cook it?


Hi,

The roaster oven will do just fine... just make sure to have enough liquids in there...

You cannot really go by the pound, but a 10 pounder will take about 4 hours a 15 about 6 and a 20 about 8, at 350... so that should give you a good idea...

I have a 23.5 pound turkey, and a 22 qrt Rival roaster: How long should I cook it and at what temp?


This turkey is bigger than 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.

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.

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.

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! :)

Missing insert pan for Hamilton Beach Roaster oven model 527


I am currently selling a triple buffet server by GE. It is new and in the box and says 'fits most 17 and 18 qt ovens. I bought it to use when I borrowed a roaster oven, but ended up never using it. It has 3 compartments, enamel on steel. It would take at least $11.00 to send and I would like $15.00 for the insert. If interested, answer this.

How long to cook a turkey


It's a slow cooker so I put mine on low, when to work and about 9.5 hrs later, all came out fine. Only thing I should have done was put the cooker in big pan to catch the some of the drippings that came out. Experiment! Or call Hamilton Beach, they might have a different answer.
