No, not a good idea. Use the unit strictly as a roaster and not as a steamer.

    From owner's manual... CAUTION: NEVER add water directly inside the ROASTER OVEN BODY.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

Do you add water to the bottom pan before you state cooking with it?


Hi,
Yes, you need to add a couple of cups of water first... more depending on what you are cooking...if the meat you are cooking will make its own juice then you need not add any more...also if you are cooking at a higher temp then like 350 then you may need more water as it will boil off...

Do you put water in the base of a nesco roaster?


No, you specifically DO NOT put water in the base between the roaster and the cook pan, this actually interferes with cooking.

Do you put water in the botom pan


No water between the roaster and the cooking pan!

If using with the buffet server insert, put a couple inches in tn the cooking pan below the buffet pans.

Here is the manual for additional help:

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.

Do you need to add water in the bottom pan to use a roaster as a buffet server?


Not just no but absolutely no. This is an oven, not a steam table, and water between the roaster and the roaster cook pan actually interferes with the heat transfer, as well as building dangerous steam.

Do you have to put water in the first pan to cook a turkey?


Absolutely not. This is an oven, not a steam table, and water in the main roaster actually interferes with heat transfer. Water in the roaster cooking pan (the inside pan) actually steams the turkey, not a yummy solution.
