Are you trying to keep things warm, like with a warmer tray? then it will be fine if you add water, and this can also keep the food a little moister from the steam. it is not neccesary to add water but you can. Water will leave a deposit line inside the unit when it heats up and starts evaporating, this won't hurt anything and you can clean it with some cleaner and a scrubber. If your a cooking with it, then you don't want to use water, just put the food in the insert and cook it like that.

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


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...

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.

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.
