NESCO 6 QT Roaster Review

One of my goals this year is really cracking down on my budget friendly meals. I want to attempt to make meals out of one main dish more often. So far this has been a challenge thanks to my 7 year old son who seems to be going through a growth spurt! So I need to think even larger. Maybe roasting some beef and then make numerous dishes or maybe a chicken. But I didn’t really have anything I could that in.

A while back I had introduced you to NESCO with their 4 in 1 Pressure Cooker. Between that in their food dehydrator I have been in love. So I thought I would check out another one of their products, a 6 Quart Roaster Oven.

Now just to refresh your memory and for anyone new NESCO started back in the 1930’s with their roaster. Originally National Enameling and Stamping Company (NESCO®) was a long time pots and pans, buckets, and other cooking and farm accessory producer. Then a few engineers started experimenting with electricity, some wires and a double boiler. By 1981 the product was popular and was purchased by The Metal Ware Corporation who has continued to create electric cookware under the NESCO name. 


The 6 quart Roaster is a popular size because of how much it can cook, yet it is easy to transport to gatherings. It will cook food naturally and evenly with it’s “Circle of Heat®” electric element that goes around the sides of the Roaster. The cookwell can come in either a porcelain or a Nescote non stick cookwell, and you can choose from stainless steel, white, red, or green! So far the only thing I have made with this is a chicken. With different temperature settings it is easy to cook just about anything from meats to soups to even biscuits! I preheated the roaster while I prepped the chicken. with a garlic wine sauce. 

I set the timer for about an hour. Then I checked in on it. It was starting to look golden and juicy! I basted it with a little more of the garlic wine sauce and some of the juices from the bottom of the roaster closed the lid and let it cook for 30-45 minutes more. 
What I got in the end was this incredible juicy 3-4lb chicken. It was really good and evenly cooked. I was able to use the left overs to make a chicken and rice dish. Clean up was easy as well, with the lid and the cookwell being dishwasher safe!
NESCO truly never disappoints with their products. Overall I am happy with this product and can not wait to use it again! I really recommend checking them out for your cooking needs!
