Rated 4 out of 5Â by Dan N Excellent Product
I bought my 18-qt roaster six years ago. I have used it for many turkeys (17-22 lbs), stuffed and not, and been very impressed with the results. No rust, no problems - just a great roaster. It cooks about 30% faster than in the oven and, with a little basting, the bird is always perfectly cooked and never dry. Sometimes browning is a little problem so I might put a just-cooked bird in the oven for 10-minutes to brown the top darkly. The lift out rack is great for getting the bird out of the cooker and on the serving tray without damage.
Hate to see reports of problems but happily not my experience.

Bought this to free up oven space for the holiday. Followed the recipe in the instruction manual / recipe guide. The turkey bag barely bumped the side of the pan while placing the bird in the roaster, the bag immediately melted to the side of the roaster. I am not sure there is any way that I could have prevented bumping the side of the pan short of exchanging the turkey with a Cornish hen. I only used the bag because the recipe in the enclosed manual instructed me to do so. Bad idea!!! In the end I cooked the turkey in my oven and after dinner spent hours removing the melted bag from the roaster pan. Not sure if the roaster is ruined because of the melted bag. For now this is just another appliance gathering dust in the pantry closet.

This roaster was a wedding gift for my wife and I. The first use was great, however, the lid rusted immediately. Not sure if Bella will replace the lid or not but the replacement may just rust too!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by pastorjdh Began Rusting Immediately
This is the poorest quality kitchen appliance I have ever seen. I am very surprised that it is even made. The lid began rusting after only one use. I did not put it in the dishwasher or do anything to make it rust. It is rusting merely from cooking boiled peanuts in it. I called to ask about it and they told me to, "Call back in a month to order one. We are out of lids right now." Save yourself the trouble and don't buy this.
