Rated 5 out of 5Â by Catsitter Great Product
I bought mine after borrowing a friend's to fix a ham for a large family gathering. It easily fits a ham or turkey and I've also used it to make spaghetti sauce and beef stroganoff. I live in a warm climate and hate to have the oven on at the same time as the AC and found this is a great solution. I load it up with whatever I'm fixing and put it out on the porch. People have asked if its like a crock pot and it's not, with the thermostat it's more like a mini oven. The insert is a breeze to clean. I do wish the insert was a light color, the black makes it a little difficult to see food when cleaning. Also, I found the initial smoke off took longer than the hour in the directions.

I purchased this to use during Thanksgiving. I followed instructions and had the unit set to proper temp for an hour a day before to "cure". It did smell as directions said it would.
However, the day we intended to use it, the unit still smelled and smoke was still being given off. Due to this, we were afraid to use this. We unplugged the unit; never cooked anything in it and returned it to Kohl's. Kohls accepted the item for return no questions asked and my charge was credited.
My mother had a "portable oven" years ago and it was wonderful. They don't make things the way they used to.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jazzee87 Best ever kitchen addition
I remember my mom having a roaster like this in the 50's! I was planning for the holidays and remembered the previous years cooking with one oven. This roaster will either be for the turkey or I will use it to cook my 3 side dishes (separate purchase for the buffet kit). This item is terrific for any home, you will have an additional roaster with out heating the whole kitchen or even a take with you cooker. You will be so surprised what an awesome additional to your kitchen this will be. Bon Apetit!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Radgirl Works well. Quality could be better but still like
This roaster was a wonderful addition to making our holiday meals, allowing us to keep the oven free for our other baking needs. The turkey was done much faster than we calculated but turned our well. My concern is with how durable to roaster will be over time. This item was only available online for purchase. The issue is that the roaster doesn't sit level on the table because one rubber footings were pushed in and the metal base was indented when we took it out of the manufacturer box. It works fine none the less but we feel like the quality of the roaster over all is a little flimsy. Only time will tell. I would have exchanged it for a different one if it weren't such a awkward item to carry. Aside from that the actual performance of the roaster is great so far and plan to use it often.
