What is a self basting lid?
Regarding this, what is a self basting roaster?
Self-basting roaster. Self-basting roasters are roasting pans that come with special lids. On the inside of the lids, there are dimples or grooves specially designed to collect and direct condensation back onto the meat.
Similarly, how big of a turkey will fit in a 22 quart roaster? With a large quart capacity, it will fit a turkey up to 26 pounds. Think about all the other dishes you can heat and cook in your kitchen oven while the turkey roasts perfectly in the Oster® Roaster Oven. Not only that, you'll save 30% more time for cooking and use 36% less energy than a traditional oven.
Keeping this in view, why does my cast iron lids have spikes?
Bumps are there for a reason: The lids of some enameled cast-iron Dutch ovens have bumps, or spikes that return moisture to all areas of whatever you're cooking, effectively continually basting them. It helps condense the cooking liquid and redistribute it evenly across the pot.
What can you cook in an electric roaster?
Bake, Steam, Slow-Cook, and Roast Besides roasting large turkeys, hams, several chickens, I have used the electric roaster oven to cook a large batch of chili, stew, soup, enchiladas, lasagna, and chicken casserole. They are perfect for cooking a large casserole and then taking to a neighborhood potluck.
