One of my favorite kitchen appliances is my six quart Nesco oval roaster oven. This is a very versatile device that eliminates the need to fire up a full gas oven. The appliance consists of a well fitting lid, a main body containing the heating element, a removable cooking well and metal heat rack.
“First of all, you need to decide upon a suitable temperature to cook your chicken. The temperature that you choose should be apt no matter what happens. Otherwise you might end up spoiling all your chicken pieces.
Using a water-resistant market, affix a clear, detailed label with the sender’s and recipient’s addresses on both the outside of the box and the inside. That way, if the outside label gets wet or falls off, the address is still safe inside.
Cleaning is easy. The cooking well lifts out easily and is light weight. The porcelain interior is non stick and cleans with hot water and dish washing liquid. It is dish washer safe as well. The metal meat rack also cleans easily.
As you put up holiday decorations, consider those items you no longer display but may have held onto. Is it time for them to go to a new home? Or perhaps if you are using less this year because of the upcoming move, the things you aren’t using can be packed for the move.
Choose a roaster ovens large enough to accommodate your needs and a little extra. Think about the largest holiday turkey your family enjoys, as well as roast beef, or roasting 2 chickens for weeknight meals, extra to freeze and make broth, (more on that coming up). An excellent family size is 18 quart, or if you have a large family or like to entertain, consider a 22 -24 quart size roaster. If your family is small, or space or budget is a problem, smaller sizes such as 6, 8, 12 quart models work well with smaller cuts of meat.
Ingredients for making beer are pretty basic. A 40 ounce can of malt extract or 1.5 kgs. Sometimes you can find “pre-hopped malts, which gives a stronger hop quality. Two malts of this size can be used and the sugar omitted for best results. One teaspoon of brewer’s yeast (sometimes malt already comes with a package of yeast), and 6-7 cups of white sugar, or 8-9 cups of corn sugar. Some people like the results of using corn sugar better. In total all of the ingredients are around $10-$15. This will produce about 23 liters of the stuff.
The cooking fat, if you keep the water at the bottom preventing it from burning, it will be perfect for cooking potatoes or other vegetables, properly measured if the chicken was very fat and had produced too. To cook the potatoes just 1 tablespoon of fat per 250 g of potatoes.
