Our opinion

Roaster ovens may look like over-sized slow cookers, but they are closer in spirit to the hot box of a standard oven. The stainless steel shell of the Oster CKSTRS23-SB 22-Quart Roaster Oven provides stability but not necessarily insulation. The internal heating elements do generate a significant amount of heat during operation; this is the norm for roaster ovens.

A variable dial allows users to select temperatures from 150 – 450 degrees Fahrenheit. The appliance’s self-basting lid seals in most of the food’s natural juices, greatly reducing the need for basting by hand. Satisfied owners tell us they have successfully roasted turkeys of up to 26 pounds in this workhorse roaster oven.

The Oster 22 roaster oven boasts a removable roasting pan and steel rack. With no messy drips or spills when you lift your meat out of its juices, clean up couldn’t be more quick and easy. The stainless steel finish and black lid complement virtually any kitchen decor scheme from traditional to contemporary.

Whether you roast meats on a regular basis or you simply need something that you can use for holiday cooking, this Oster oven is a great option.
