Westinghouse Roaster Ovens were a staple in high-end kitchens in the 1950's. The Westinghouse Roaster was sold as a fancy appliance that could cook everything from cakes to your turkey dinner. Roaster ovens are not very efficient at cooking and were eventually discontinued from the Westinghouse product line. However, the old Westinghouse Roaster Ovens were made to last and there are still many for resale in the market place. If you are the owner of an old Westinghouse Roaster, you can follow a few instructions and use a lot of time and energy to cook your own Westinghouse Roaster turkey.

Things You'll Need

  • Westinghouse Roaster Oven
  • 20 lb. turkey
  • Cooking oil spray
  • Electrical outlet
  • Oven mitts
  • Heat resistant pads

Video of the Day

Plug your Westinghouse Roaster Oven into the wall. Place the cover on top and set the center dial to 350 degrees. Wait 3 hours or more for your Roaster to reach 350 degrees.

Take your cooking oil spray, open the lid on your Roaster and spray a thin layer of oil on the grill rack inside your Roaster. This will prevent your turkey from sticking to the rack.

Place your turkey on the grill rack inside your Westinghouse Roaster Oven. Return the lid to the top of your Roaster. Let the turkey cook in the Roaster for 5 1/2 hours.

Unplug your Westinghouse Roaster from the wall. Put on your oven mitts. Remove the lid of you Roaster and pull out your turkey by lifting out the grill inside your Roaster. Set the turkey and the grill on heat resistant pads on your counter. You have now used your Westinghouse Roaster Oven to make a turkey for your dinner.

Tips & Warnings

  • Check on your Westinghouse Roaster Oven every 2 hours during cooking to ensure even consistent cooking time and temperature.
  • Your typical Westinghouse Roaster Oven is not energy efficient. It uses about 1320 watts of energy.
