Clever Kitchen Set of 2 Microwave BBQ Roasters
A great kitchen gift!
I actually bought this set for my son who is setting up his first kitchen when he moves. It can be very hot where he will live so cooking in the microwave will not heat up his kitchen. These are also very easy to use and a very healthy option for steaming vegetables. I recommend these for people who are new to cooking for themselves because the directions are clesr and make cooking simple.
Doesn't brown as described
Tried several meats - all seem soggy & a. Bit tough.
Will keep trying since I kept them
NG for me
I gave it a 'fair' because the only thing I tried was chicken but in my case the chicken was overdone on top and still particially raw on bottom.
My microwave is new and 1100W and yes, has a turntable.
Back to little NESCO for me where it's guaranteed everytime.
I've had this a couple of weeks and got it out last night to use. The chicken I bought was a little large and was too big. (My fault for not reading the instructions before I went shopping.) I needed to put a meal on the table quickly so I cut it in half. Followed the instructions and it came out great!
Then I had half of the chicken in the fridge. I got up this morning and cooked it also. This time I used an old recipe I've made for many years. Simple, just lemon juice and paprika.
It was just as good as it is when cooked in the oven.
I'll be using it a lot.
I do wish it would accommodate a larger chicken but then again, I have a small microwave.
Can't wait to use it on other things.
Changed my chicken roasting life!
This makes the BEST roast chicken I have ever tasted. My husband used to opt for fried chicken...not any more! He's loves this microwave roasted chicken. We just eat this roasted chicken, look at each other and say "that was really delicious chicken", every time we eat it!!! I looked up chicken poultry seasoning recipes online, made it, soaked the whole chicken in heavily salted water for a day. Followed the recipe in the accompanying book, used the olive oil, cooked in the microwave oven for 8 minutes/lb because I have a 1100 Watt microwave oven and let it set for 5 minutes after cooking. (I check the chicken's temp with a thermometer for about 180 degrees.) In a little over a half an hour of cooking you have a delicious roast chicken. YUMMY! I recommend this product if you hadn't already guessed.

I am not a cook, but the Microwave BBQ Roaster is awesome. I have baked some of the best chickens ever, right out of the microwave. I didn't think it was possible but it really works nicely.
Better than expected!
I was very skeptical about a microwave roaster, but this is an awesome product. The first thing I made was just a simple roasted chicken. I rubbed a little olive oil on the skin and seasoned it with salt & pepper and some rosemary & thyme and in only 35 minutes I had a very delicious, juicy chicken my family & I loved. Everyone expect cooking chicken in the microwave would be dry and chewy, but it was so moist and the chicken just fell off of the bones. I'm considering buying more to give for Christmas presents. This is such a wonderful product for a great price.
Best cooker ever
I use this cooker5out of 7 days! It is great to steam shrimp, broccoli , potatoes and a lot more. Everything that I have cooked in it has turned out great.
Tasty and quick
Although I purchased this several months ago, I used it for the first time tonight to make a whole chicken. It was easy and tasty, will try some of the other recipes soon.
I love this. I made the chicken and it came out great. My next dinner will the the meatloaf.
great chicken during hot summer months!
I live in an apartment without central air and it can get hot during the summer months. Now I can have roast chicken without heating up my kitchen during the hottest months. I tried the BBQ chicken recipe and it worked beautifully, just as demonstrated on TV. The only thing I would change is to make it slightly bigger to accommodate a larger bird!
I love this roaster!!! I have only used it to make whole chickens so far, but they have all turned out delicious!!! So easy to use and easy to clean!!! After receiving my first order I placed a second order to give to friends. They agree that this is a wonderful product!!
