The roaster oven’s circular heating system allows you to use this appliance as a slow
cooker for your favorite soups and stews.
• For better flavor, meat and certain ingredients, such as garlic, can be browned first in
the roaster oven at 425oF for 3-5 minutes. Then add vegetables, liquids and other
ingredients for slow cooking
• While in slow cooking, always keep the lid on to avoid losing water. Stirring is not
necessary.

6 cups water
1 small cabbage
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 cup carrots
1 teaspoon sherry
3 celery stalks
1 teaspoon salt

3. Turn the temperature control to the “OFF” position, remove the plug from wall outlet;
allow it to cool.
Helpful Tips:
• The roaster oven has been designed to utilize everyday recipes, although temperature
and time may vary. Check your meals two to three times during operation to ensure
ideal cooking results.
• Always preheat the oven unless the recipe specifies otherwise.
• Prepackaged or frozen items can be heated in roaster oven. Follow directions on
package for temperature and time.
How To Use:
1. Place the cooking pan into the oven body. Place the lid on the cooking pan.

COOKING TIPS AND INSTRUCTIONS
ROASTING:
Roasting in your Aroma® Roaster Oven will produce moist and tender meats. As a rule
of thumb, you may use the same temperature and cooking time as a conventional oven.
To sear the meat before roasting, place butter or margarine on the cooking pan. Cover
with the lid and sear meat on each side for 5-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
For the best browning results on poultry, brush melted margarine or honey evenly over
the skin before roasting. Follow roasting chart directions to cook. For the last 30-45
minutes, increase temperature for 20-50oF for additional browning if needed.
If you would like to add liquid, beer, for example, to enhance flavor, add at the last 30
minutes.
Since the thickness and condition of the meat may vary, you should check the meat 10
to 15 minutes before the finishing time to ensure best results.
Use a meat thermometer to measure meat temperature toward the end of the cooking
cycle. Suggested temperatures are 140oF for rare, 160oF for medium and 170-180oF for
well done. Please remember that pork should always be cooked to well done.
While roasting poultry or meat with mid to high fat content, add 2 cups of water to the
bottom of the cooking pan to prevent burning smoke from the dripping oil.
It is recommended to dry roast tender cuts of meat, such as ribs or sirloin.
The roasting times in the chart are approximate and should be used only as a guideline.
Several factors may affect the actual cooking times like meat temperature, thickness,
bone content, ingredients of stuffing, etc.
