The BEST brand for a roaster May 2, 2018
Nesco, in my experience, makes the best roasters available. I'm a "roaster guy", as I use them for everything that I can. Everything from serving pans, to turkeys and hams, to slow cookers.

If you're new to Nesco and coming from other brands, be aware that these will seem to "run hot" in comparison. I don't go over-the-top or anything when it comes to bench-marking, but I know what temperature water boils at. I have a couple other roasters that, when set to "250", don't even BEGIN to boil or simmer water or other liquids. With Nesco, I believe the temp setting is much more true. So if you're used to having to cook your roast (or whatever) at a higher temperature, please don't make that mistake with a Nesco. If anything, you may have to turn it down a bit!

I have never had a Nesco die on me, and I have one that is at LEAST 15 years old. And believe me, it gets a LOT of use (i.e. 2 or 3 times per week, sometimes more).

There's nothing wrong with a crock pot, but sometimes being restricted to only "low" or "high" just doesn't cut it. For those times, go with a Nesco. (And, once you do, you'll realize that you can also use the Nesco in those "low or high moments too, so in the end, it's a much better investment in the long run!)

I, personally, want to buy about 5 or 6 of these "all stainless" 18qt roasters eventually, to have a full catering line of them, for when I need it. Overkill? Maybe. But I'm "that guy".
