Product Review & Giveaway ***ENDED***

Remember when I mentioned a cool website I had recently discovered...CSN Stores, a site that has everything from le creuset items to home decor items! I was given the opportunity to review a product they sold. I chose the Nesco 18 Qt. Electric Roaster Oven. I got it a little bit ago and have had so much fun playing with it.

Now I'm sure when you see one of these, you automatically think you would only use it once or twice a year when you roast a turkey, right? That's kind of what I was thinking. But guess what?! You can do SOOOO much more with it. You can roast, cook, bake, steam, and slow cook.

Here are some of the things I have done with it.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread. Yes you can bake bread with it!!!!! Place two loaves inside. Set the temperature dial the same as you would in a regular oven, cook as long as recipe directs, and voila! I also made Roasted Garlic Potatoes. My broiler pan fit quite nicely. Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas. A 9x13 pan rests right on the rack. Creamy Lemon Crumb Squares. Super easy, and as long as what you're cooking doesn't spill over, you don't have any clean-up.

In the summertime, I don't like to to use my oven as much because it heats up the house. Now I don't have to worry about that. I use my Nesco Roaster Oven instead. I get all the benefits of the cooked food, delicious smells filling my home, but without the added heat. Awesome!!! I can't wait to try even more....cookies, casseroles, and of course, a turkey!

Want your own one of these babies? CSN Stores is generously giving away a $70 gift certificate to use towards any one of their 200+ online stores to one lucky Sew Dang Cute reader. To enter, simply leave a comment. You have until Monday, August 16 @ Noon, MST. Good luck!

  11. That is soo neat. Plus it seems like it would help keep your kitchen from heating up in these hot summer months (atleast down South where I am, turn on your oven and your entire kitchen feels like one..) Thanks for a chance to win. :)

  33. I've never seen a roaster oven like that before! I think I'm sold! We don't have air conditioning in our home, and it's hard enough for me to turn the stove on in the summer. Thank you for this review and giveaway!

  49. For the past several Thanksgivings, I have borrowed a friend's Nesco roaster for the turkey. The turkey turned out great, and really freed up the oven to cook other things!
