Years ago I was living in a small "cabin" for want of a better word, that did not have a stove at all. I used a hot plate and bought a "Nesco Roaster." I still use the roaster to this day, and all turkeys are cooked in it. It can be turned low to double as a slow cooker or higher to reach oven-like temps......No need to turn on the oven at all, not even to crisp up the skin as I just turn the temp up for the last half hour......

I'm glad it turned out well for you! I have cooked items in the crock pot, and then put them under the broiler on a baking sheet for just a few minutes if I want to crisp them up some. Works pretty well.

Oh - thank you so much for your response!! I think I even dreamed about this...

I'll be putting on the crockpot meal soon!

I NEVER cook - but am now living in a new state - and NOTHING is open as far as restaurants go except a couple of Chinese restaurants. I am craving a traditional meal - and have no oven. So...crockpot to the rescue :)

Marry Christmas!!

Remove the net and wrapper, and wash thoroughly inside and out. Then cook.

I've never tried, so I'm afraid I don't know. The skin wouldn't crisp in the crock pot, so it probably wouldn't be my favorite method.

For Christmas I am making turkey and stuffing in a crock pot (never done this before).

The turkey has this net-type thing over it (it is a 2.5 pound turkey breast.

Do i leave the net on it and put it in the crock pot? Or cut it off?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

Happy Holidays!!
