Many reviewers purchased the Oster Roaster Oven with Buffet Server, 18 Quart, White (CKSTRS71) to prepare a Thanksgiving feast, but they soon learned that the Oster Roaster Oven has so much more potential. Aside from roasting your turkey, ham, or whatever roast you're thinking, the buffet server option makes this roaster a versatile appliance allowing you to keep all your sides and fixings warm when it comes time for serving. Some reviewers realized they can do more than just roasting as well. Some even use this roaster for their baking needs. Others also noted that this Oster brand roasted the ham, turkey, etc. faster than the recipe called for. They even checked its temperature to make sure.
While the Oster Roaster Oven with Buffet Server, 18 Quart, White (CKSTRS71) is versatile with its serving methods and more efficient than some conventional ovens, it lacks compatibility with other appliances. One reviewer wished they would have been able to use the buffet server platters in their regular oven, but it appeared that it did not work out for them. Furthermore, some reviewers thought this roaster oven was rather ugly in the kitchen.
However, not all kitchen appliances will be compatible with each other. After all, we still cannot put metal in a microwave. And while some did not like the look of the Oster Roaster Oven with Buffet Server, 18 Quart, White (CKSTRS71), nobody complained of the roaster's performance. So when making this purchase, the important question you will want to ask yourself, "Do I need a roaster that fits my kitchen's design or do I need a roaster that works?"
