  • Aroma roaster oven-how do I use it?
    I bought an Aroma Roaster Oven ( Here's the link for the exact one.
    I have no idea how to use it. I bought it a couple months ago on a shopping trip to Branson for $25!! It's huge. I have a big family, so I was pretty excited. But, when I brought it home, there were no instructions on how to use it. I've cooked a roast in it, and it worked great. But, I also want to use it as a slow cooker, which it says it can do, but no clues how. I want to make black eyed peas and ham in it tomorrow, but am nervous about leaving it alone with my husband while I am gone!
    Does anyone know how to use this thing??

    Here is a link to recipes for a Nesco Roaster Oven. I am guessing but they should work the same way.
