Due to manufacturing process, some smoke and odor may be noticed during the first use. This should disappear after the first heating of the roaster oven.
The best way to brown a turkey is to baste the whole turkey in butter before placing in roaster oven. Continue to baste the top of the turkey every half our while it is cooking.
Turn temperature control to the “OFF” position. Unplug the roaster oven from outlet and allow unit to cool completely. Wash the cooking pan, lid and roasting rack in hot, soapy water using a sponge or cloth. Rinse thoroughly in hot water, then towel dry. Wipe the inside and outside of the roaster oven body with a damp cloth. Never immerse the roaster oven body in water or other liquid. Do not put the cooking pan in dishwasher.
