We love cooking. And we love cooking better and faster. Americans consume more than 8 billion chickens every year, and each Thanksgiving, they will gobble down about 45 million roasted turkeys. Unlike a conventional oven cooks the bird from the outside, which tends to dry out the meat, the TurboRoaster’s vapor-infusion system cooks it from the inside, guaranteeing juicy and tender poultry every time. The easy-to-use TurboRoaster saves you time and takes the guesswork out of cooking, producing a perfect 6-pound chicken in just 45 minutes, or a 25-pound turkey in just 2 hours and 15 minutes. $19.99.
