Infuse your chicken with intriguing flavors using this vertical roaster - it will be the most flavorful and moist chicken you've ever had! Made of quality, 18/10 stainless steel, this roaster begins with a vertical roasting stand that attaches to a large, round drip tray (the stand collapses for easy storage). In the center of the drip tray sits a round dish with cone-shaped top. Fill the round dish with herbs, spices, cider, juices or beer; as your chicken rests on the stand, the aromas and flavors from the liquids and herbs pass through the perforations on the cone-shaped top, filling the cavity of the bird and adding moisture to the meat as it roasts. Instructions on using the vertical roaster are included.

Please note: The instructions for this item are listed on the box. There are no paper instructions included.

  • MOST HELPFUL REVIEWS:

  • Great product, easy to clean.

    This vertical roaster is very nice, very stable, qood quality product made of 18/10 stainless steel. The chicken cooks nicely, crispy outside and juicy inside. I am surprised that it is easy to clean, compared to the charbroil non-stick one that I replaced where the teflon was peeling-off after years of use. I rated this 4 out of 5 because I want to see more improvements on this product in the furure. This would have been perfect if (1) the drip tray is deeper so I don't have to put it in another pan to protect the oven from grease boil over and (2) if the holes in the cone infuser are bigger so the steam from the juice cup can escape and get to the chicken for more flavor.

    I recommend this product.

  • Works great and renders most of the fat from the chicken, left the skin crispy and the chicken was every moist. Best if you set it in a shallow pan to catch any overflow drippings. Also used it to roast a duck with the same great results and none of the smoke from oil splattering that usually happens when roasting duck. Very easy to clean up!

  • Vertical Roaster is great!

    I had a ceramic vertical roaster from a famous shopping channel. Part of the chicken didn't cook right and the skin was soggy. The Cooks Illustrated Show rated this vertical roaster in their equipment corner as the BEST so I purchased on their recommendation. It is excellent! I have a convection oven and the chicken cooked well, skin was crispy and meat was juicy - You will never buy a rotisserie chicken again if you use this vertical roaster. It's too bad there is nothing similar for other meats to roast. You don't need a rotisserie.

  • Crisp Roast Chicken at its Best

    I had tried verticle chicken roasters in the past that were pathetic. This device had my chicken standing up straight looking like it needed a clean tie.
    We did not try the infuser on our first effort, as we usually use rubs and wanted to measure the usual factors. What we did discover is that skin was evenly crisp on all sides. The pan that we put the chicken in was remarkably clean with grease ending up in a collection tray at the base of the chicken.
    The end result was an evenly crisp chicken, somewhat more moist that in other methods and
    I am looking forward to experimenting with the infuser.
    The instructions suggest fascinating ways to employ the infuser and they all sound good. Experimentation will determine the result.

  • Ist time user

    I have always roasted chicken in a pan in the oven, which was OK.
    But the Infuser is by far a better method. I usually eat the dark meat
    because the white is less juicy. But after using the Infuser, it was as
    juicy as the dark. Next time I will put it on the grill.

  • I used the vertical roaster for the first time the other night. It did an excellent job in holding (supporting) the chicken and providing even cooking.

    However, it also did an excellent job of messing my oven terribly. Your instructions should definitely recommend putting a pan under the roaster to catch overflowing juices.

  • A little cumbersome to put together, plus it won't allow you to place the chicken head down, which is the ideal position to cook it in. The head cavity isn't large enough to accommodate the frame.

  • Not having tested any other brand, I cannot judge, I am happy with this unit being stainless steel, easy to assemble, my only criticizum would be that it is very hot when getting out of the oven , a larger base could have been safer, or another tray that went along with it.

  • The concept of a chicken roaster/infuser replacing the dangerous beer-can roasting method was appealing, except that even at 400-450 degrees Fahrenheit the liquid in the infuser does not attain a sufficiently high temperature for steaming the chicken, and disassembling the roaster/infuser after cooking is itself a challenge. I got a tastier chicken and less clean-up frustration with the NapaStyle vertical chicken roaster, which in retrospect I wish I had seen/purchased before the Norpro.

  • There is just no way to get a more flavorful and moist roasted chicken than by roasting with this infuser. I'm having a great time trying out different liquids like beer and apple juice or just the drippings in the reservoir. I have gotten a moist and delicious result with a crunchy skin on every bird I've roasted with this roaster and it's a breeze to clean up afterwards.

    I purchased this for cooking in our "Big Green Egg" -- which is pretty much like cooking in an old brick oven. Unlike other upright chicken/turkey roasters, the stability of this one was its selling point. The outer "cage" is detachable so for smaller birds, I just remove it and set the chicken directly on the infuser. I still put the drip pan in a bigger pan to make sure any juices are caught rather than cripping onto the coals below, but in a regular oven or a large cast iron dutch oven, this probably would not be necessary.

    A giant step beyond the little "beer can" cookers, especially since the paints used on beer & soda cans are not someting I want infused into my dinner or caught in the drippings!
