Rate this product

Rapid Roaster cooks food three times faster than a conventional oven. Food such as chicken, stays juicy inside while developing a rich, brown texture on the outside with this roaster. Additionally, the Rapid Roaster allows you to place your entire dinner onto one pan for cooking. This means you are able to place your rice, vegetables and a choice of meat all into this one roaster. After after placing your whole meal inside, all you have to do is place the steam lid on top of the tray and insert the roaster into the microwave. Its flow through circulation rack allows food to cook in record time and be ready for consumption much faster than traditional cooking. A recipe book is included with this each order.

The Claim

Rapid Roaster is able to fit up to a four pound chicken or turkey into its interior and cook multiple foods at once. The infomercial claims you can cook an entire dinner without oil. You are able to use steam through the Rapid Roaster’s stack and steam design to cook the entire meal. As stated in the infomercial, this creates a healthier entrée. Since it is dishwasher safe, clean up is easy. All you need is a microwave, your foods of choice and the Rapid Roaster for a complete meal. This product is an all in one meal cooker that is convenient for small living spaces.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Rapid Roaster is $19.95 plus $7.95 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Rapid Roaster by paying the extra shipping fee of $4.95 for a total price of $32.85. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page which was taken offline due to Rapid Roaster being discontinued. Rapid Roaster may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.


  • Adjustable Steam Vent
  • Since not all food is going to need the same amount of steam, the Rapid Roaster allows you to adjust the steam vent. This ensures you get a dinner that is not too soggy or undercooked. Additionally, this adjustable steam vent allows for top to bottom air circulation, which helps thoroughly cook your food.

  • Browns Food
  • Without using an oven, it can be difficult to achieve a savory brown layer on chicken or turkey. The Rapid Roaster browns while it cooks, all without ever touching the oven. Via microwave cooking, you can have a crispy chicken with tender insides.


  • Large Enough Microwave Needed
  • If you have a small microwave, the Rapid Roaster might not fit into it with its tall lid. Most people don’t cook entire chickens in their microwaves and don’t consider size when buying a microwave. This can be problematic with the Rapid Roaster, since it requires entire meals to be cooked in a single microwave.

  • Not Good for Large Parties
  • If you have a big family or are having guests over, cooking with the Rapid Roaster can take longer than traditional cooking - since you will need to divide the food into sections for microwaving. This process can be time consuming and might not be the preferred method of large party meals.


  • Microhearth Grill Pan
  • This nonstick grill pan allows the cook to place food into the microwave and get hot-off-the-grill results. It maintains the foods natural flavor while thoroughly cooking your food. Additionally, it is very easy to clean.

  • Rangemate Grill Pan
  • This grill pan allows you to steam, sauté, grill and cook a variety of foods in your microwave. It has a nonstick ceramic coating that allows for easy cleanup.

How It Works

The Rapid Roaster uses an adjustable steam vent that allows cooking from the top down. This means that your meat will cook the longest, while your steamed choices will cook for a shorter amount of time. The stack and steam tray allows you to steam and cook at the same time. This eliminates the need for multiple pans.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Experiment
  2. Not all microwaves are the same strength, which means you will have to experiment with various times for different dishes. The recipe book might call for a certain amount of time for a recipe – but experimenting slightly will help learn the most ideal times for your favorite foods.

  3. Get Creative
  4. Once you’ve made all the basics and have gotten comfortable with the Rapid Roaster, feel free to get creative with it. Make up a recipe of your own, use an old time favorite your grandmother used to make, or grab an eye catching recipe from a different cookbook. This will keep your Rapid Roaster fun to use and will keep dinner varied.

I suggest you contact the website where you bought the Rapid Roaster from. This an independent review site. No one on this site will have any information on your order. It is like going to the movie theater and asking a question about an item at Walmart.
