Cooking Turkey in an Electric Roaster

Here's how long you should cook an 18 pound turkey in an electric roaster for delicious results.

An 18 pound unstuffed turkey should cook for 2 to 2.5 hours. Keep in mind, a turkey cooked in an electric roaster may not brown as well as one cooked in the traditional open pan oven method, so we suggest using a browning sauce (mixture of butter, Kitchen Bouquet, and paprika) for a nice, golden brown turkey.
