Everhot Roaster;

Cookbook Village had to share this fantastic find. Besides cookbooks, occasionally a vintage kitchen appliance catches our eye. We spotted this Art Deco 1930's Everhot Roaster on a vintage store display and had to have it. The photo doesn't do the design justice. We collect more than cook but we took this home anyway.

This beauty came with its original recipe booklet that seems to go for $20 plus on its own. Who knew there are so many vintage roaster collectors but we came across several helpful sites which put our roaster into the mid to late 1930's. Roaster fans...if you are reading this and know something about our roaster (date and value) we'd love to hear from you. We are stumped other than Everhot, 1930's, and model 680 Series A.

For those of you with any roaster, here's an interesting recipe from inside the booklet. We assume it can be replicated in other roasters. Hopefully when we plug our roaster in, it will work well enough to try this.
