My mother in law has this, and busts it out every time we visit. Of course, my husband has 3 married siblings and 3 nieces/nephews, so it's a good sized family. But, Thanksgiving turkey is always amazing out of this device! As is the Christmas ham. And the Easter ham. And the venison loin. And the pot roast. You get the point. Also, as previous posters have pointed out, cooking times are shorter, and the oven is freed up for the important things. Like stuffing and PIES!!!
