About Tasty Roaster
Tasty Roaster is claimed to be a device that uses a patented design to cook like a conventional oven, but at microwave speed. In fact, the Tasty Roaster is claimed to work up to 4X faster than a conventional oven by super heating steam, which caramelizes and browns the outside of foods, while perfectly cooking the inside. Ultimately this is claimed to allow the Tasty Roaster to cook a wide variety of foods, including meats, fish, vegetables, rice, desserts, and more, simply by adjusting the built-in steam control dial.
On top of this, the Tasty Roaster’s design allows fat to drip away from your food for healthier cooking and meals with fewer calories, and to “stack cook” complete meals (e.g. meat and veggies on top, with rice below) at the same time, all in one pan.
Tasty Roaster’s plastic construction is claimed to be BPA free, non-stick, and dishwasher safe, making cleanup a breeze.
The microwave’s cooking speed has always been a great feature, but it’s not exactly known for cooking a wide variety of foods very well. But has the Tasty Roaster changed all of this? And can it help you cook healthier foods in less time? Consider the following:
Is the Tasty Roaster a Legitimate Concept?
In short, it’s difficult to say. Why? Because there’re not a whole lot of information provided on the product’s website about the mechanics behind the Tasty Roaster’s design.
However, there is a graphic on the product’s home page alluding that Tasty Roaster heats water to cause steam, which is then circulated around your food. And depending on the foods you’re cooking, the level of steam can be adjusted by opening or closing the built-in steam control dial.
Can Tasty Roaster Help You Cook Food Up to 4X Faster?
With this said, can heated steam in a close space cook food? Yes, as this is the basic concept behind steamers. However, does this necessarily mean that heated steam inside the Tasty Roaster will cook your food well, or up to 4X faster? This depends largely on the foods you’re looking to cook.
In other words, the Tasty Roaster will likely be ideal for foods such as rice and vegetables, but less ideal for others, such as meats, especially whole cuts of red meat.
Can Tasty Roaster Help You Cook An Entire Meal at Once?
As we mentioned above, considering that Tasty Roaster will be more suited to some types of foods than others, there may be instances where you can cook entire meals together (e.g. chicken, rice, and green beans). On the other hand, if you’re planning on cooking all of your meals with the Tasty Roaster, you might be disappointed by the results.
Do Customers Like the Tasty Roaster?
Because Tasty Roaster is a new product, it didn’t have any online reviews available at the time of our research. However, we did learn that the Tasty Roaster is manufactured by two companies: Product Trend, LLC and HIP Innovations, LLC, both of whom were also responsible for the WaxVac.
According to online customer reviews for this product, including here at HighYa, nearly all were negative and cited failure to work as advertised, poor quality, and difficulty placing orders (additional items added) and processing refunds as the most common complaints.
While this may not necessarily mean that you will experience the same with the Tasty Roaster, it’s something to keep in mind nonetheless.
Tasty Roaster Pricing & Refund Policy
Tasty Roaster is priced at $14.99, plus $7.95 S&H, which includes:

Finally, you’ll be assessed a $1 “web processing fee,” bringing your total to $28.94.
Tasty Roaster comes with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges. This means you’ll likely spend as much (or more) in S&H charges as you receive as a refund in the even you’re dissatisfied with your Tasty Roaster.
Nonetheless, if you’d like to initiate a refund, you’ll need to contact customer service at 844-841-4213.
Has the Tasty Roaster Changed the Way We Cook in the Microwave?
Chopping to the Point: Considering the scant amount of information available about how the Tasty Roaster works and the fact that not all foods are appropriate for steaming, we’d consider the possibility that the Tasty Roaster isn’t anywhere near as revolutionary as its commercial might make it seem.
