The NESCO Roaster first made it's debut in the early 1930's, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, manufactured by the National Enameling and Stamping Company (NESCO®). They were a longtime manufacturer of pots and pans, buckets, and other cooking and farm accessories in the growing agricultural state. It was about that time that a couple of their engineers were experimenting with electricity, as it was now available in Milwaukee. They took some wire, wrapped it around one of their double-boilers, plugged it in, and it got hot. Goodman's carries Nesco small appliances, dehydrators, food grinders, food steamers, handheld blenders, Nesco roasters, spa stone heaters, water kettles, electric kettles, commercial roaster, professional roasting pans and more.
