What are the signs that a rival roaster oven needs more water?
When it comes to roasting, an oven is only as good as the water inside it. If the water level in your rivals' roaster oven gets too low, there are a few signs to watch out for. The first is that the roast will start to dry out and become overcooked. This is because the water is evaporating and not replenishing the roast. Another sign is that the roast will become increasingly difficult to turn, as the water inside the oven is lubricating the roast and allowing it to turn more easily. Finally, if the water level is low enough, your rivals' roaster oven may start to smoke, as the water is needed to maintain the roast's temperature and prevent it from burning.
