Hi everyone
I recently came across an Everhot roaster 745 series A and just couldn't pass it up! Lol. I'm thinking it may be from the 1950s? I haven't found very much online for it . Does any one know where I mite be able to find the user manual for this ?

Never heard of the brand. The design is Art Deco. It sorta' looks like it was repainted at one point. Love the interior accessories! Very nice find!

I found some info on Everhot. It's a Westinghouse page, but scroll down and you'll find info and images of Everhot.

That Everhot name makes me think of the tea sets from Britain.  Is it the same company?  Surely not, but they were also a mid-century brand.

Thanks for the comments. And thanks for the link ultramatic ! Was definitely nice to see some kind of info on the company. It's a shame they didn't last.
I'm thinking the paint is the original paint. I think It's just yellowed with age and the fact that when I got first got it, it looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years !
I'm putting it through its first real test run today. I have a pot roast, potatoes, and carrots cooking. Seems to be working fine so far. Fingers crossed! Haha. Here's a few more pics just for fun :-).

Thanks for the link polkanut ! I always like seeing the recipes in the old appliance books. It will definitely serve as good reference

AJ, your roaster is really beautiful! Congratulations an a great find, especially with all the inserts too.

My Grandma had a roaster like this one. Every year during duck hunting season my Mom used to borrow Grandma's roaster to cook the pheasant and ducks that my Dad used to bring home after he went hunting. Mom always swore that this roaster was the only way to cook wild game birds. And all my Dad's friends loved those duck dinners that Mom would make for them.

Hi Eddie.
I love hearing stories like the one about your family. Thanks for sharing.
I can definitely see why your mom liked that roaster so much. The dinner I made yesterday turned out perfect! One of things I like most about this roaster is the size. It's not much bigger than today's typical size crock pot . The full sized rosters are great for party's or if you have a family to cook for. But this one is perfect for single guy like me . It's also going be great for the summer months when it's just to hot to run the oven. I love my frigidaire flair... but it sure does heat the house up during the summer ! Haha

Interesting roaster; reminds me alot of a Nesco. I'd say it's from the late 30's.
