The versatile 6-quart Nesco roaster oven allows busy cooks to roast poultry, bake a casserole, poach fish and even steam hot dogs inside the tabletop appliance. Many models include buffet dishes, so food can be kept warm for serving when needed. The size of your Nesco will determine how many hot dogs can be steamed, but the oven cavity can be filled with hot dogs, which will be ready to eat in approximately 10 minutes.
