As long as you preheat the roaster covered for a least 20 minutes, and don't keep lifting the lid, it acts and times like a regular oven. The cautions are:
Does not dry out as much, so pay attention to liquid amounts.
Does not make a crispy top/ edge. In fact, when it is done and I turn it down, I spread a cotton dish towel over he top to catch condensing steam.
If you want a crisp top, canned French fried onions such as Durkees do quite well.

You can write back. If this saves you time, trouble, or money, please make a donation to support the site. Thanks.
