Can you cook tamales in an electric roaster?

Yes, but it is tricky/hard to do large amounts from scratchwithout scorching the ones on the outside. You do have to have a good high rack to put the steaming water under. How many are you trying to do?

They do have to be placed vertically to cook right.
