The top-notch three-ply construction of aluminium core and stainless steel not only is very durable but also delivers even heating in every scenario. Also, it has a brushed stainless steel body which makes it safe to bring out of the oven and place directly on the dinner table.

The heavy-duty piece has good weight for easy handling and a nice depth for minimal food spillage. It’s built from tough and very conductive stainless steel for quality cooking.

Both the rack and the pan’s surface is non-stick that allows you to easily clean it up after cooking the food.

An Overview On Roasting Pans

When it comes to kitchen tools, a roasting pan is a must. Not only will you use this appliance to produce golden brown turkeys on Thanksgiving, but you can also use it for a Sunday roast or a weekday casserole. If you happen to be in the market for a roasting pan, there are a few things you’ll want to consider before you make a purchase.

Begin your search with the type of material the roasting pan is constructed of. The most common materials are aluminum, stainless steel, porcelain and ceramic. Stainless steel is the most durable and easy to clean, as porcelain and ceramic are susceptible to chipping and aluminum can warp.

While some materials are naturally nonstick, like the Granite Ware Covered Oval Roaster, others require a coating, or you’ll find yourself using a lot of elbow grease to get the pan clean after each use. The Calphalon Hard Anodized Nonstick Roasting Pan is actually outfitted with three layers of non-stick coating, so you won’t have to worry about scrubbing with this model.

Decide whether you’d like your roasting pan to have a lid. Surprisingly, not all models come with one. The Granite Ware 15-Inch Covered Oval Roaster has a matching lid with a handle on top for easily accessing your roast for basting.

Look to see if the roasting pan comes with a rack. You can always purchase one separately, but you won’t have a guarantee that it will fit properly in your pan. The Cuisinart Rectangular Roaster, for example, is rectangular in shape, so a traditional rack for an oval-shaped roaster won’t do. Thankfully, this model comes with a rack for quickly lifting your chicken out of the pan.

Always take size into consideration. In fact, you may wish to have a small, medium and large roaster on hand to accommodate the size of your roast. If you place a large roast in a pan that is too small, it will have a hard time heating evenly. A small roast in a large pan is also problematic, as it allows too many juices to escape, leaving your roast dryer than you’d probably like.

Finally, check to see if any of the roasting pans come with extras. You may be able to get a complimentary baster or a set of lifters.

DYWM Fun Fact

As long as there’s been fire, there’s been roasting. Of course, the first humans didn’t have pans to cook their meat in. Instead, they used sticks, sort of like our modern-day kabobs. Roasting was wildly popular among hunters during the Middle Ages and among the English in the 17th century, thanks to their growing love for beef.

In 1248, men in Paris formed a group called “The Brotherhood of the Chain of the Roasters.” This group still exists today, although their focus is no longer on simply developing foods fit for a king. In addition to fine cuisine, the group also has an interest in table art.

The Roasting Pan Buying Guide

  • Check to see if the company offers any type of warranty or money back guarantee with the purchase of one of their roasting pans. You may be surprised to discover that some cookware companies offer a lifetime warranty on their products.
  • When roasting meats and poultry, you’ll need to check that the internal temperature meets the country’s safety standards before you remove it from the oven and serve it to your guests. Poultry should always be cooked to 165 degrees Fahrenheit, while ground beef, pork and lamb need to reach 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Freshly cooked steaks and roasts are acceptable at 145 degrees Fahrenheit, so long as you let them rest for at least three minutes before you cut them open.
  • Always read the product label for cleaning instructions. Most roasting pans are dishwasher safe. If yours isn’t, fill the pan with warm water and a little dish soap. Let it soak for an hour before cleaning with your wash cloth. You can use a little baking soda and a non-abrasive sponge on any areas that are a little tougher to clean.
  • To reduce the chances of burnt foods sticking to the bottom of your pan, consider placing a sheet of aluminum foil down first before you begin cooking. The foil will catch any drippings that fall through the rack so that they don’t burn and get stuck to the pan.
  • The first thing you’ll need to consider when comparing prices is size. Although the Granite Ware 15-Inch Covered Oval Roaster and the Granite Ware Covered Oval Roaster are alike, the second model is much smaller and, therefore,lower in price. The second thing is the number of accessories that come with the roasting pan. The Cuisinart Rectangular Roaster only comes with a rack, making it cheaper than the Calphalon Hard Anodized Nonstick Roasting Pan, which comes with a rack, two stainless steel lifters and an injection baster.
