From The Manufacturer

Originally founded in 1871, Columbian Home Products is the oldest cookware manufacturer in the U. S., famous for producing Porcelain on Steel cookware. The Columbian Home Products name was taken from the Columbian Exposition World Fair in Chicago in 1893 where we won the cookware innovation award for our naturally non-stick enameling process. We have been producing Granite Ware cookware in our Terre Haute, in facility since 1901. Granite Ware roasters are at the center of any holiday meal or special gathering. Our roasters have a strong carbon steel body perfect for absorbing and distributing heat evenly and quickly. They are energy efficient; the dark surface absorbs the oven’s energy, lowering cooking times. Porcelain is fused to the steel at 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit producing a non-porous, inert glass surface that is naturally non-stick. Porcelain can chip if dropped, however this does not reduce the effectiveness of the cookware. They are safe for metal utensils, easy to clean, and dishwasher safe! This roaster has a 9 quart capacity and can hold up to a 15 pounds turkey with the lid on and up to 18 pounds with the lid off. The exterior dimensions with the lid on are: 17 15/16 x 12 ¼ x 7 5/8. Interior dimension with lid on is: 15 x 10 15/16 x 6 ¾. They are great for flavor! Since the glass surface is inert and will not absorb foods, the taste is not altered like it can be with other surfaces. There are no PTFE’s, PFOA’s or any other chemicals to change the taste, color or nutritional value of the food.
