This is the Circulon 16-Inch Rectangular Nonstick Roaster with rack measuring approximately 16½ x 3¾ x 13½ inches.
“Because this pan is made from heavy-gauge hard-anodized aluminum, it is great for cooking at high heats and is very durable. The quality of this pan is great. It feels very sturdy and because the strongly riveted handles face up on the sides, it is quite easy to put it into a very hot oven (and take out again!) without catching your wrists on the sides of the oven…which many of us do, even while wearing oven mitts!
The roaster is oven safe up to 500 degrees so this is a big help!
The rack that comes with the pan is great for keeping poultry or meat off the bottom of the pan. This lets the hot air flow all the way around the food. It also means that the fat and juices can drip freely into the base of the pan and you can then put the pan on the stove top to make delicious gravy. Because it’s got a non-stick surface, just be careful to use silicon or wood utensils if you’re making gravy in the roaster.
Also, because the food hasn’t been sitting in the fatty juices, it doesn’t get a ‘soggy bottom’ and stays dry. You can even flip it over towards the end of cooking to crisp up the bottom!
If you don’t like using a rack, this pan scores points too, as it has high and low grooves that protect the nonstick surface.
Also, because this pan is good and deep, it can easily handle a large amount of drippings from the meat. If you don’t want to make gravy straight away, it’s easy to pour the fat and juices into a heat-proof jug as the grease doesn’t seem to drip down and back on the sides of the roaster, as we have often found when trying to pour liquids out of regular pots and pans. This is not only helpful and safer but makes cleanup easier too.
This roaster can take up to a 25 lb turkey so that gives you some idea of its’ capacity! Great for Thanksgiving…
When it comes to cleaning this pan, the rack is non-stick too, so that the food releases easily from it, leaving minimal stickiness behind. The non-stick surface means that it can’t go into the dishwasher but again, because it’s non-stick, cleanup isn’t too hard. For really hard stuck on food, just put some hot soapy water into the roaster andleave it on a low simmer on the stove top for ten minutes and the stuck on bits will just float off.
Roasters aren’t the most glamorous things to buy for your kitchen but if you invest in a good one like this, you’ll never look back!”
