Shorter days and cooler weather are a sure sign that its time to cook heavier, more satisfying foods. However, satisfying does not necessarily mean unhealthy when it comes to making a meaty roast. Measuring 12 by 15 inches and with a capacity of up to 25 pounds, this durable rectangular roaster can handle everything from a Sunday dinner boneless pork loin to a gigantic Thanksgiving turkey with all the trimmings. The included rack holds meats above the pan so fat and oil drip away and a leaner, healthier roast remains.
Made of heavy-gauge carbon steel with sturdy rolled edges, this roasting pan is well-balanced for lugging heavier roasts. In addition, the steel construction offers the perfect heat distribution required for roasting or baking and wont warp under high oven temperatures. Anodized cast aluminum handles at either end provide a slip-free grip and are bolted on in an upright position, which feels more natural for lifting and carrying. The floating steel rack securely rests on the handles interior bolts and wont shift during movement or scratch the bottom of the pan. Both the roaster and the rack have a high-performance nonstick coating that is resistant to even the toughest grease and oil residue. Conveniently, the nonstick coating is safe for cooking under the broiler, cooking with metal utensils, and cleaning in the dishwasher without concern of weakening its release properties. In addition to meats, the roaster can be used without the rack to roast potatoes or even bake a large, deep-dish lasagne. KitchenAid offers a one-year hassle-free replacement warranty on this roaster set. --Cristina Vaamonde
