Not the best roaster for $200,
This review is from: All-Clad 501631 Stainless Steel Large Roti Combo with Rack and Turkey Lifters Cookware, Silver (Kitchen)
I recently checked out the All-Clad roaster at Bed Bath & Beyond and decided against it. Three design flaws turned me away from it:
1) It's not tri-ply, only stainless steel.
2) It can't be used on an induction range (I don't own an induction range, but I like to plan for the future).
3) It's not flat on the bottom (raised center), so it will be difficult to use to make gravy.
After a little research, I bought the Mauviel M'cook 1830 large roasting pan. It's slightly smaller than the large All-Clad, but it has five-ply construction, can be used on any range and is completely flat on the bottom. It's a beautiful piece of cookware with a lifetime warranty. Plus it's made in France, not China (like the All-Clad).
I bought mine from [...] and it came with a rack included for $200.

I would recommend calphalon's roasting pan with rack for $120, its tri ply with aluminum core and 18/10 stainless steel. How much is the Mauviel M' cook? By the way it doesn't really matter that its made in france or china, if your concerned with quality, I would be aware of the brand, and not the location of where it was made, quality control is controlled by the company. All clad is still high quality, just not every item they have may be completely satisfactory. I own almost everything all clad, except the roaster I replaced with a calphalon, its cheaper than the all clad, and it is about the same size, and better performance because it is tri ply aluminum core.
