A roasting pan has many functions. This go-to kitchen item allows you to bake, broil or roast meats, veggies and casseroles, and its size is perfect for large family dinners and holiday meals.
Roasting Pan Accessories
A roasting and broiler pan can come with extra tools to make meal prep easier. Consider the following:
● A roasting pan with a rack protects a large cut of meat from the pan’s hot surface to ensure more even cooking. The juices that drip into the pan make great gravy.
● A broiler rack and pan allows for even cooking of burgers and steaks in your kitchen broiler.
● A roasting pan with a lid helps the meat stay juicy and warm, and prevents the meat from burning.
● A meat thermometer helps you cook your meal to the correct temperature.
● A baster keeps allows you to cover the meat with its own juices during the cooking process, keeping it moist and juicy.
Roasting Pan Features
Before you select a roasting pan, make sure it is broiler-safe, meaning it can handle heat up to 500 de-grees. A shallow roasting pan is great for a pork loin, chicken or vegetables. Choose deeper turkey roasting pans to cook those 20-pound Thanksgiving birds.
Use stainless steel roasting pans to give meat a good sear if you’re cooking directly on the pan’s sur-face. A non-stick roasting pan is best for easy cleanups after dinner. Its surface makes it easy to loosen food and rinse clean. Choose a pan that adds extra style to your kitchen, such as an enamel roasting pan in a bright color, like red.
