I’m always looking around for better roasting pans. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I might eventually invest in a Calphalon Roaster like this Contemporary Nonstick one that includes a baster and injector, as well as trident style lifters. I think I’d first seen good things about the Calphalon brand of roasters for doing turkey in a Slate.com article. I think the one they talked about was the Calphalon One Infused Anodized Nonstick however, which is pricier and also not a readily available it seems on Amazon.
Anyhow, this particular roaster has a really heavy duty aluminum pan with a non-stick surface and is a good size at 16 x 13 inches and four inches deep. There is a lifetime warranty against any defects. The rack is also non-stick which I’m thinking could be handy - the one I currently have is not non-stick and it is such a chore to clean if you don’t do it right away - and who cleans the rack RIGHT after the turkey comes out? The only thing I was wondering about the rack is that it is of the “curved” variety which is completely necessary in this deeper style of pan. I’m not such a big fan of curved racks, but you could possibly get another rack to use with roastables other than big birds.Continue reading "Calphalon Roaster w/ Accessories"
