Cooking with Roasters and Roasting Pans
Perfect for cooking chicken, ham, potatoes, Thanksgiving turkey, and much more, a roaster is a deep metal pan that can be used in an oven or on a stovetop. Roasters come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes to accommodate any oven and cook nearly anything you need. They are usually made from metals like aluminum, stainless steel, and cast iron, and they typically include lids. Self-basting roasters typically feature lids that are designed to collect moisture while your meat cooks and drip it back down to keep the meat juicy and tender. There are also electric roasters that are built with internal heating elements to cook food independent of an oven or a stove.
Roasting pans are similar to roasters and can be used for many of the same jobs. However, they are often lidless. Because of this, they cook meat with crispier skins, but require careful basting. Like roasters, they can be used in ovens or on stoves. When purchasing a roasting pan, you should always consider its size and shape to ensure that it will fit your needs. Roasting pans are made from a wide variety of metals, including stainless steel and aluminum.
Roasting Racks and Basters
A roaster or roasting pan will usually include a rack to keep meat off the bottom of the pan. When cooking meat on a rack in a roaster or roasting pan, you can put potatoes, carrots, onions, or other veggies underneath the rack and let them soak up savory drippings while they cook. Roasting pans may also include a baster, which is an essential tool for delicious roasts. Basters are designed to suck up the juices from cooking meat and pour them back on top to keep the meat moist.
