Roasting is a very common cooking method, roasted vegetables, roasted ham, braised ribs, oh my! This is the time for the Roaster Pan to shine. But after learning all of its other uses and how much it can help make, we bet your Roaster Pan will become a regular in the rotation.

What is a Roaster Pan?

A Roaster Pan is a large, deep and high pan. It's kind of like an oversized casserole dish. Or a Roaster Pan with high sides, but no, that's not the same thing as a Roaster Pan.

Essentially, a Roaster Pan is a large, high-sided pot with a handle, sometimes with removable shelves, and sometimes with ribbed bottoms. The specifications of cookware are important because these subtle differences in design can affect the end result of our cooking.
For example, the high sides of a Roaster Pan will absorb heat and allow for liquid storage and accumulation. In other words, you can fill a Roaster Pan with ham and drizzle freely with pineapple sauce without worrying about spilling. The handle of the roasting tray makes it easier for you to move.

Roasting is ideal for meats such as chicken, pork and sometimes beef. However, it can also be used to cook fish and vegetables.

How many cooking methods?

Roasting Meat
The roast is really where the Roaster Pan shines. Their large size and considerable depth make them perfect containers for cooking whole birds, chunks of meat, and everything in between. For roasts, you can choose to use the grill function to ensure proper air circulation, and if you want to make more teriyaki, you can omit the rack and let the meat marinate in the broth it's soaking in.

Dishes like Thanksgiving Turkey, roast chicken, roast ham, and pot roast can all be made using your Roaster Pan.

Roasting vegetables
The size of the Roaster Pan means there is plenty of room for the vegetables. A Roaster Pan may be better for the job than a pan, as a crowded plate of vegetables is likely to be "steamed" rather than crisp and golden.

Again, you can bypass the prep bowl given the size of the Roaster Pan. Continue to throw all the ingredients into the pan, drizzle with the oil, mix and stir, then throw it into the oven. Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, roasted carrots, and more! Greens are easy to get when cooking on a Roaster Pan.

With a hunk of your favorite protein, a handful of vegetables and a sprinkling of spices, preparing a meal has never been easier.

Just like any other cooking method, you need to find the right cooker to serve your dishes.As we mentioned earlier, roasting is usually done in an open, lid-free pan.
