It may seem strange to get so excited about a roasting pan that you would actually blog about it but let me give you a bit of background. For years, we had this old ugly green, heavy heavy roasting pan with a rack that would rust every time you used it..Finally about a year ago I got so tired of this darn thing and cleaning it was a real PIA! Everything stuck..
So I have been scouring looking for another roaster that comes with its own rack and I don't know why but I had a heck of a time finding one. I even bought a small roaster on Amazon and a rack they "said" fit the roast but of course when I got it, the rack did not fit into the pan.
Finally, this past weekend K-mart was having a huge store wide sale and I thought, eh, lemme try there. They probably won't have what I want but I'll look anyway. It can't hurt. And low and behold I found this baby!!
Isn't she a beauty? It's a Roaster with rack by Sandra Lee. (whoever she is)
I love the silicone handles on it because it gives it nice grip but the draw back is you can't put it in the dishwasher but I can handle that...
Look at the size of this heavy duty removable rack!
The roaster is all non stick as well. What a breeze to clean up!
So yes, I finally have a good roaster with a rack, I didn't pay full price which was around $50.00. I paid $36.00 and change and I am excited about it! :)
I made a delicious roast chicken in it Sunday that had fresh garlic and basil minced together in butter for under the skin, then I stuffed the inside with apples and tied that chicken up.. it was SOOOO delicious and the clean up was a walk in the park. So thank you Sandra Lee whoever you are for making this wonderful roaster with removable rack!
