Pro Great to use for a family-sized roasting
Because of its 18-inch size, it's big enough to cook a large amount of food. It has a 9-quart capacity where you can fit a 14-pound turkey with the lid on or a larger bird with the lid off.
Pro Great value for your money
This roasting pan is affordable. It's well-made and by a company that's been making cookware since 1901. There are some roasting pans of a similar size that cost more.
Pro Convenient side handles
This roasting pan has two side handles that will hold the weight of your 15-pound roast or a whole turkey. It will keep your mittens away from your food unlike other pans where you have to try to grasp its sides to lift it.
Pro Resistant to damage caused by metal utensils
Even when you use a metal whisk to make the gravy or sauce for your dish, your pan will be safe from damage.
Pro Easy to clean
Since this roasting pan has a non-stick quality to it, you won't have issues with food sticking to the bottom. If for some reason you still manage to do so, soaking it in soapy water will remove any residue. It's also dishwasher safe and the oval shape makes it very easy to wipe clean.
Pro Excellent multi-purpose lid
The lid of this roasting pan is great when you want your food to remain moist. It has inverted dimples that drip the condensation onto your food, basting it while it cooks. It helps in speeding up the cooking time and you can also use the lid as a separate open roaster.
Pro Safe to use
Graniteware's made from carbon steel and a non-porous porcelain surface. Its glass coating is inert and contains no harmful chemicals. It's safe to use for any type of food including acidic dishes that may corrode some types of roasting pans.
Con Unsuitable for glass hobs
You can't use this roasting pan on glass-surfaced stoves since it can crack the glass top of the stove. This is due to the excessive heat build up.
Con Prone to chipping
Since it has a glass coating, if dropped it may get chipped. If the damage is on the outside, it won't affect the pan's cooking ability or safety. But if it's from the inside, you must not use it anymore for food preparation or storage.
