The first time we hosted the holidays at our house, I wasn’t exactly prepared. I didn’t have a roasting pan big enough so I wound up using glass casserole dish. I didn’t have a rack to put in there, so the turkey sat in the juices and didn’t get crisp skins – and I didn’t know anything about lifters. My cheap plastic turkey baster almost melted from the hot juices. It was a learning experience, and the multiple times we’ve hosted since I’ve been finding just the right tools to make preparing the holiday feast even easier.
This year, we were sent an Anolon Advanced Hard-Anodized Roaster Set to try out. The five piece set includes a 16″ x 13″ oval roaster, a rack insert, Two Stainless Steel Lifting Forks, and a Silcione-bulb Stainless Steel Baster with Injection Needle. The set includes all of the tools you need to make the perfect chicken, turkey or even roast.
When I first opened the Anolon Roaster set, my initial thought was the roaster pan seemed small. But remember – sometimes appearances can be misleading. I prepped a chicken to make for dinner, and the 6 lb bird seemed tiny inside the Anolon Roaster. The roaster pan and rack can actually accommodate a bird or roast up to 22 lbs (enough to feed over 14 people!).
The roasting pan was the perfect size to fit in the oven, and the rack supports the meat while lifting it out of any juices during cooking. To use the baster throughout the cooking, you simply unscrew the flavor injector to use it as a traditional baster. The set has everything you need to make the perfect holiday meal from start to finish. And the hard-anodized coating on the roasting pan makes clean up easy since nothing sticks to the pan. The large over sized handles make retrieving your meal from the oven easy, with handles that flare out away from the food.
If it’s your first time hosting and you need the tools to get started, or you need a reliable roasting set and tools this Anolon Roaster set is perfect for any occasion. With a life time guarantee, it will help make the perfect holiday meals for years to come.
