With Christmas just around the corner you might be thinking of how you are going to cook the turkey and whether you need to buy a new roasting pan. Roasting pans come in all shapes and sizes and materials from metal, porcelain and even copper. They will all cook the turkey in a different way so we have picked the ten best roasting pans to suit every cooking style:
Granite Ware 0509-2 18-Inch Covered Oval Roaster – $13
This is perfect for slow-roasting and cooking at a lower temperature as the carbon steel core doesn’t get too hot in the oven and we also love the oval shape which is ideal for that festive turkey.
