Granite Ware Covered Rectangular Roaster : Prized in kitchens since the turn of the century, this Granite Ware covered rectangular roaster captures the full flavor of oven roasting. Durable, dark porcelain-enamel on steel construction absorbs the oven's energy to distribute heat evenly and cook food at a consistent temperature. The domed lid allows air and moisture to circulate, ensuring juicy, poultry, beef or pork that naturally bastes in its own flavoring. With a high-rise lid that is almost as deep as the pan, this roaster accommodates up to a 25-lb. turkey or 25-lb. roast, allowing the clearance to prevent meat from sticking or tearing. The lid can be inverted to use as a second single roasting pan. Remove the lid and this roaster provides the excellent crisp-browning that only a dark steel roaster can achieve. The ample rectangular size lets you cook vegetables alongside for convenient all-in-one meals. Looped, easy-grasp handles for safe transport. PFOA-free and chemical-free. Dishwasher-safe. Rated the best overall roaster by the Los Angeles Times newspaper. Granite Ware cookware is designed by the American company that has supplied commercial and home kitchens for more than 125 years.

When I'm in the Kitchen, I become: Cooking Enthusiast
I purchased the rectangle to replace a very old oval one I have used for many years. It will be used when my daughter and husband and grandchildren visit. I like to back large amounts on holidays. It should serve many purposes - the entree' plus vegetables if desired.
