Stainless-Steel Roasters

Whether it’s time for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner or you’re making a special dinner during some other time of the year, a roaster suddenly becomes one of your most important pieces of ovenware. The right roaster helps you cook your turkey, chicken or other bird to perfection every time. Not just for poultry, a roaster is also that go-to dish when the occasion comes for cooking brisket or roasts, or even for baking a full rack of ribs in the oven. Shop with us at Williams-Sonoma to find our varied selection of stainless-steel roasters, suitable for any type of oven.


Stainless-steel is one of the best conductors of heat when it comes to a roaster. Not only that, its durable construction allows for years of use, during long, hot hours in the oven. Stainless-steel roasters may have an aluminum or copper core; they may have nonstick coating on the interior or they may be constructed with complete stainless-steel. It’s a good idea to choose a roaster that has a rack, particularly if your recipe leads you to make gravies from your dishes. The rack helps keep the bird or roast above the cooking surface. When you cook meals without a rack, the juices do go back into the dish, keeping it moist. However, to make gravy, you want as much juice as you can in the pan for a robust flavor. All racks are removable, so if you opt for a roaster with a rack, you can always take it out for dishes, such as meatloaf or ribs.


Other features you may want to look for in a stainless-steel roaster include size as some ovens are small while others can be quite large. You may want to cook other dishes along with your roast, so choose your roaster accordingly. Some round roasters may come with an included lid that elongates their height. However, an included lid is a terrific choice to lock in food’s flavor, keeping your meal moist and warm during cooking.


There are different shapes and types of roasters as well. A shallow roaster is wonderful for foods, such as ribs and seafood. A deeper roaster is a terrific idea for your pot roast, brisket with included vegetables or for a bird at holiday time. You may also want to opt for a roaster set, instead of trying to judge size with just one roaster. This way, you have three to help make many different types of food in the oven. Another consideration is a rotating roaster made specifically for chicken.
