Roasting pan with rack...

  1. I have quite a few PC dollars to spend, and August is my kit enhancement month. I was thinking about buying the roasting pan with rack.

    You all that have it... do you like it?? Just curious...
     

  2. I LOVE mine! It's awesome! My favorite features are once you take it out of the oven, you can cook your gravy in it on the stove! Then, it has pour spouts on two sides so the gravy pours out way easy! And, It's a breeze for cleanup. Even if you let it sit out for a day after a party, lol. The only thing I would suggest is if you use the rack that comes with it, spray the rack down with oil or pam or something like that. The rack is not that fun to clean. It takes longer to wash than the pan itself.

    I hope this helps :)

    I love it too! If I were you though I would wait until September and put together a catalog show so you can get it for 60% off! (AND it will count toward Pan-o-rama points!):cool:

    ...use those PC$$ for something like the forged cutlery - you can order that on a personal order at the guest special price of 20% off! ...well a show in August could get you 2 of them at 60% off too...

    I absolutely LOVE this pan. Do I use it everyday...no. But I use it more than enough to justify it.

    About once a month, I make FOUR roasts with gravy in it. 2 pork, 2 beef (because I like the blend of flavors). I feed one to my family that night, and freeze the other three for later use.

    I brown 10 lbs. of hamburger in it, the separate into 1 lb portions for spaghetti, taco rings, hamburger helper, etc.

    I hear you can use it for chex mix, but I don't care for that.

    Caramel popcorn is also popular.

    Lasanga (sp?), enchiladas (sp?), etc. for a crowd is also good.

    You could also roast 4 chickens at a time, and freeze the meat for later use.

    And of course, there's always the Turkey!!!lol

    Definitely worth the price!

    P.S. The recipe is mine, the others I "collected" from here.
     
  7. WOW... thanks ladies!!

    I think I'm gonna have to get it, but I just might wait until September and put together my own catalog show for it. I'd LOVE to get it for 60% off and save those PC $$ for supplies and such.

    Thanks again!!
     
  8. THANKS!! And, here I was just going to buy it for the turkey and ham!!

    Katie- you will LOVE the caramel corn! I make it in the roasting pan, then, after it's cool, add nuts (cashews are really good), M&Ms, and sometimes candy corn. Search the posts for caramel corn, you'll find the recipe. It uses 6 quarts of popcorn.

    Katie,
    Depending on yor cooktop your may not be happy with the results. I have a glass cooktop that has a bridge so the left side heats completely.

    I got this from this site originally... The BEST

    Oven Caramel Corn

    2 Cups brown sugar
    2 sticks butter
    1/2 cup white corn syrup
    6 qts popped corn (exactly what the large stainless steel bowl holds. 24 cups)
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp vanilla
    Boil brown sugar, butter, syrup and salt for 5 minutes in large Roasting pan. Remove from heat and add vanilla and soda. Pour over the popped corn and stir well. ( may add 1-2 cups of nuts at this time also!) Pour mixture back into Roasting Pan (if using another pan, make sure you butter it very well!- but no need to butter with Roasting Pan!). Place in a 200 degree oven for 1 hour. Stir about every 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool. Store in covered containers to keep crisp.
     
  14. Oooooh, yummy!! The roasting pan with rack is SOLD!!

    Now, I just have to figure out if I wanna get it with PC $$!!

    I've used it make a huge batch of baked potato soup to feed about 20 people by putting it over 2 burners on my stovetop. Find that it works best with one front and one back burner. I also boiled 10 lbs of potatoes for a huge potato salad the other day. Sure is handy to have!

    I love all of these ideas!

    Nicole~ I took your flyer for the pan and updated it....I added some "ideas" that were mentioned here and I added the caramel corn recipe. Hope you don't mind!

    Here it is:

  17. The flyer looks great!!! I'm going to "borrow" it, if ya don't mind!

    Not at all...both of these flyers were "borrowed" from this site originally. I was just passing them on. Thanks for taking the time to condense them!
     
  19. I have been cooking my sweet corn on the stove top too, about 12 ears at a time. I also bake my homemade cream style corn in the oven...to die for! Tastes so good in the middle of Iowa winters!

    OOOhhhh, forgot to mention Ziploc Omelets! Directions attached...actually saw Paula Dean do these recently, too. YUMMY!

    Use all your tools to make the ingredients, they boil away.

    One tip is make sure you use the actual ziploc freezer bags, not generic. It does make a difference!

    I recently saw the ziploc omelets recipe in an RV magazine, then the next month they had a letter from the CEO of the ziploc company saying that you shouldn't put the bags in boiling water because they might leach chemicals into the food. I had already tried the recipe once but I won't try it again.

    I had read this too in a Health Magazine I subscribe to - I won't be sharing this recipe at my shows!:rolleyes: BUT I do sell a ton of 8" saute pans by describing to guests about my experience making the "perfect" omelet in one, and then sliding the omelet right out of the pan onto a plate.......it seems I'm not the only one who gets excited about making a perfect omelet!:D

    Oh, man. This is bursting my bubble! Paula Dean just recently did this on her show, too (it was a new episode). I'm going to contact ziploc directly, hoping that it's wrong. I love these!

    Okay. Got a reply...this is from Ziploc themselves...bummer!

    OH! But see - they are just coming out with a bag that can safely be used!


    Of course....that bag is direct competition for the Micro-Cooker.....:confused:
