Hallelujah! After months of living in our wee apartment, I finally figured out that our oven (which thankfully did not explode in my face because it was electric) works! I am just so excited to move one step forward with my beginner cook skills and try my hand at oven roasting and perhaps some baking.
BUT again, our wee kitchen is so bare that I do need to make some kitchen equipment purchases to help get me started. This week, roasting pans have been on my mind because I dream finally of cooking up some roast pork / beef / chicken / lamb / vegetables and perhaps throw in a batch of brownies or homemade granola too.
The dilemma is: What kind of roasting pan am I supposed to buy?
I maybe overanalyzing this, but I’d like to think of it as making the right decision to which roasting pan would address my needs best. Basically, I need a multi-purpose – for both roasting meats / veggies and baking – easy-to-clean and not to expensive roasting pan. Oh, one that is microwave, fridge and freezer safe too. Plus one I can cook on the flame stove top ala Jamie Oliver. Is that too much to ask?
Some say go for stainless steel as it is the cheapest. BUT those babies are quite a challenge to clean.
Some say go for pyrex or ceramic since those are easier to clean. BUT those can’t be use on stove tops as I’ve read on one too many roasting pan tags. Or can those be used on stove tops?
What do you think is the best option for me? I do plan to grab me roasting pan soon. Like later. Hahaha!
