Roti Pans - Should You Use Petite or Large?

By John Reardon | Families Today


Hello my Foodie Friends!  


Well it’s getting real close to big time roasting season and we want you to have choices. All-Clad is a great product and they have just the right size Roti Pan for your oven. You should have the size that is right for your family. Now some of you are probably saying ‘Why not both John?’ If you have the room then it is good to have both but some people are squeezed for cabinet space. My older sister used to say most houses are built by men who never think about the kitchen but they build basements that can serve as the neighborhood pub and garages that can serve as a jiffy lube. They don’t ever make enough cabinet space in the kitchen. So here are my descriptions of our two roti pan sizes from All-Clad: 


All-Clad Stainless Steel Petite Roti Pan w/ Roasting Rack


Sized for double ovens and for accommodating smaller poultry, tenderloins and roasts, the All-Clad Stainless Steel Petite Roti Pan comes complete with a nonstick roasting rack. While capturing juices for basting or creating gravies, pan construction features mid-height sides and high riveted handles. Stainless steel with aluminum layering is an exceptional heat conductor that lets temperatures surround and penetrate even the thickest cuts. In ovens, the All-Clad Roti Pan without the rack is also a convenient size for roasting vegetables. For smaller meal requirements, the roti pan and rack combo can also accommodate Cornish game hens for two or a 10-pound turkey. Meats on the nonstick rack lift easily for resting while the pan moves to a cook top for deglazing. Interior pan construction is nonreactive 18/10 stainless steel, which allows for glazing with acidic marinades including tomato-based sauces. In a smaller size, the All-Clad Stainless Steel Roti Pan is a special occasion piece that is also a convenient accessory for weekly or everyday use.



All–Clad Stainless Steel Large Roti Combo With Rack and Turkey Forks


Don’t trust those special occasions and holiday gatherings to inferior cookware. This large and sturdy roasting pan is the perfect solution to all your roasting needs. The set includes a non-stick roasting rack and two stainless steel turkey lifters. The 16” x 14” size will accommodate turkeys up to 25 pounds.

The All-Clad Stainless Large Roti pan is pure stainless steel. The nonstick roasting rack securely holds a whole turkey, chicken or roast, allowing natural juices to flow into the pan. The 18/10 stainless interior won’t react with vegetables and drippings roasting in the bottom of the pan, so they retain their natural flavors. Now all you need is the bird or roast.


• Rectangular pan includes a nonstick roasting rack.

• High handles on sides are solid stainless steel with rivets.

• Interior 18/10 stainless steel is nonreactive for use with acidic ingredients.

• Petite size accommodates smaller turkeys, Cornish game hens and other small cuts.

• Larger size accommodates larger roasts and turkeys up to 25 pounds.

• Limited lifetime warranty.

    Now I hope this clears up any problems with your equipment needs for Roasting Season!  

Remember my Foodie Friends to baste liberally and that: “Life Happens in the Kitchen!”


Take care, 

John and Paula
