Achieve the perfect roasted meats and vegetables with the Viking Hard Anodized Nonstick Roaster. Made of aluminum, the term anodized refers to the electrolytic process that the aluminum is exposed to in order to harden the aluminum itself and make it resistant to corrosion. The process also makes the aluminum harder than stainless steel making it durable enough to provide years of roasting for family gatherings. Aluminum has long been prized as an excellent conductor and distributor of heat, ensuring youll achieve even and consistent cooking results each and every time. The interior is coated with a three-layer nonstick coating for superior release and durability. The tall, straight sided walls of the Viking Hard Anodized Nonstick Roaster accommodate a variety of different sized foods while minimizing splatter while the easy-to-grip handles make it easy to transfer the roaster from oven to counter with ease. The inverted handle shape allows the roaster to fit in a variety of ovens, even small ones with a little room to spare. The double riveted copper color PVD handles add a touch of sophistication to the convenience and durability of the anodized aluminum body.
The interior cooking dimensions on the roaster are 16 x 13 x 3 1/3. The exterior dimensions of the roaster (without the rack) are 17 x 13 1/3 x 4 3/5. The rack is 13.5 x 11 3/8 x 5 1/4. With the rack in place in the roaster, the height without food is roughly 5 7/16 tall.
Included with the Viking Hard Anodized Nonstick Roaster is an angled rack designed to slightly elevate ingredients to promote even cooking on all sides because achieving the perfect roast includes proper air circulation around the meat. The rack not only elevates the meat but also ensures that there is no need to reposition the meat during the cooking process. As the meat cooks low and slow for several hours, the fat from the meat slowly melts into the vegetables and other aromatics below, setting the stage of a luscious, flavorful gravy to compliment any dish. The handles built into the rack easily allows you to lift the meat out of the roaster while leaving the drippings and roasting vegetables in place. You can take the roaster directly to the stovetop and use two burners to make gravy right in the roaster without dirtying up a second pan.
As an added bonus, this roaster set includes the Viking 2pc German Steel Carving Set. The blade and fork are constructed from premium German steel. The bonus set includes an 8 Carving knife and 6.8 Carving fork to impress your guests as you carve the perfect meal.
