Good quality pans and roasting tins are essential in my kitchen and it’s not always the most expensive that passes the test. With a busy kitchen I need equipment that’s durable, provides good heat conduction and is easy to clean. When Stellar Cookware recently launched the new Hard Anodised Ovenware range, I was more than happy to review one of the roasting tins from the collection.
This roasting tin is available in 3 sizes and I reviewed the smallest tin – 32 x 22 x 5cm. The tin is lightweight and will easily hold a family size chicken for roasting. It has a hard anodised finish for unbeatable durabilty and the alloy construction provides for even heat distribution. The thicker gague means the tin can also be used on the hob and under the gill, up to 240C.
I tested the tin for roasting chicken, potatoes and vegetables. On all 3 tests it performed well, non stick quality was excellent and the tin washed like new.
The handles are incorporated into the side of the roasting tin, a feature I really like and specifically tested the tin for. I have a habit of burning my wrists on the protruding handles of certain roasting tins, particularly when the hot tin is transferred from the oven to hob for further cooking.
At £20 this tin is excellent value for money. Other good features are:-
Hard anodised heavy gague material, abrasion resistant, can even use metal utensils.
Unlike some non-stick bakeware the surface will not peel or flake off and will never rust – also PTFE and PFOA free
Efficient and even heat distribution for superior cooking and baking results.
Suitable for oven use up to 240C – can also be used under the grill and also on the hob.
Stellar lifetime guarantee.
