Take the Stress Out of Christmas Cooking with Non-Stick Roasting Pans

It’s that time of the year when culinary enthusiasts really get to stretch their wings and test their talents. The festive season is in full swing and plans are being made for parties, family reunions, and the kind of feasts that would make a royal blush.

If you’re in charge of the cooking, you’ll know that things can get majorly hectic in the kitchen. Whether you’re rustling up a fancy dinner for Christmas, New Year, or just because you feel like it; having the right tools is very important. For big meals (turkey included), you’ll need some solid, high-quality non-stick roasting pans

These handy hints and tips will give you some advice on what size and style of roasting pan is best suited to your culinary needs.

Size and Depth

The perfect roasting pan should be large enough for the food to sit comfortably inside, without touching the edges during cooking. This allows air to circulate, which is particularly important if you’re cooking a big turkey or a ham joint. The sides need to be tall enough to prevent all of those lovely juices from leaking out – around two to three inches is ideal. Taller non-stick roasting pans can be used for cooking things like vegetables, alongside the meat.

Don’t forget to check that your choice of roasting pan is actually going to fit in the oven. The last thing that you want, just before starting a big dinner, is to have to run to the neighbours and borrow a smaller one. The internal dimensions at the narrowest point are where you need to look for a matching measurement. This Circulon roasting pan actually comes with a fitted rack, so ingredients like potatoes cook crisp and free of moisture.


Sturdy, Non-Stick Coating

Always opt for non-stick roasting pans, because they cook the food more evenly and don’t collect as much debris. Premium roasting tools have a slick surface that allows users to quickly remove all ingredients. You don’t need to use a lot of force or pressure to clean them; the non-stick coating makes washing a simple task. It is best to have more than one roasting pan if you like to cook large amounts of meat.


Christmas and New Year dinners will likely require an oven full of roasting pans, all filled with their own tasty treats. Use a heavier, broad-bottomed pan like this Judge Speciality Roaster, for cooking birds and joints. A pan with smaller sides is better for vegetables and fish, as there is more room for the air to circulate. Try to match your cooking tools to the ingredients and the situation, as you’ll get a better result.

Where to Find High-Quality Cooking Tools

The good news is that there are plenty of great homeware stores and retailers out there. You can even shop exclusively online and buy everything that you need for family dinners, without ever leaving your couch. From non-stick roasting pans to study saucepans, restaurant quality knives, and state of the art electrical appliances; you can get your kitchen fully kitted out. Opt for superior materials, because they’ll wear better and last for longer.
