ROAST-N-BOAST:

Give thanks for the right roaster (Lisa Zwirn, November 12, 2008, Boston Globe)

Our search yielded three moderately priced roasters; some manufacturers have thrown in useful utensils. The Chef'sDesign French Roaster is heavy-gauge aluminum with nonstick interior and a stainless steel rack (an 18-inch-long pan is $99.99; the 16 1/2-inch pan $79.99). Calphalon's Contemporary Nonstick Roaster (16 inches) comes with a rack, baster, and two turkey lifters ($99.95; for $30 more you can get Calphalon's Contemporary Stainless Steel Roaster). Cuisinart's 16-inch stainless steel pan is paired with a rack, lifters, and an instant-read thermometer ($79.95). They'll all brown your bird beautifully. Alas, they won't make the gravy or wash themselves.
