Martha Stewart Collection Stainless Steel 15" Roaster with Roasting Rack
“This inexpensive roasting pan from Martha Stewart is sturdy and holds up very well for the price,” says F&W Associate Food Editor Julia Heffelfinger. It includes a removable rack for optimal basting as you prepare your Easter roast, and the sturdy, dishwasher-safe construction makes it one of the best values out there. This pan is also a perfect fit for city-dwellers, says Julia: “The smaller 15-inch size fits nicely in the cupboard of my tiny New York City apartment!” ($50, Macy’s)

All-Clad Stainless Steel 13x16 Roaster with Rack
Our Test Kitchen editors use this model on the job every day. “The flared edges help the heat circulate, and the pan heats evenly and retains heat well,” says test kitchen assistant Kelsey Youngman. The stainless steel construction makes it perfect for any recipe, even acidic or tomato-based dishes (which can sometimes react with other materials). It’s easy to clean and has nice, big handles for painless oven removal. And it’s durable. “The construction is thick and stable,” says Kelsey. “And it hasn’t warped, even after years in the test kitchen. ($130, Amazon)

Cristel France Stainless Steel Roaster
This roasting pan is certainly an investment—but pieces from this French cookware brand are built to last a lifetime. The aluminum core means it heats up quickly and evenly, and it includes a super-accurate thermometer and a roasting rack that folds for easy storage. “I especially like the large, upright handles on this tri-ply pan. They make it easier to hoist heavy roasts out of my oven,” says Deputy Editor Chris Quinlan. ($230, Williams Sonoma)
