Product Description

Who wants their roast drowning in grease? Instead elevate the meat, and benefit both flavor and fat content.

To roast is to surround food with dry heat. Covering a turkey or joint of meat steams or braises rather than roasts, and placing it into a pan without a rack causes the lower part to boil in juices--that's why a rack is essential for proper roasting. This 12-by-9-inch rack ensures a holiday turkey, duck, chicken, or rib roast will emerge from the oven evenly browned and fill the kitchen with an irresistible aroma. It's nonstick, so poultry skin shouldn't tear when the bird is lifted to a carving platter. If necessary, scour this rack with a nonabrasive cleanser and a nylon or plastic scrubber; hand wash with mild detergent to preserve the nonstick surface. --Fred Brack

Customer Reviews:

  • What I've been looking for
    I've been looking for the perfect roasting rack for some time now and this is it. It's heavy weight and the entirely covered in a smooth, non-stick coating. The lifting handles are fixed in place but quite generous, allowing room for an oven mitt on your hand. I really like that the "ribs" are thick but widely spaced. They still support your food well but fewer "ribs" are easier to clean when you're done, although it is dishwasher-safe. Definitely the quality you expect from Calphalon. This rack comes in 2 sizes (this is the smaller one) and I bought both as I wanted the larger one for cooking ribs and large pork loins. Since the lifting handles are fixed (they don't fold down) be sure to measure the roasting pan you will be using to make sure this will fit. If the size works for you, I think you'll be happy with this reasonably priced, well-designed rack....more info
  • not pleased
    This is not made that well. Part of the rack are not welded together. Not worth the money...more info
  • good value
    What's not to like? It's cheap and non-stick. Good value.
    Unlike most reviewers here, I found cleaning the rack to be a snap....more info
  • Essential
    If you don't want to spring for a roasting pan, no problem - the disposables do just as well. There is no question, however, that your bird needs a lift out of its own juices. There is no better way than with this rack. Large, sturdy and truly non stick, this rack will ensure even cooking by exposing all sides equally.
    When you find a high quality kitchen essential at such a low price, I can see no reason to let it go. Buy it. Now....more info
  • A Must-have for the holidays (and everyday)
    I've had this rack for over a year now and I've used it many, many times. It's a roasting necessity for a beautiful holiday turkey, everyday chicken, or fabulous sirloin roast (gives you uniform roasting by allowing heat to circulate around the meat and preventing the lower portion of your roast or bird from boiling in it's own juices at the bottom of the roasting pan). This particular rack is offered in a larger size, but when I bought it last year, this was the only choice available. I'm very happy with it -- I've cooked a few 20+lb turkeys in it and don't see the need for the larger rack. Granted, my 22lb turkey did look like a size 18 woman in a pair of size 6 jeans, but it still worked quite well! I've never had a problem with clean-up that a little soaking in soapy water didn't fix. The rack doesn't look as lovely as the day I got it, but geez... it's been roasted a couple dozen times and it's still going strong. I highly recommend this rack....more info

  • Rack size too large for pan
    This rack is no doubt a good rack, but it does not fit the pan for which it is recommended. In the future, do not sell this rack with the roasting pan. Find a smaller rack that might fit the pan....more info
  • For those 'non-25 lb. turkey' roasting jobs.....
    I have both this and its 'big brother' that came with the Calphalon Contemporary roaster.

    This rack gets the most work since I rarely get to cook for large parties or family gatherings. It is sturdy but it is no joy to clean. That is why I have rated it 4-stars. This is the type of item, because of its sharp, fixed, hard-to-reach angles that begs to be dishwasher safe. I wonder when companies like Calphalon will get a clue???...more info
  • good size, and really, no stick!
    Every time I use my Calphalon roasting pan and rack, I am amazed how easily food comes off both rack and pan....more info

  • Calphalon Roasting Rack
    This would be a wonderful addition to any cook's kitchen. It holds almost any size meat or poultry... large or small. It will probably fit most roasting pans, although the Calphalon pan is the easiest to clean up. The best part... all the fat drips off the meat while it's roasting. Other roasting racks that I've used only sit a half inch or less off the bottom of the pan and sometimes that's just not enough to keep the meat out of the drippings. If you can love a roasting rack... I do!...more info
