|Everyone is in the kitchen|
It is getting again to that part of the year when everyone is in the kitchen. Several times a year, if you are lucky, you are called upon to entertain a large group of friends and relatives. For me, these are some of the year’s best of times. During these festive events, you will find yourself needing a large roasting pan for a whole ham, whole standing rib roast or large turkey. The basis for choosing the size of the pan depends on the refrigerator size for it will sit on the biggest shelf.
I want a big roast or turkey for several reasons:
People feel more comfortable with helping themselves to seconds if it looks like there is plenty.
I don’t have to cook again for days
If doing a bird, it takes a big one to hold enough dressing to last several meals

This is the type of pan one keeps forever so paying a premium is justifiable. If Aunt Martha stuck a fork or baster through your last tin-foil roasting pan and caught the stove on fire, you will be especially happy that this is not possible this year.
