Pros: Perfect bird every time - instant clean up - really attractive pottery
Cons: Ceramicware - its breakable, but it's not easy
Chef Paula Wolfert turned me on to this product, and I've re-ordered several times, not because I've ever broken one (I haven't), but I've wanted to increase the number I have on hand.
These are also awesome gifts to fellow cooks.
Since I wrote the description for this product, I have learned that the Lowerys are no longer producing the volume they once did (each roaster is a labor of love), which makes me want to stock up on a few more. This is the least expensive, most practical, efficient and attractive poultry roaster I've yet encountered. And to serve our Glazed Cornish Hens on the roaster is always an 'oo-ah!' moment. Taste triumphs here - budget, palate & eye. Cannot go wrong with this product.
