Oven Rack Cleaning

I tried putting spraying on easy off then putting the racks in a garage bag and closing the bag. The racks were easier to clean the next day. Thank you bareneed and remander.

Grass Fed Burger at Burger Lounge in San Diego

Have tried Burger Lounge and it may be politically correct because it is grass fed beef but doesn't live up to it hype for deliciousness. The patty is slim and not juicy. My taste for burgers is similar to Frank Bruni's and he did on burgers that was great.

Best Roasting Pan for a Chicken

Olddad, amen to your comment.

Best Roasting Pan for a Chicken

The All-Clad small stainless roasting pan called the peti roti does not have an aluminum core. It is all stainless steel. I confirmed that with All-Clad's customer service. The folks at Cooks Illustrated recommend the Cephalon stainless steel roasting pan which does have an aluminum core. They state that the aluminum helps with even heating and prevents the pan from buckling if you deglaze the roasting pan on the stovetop for gravy.

After reading all these good suggestions, I'm not sure a roasting pan is the best bet to roast chicken.

Regarding the flatter pan idea, does it make rack and oven cleanup more of a challenge?

pizza stone vs pizza crisper

I have a pizza stone which works fine but it is heavy and sometimes difficult to clean. A pizza crisper which looks like an old fashioned pizza pan with holes on the bottom was recommended to me. Does it work as well as a pizza stone? Williams-Sonoma sells them.

Oven Rack Cleaning

Yuck! I am cleaning my oven racks and I have a double oven. I use Easy Off but it is not easy. Are there any newer products or methods that make this job easier?

Whenever I do it, I swear never to roast chicken again!

Roasting two chickens in the Same Pan and Need Help

I am roasting two chickens in the same roasting pan for a family dinner tomorrow night. Each of the chickens weighs a little over 3 lbs. I usually roast my chicken at 400 degrees for a little less than an hour. Will it take longer to roast the two chickens in the same pan than it does to roast one chicken?

How much longer?

Best Roasting Pan for a Chicken

Need some advice regarding the best roasting pan for chicken. Cooks Illustrated highly recommends the Caphalon stainless steel which is 16x13x4 but I wondering if that size is too large for a single 4 lbs chicken and the juices will burn and smoke. Any suggestions? All-Clad has a small roaster but it is all stainless with no aluminum core.
