The Great British Sunday roast is a meal that is actually quite easy to make. Once you have the vegetables peeled, chopped and ready to go, the meat or poultry is a doddle to cook, but of course like everything, having the right tools makes any job easier.
This Judge non-stick Roast Tin and 'V' Roasting Rack has been designed to cook meat to perfection. It's made from heavy carbon steel, with a non stick coating and was both great to use and easy clean.
The tin provides even heat distribution, while the rack has been fashioned into a V to allow fat to drain away from the joint, giving you a crisper, healthier cut. The excess oil can then be poured away, or used to make gravy. As you can see the chicken cooked on the V rack came out of the oven with nice crispy skin.
Both the tin and the rack are dishwasher safe and have a RRP of £37.98
This pan is not suitable for hob use. Suitable for oven temperatures up to 240c/460f or Gas 9
To Cook a Whole Chicken:
I like to push a few sprigs of thyme, rosemary and sage into the bird since when cooking it makes the kitchen smell amazing. Drizzle with olive oil and rub the skin with a little sea salt and black pepper. Put the chicken onto the V rack over the roasting tin and into a preheated oven (200c/400F of Gas 6) for the recommended time for the size of bird you are cooking.
A 2kg chicken takes about 1 hour 50 minutes.
This Judge Yorkshire Pudding Tin cooked the pudding evenly and the only teeny weeny thing I could fault is it could have done with the rim being just 1cm bigger which would allow it to be removed from the oven easier since there's not much to get hold of when you have oven gloves on. With a RRP of £6.50 I say this is an excellent tin and it cooked my puddings really well so I'm happy!
Gravy is another part of a good roast dinner and I can fully recommend the Judge Thermal Gravy Pot which I reviewed a while back and still use to this day.
