Induction Granite Enamel Ovenware from Judge - Review

I must tell you about my two latest kitchen lovelies both from Judge Cookware; the Induction Granite Enamel Ovenware range.

First up is this Induction Granite Enamel Bake Pan (JS06) which is made from heavy grade steel with an enamel coating.  As it doesn't claim to be non-stick I have to be honest wondered if it would be up to the job of turning out perfect roast potatoes, but as you can see it was and my roasties didn't stick at all. Happy me 😃

It's a good size too at 32cm x 19cm although there are larger versions available.  A chicken fits in nicely as does a joint of beef.  Of course and can be used for loads of other things besides roasties.   Dishwasher safe and oven safe up to 240°C
Now for the Induction Granite Enamel High Oval Roaster (JS02) which is also available with a lower lid.  Like the bake pan it's also made of heavy grade steel with an enamel coating.  Carbon steel is a great heat conductor and reacts quickly to temperature changes.  It has all the advantages of cast iron but of course is nowhere near as heavy.

I have the JS02 which is 36 cm x 38 cm x 19 cm.  The lower lid version is 14 cm (5 cm lower) and personally I think that would be the perfect size as I was surprised at how big my one is.  Although with that said it depends of course on what you want to cook in it but there's only two of us so it is a tad large.  But I love cooking with it and the design of the lid means it's self basting so you don't have to keep opening the oven to baste your meat or poultry.  This one is suitable for cooking an extra large chicken; although I believe the lower lidded version would still be fine.

This is a great investment for any kitchen as it's actually two products in one; the lid can be used on the hob or in the oven as a roasting dish.

  1. Could someone please tell me if I still need to use oil with a self basting roaster

    1. Hi Unknown. You don't have to use any oil but, for example, the skin on a chicken would not colour as well if you don't smear it with a tiny bit.
