You might be of the opinion that a roasting tin is just a roasting tin, but we are here to change your mind. Far from being exclusive to cooking roasts, entire cookbooks are now available which are dedicated to cooking using just a roasting tin for one pot meals.

These versatile pieces of cookware are great for easy, everyday cooking – during testing we put each tin through its paces, cooking everything from pasta to fish to curries to grain based salads to crumbles and of course, roasts.

When purchasing a roasting tin, make sure you consider what you are predominantly going to be using it for – some roasting recipes require a deeper dish, others need a roasting rack, some might need to go on the stovetop, while others need to be covered with a lid.

You’ll also want to think about how you want to present your food – some products we tested out were perfect for taking straight from the oven to the table, while others you might find are less “pretty” but cook in the oven perfectly.

Other features we considered during testing each product included; if the roaster was hand wash only or dishwasher safe, the size and depth of the tin, the cost of the product, as well as the material each dish was made from and whether these were actually non-stick.

You can trust our independent reviews. We may earn commission from some of the retailers, but we never allow this to influence selections, which are formed from real-world testing and expert advice. This revenue helps us to fund journalism across The Independent.
