An Elegant, Practical Roasting Pan
Product Reviewed: Mauviel M’cook Stainless Steel Roasting Pan with Rösle Marinade Injector
I’ll admit, it took me a while to try out the Mauviel M'cook Stainless Steel Roasting Pan with Rösle Marinade Injector. I don’t host big holiday dinners requiring a full turkey or chicken, and my kids prefer pasta over pretty much any protein. Luckily, it was my family’s turn to host a monthly dinner group and Hanukkah celebration so we chose to make a brisket.
The Mauviel pan perfectly held the 7-pound brisket plus potatoes, onions and liquid. The pan was surprisingly lightweight yet sturdy, making it easy to transfer from counter to stovetop and back again after cooking. And while our brisket recipe called for low, slow braising that would result in meat that doesn’t require a sharp knife to eat, we used the Rösle injector to ensure the marinade soaked into the thick meat versus depending solely on basting every few hours. Indeed, the meat just slid off the carving knife, and we could’ve easily used just our forks to eat the beef.
Perhaps my favorite aspect of this pan was how easy it was to clean. A few scrubs with a sponge was all it took to remove some of the meat and vegetables stuck to it. I don’t have a ton of faith in my hand-washing abilities to get things squeaky clean and sanitized, but luckily the pan is also dishwasher-safe. Even the injector can be disassembled and washed in the dishwasher, though a bottle brush can be used to get to the harder-to-reach areas.
Yes, you can get less expensive or larger pans, but this pan is just right for the cook who loves to roast.
