As we started preparing Thanksgiving turkeys for our November issue, we were eager to add some new hardware to our collection—namely some good roasting pans. We researched pans in a range of materials and styles, and considered those with and without racks. After weeks of turkey testing, we've put together a short list of our favorite roasting pans.

INCREDIBLE OVEN BEEF ROAST. The veggies were so good! I put the potatoes in with all the other veggies. This is the best roast I've ever made, or possibly ever had. Definitely replacing crock pot roasts. I covered the roasting pan during cooking, and used rosemary and thyme for my herbs.
A cast-iron pan is a new cook’s best friend. You can use it to cook almost anything. It is heavy and holds heat well, making it ideal for both frying and simmering. You can even use it as a roasting pan in the oven. And like a great friend, it takes very little work to keep it happy. (Photo: Karsten Moran for The New York Times)
