question about a Mauviel Roaster

wekick Mar 29, 2012 07:19 PM

I was sifting through the clearance aisle at the local Marshall's and found an aluminum roasting pan that looked like this

It did not have a nonstick coating but had sort of a very thin, sparse whitish coating inside and out that scratched very easily and was very scratched. It was marked Mauviel and was clearanced for $59. I couldn't find anything about it online. Anyone have any thoughts.

    I've been shopping for them as well, and I can't find any example of Mauviel using a non-stick surface inside their pans/roasters. If it is scratched already then you should just avoid it. Period.

    If you plan to move the roasting pan from the oven to the stovetop and make sauces in it, then I'd recommend staying clear of non-stick interiors, as they tend to scratch and not hold up as well. not to mention a good number of them are not dishwasher safe.

    I'd look at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004... over the option you mentioned.

      Hi, pk:

      I believe Mauviel did line some copper pans in nonstick. A CH friend (Tim Irvine?) has one, a skillet, that he reports has held up well. Don't know about nonstick M roasters, though.

        Kaleo,

        Thanks for the heads-up. I'm a beast with my whisks and I typically stay away from non-stick anything.

        Cheers,
        pk
