My kitchen is running out of space so i don't want to buy a roasting pan or another baking sheet if i don't have to. Will my saute pan do for now? The oven's upper rack is a bit rusty/dirty so i'd like to use a lid on the lower rack so the dust/dirt doesn't somehow end up in my food. ( I got a vintage oven ).

So will the saute pan do the trick?
Is it safe to roast with the lid on? Will the lid affect cooking times?

I usually roast chicken thighs/breasts and veggies at 425 for about 20-25 min in a baking sheet with parchment paper and I'd like to start using both racks at the same time now instead of just the upper.

I also own a large cast iron skillet and an enamel dutch oven ( i would hate roasting in those because of the heavy weight ).

    Yes you can, the entire pan is SS Steel so there is no problem with putting it in the oven.
    The lid is fine but will reduce browning.
