kela roaster

Roast, duck, fish, casseroles or Christmas goose ... – in a roaster, a variety of delicious dishes are easily prepared. A roaster is often part of the basic equipment in the kitchen and cooking in a roaster is not only reserved for winter, but is in season all year round. But which large roasting pot should now enhance the kitchen equipment depends on various factors, such as the size of the family.

Material of Roasters

Roasters can essentially be made of various materials. Cast iron, die-cast aluminium, copper, stainless steel, clay or ceramic. Each of these materials has its merits and the choice mainly depends on the intended use of the roaster. Cast iron roasters are perhaps among the most popular of their kind. They can produce some of the best cooking results, but are relatively heavy. If these cast iron roasters also have an enamel coating, they boast good non-stick properties and are particularly easy to clean. Our die-cast aluminium roasters, like the Kerros series, are equipped with the high-quality Greblon® non-stick coating. Die-cast aluminium combines many advantages: it allows for crispy frying, the food doesn’t burn or stick, the heat distribution is optimal, and the weight is lighter than cast iron roasters. These roasters meet all the requirements set by amateur and professional chefs for cookware, ensuring nothing stands in the way of daily culinary delights. Stainless steel roasters are notable for their light weight and the advantage that they are particularly low-maintenance. However, for particularly crispy frying, the die-cast aluminium or cast iron roasters do an even better job.

 

Aluminium roasters

Roasters made of aluminium share similar properties with die-cast aluminium roasters. Both are made of aluminium but are produced in different ways.

 


Different sizes and shapes

Small roasters

Small roasters typically have a volume of about 2.5 to 4 litres, like the round, small Calido roaster with a diameter of 21 centimetres. These roasters are ideal for a household of two. Thus, small roasters perfectly match smaller meal portions, as cooking in an excessively large roaster would require unnecessary liquid and, consequently, more energy.

Round roasters

Round roasters are particularly suitable for all kinds of ragouts and stews, variations of goulash, and dishes like sliced meat in a sauce. These roasters are the perfect choice for many preparations. Additionally, no adjustable roasting zone on the stove is needed for even heat distribution with round roasters.

 

Coatings and hob types

Roasters for induction hobs

Generally speaking, being induction-compatible means that the roaster, or at least the base of the pot, is made of a magnetic material, making it suitable for an induction hob. Die-cast aluminium and cast iron roasters are suitable for induction hobs. Most stainless steel roasters also come with a special base, making them induction-compatible. When preparing dishes on an induction hob, the roaster heats up very quickly and evenly from all sides.


Special features and additional uses

When buying a roaster, it is important to find the right material and the optimal size. Some roasters are also equipped with additional practical features that can contribute to a purchase decision.

Glass lid as a casserole dish

The Kerros roaster comes with a heat-resistant glass lid that can be heated in the oven up to 230°C. The glass lid can be turned upside down and used as a casserole dish. Another advantage of a glass lid is that it allows you to always have a clear view inside the roaster while cooking.


Braising pot - what is it?

Most of the time, the term 'casserole dish' is used synonymously with 'roaster'. If one were to draw a distinction, casserole dishes tend to be round or oval and typically a bit smaller. When dishes are prepared on the hob, the term 'casserole dish' is often used. Conversely, for larger cookware with a rectangular shape, the term 'roaster' is commonly employed. However, it's a fact that casserole dishes are also made from cast iron, die-cast aluminium, and stainless steel. A common trait amongst them is that due to their good heat retention, dishes can be braised energy-efficiently at low temperatures.

Differences between a roaster and other pots or pans

Size is certainly a distinct feature; roasters comfortably accommodate large roasts and poultry. Roasters heat up evenly and distribute heat optimally, ensuring dishes cook uniformly. They can also withstand high temperatures. Moreover, food in a roaster remains warm for an extended period, allowing it to be served directly at the table without transferring.

 


 

Frequently asked questions about roasters

 

What do I use a roaster for?

Roasters can be used both in the oven and as a cooking vessel on the hob. You can fry, cook, and braise in a roaster. Even bread can be baked in it. Typical dishes prepared in a roaster include: goulash, roasts, and all types of braised dishes. 

Do roasters always have lids?

Roasters from kela always come with a matching lid. For braised dishes, vegetables or meat are simmered in liquid for an extended period after frying. This method requires a lid. If the preparation requires it, the lids of the roasters can be placed in the oven. Cast iron lids can withstand higher oven temperatures than a glass lid, as is the case with the Kerros roaster. 

What is the difference between a casserole and a roaster?

There's almost no difference between a casserole dish and a roaster. Casserole dishes are typically used on the hob and are often round, sometimes oval. Roasters, on the other hand, are mostly used in the oven, and some are available in rectangular shapes. In terms of size, roasters typically have a larger volume, making them suitable, for example, for preparing poultry. Roasters are taller than casserole dishes. In terms of material and general use, roasters and casserole dishes are identical – sometimes the terms are even used synonymously.  

Why a cast iron roaster?

Cast iron roasters have always guaranteed perfectly cooked dishes bursting with flavour. These roasters can be heated to very high temperatures and offer even heat distribution. The heat is uniformly transferred to the food, which is crucial for optimal roasting results. Due to the excellent heat retention of cast iron roasters, they are ideal for serving. 

Which roaster should I buy?

The appropriate roaster depends on various factors. The following questions and considerations can influence your buying decision: Depending on the household size, what size is required? Will the roaster be used frequently or only on rare occasions? What dishes do you intend to cook in it? Cast iron roasters are almost a guarantee for perfect roasting results. They can be heated highly and are available in various shapes and sizes. However, cast iron roasters are among the heavier pieces of cookware. For those new to roasting, die-cast aluminium roasters with a non-stick coating are an intriguing choice. These are lighter in weight, and the non-stick coating ensures that food doesn't stick or burn. 

How do I clean cast iron roasters?

Let the roaster cool down before cleaning; it's vital to avoid extreme temperature fluctuations. Once the roaster has cooled, it can be cleaned with warm soapy water, rinsed and dried thoroughly. When cleaning, please avoid abrasive detergents and scratchy pot-cleaning brushes and sponges. Brushes and sponges made from nylon fibres are recommended. Stubborn food residues can be gently loosened by soaking in hot water.
