It happens every year: People run out to the store to buy a disposable roasting pan in order to cook that turkey. This may be easy, but it’s not inexpensive. Over a period of time it will cost your more to continue buying these than if you bought your own reusable roasting pan. But not only is aluminum a toxin you shouldn’t have near your food, it also has a poor effect on the environment when everyone disposes of those roasting pans every year.
This year consider investing in a good roasting pan, or asking the family members that usually come to your house for the holidays to help chip in for one as part of your gift. I recently picked up a fabulous stainless-steel roasting pan with lid at an auction for $7! It was brand-new and I was floored to get such an amazing deal. Do you know of any deals on roasting pans right now?
