We bought this for our Christmas goose this year as many other trays and pans are inadequate for a big beast which needs careful cooking.
This Gourmet pan is sheer quality, did the job perfectly and looks great as well! It is very handy to be able to use the lid for cooking as well if needed.
Good value for money, quality costs but this is well worth the price, would highly recommend.
Dispatch via Amazon was very fast and efficient.

I previously had a Jamie Oliver ceramic roasting pan with trivet, but after I smashed the first and my dog smashed the second, I decided that i needed something more robust. I chose WMF because of its reputation. This roaster is rather expensive, but it is versatile and cleans very well in my dishwasher even when there are baked on stains.
I also purchased the optional wire trivet. This makes the roaster brilliant for Sunday Lunch. The trivet can sit on the bottom of the dish to keep the meat slightly elevated, but it can also be clipped to the rim of the roaster allowing your veg to sit below the meat, this ensures tasty veg that are basted by the meat meaning that the dish does not have to be taken in and out of the oven.You can use the deep dish or the lid can be used as a shallow roaster. If using the deep dish, the lid can protect the oven from splashes, but a word of caution, if you like crispy pork crackling I suggest that you discard the lid.

If you love making a good roast and are feeling flush then this is the roasting pan for you. You could probably find something for half the price that would provide similar performance but you'd be missing the point; equipment of this quality somehow increases the enjoyment of cooking. The extra cost will also be offset somewhat by the increased durability of the product.
Note that this is a large pan so check the internal dimensions of your oven before ordering.
I would also recommend the "WMF Insert for Covered Roasting pan 8, 5L , 18/10 Stainless Steel" as a companion product as it fits perfectly and can be stood inside the pan or suspended over it.

I bought this roasting pan as I wanted something a bit bigger to hold a goose or turkey and this wonderful pan did not disappoint. I have always used cast iron but to go for something big enough to hold a large bird would simply be too heavy. This 18/10 highly polished stainless steel pan does the job very well indeed. It has an extremely thick base both in the pan itself and also the lid so it serves a dual purpose and easily goes from the oven to the hob without difficulty.
Just check though as I think the maximum temperature that you can roast at would be 180 degrees celsius but because the pan is quite thick, but also not too heavy, this should not be a problem as it retains the heat rather well unlike some cheaper stainless steel pans which as soon as you take them out of the oven they start to cool rather rapidly.
There are now a number of different WMF items in my newly created 'WMF' wish list which I will be looking to purchase over time. I couldn't be happier with my purchase and would highly recommend to anyone.
