Eddingtons Chestnut Roaster - Perfect chestnuts each time,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Eddingtons Chestnut Roaster with Wooden Handle, Steel (Kitchen & Home)
Bought this as a Christmas present two years ago roughly and it is still in use.
Had been on the look out for a chestnut roaster for over the Christmas period as well as it doubling as a present for husband. Yes, I even included a bag of chestnuts with it all tied up. The only ones I found were either just for decoration or too expensive for what they were, black iron looking ones or brass coloured ones. This one is basically like a frying pan but with holes along the base plate of it and of course not non stick. If you are looking for a chestnut roaster for doing the job and not looking decorative but just putting over flames then save your money and get one of these.
This was on offer and did the job brilliantly.
What surprised me is that it is light weight, used ours over a real fire in the inglenook and it didn't smoke us out and no nasty smells of burning from the pan. Just nicely roasted chestnuts, scored the chestnuts then placed onto the pan and left to cook, well I say left to cook husband actually held the pan over the fire until they had cooked. The handle has a hole in it for being able to hang up when not in use. Easy to clean and nothing seems to get stuck to it.
An usual present for Christmas especially with the chestnuts popped in there as well. Makes a change from a fruit basket or hamper.
