All Recipes Calphalon Giveaway Feature

Published on March 7th, 2013 | by utokia



Easter is March 31st this year so it is fast approaching!  I am making the turkey this year and since my mother-in-law who is a cook straight from heaven normally makes the turkey, I knew I had to kick my 2013 Easter turkey up a few notches!  As I pondered on how I would do this, I thought about how much I love Roasted Peruvian Chicken and then it hit me BAM POW KABOOM!  I am going to make a Peruvian Turkey, treat it very similar to my Roasted Peruvian Chicken recipe by way of flavors but with a Holiday Turkey flare!  The next step would be to find the perfect Roaster!  After all the equipment in the kitchen can sometimes be just as important as finding and combining the right ingredients in an incredible recipe!  After reading many different roaster reviews on-line I decided to try the Calphalon Nonstick 5-Piece Roaster Set since quality seemed to be the prominent response on most of the reviews I read.  Let me share with you how it worked out for me!

I love love love my Calphalon Nonstick 5-Piece Roaster Set it comes with the roasting pan and U-shaped rack along with with two lifters, and a baster that also has a tip attachment so it could also be used as an injector as well.  Of course I was way excited about that because the more flavor I can infuse the better!

I also love when products come with Life Time Warranties.  It makes you feel as though Calphalon cares about its customers and the products they manufacturer!  It also makes me more comfortable in trying new products for the first time.  Everyone wants to know that a company stands behind its’ products!!

After checking out my roaster and tools, I was ready to take on my Roasted Peruvian Turkey!!  Watch out – here comes the Easter flavor!! Calphalon Easter Roaster Giveaway

After using my Calphalon 5-Piece Non-Stick Roaster Set to make delicious Roasted Peruvian Turkey, here is my opinion of this product …

~ The product material was very sturdy – it felt and worked like quality kitchen equipment ~

~ The baster worked perfectly, it took in a lot of liquid each time so I didn’t have to baste a million times like I have in the past with other basters ~

~ The injector tip that attaches to the baster was awesome as well, my Roasted Peruvian Turkey was 11.5 pounds so the meat was thick but the injector easily penetrated the meat for optimal flavor injection ~

~ The heat seemed to circulate very well which aides in even cooking and browning ~

~ The lifters were wide and had sharp with flat ends which helped with easily transferring my Roasted Peruvian Turkey to the serving platter ~

~ I loved the size of the pan and rack because I could easily roast a small ham or huge turkey without having to purchase another roaster to accommodate size ~

~ This roaster could also work when I am entertaining and want to make a big casserole or lasagna for a huge crowd ~

~ Cleanup was easy.  I didn’t find my self having to scrub hard or soak the roaster or tools over night ~




As you enter, don’t forget after you’ve taken the 3 required steps the remaining 5 optional steps count as additional chances to WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN!
