Is it dangerous to roast a turkey in a disposable aluminum pan?

0

The danger is in getting burned while removing a flimsy disposable aluminum pan full of hot turkey from a hot oven. Unless handled carefully, it could buckle under the weight of the turkey, sending everything smashing to the floor. Consider investing in a sturdy stainless steel, anodized aluminum, or enameled steel (speckled kind from supermarkets) roasting pan which, can be used over and over again. Figure out the size right for your oven, generally 16×13 inches. There needs to be 2 to 3 inches of air space all around a little more for grabbing handles easily. If you select a roasting pan with handles, make sure the openings are large enough to accommodate hands covered with potholders or oven mitts.
