Are roasting racks necessary? If you’re roasting pan doesn’t have one and you like using it for cooking whole poultry and bone-in meats, then a roasting rack is your ticket to great results. It elevates your food to let hot air circulate freely. This way your chicken or lamb rack cooks evenly even without turning it. It also keeps your food from being in direct contact with the pan to prevent sticking, overcooking or burning. As a bonus, it lets all juices drip down for making gravies.
