There were 35 customer comments and 27 answered questions on Amazon for the Norpro KRONA Stainless Steel 12 Quart Multi Roaster.

The Norpro KRONA Stainless Steel 12 Quart Multi Roaster has a nice lid. This is definitely an asset, as a lot of the roasters I've reviewed did not come with lids much to the dismay of customers. This lid will not only keep in moisture, but it can be used on a burner as a saute pan. Simply place the lid over the burners and saute just like you would using a saute pan. The question has been asked if the lid fits tight and the answer is yes, the lid fits tightly on the roaster.
Wash By Hand
The instructions for the Norpro KRONA Stainless Steel 12 Quart Multi Roaster are to wash it by hand in hot and soapy water. If you are used to washing all of your dishes in the dishwasher, then this is a slight drawback. This roaster does, however, wash up easily according to customers who have cooked with it.
Holds Up Well In High Heat
The Norpro KRONA Stainless Steel 12 Quart Multi Roaster holds up great in high heat according to customers who have cooked with it. Some have reported that it held up to prolonged 500 degree heat for over a half an hour with no signs of warping. Stainless steel is a durable metal that does well in high heat.
Stainless steel is prized for its shiny appearance. The Norpro KRONA Stainless Steel 12 Quart Multi Roaster is popular for its nice looks. When you shine up stainless steel, you can even see yourself in it. This would make a great gift for a wedding or shower. It would also make a great gift for yourself if you enjoy the look of stainless steel as much as I do.
Durable and Made to Last
I read of customers who said they have been using this roaster for the last 20 years. Some have traditions of how turkeys will be cooked in it and how they will lay out the carved turkey on the lid. This is not a roaster that should wear out on you. It has proven itself and stood up against the test of time according to customers. Some who paid a large amount years ago, commented on how it was worth every penny because it gave them so many years of use with more years to come.
The Norpro KRONA Stainless Steel 12 Quart Multi Roaster is a high end roaster with a high price tag. It is made of stainless steel which is pricier than cheaper metals. Most people were happy with what they got for the price. If you are looking for a really nice high end gift for special newlyweds in your circle of family and friends, I think this would be a great choice. I noticed in the comments left on Amazon, that even people who thought the price of this roaster was too high, understood that they were getting quality. This was a typical comment on the price,
"I do think the price is a bit high, but the quality and functionality is fantastic."
One of the best assets of this pan is the large size. Customers liked that they could cook for a large family get together with the Norpro KRONA Stainless Steel 12 Quart Multi Roaster. The dimensions are 17.8 x 12 x 8 inches with a weight of 11 pounds. Some people commented to be prepared to have a large storage space. One person recommended storing it in your oven if you don't have a large enough shelf to store it on. I thought this customer said it well by simply saying,
"Look, this is a large roasting pan. Why would you want one? To roast large things. What is it good for? Roasting large things. It's very large, so you need room to store it."
The Norpro KRONA Stainless Steel 12 Quart Multi Roaster has a large 12 quart capacity for cooking food. It comes with a lid, which is an asset, since a lot of the roasters do not come with lids. The lid can also be used as a saute pan. A disadvantage is that you have to wash it by hand. It is not machine washable. This roaster holds up very well in high heat.
The stainless steel body is durable and also attractive to look at if you like shiny and sleek looking things. The Norpro KRONA Stainless Steel 12 Quart Multi Roaster is made to last.
