    I picked this up at goodwill and thought I might use it for camping. I'm testing recipes at home with my camping stove. I tried bread or bagel pizzas. Bagel pizzas won, but there is a weird aftertaste. I think the lid on the skillet worked better than on the rack in the pot.

    What else can I use it for? I can't justify bringing it for just pizzas?

    Or maybe you just know what it is called. I can start digging if I knew the name.

    Looks like a Oval Roasting Pan to me. We use them for Ham's.

    Might work as an oven. Heat control would be ridiculous because it's such thin metal, and you'd have to allow extra time as you wouldn't be able to preheat. But with the rack in the bottom you wouldn't have to worry too much about scorching. It might work even better sitting on the griddle.

    I'll have to play around with it in my back yard to see if I'll bring it on any trips. Thanks everyone.

    Lol, i bought it so i have to use it!
    Put water or beer under the rack and do chicken or ribs! Im guessing the weird aftertaste is the pot overheating, and kind of burning, and thats getting into your food. I wouldn't bake in it

    Thought I found a gem. The rack is what sold me. Oh well. On the bright side when I went back to goodwill to buy a larger one. I found an big deep stainless steel pan with lid that I needed for my camp kitchen. Kirkland brand.

    It's a poultry roaster, but you could also make a stew, pot roast with veggies, or meatloaf in it over charcoal. Pretty much any high moisture food. You'll have to set it on a stand and experiment with the coals to learn heat control...

    +2 roast chickens if it's the small one, or turkey with the large. Or roast beef or pork roast. Or plant flowers in it and use the top as a frisbee.

    As stated above is is called a roasting pan, we have a couple here at home but do not take them on camping trips.
    If the food cooked in it has a bad aftertaste, could be the reason that is was at a 2 nd hand store. No telling what it was used for that causes the bad taste and could be anything
