PROS

The porcelain coating, among other things, is the reason the model's perfectly capable of working under a 1,025-degree Fahrenheit pressure. It'll be able to hold solid cuts but won't prove too massive to make it difficult to clean and store.

CONS

The edges on the pan top are a little sharp. 

OUR VERDICT

Range Kleen BP102X is probably the best broiler pan on the list. The construction is second to none. The size is just right. The model is as durable as they come and there isn't much it won't let you cook.

Adding up to 19" x 12" x 2" in overall dimensions, the model will allow you to roast/broil the biggest cuts. The model does not contain nor produce harmful chemicals like PFOA and/or PTFE. The surface's non-stick properties are superb. 

CONS

The broiler pan doesn't always come clean from the dishwasher. 

OUR VERDICT

This Granite Ware 2-piece broiler pan/roasting pan means business. However, you don't have to be a culinary genius to put it to good use. It might just help you realize the most ambitious cooking ideas or, at the very least, feed an entire family in one sitting.

Though the broiler pan is thin, it is surprisingly rugged. There's practically no chance you'll be able to accidentally deform and its rust- and abrasive-resistance properties are excellent.

CONS

The pan feels a tad thin. 

OUR VERDICT

Whirlpool 4396923 will be able to find its place in any kitchen. It is a small investment that will likely quickly pay for itself. Though relatively basic, with this pan, you might just be able to showcase your culinary skills and treat your loved ones to wholesome homemade meals.

The enamel surface, dissimilar to its porcelain counterparts, isn't just suitable for cooking meals but also for storing them in any fridge. While it looks a little flimsy, the steel here is solid, not susceptible to warping whatsoever.

CONS

The color isn't blue as advertised but rather grayish/black. 

OUR VERDICT

Frigidaire broiler pan is easy on the pocketbook but that's not the only thing that makes the model worth a chance. With its raised bottom, the pan will let you prepare meat in its own fat and juices.

PROS

The cookware piece is able to brown better and cook much more evenly than just about any regular roaster on the market today. It will let you broil, bake, and grill. The pan is perfect for fish and vegetables, just make sure you use the grill pan directly on the barbecue.

CONS

There are no drain holes near the edges. 

OUR VERDICT

This Granite Ware 3-piece set is for people who are looking to expand their culinary horizons first and foremost. It is great for people who enjoy cooking outside. It isn't great for people who don't necessarily like cooking all that much and don't need a high-end, fancy cookware piece.

Range Kleen BP102X 2 Pc

Heavy-Duty Porcelain-Coated Black Steel

Range Kleen has produced many different broiler pans. Nevertheless, the company markets this particular tray as their best model for ovens yet. All things considered, we can definitely see where they're coming from.

BP102X is different. It is a 2-piece heavy-duty porcelain-coated black steel pan and a broiler rack simultaneously. With this model, you'll be able to hang up that old non-stick grill pan.

Construction-wise, the aforementioned porcelain-coated steel is particularly tough and more or less guaranteed to last.

That porcelain coating, among other things, is the reason the model's perfectly capable of working under a 1,025-degree Fahrenheit pressure.

As far as we're concerned, the pan's size is nothing to complain about too. Measuring 16" x 12.75" x 1.75" in overall dimensions, the model's neither too large nor too small.

It'll be able to hold bigger cuts but won't prove too massive to make it difficult to clean and store. It should fit your average oven and/or an outdoor grill just right.

Probably the only gripe we have with this tray is that the edges on the top are a tad sharp, so you have to be a little more careful than usual.

Aside from that, Range Kleen BP102X is probably the best broiler pan on the list. The construction is second to none. The size is just right. The model is as durable as they come and there isn't much it won't let you cook.

Granite Ware 2-Piece Set

Always Effective

This Granite Ware 2-piece broiler pan/roasting pan is huge. Adding up to 19" x 12" x 2" in overall dimensions, the model will allow you to roast/broil the biggest cuts and prepare enough food for an entire family at a time. But it isn't just about the pan's size (though it is probably the biggest selling point).

The carbon steel construction and the large broiler pan's porcelain surface is ridiculously tough. There's practically no cooking temperature that the model will not be able to support. It does not contain nor produce harmful chemicals like PFOA and/or PTFE. The pan's perfectly safe for use with just about every heat source there is except glass cooktops.

What's more, porcelain is a naturally non-porous, non-stick material. It can be chipped when dropped but it will never affect the cookware's effectiveness.

Sure, the product isn't without its flaws. Technically speaking, it is dishwasher safe. However, the broiler pan doesn't always come completely clean from the dishwasher, so you'll likely have to go with the occasional handwash approach afterward.

All things considered, this Granite Ware 2-piece broiler pan/roasting pan means business. However, you don't have to be a culinary genius to put it to good use. It might just help you realize the most ambitious cooking ideas or, at the very least, feed an entire family in one sitting.

Whirlpool 4396923

A Meat Whirlpool

Whirlpool 4396923 is relatively cheap and simple. However, we do not have any major issues with the product so, considering the particularly budget-friendly price, adding it to our list was an easy decision to make. Just about the only disappointing factor here is that the pan feels a little thin. But it isn't too thin and that is hardly something to complain too much about.

Its overall dimensions, measuring 16.5" x 12.5" x 1.8", are relatively standard. It wouldn't prove too large to make storage and maintenance inconvenient but you probably won't find it too small for larger cuts either.

Plus, though the model is thin, it is surprisingly rugged. There's practically no chance you'll be able to accidentally deform and its rust- and abrasive-resistance properties are excellent.

Furthermore, the broiler pan is completely dishwasher safe. You'll never have to clean it yourself. But even if you don't have a dishwasher, it shouldn't prove a huge maintenance challenge.

As far as the heat sources are concerned, you should be fine with your average oven but we wouldn't recommend using it anywhere else.

All in all, Whirlpool 4396923 will be able to find its place in any kitchen. It is a small investment that will likely quickly pay for itself. Though it is relatively basic, with this broiler pan, you might just be able to showcase your culinary skills and treat your loved ones to wholesome homemade meals.

Frigidaire Range/Stove/Oven

Meat in Its Juices

This broiler tray from Frigidaire is another addition to our list that's more on the basic side but not necessarily in a bad way. After all, we're talking about a simple pan here, there shouldn't be anything convoluted here. With less gimmicky features and a smaller brand behind it, the product is ridiculously affordable.

Now, we're not saying that there are no downsides here. It is a small one but the model's color isn't blue as advertised but rather grayish/black.

Is that a huge issue? Not necessarily, no. A much bigger issue, however, is that the model is not dishwasher safe. Again, not a huge problem since the tray is easy to clean but a problem nonetheless.

Making up for these programs is a job assigned, among other parts, to the enamel surface. Contrary to its porcelain peers, the model's surface isn't just suitable for cooking meals but also for storing them in any fridge.

Its size is another detail that we've no complaints about. Featuring 15.8" x 12.6" x 2.3" in overall dimensions, it will be able to fit your average oven to a tee.

Though it looks a little flimsy, the steel here is solid, not susceptible to warping whatsoever.

To sum it all up, Frigidaire broiler pan is easy on the pocketbook but that's not the only thing that makes the model worth a chance. With its raised bottom, the pan will let you prepare meat in its own fat and juices.

Granite Ware 3-Piece Set

Cook Inside and Outside

This Granite Ware 3-piece set isn't cheap and we can't necessarily say that it will prove a good fit for your average customer. However, we're definitely not saying the opposite either. It is a really heavy cookware piece and it does have its advantages as well as its disadvantages.

There isn't a temperature that it won't be able to handle. The pan is safe for use with all heat sources except glass cooktops. It is able to brown better and cook much more evenly than just about any regular roaster on the market today.

The model's carbon steel construction is nothing to joke about and its porcelain surface is as non-stick and practical as they come.

Again, this is a 3-piece set, so you'll be able to broil, bake, and grill. The cookware is perfect for fish and vegetables, just make sure you use the grill pan directly on the barbecue. This way, you should be able to prevent fish from flaking into the burners.

As for the model's disadvantages, aside from the relatively high price, the biggest one is that there are no drain holes near the edges. Apart from that, we don't really have any major complaints.

Wrapping it up, we would recommend this Granite Ware 3-piece set to people who are looking to expand their culinary horizons first and foremost. It is great for people who enjoy cooking outside. It isn't great for people who don't necessarily like cooking all that much and don't need a high-end, fancy cookware piece.

What Is a Broiler Pan?

A broiler pan is a simple cookware piece that just about any kitchen could benefit from. First and foremost, broiling is a great way to achieve grill-like results in the kitchen. In a nutshell, the idea here is to expose as much of the food as possible to convection and, therefore, direct heat. This way, you're able to finish the food evenly because all sides of the food item have been exposed more or less equally.

Broiling lets you quickly cook delicious food in a relatively healthy way. The grill pan part makes sure the fat drips away from food, where it is collected in the base pan below. A quality broiler pan is supposed to be able to handle high heat because it is the part that traps juice and gives meats and other food items additional crispness. The end result will be similar to grilling. However, you won't have to light charcoal and wait for the grill to heat.

A broiling method is perfect for fish, poultry, pork, beef, different roasts, and vegetables. You can use it to make juicy steaks, bacon, delicious turkey, the list goes on. With these broiler pans, very little is off-limits.

You should treat yourself once in a while with something a little less healthy though. One of these muffin pans and crepe pans might just be able to do the trick.
