I made the mistake of buying this pan about 8 years ago. We have a very nice and useful set of All-Clad pots and pans, so how could their large roaster not be good?
Well, the answer is (after corroborating with their customer service people), somehow, it IS BAD.
It does a consistently POOR job of cooking any large piece of meat...turkey is what I usually cooked in this pan, and EVERY turkey I've cooked in here has been done on top...and a bloody mess below the pan line. I've used it with the flat rack they used to supply with it, and with a V-rack we have at home...same results. This year, I tried cooking the bird upside down, with the breast at the bottom, flipping it for the last hour of cooking. The result? Uncooked turkey on top AND bottom.
If it was just one year, I'd chalk it up to a faulty oven temp, or too many manhattans while cooking, or some other user error.
IF my wife wasn't a food professional who does a lot of baking work in our kitchen for jobs, and makes very sure that the oven (a Viking) is level and calibrated properly, I might say that the oven is out of whack.
BUT EVERY TURKEY I've cooked in it for the past 5 6 years? Sorry, something's wrong with the pan. I'm getting rid of it (dumping it on eBay for whatever I can get), and purchasing a pan locally.

Questions & Answers
Is this the model with the aluminum core?
I think I would actually call the Sur La Table 800 number and ask someone who is looking right at one. :)
