Roast chiles, sweet peppers, tomatoes, onions and other fresh vegetables with the no-smoke Stovetop Chile Roaster. Perfect for heating tortillas and cooking quesadillas, roaster has removable wood handles that stay cool.
Material: Durable cast iron with stainless-steel mesh and wooden handles
Care: The stovetop chili roaster is designed for use on gas or electric stoves. Because of the wooden handles, the stovetop chile roaster is not appropriate for use on outdoor grills
We seasoned the pan as recommended in the instructions and when we first try to use it the black paint melted and the smell was pretty bad. I don't think it would be safe to eat any food that gets some of this paint. Other places have a similar item, slightly at a higher price, that appear to be made of cast iron and stainless steel grate
This little roaster does exactly what it's supposed to do. It's a little disconcerting that the paint seems to bubble off when you first put it over the flame, and it doesn't fit correctly on our stove grate, but it does its job and we use it a lot to make tortillas, salsas, roast peppers, etc. Makes the best tortillas we've had
Yes, the paint does bubble off and it's smelly the first time (put it on the grill outside!). I don't use the wooden handles because I was afraid they'd catch on fire; instead I use tongs to manuever it. Works great upside down on the grill outside to corral veggies too. It's not fancy, but it works
I have had one for a long time. Use it a LOT. Grow my own peppers. New ones are for gifts. So what if the paint comes off the first time it~s heated. After that it~s fine. A great simple tool that WORKS.
