    I've been looking for a stainless roasting pan for doing a full size prime rib.

    I believe a full prime rib (7 bones) is approximate 18" long?

    I already shop at the local restaurant supply stores, and have looked research online.

    It seems that 16" and less, I can find what I like, but not in a size I need.

    - heavy duty, bomb-proof and built like a tank

    - with an elevated wire rack

    - Large ergonomic handles.

    However, anything above that, and it seems I'm squarely in commercial equipment territory,

    And my only options seem to be:

    1. Aluminum

    2. Carbon steel

    I already own 2 of the larger carbon steel roasters, but they don't quite hit the marks.

    I don't like:

    - how they are prone to rusting,

    - Rusting means I can't double their use for braises

    - I have to jury rig a setup with ramekins holding up a residential oven rack to elevate my roast.

    Does anything in the 18-19" size exist that looks like the roaster above?

    What's used in a commercial setting?  A hotel pan?
    How would the meat be elevated for proper air circulation on the bottom?
