Vertical Chicken Roaster

I wanted to show Beachlover my stand rack for roasting chicken. I bought this ages ago, probably with me for 10 years already and I have been using it to roast my chicken. So, not sure whether you can find this in the market these days because the one I have seen on the market now is the one Beachlover's got for herself.

With this, I have to use my own Pyrex pie plate, covered with foil for catching drips and easy cleaning. I also spray my rack before placing the chicken in for ease of cleaning too. I use my convection oven to roast my chicken and each time the skin of the chicken is crispy which my hubs loved. Since the chicken is standing up so the skin is crispy all over and making the chicken really tasty.

So, arm with this great tips, go buy a stand rack if you happen to see it. :)

My hubby also like crispy skin roast chicken but I've not been successful. Will try to get this stand. BTW, how long do you bake the chicken. I am using a conventional oven.

Hi Beachlover,
Yes, this is high and fit the whole chicken nicely. I think I got it for $2.99 only 10 years ago, very cheap. Next time maybe try layering two foils instead of one just in case one tears.

Hi Ling's Passion,
I bake my chicken at 350'F for 1.5 hours, then check with thermometer to makes sure the thigh temp. reaches 175-180'F. Can even broil the chicken for 2-3 mins to crisp up the skin further. Hope you find the stand!

Great tips huh BBOven! :)

I love my vertical chicken roaster, too -- and the wonderful chicken that results.

Our local paper, the San Jose Mercury News, had an article last April 18 on the inventor of this device: Dennis Spanek of Saratoga, Calif. The article itself is now in the paper's paid archive, but Dennis has lots of info on his web site:
