I need to find a birthday present for my wife, a roasting pan. Don't laugh it's what she wants. Need it before the 6th of November.

Click on Shop Online. Should provide a link to a nearby dealer.

Took all of 30 seconds on google.

Yep I did that also, was hoping to find one at less than retail. You know the deal cheap, cheap.

Their garlic press is the nuts.

My wife just did a party but it's closed out now.  I doubt you would have it that quick though.

I wouldn't buy from Pampered Chef.  Almost all of their stuff is overpriced.  Start with Amazon.com and Cooking.com.  They have a huge kitchenware selection.

A few tips:

--Don't buy one with any kind of non-stick surface.  Buy one made of 18/10 or 18/8 stainless steel.
--Buy one with sturdy fixed handles that stick up (not out) from the sides.
--Buy a deep one.  3 inches at a minimum.  3 1/2 would be better.  That way, you can also use it for things like lasagna.
--Rectangular with rounded corners is best.
--Given the choice, I'd buy one with a flat rack over one with a v-rack, but that's just personal preference and not as important as the above stuff.  If it doesn't come with a rack at all but is otherwise great, go for it.  You can always find a rack separately.

I may be weird, but I never use garlic presses.  I can pop a clove with the flat of my knife, peel it, and mince it faster than I could use and wash the garlic press.  Plus, it's one more thing to have in a drawer somewhere, and if I'm chopping it myself, I can control how course or fine I want the chop.  I guess if I needed a LOT of garlic for a dish and the consistency you get from the press is acceptable for it, it would be a timesaver.
