While I do own a roasting pan, it usually sits underneath the oven at the bottom of a drawer. Piled on top of it are other baking pans, Silpats, and roasting racks, so to be honest, pulling it out is a pain. Its large size also makes it unwieldy to clean in a small sink, so I only use when it when absolutely necessary, usually for Thanksgiving turkey.
