Are you looking for a roasting rack, or a roasting pan?

The rack should set more than 2" or more above the bottom (to give room for liquids without braising the bottom of your roast), and the handles should be easy to grip while wearing oven mitts.

It also shouldn't melt at high temperatures!!!

An excellent site for reviews of kitchenware of this kind is:

Cooks Illustrated: Home

and has a FREE two week trial.

Cuisinart Chef's Classic Roasting Pan - $79.95

KitchenAid Gourmet Distinctions Roasting Pan - $59.95

Not Recommended:

Farberware
Metro Roasting
Anolon

That not melting is a pretty important point

I don't think I've ever seen one with a rack 2" off the bottom of the pan. Not in use anyway. I don't think they make the kind I've seen anymore anyway. I know I saw some on ebay looking for something else.
