I have a Weber Poultry Roaster that was given to me as a Christmas present, and it is one of my favorites. All the surfaces, including the Base Cup, that come in contact with food/drippings are coated, and that makes clean-up a breeze. As Chagan has pointed out, it has a tray that catches all of the drippings. The base adds stability that, in my opinion, makes it pretty easy to use. It has to be hand washed, and not to be put in the dishwasher. There are plus and minus', but for me, I think it is great..just my opinion.
