    I needed a alternate to my old broiler pan. I have used the same aluminum broiler pan for 25 years and it is black with carbon. My wife said, the pan goes or I do.

    So, I saw this pan and decided I'd try it. Well, I can tell you it is easily the best cooking utensil in my arsenal. Cooks steaks and chops easy and perfect. Even heat right out to the edges. Clean up is a snap as it goes into the dishwasher. Tried a half package of bacon yesterday and it cooked more evenly than any other time I cook bacon. I hear it makes great Panini style sandwiches. $50. Get one of these. The cooking process is intuitive. NO greasing of the pan, jsut Med to Med-hi heat, plop in what you want to cook and watch it. Better grill that the outside grill.

    Is it oven proof to 500 degrees?

    The link above is a program you can use to shorten URL's.

    Wayneo. Works better than a broiler for a steak. Iagree most broilers get to 550 but that is about 1"away form the element. But it makes a meat entre better in the pan on top of the stove. My stove is glass top and the biggest element is 10". The design of the bottom of the pan traps the heat and disperses it evenly thruout.

    I will tell you this as well. Very little splattter because the item is not cooked in its own fat. or added oil

    Silver and Ljutic,

    Both of those would have to be in the Political section.

    If I can't have a steak on the grill, the recipe from Alton Brown is the next best thing. My mother-in-law owned 5 restaurants and had lots of Williams Sonoma cookware.

    I made boneless chicken thighs last nite. They cooked up evenly and perfectly. With ease. And then I pulled them form the pan, poured out the fat (90%) put them back n the pan and gave them a good shot of BBQ sauce on both sides. Covered them, turned to low and prepared zucchini. the thighs were as good as ever have had. Wife went back for seconds. Then when done with dinner I put the pan into the sink (cooled by then) and ran hot tap water on the pan. It cleared itself in a minute. Never had to use soap. Just hit it with a towel and put it away. Gotta try fish. Maybe tonight.

    Jay. What is it about yours yo do not like?

    I called my wife on her cell and asked her to pick up the set, hope they work as good for me ... $49.94/59.95 = $ 109.90 less 15% for using her Kohl's card, plus tax ... No waiting, will be cooking with them tonight ...



    Well, the wife got home with the new cook ware, $101.34 out the door with the discounts at Kohls ... The glass lids (vented and unvented) I have from other high quality cook ware will work as if they were made for them ... Now, I can hardly wait for suppertime to see how the steaks turn out ... Tomorrow morning, steak, eggs, and hash browns ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    As poor of a cook as I am, this looks like what I need.

    Wouldn't it be better if it had a lid for it?

    How did those chickens walk around without a bone in their thighs?

    I would think a cover like this glass one would be nice.

    Picture is from another item they sell.
