 I trademarked my cooking invention
The WaterBroiler®-WaterRoaster™ Pan
after I found that a cup and a half of Cold
Tap Water poured into my 18/8 Stainless Steel
prototype pan before broiling and roasting
had profound cleaning and taste benefits.

Fear not, the water will not boil or steam the food.
I will explain why the water does not boil in the time
it takes to broil in my inventive pan in a moment.

While Water is beneficial and is Secret # 3, the
design of the pan and rack are most important.

The Design Secrets of my unique
Pan and Rack will be revealed in a moment
which make my pan, as one customer wrote,
"1000 times better than the broiler pan
that came free with my oven."

CAUTION:  Don't think that pouring water in your
hateful broiler pan will prevent the smoke, splatter,
flare-ups and scrubbing. It won't. I'll explain why later.

RBTemp posted his review at


"What a wonderful invention!
I never used my broiler because I hated the smoke,
flare-ups, and worst of all...cleaning the pan afterwards!
Now that I have a WaterBroiler, I use my broiler all the
time! No smoke, no flare-ups, and clean-up is too easy!
  Your broiler is is one of the best tools you have to cook,
 but most of us never use it! With this pan you will use
it a lot! I LOVE this pan! Awesome results with the
easiest clean-up ever! Lobster tails to die for, with zero
  mess! I have purchased 3 of these awesome pans and
I plan to buy more as they make wonderful gifts. My hats
off to Mr. Smithson and The Drannan WaterBroiler!!"

Scientist Lee Drannan Smithson and his 2136th Roasted Chicken Cooked on his WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan. That's about one chicken a week for 45 years!
Chef Pierre Franey, The New York Times, wrote,
"Recently I received an excellent piece of equipment
for broiling that works wonderfully, not only for
broiling, but for a variety of things. It's called a
WaterBroiler pan and rack...it worked perfectly.
  The fat did not burn and the pan,
which is round with sloping curved sides and
  no crevices to catch food, was simple to clean."

My WaterBroiler Pan AND my Forkula Tongs
inventions each
made The New York Times
on separate occasions, quite a feat for a
Broiler-Roaster Pan AND a pair of Tongs.

In a moment, I will explain

    Yes, even when broiling hamburgers.
    Even when broiling sausage patties.
    Even when broiling salmon.
    Even when broiling steaks.
    Even when broiling pork chops.

    Yes, even when roasting a chicken.
    Even when roasting a prime rib roast.
    Even when roasting an 11 pound turkey.
    Even when roasting a rack of lamb.

    Even when baking half a ham.

It takes a lot of explanation To Prove
ALL my incredibile claims are Absolutely True
And that My Inventive Broiler-Roaster Pan
Truly is a Monumental Cooking Breakthrough.

I will give you the information needed To Prove that
This Amazing Pan is an Absolute Must in Your Kitchen.

The curious cooks who were eager to learn something
 new about cooking, read the complete explanation and
bought the pan, and many wrote, "I can't wait to get it."

Over 1000 cooks, a few tired husbands who
are forced to do the pots and pans, and
a few chefs have written to tell me they LOVE it,
to Praise It, and to Thank me for Inventing it.

  I have never paid a penny or given any compensation
for any endorsement. I didn't need to.  The buyers
I have quoted with names have given me permission
to use their quotes without compensation.

Based upon quotes from users, my pan
truly is the most highly pr
aised, most loved
cooking pan ever created.

Please keep reading, and I believe you will be
convinced my pan will be the most useful and
the most lovable cooking pan in your kitchen,
and there is a very good chance you will be
writing soon to thank me for inventing it.

Before I can convince you that
My Simple Looking Pan is The Solution to
ALL Your Broiling and Roasting Problems,
that has eluded and hoodwinked cooks, chefs,
and food authorities
for over a 100 years.

Antiquated Broiler Pans like this
 are ill-conceived and are

In 1967 I made a shocking cooking discovery that
changed my life and the life of thousands of cooks.

By simply observing hamburgers broil on the
hateful broiler pan that came free with my oven,
I discovered that ALL Broiling and Roasting Problems
are caused
by ill-conceived broiler-roaster pans
like those in your kitchen right now.

Broiled foods, even hamburgers, and roasted foods,
even fatty ducks,
are totally innocent. 
Virtually none of the hateful smoke, splatter,
and flare-ups
comes from the food itself. 

ALL the smoke, splatter, flare-ups and
resulting scrubbing come

from dripping that touch

Virtually ALL broiler-roaster pans foisted upon
  American Cooks for
the past 100 plus years
are ILL-CONCEIVED, and the harm those

hateful pans have caused is incalculable. 

The perforated sheet metal rack on
typical broiler pans is insane.

Few drippings drip through.
Most of the drippings puddle on those

cheap, sheet metal racks to get HOT
and FRY and SIZZLE and SMOKE
  SPLATTER and BURN into
impossible to 
SCRUB-OFF Black Char.

Broiler-Roaster Pans made of 'good' heat conducting
metals like aluminum, porcelain steel, and clad metals
ill-conceived because they get HOT quickly
and they smoke, splatter,
and burn the drippings.

A Non-Stick Broiler Pan is NOT the Solution. 
In fact, it is Another Problem.

"Non-stick" broiler pans coated with Teflon
and similar fluoropolymers should be against
the law. They emit toxic fumes when heated 

to about 550 degrees which is easy to do
under 2000 degree broiling elements.

The toxic fumes can make you sick with
Polymer Fume Fever and can even kill
pet birds in or near your kitchen.
For safety, don't use them.

My Shocking Discoveries that
The Old-Style Broiler Pan is
The Broiling Culprit and
Typical Roasting Pans
(even those very expensive ones)

Are The Roasting Culprit

Led to my invention of
The WaterBroiler®-WaterRoaster™ Pan,
The Amazing Pan Guaranteed to Solve All

Revolutionary 18/8 Stainless Steel WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan AND Wire Rack "Our salmon was more moist and tastier than ever."
Do yourself a favor and turn those
  hateful b
roiler-roaster pans in
your kitchen into something


Replace those hateful pans with my
WaterBroiler®-WaterRoaster™ Pan
and ALL your broiling and roasting
problems disappear as if by Magic.

One customer wrote, "Your Pan IS Magic."

Actually, it is just a little
Science and a Lot of Common Sense.
I will explain it all as you keep reading.

You are in for a wonderful cooking surprise
when you broil hamburgers or roast a chicken
without setting off your smoke alarm,
without splattering your oven,
without flare-ups,  without bake-ons,
without scrubbing anything.

 In fact, the WaterBroiler Pan and Rack
CLEANS in about 37 seconds with a
soft dishbrush and hot soapy water.
It even fits IN your dishwasher.

Robert Hays from Ohio wrote:
"For the tired husband who is forced
to do the pots and pans, it's the
greatest invention since the wheel.
It's amazing what a great job it does, and
 how very easy it is to clean.  I can't help
but feel that any household that hasn't
your WaterBroiler is missing a real bet. I
cheer you everytime I do the pots and pans."

 Another customer wrote;

"It's the greatest cooking invention
since the stove."

And, who am I, just the inventor, to disagree?

After I invented the WaterBroiler Pan,
I invented the Forkula Tongs to instantly turn
broiled food cooked on my WaterBroiler Pan
while the pan was still UNDER the oven broiler.

As you can see, it is also a wonderful BBQ
Tool for turning grilled food.  I'm turning
a hamburger on a Weber Grill.

Pancake spatulas shoud NEVER be used
  to turn grilled hamburgers because they
shave off the sagging meat into the fire and
you wind up chasing the hamburgers.

Tens of thousands of Happy Grill Chefs now use
The Forkula as a
stand-alone BBQ Tool.

More about the Forkula in a moment.

WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan and Forkula Tongs Make Cooking a Total Pleasure... No More Smoke. No More Splatter. No More Flare-ups. And No More Scrubbing Ever. No More Chasing Burgers or Fish with a Pancake Spatula.
The WaterBroiler® - WaterRoasterPan -
Forkula Tongs SET.

The Pan, The Rack, and The EZ Turning Tongs
are made of
100% 18/8 Stainless Steel
to last for generations.

All three pieces are dishwasher safe.

"This is to advise that I am in receipt of your new
WaterBroiler and in particular, to tell you that
after only 6 uses, I am DELIGHTED with it.
The WaterBroiler is all that yu say it is,
in your advertisements, and even more.

You will be receiving eight new orders within the week,
   from friends and family, as they have either seen the
 item, or heard me rave so about it.  It is so nice
to be able to get  one's money's worth these days!
  Thank you for coming up  with this new idea......
it looks lovely, washes so easily, and no  longer do
  I splatter my oven."  Patricia Nugent, California.

"I can't believe it. The best results I've ever
had, and I'm a darned good cook. I don't know
how I've lived this long without this pan.
Not a word of hype or exaggeration.
I've never seen anything to beat this."

Mrs. O'Brien. Boca Raton, Florida

The WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan is
The Ideal Size for singles, couples, and
small households, and yet, it will hold
six hamburgers, a rib roast for 8 hardy
eaters, half-a-ham for a crowd, a
whole beef tenderloin cut into 2 pieces,
or a 10 or 11 pound turkey.

The 12 inch round pan, not including handles,
is perfectly sized to fit IN your divided sink,
IN your dishrack, & IN your dishwasher. 

When you are roasting, it leaves room in your oven
to roast the vegetables or bake the potatoes.

The stainless wire rack cleans in about 27 seconds,
and the stainless drip pan cleans in about 10 seconds
with a soft dish brush and hot soapy water.
No abrasive pads are ever needed.

BOTH pieces are blessedly dishwasher safe
although Ethel Seaman from New York wrote,
"It is no more trouble to clean than a dinner plate."

Now Broiling and Roasting is not
only trouble-free, it is now the
most fat-free way you can cook.

"Used 11 times the first week--
Helps my diet."

Use the WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan
instead of using those hateful broiler-roaster-
frying pans in your kitchen,  and you will
automatically reduce your fat intake by an
estimated 1/2 ounce each time you use it.

You will also SAVE an estimated 4 minutes
of scrubbing every time you cook with it.

Use my pan 4 times a week for 45 years,
and you will use it 9,360 times.

will automatically reduce your fat intake
by 292 pounds.
That's 934,400 Fat Calories!
You will Save 624 Hours of Kitchen Drudgery.

And you can buy this life-time of cooking
pleasure and healthy eating for less
than one good meal in a fine restaurant.
Imagine that.

"Fantastic product.  Cooked the best hamburgers ever."

"Cooked the best roast chicken we have ever eaten."

"My husband LOVES the pan. Steaks were great."

"I cooked four Cornish game hens for Christmas.
We've never tasted juicier poultry."

“I'm always skeptical of claims of wondrous things, but
this WaterBroiler is truly amazing.  I still can't get
  over the lack of smoke & noise.
And, I'm finding our
food is so much juicier!  I’m in awe every time
I use my WaterBroiler Pan.”  Gail Douglas, NY

Here's an email I received just a few weeks ago which
explains why I am not selling millions of  pans a year
and why I am not pushing Bill Gates into Second Place.

My pan looks so simple, and all my many claims sound so
unbelievable, that most cooks will pass it by because they
won't take the 10 minutes necessary to read exactly WHY my
  pan truly is the First Properly Designed Broiler-Roaster Pan
and why it truly is a Monumental Cooking Breakthrough.

" Hi Lee:  Just wanted to drop you a note.
I am a 61 year old meat and potato guy
who lives in an apartment building and
my smoke alarm goes off 3-4 times a week
whenever I am broiling meat or chicken etc.
I do not write testimonials but in your case I had to.

I have had your WaterBroiler for just over a week
and while I honestly did NOT BELIEVE what you
  stated on your website, I bought it and  figured
that I have wasted more than $50 bucks
in the past so why not give it try. Why does
the world not know about your product?????
No smoke alarm in a week, the food tastes
great and cooks just as fast or faster.
And the cleanup is simply amazing.
Everything you said was TRUE, and I am now a
big fan who will certainly tell anyone I know
about this great product. Thanks."  Phil Giller, NY

"It is a joy to broil without smoking up the kitchen
or having to clean the oven. Never again will I use
my old oven broiler pan.” 
Adelaide Hauser, Virginia

"No broiler smoke in the kitchen again last night.
My wife, who was skeptical of my purchase, says,
'This pan is just GREAT!
One of our best kitchen purchases.'
  Best regards, Bryan, Lake Oswego, Oregon"

"My wife's favorite pan."

"Got it!  Used it!  Cleaned it!  Loved it!
  Worth every penny."

"Excellent time saving, taste enhancing product."

"Wonderful find! This beats all!  Try it, you'll LOVE IT!"

"WaterBroiler Pan is fantastic, a must have item."

"Dayton inventor's
WaterBroiler and Forkula
make life easier for home cooks.

Ann Heller, Dayton Daily News

"Lee Drannan Smithson calls himself a scientist.
An inventor. Occasional caterer.
Add to that minimalist and iconoclast -- for in
his kitchen the former chemist smashes the
prevailing wisdom of home cooks. Home is the
1869 Bossler Mansion in St. Anne's Hill,
a 30-room house that would have had
servants to do the cooking when it was built.
Smithson, a bachelor, is the ultimate quick cook.
His idea of cooking is to unwrap the meat, put it
  on the pan, and tuck it in the oven. He doesn't

even season the meat until after it has cooked.
"It takes me all of three minutes," he says.
"And that includes cleaning the pan."
Make that The Pan. For the pan that he designed,
trademarked and has been selling for 30 years is
the secret to his success in the kitchen."  

Here's How to Use and Clean the
WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan

It couldn't be easier.

Use the Pan UNDER your oven broiler
when broiling and IN your 350 degree
oven when roasting.

(1) Pour 1½ cups of Cold Tap Water into the
pan before broiling and roasting to make the
drip pan clean like a breeze in about 10 seconds.

The water also has a profound taste benefit.
The water evaporates just enough to add a
beneficial amount of moisture to the oven to
keep the food very juicy and succulent without
steaming the food.  I will explain why the
water does NOT boil in my pan, in a moment.

(2) Place the rack on TOP of the pan and the food
you want to Broil or Roast on TOP of the rack.

(3) Broil under your oven broiler or Roast in your
350 degree o
ven, the ideal roasting temperature.

You can easily CLEAN the Pan AND Rack in about
37 Seconds with a soft dish brush or dish cloth
and hot soapy water with No Scrubbing Ever.
It even fits IN your divided sink, IN your dishrack,
and IN your dishwasher.  And, it is so beautiful,
you can hang it on your pot rack for easy access.

Roasting at 500 degrees to "seal in the juices" is an
ill-founded m
yth.  The truth:  Roasting at a High
cooks out the juices and burns the
drippings into carcinogens when you roast on
ill-conceived roasting pans made of "good" heat
conducting metals which quickly get HOT.

Broiling and Roasting on my WaterBroiler-
WaterRoaster Pan totally eliminates the
carcinogenic smoke and burned drippings.

I have cooked thousands of hamburgers on my
WaterBroiler Pan and I ALWAYS use ground chuck
which is 80% lean and 20% Fat.  I never use
"hamburger" because it is too fat and it is not
cost effective.  I never use ground sirloin because
it is too lean and makes a tough hamburger
because there is no fat to cook out.

When using my WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan,
virtually all the fat cooks out and instantly drops
away from the meat into the water making cooking
on my pan the most fat-free way you can cook.

I've roasted over 2000 chickens on my pan at 350
degrees, and they turned out perfectly.  Scores of
customers have written to tell me my pan makes
the juiciest roasted chicken they have ever tasted.

Here's How I Invented the
WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan
To Be Smoke-Free, Splatter-Free,
Flare-up-Free, and Scrub-Free and
Why it Truly Does Work Wonders.

Secret 1.

Of course, the ill-conceived perforated sheet
metal rack had to go.

18/8 Stainless Steel WIRE Rack is ESSENTIAL
to allow ALL the drippings to instantly DROP through
rack into the drip pan.  The rack is made of 18/8
Stainless Steel round rods separated by 1/2 inch spaces.
I calculated that the rack is 13% metal and 87% air
spaces.  Absolutely no smoke, no splatter, no flare-ups,
and no bake-ons come from this wire rack since it is
impossible for drippings to puddle and burn on this wire
rack like they do on ill-conceived broiler pans with
perforated sheet metal racks with a few "drip" holes.

The Unbendable, 18/8 Stainless Steel Wire Rack
is electropolished to a smooth mirror finish to impart an
easy-cleaning "non-sticking quality" to the rack without
the hazard of Teflon or non-stick fluororesins which start
to decompose and emit toxic fumes at about 550 degrees F.

Never use a non-stick broiler pan under your oven broiler
because of toxic fumes. 
Never use a non-stick roasting pan
in a 500 degree oven or you risk getting 'Polymer Fume Fever'
and you risk killing pet birds in your kitchen.

Secret 2.

Of course, "good" heat conducting metal
had to go.

The 18/8 Stainless Steel Drip Pan
is ESSENTIAL because 18/8 Stainless is a

"poor heat conductor," the perfect metal for a
broiler-roaster pan and wire rack that works better
when it does NOT quickly get hot.  As far as I know,
a broiler-roaster pan is the only piece of cookware
that does not need to get hot to cook perfectly.
If you think of another one, let me know.

Of course, The Pan and Rack get hot, but not as hot as
as a pan made of "good" heat conducting metals
like aluminum, porcelain steel, copper, or "clad" metals.

The drip pan is the highest quality, most beautiful
broiler drip pan ever created.  It is
highly polished
a heat reflecting, easy cleaning mirror finish. It is
a beautiful pan you will be proud to hang on your pot rack
and even take to your table when you use the pan without
the rack as a paella pan or a gratin pan.

Of course, the hateful rectangular pan that won't
even fit
in a divided sink or dishwasher had to go.

The pan is round for several reasons.  No hard to clean
corners.  It is perfectly sized to fit IN divided sinks, to
fit IN a dish rack, to fit IN a dishwasher.  It also leaves
room in the oven to cook other things.   And, this round
sturdy pan will NOT warp like many cheap broiler pans.

Secret 3.

Cold Tap Water is ESSENTIAL.  I found that a
cup and a half of Cold Tap Water poured into my
18/8 Stainless Steel drip pan before broiling and
roasting captured the drippings, prevented sticking,
and made the drip pan clean like a breeze in about
10 seconds with a soft dish brush and hot soapy water.

The water also has a very beneficial taste benefit when
broiling and a profound taste benefit when roasting.

The water evaporates just enough to add a
beneficial amount of
moisture to the oven to
keep the food very juicy and succulent.
The Pan is a self-controlled, self-basting
pan, actually much better than hand
basting with the drippings. Opening an oven door
several times to hand-baste is a hassle, and it lets
heat out of the oven several times so the temperature
goes up and down which is not conducive to proper roasting.  

Fear not, the water will not boil in the time
it takes to broil or
until after 2 hours in a
350 degree oven.  Here's why.

Water has a "high specific heat" which means
it takes more heat to heat water than most other
substances.  That is the scientific basis for the
expression, "A watched pot never boils."

The "poor heat conduction" of the 18/8 Stainless
Steel drip pan, and the 
heat reflecting mirror finish
of the pan also helps keep the
water below boiling.
When roasting a 10 or 11 pound turkey or half-a-ham
that takes two and
a half hours, add another cup of
cold water to the drip pan after one and a half 
to keep the water below the boiling point.

CAUTION:  Don't think that pouring water into
old broiler pan will accomplish the same
thing.  It won't.

After I started advertising and selling my
WaterBroiler Pan in 1975, some clueless broiler
pan fabricators started advising that placing water
in their hateful broiler pans would help prevent
broiler pan smoke, splatter, and scrubbing.
That is a misleading statement since it is a
false claim.

Yes, water will make their drip pans easier to
clean, BUT the water will NOT prevent the smoke,
and splatter and flare-ups and scrubbing that
come from drippings that puddle on their cheap,
ill-conceived perforated sheet metal racks.

Virtually ALL broiling problems
come from
drippings that puddle on ill-conceived,
perforated sheet metal racks on old style
broiler pans so water does NOT prevent those
hateful problems.

"The ease of cleaning is wonderful, and I
enjoy not having grease
splatered all over
the broiling area."  Paul Gorsuch, M.D.,Texas

"Why are you keeping this
wonderful product such a secret?"

Since my WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan
requires  a ton of explanation to overcome the
  rampant misconceptions about broiling and
roasting caused by hundreds of millions of
ill-conceived, hateful broiler-roaster pans
like those in every kitchen in America,
  I am the only source in the world for
my WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan.

Because my pan works so well that it sounds
too good to be true, I have sold it for over
38 years with the most unusual guarantee!


You can test my pan in your own kitchen
every day for a year
without risking one cent.
There is only one condition.
It must be returned in USED Condition
because after you have used it,
tasted the food cooked on it, and
after you have cleaned it, I know
you won't give it up for anything.

Don't you wish everything you bought was
good enough to carry a guarantee like that?

"Fantastic product. Cooked the best hamburgers ever."
With WaterBroiler Pan Order

I'll include my Free 24 page Recipe Booklet of fast, easy,
and Delicious Recipes and Cooking Tips with Your
 WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan order.

Free Recipe Booklet with every WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan.
Many customers have told me my Recipes and Cooking
are worth the price of the pan.  I've even included a
few of my
favorite original recipes that do not use my pan.

My original bread pudding recipe is to die for.

The secret of my bread pudding is the bread...and it
is NOT
stale bread! I bake the bread in the microwave oven.
It takes 6 minutes to bake a loaf.

My original Tortilla Soup recipe which takes 15 minutes
to make
is to die for.  It was inspired by a vacation in Mexico
City in 1974. It uses a rarely used spice that is readily available
that "makes the soup."  I have never seen another Tortilla
Soup recipe that uses this spice.  I have never seen a recipe
for a soup that uses this spice.  

My original Ice Cream Recipe is to die for. It uses just
ingredients, and you can make it in 2 minutes (not
including freezing time).  No kidding.

Well, actually, one of the "ingredients" comes in a jar and
more than one ingredient is listed. Mix the contents of the
jar with one quart of half-and-half and freeze. That's it.
No eggs. No cooking.  I guarantee you can't resist
third servings!

Now, do you see why many customers tell me my recipes
and cooking tips are worth the price of the pan?

The water and flavorful drippings may be
to make a delicious sauce or gravy.

Simply pour the water and drippings into a 4-cup
measuring cup. The fat floats for easy removal
a ladle. Some cooks have written that they
use chicken
broth or wine in the pan to get a
"headstart" on making
sauce or gravy, however,
the drippings from a roasted chicken
a delicious gravy.

When chilled, the water and drippings
turn to
"chicken jello" which proves that a lot of flavor
from the chicken and chicken bones drops into
the water.
Since the water evaporates somewhat
when roasting, it is already reduced.

Here's My Second
Surprising Cooking Invention

After inventing The WaterBroiler Pan, I invented
the Forkula Tongs which will allow you to instantly
turn broiled food cooked on  my WaterBroiler Pan
while The Pan is still under your oven broiler.

I'm instantly turning a hamburger above on
a Weber Grill with the Forkula Tongs.
I've sold tens of thousands of Forkula Tongs
as a stand-alone BBQ Tool for the outdoor grill.

However, I invented the Forkula to instantly turn
broiled food cooked on my WaterBroiler Pan
while the pan is still under the oven broler.
You don't have to pull the pan out from under
your oven broiler to instantly turn the food.

No More Chasing Hamburgers
with a pancake spatula.

Since the WaterBroiler Pan Rack sets on top of the
pan, you will risk chasing the food off the rack
if you use a spatula designed to turn pancakes.

"It is a new experience to turn broiled food without

having to pull the pan out from under the broiler."

I consider the Forkula a necessity to instantly turn
hamburgers, thin sausage patties for breakfast
(a pound fits on the pan), fragile fish and even
broiled onion slices for your hamburgers without
the onion falling apart.


The  Forkula is made of 100%
18/8  Stainless Steel
to last a lifetime.

It's dishwasher safe.
It is 16" long to keep
your hand away from the heat.

I highly recommend you add the Forkula Tongs to
your order because they work so well with the pan.

"The Forkula is a way-cool invention.
Thanks for the WONDER-FULL WaterBroiler!
As advertised--easy cleanup. LOVE IT!"


There are over 100 types of Stainless Steel...
are cheap, some are expensive.
What's the difference?

Lets start with the definition of 'Stainless Steel.'
Stainless Steel is ANY Iron based alloy
that contains at least 11% Chromium.

Stainless Steel that meets this MINIMUM definition is
NOT good for
cookware since it is reactive to acidic foods.

By definition, 18/8 stainless steel is an iron based alloy
that contains at least, 18% Chromium and 8% Nickel.

By definition, 18/10 stainless steel is an iron based alloy

that contains at least 18% Chromium and 10% Nickel.

Both 18/8 and 18/10 'stainless steels' are considered
the BEST Stainless Steels
for cookware. The small 2%
difference in nickel content
makes no practical difference.

The high nickel content of 18/8 and 18/10 Stainless Steel
makes the metals
impervious to acidic foods, more durable,
and allows the metals to be easily
polished to a smooth,
mirror finish for easy cleaning. These two types of
steels are also know as Type 304 OR 'surgical stainless steels."


 Here's a quick test you can perform to determine
 if  your cookware is made of
cheap stainless steel
OR expensive 18/8 or 18/10 Stainless Steel.

A magnet will STICK to cheap stainless steel.
A magnet will NOT STICK
to expensive
18/8 or 18/10 Stainless Steel.

Here's an easy way to remember the Magnet Test.

"If a magnet sticks, you got stuck with cheap
stainless steel."

My pan, my rack, and my tongs are made of expensive
18/8 Stainless Steel.  A magnet will not stick.

I trust I have convinced you that you can now
Broil Hamburgers or Roast a Chicken with

  • No More Smoke in Your Kitchen
  • No More Noisy Exhaust Hood Needed
  • No More Splatters in Your Oven
  • No More Broiler Pan Flare-ups or Fires
  • No More Impossible to Scrub-Off Black Char
  • No More Broiler-Roaster Pan Scrubbing...Ever.

You Owe it to Yourself to try my pan in your kitchen
since you can do so without risking one cent.


You can test my pan in your own kitchen
every day for a year
without risking one cent.
 I'll even pay the postage both ways if you return it.

There is one condition.
It must be returned in USED Condition
because after you have used it, tasted the food
cooked on it, and after you have cleaned it,
I know you won't give it up for anything.

The WaterBroiler -WaterRoaster Pan - Forkula Tongs SET.
The Pan, The Rack, and the Tongs are made of
100% 18/8 Stainless Steel to last for generations.
All three pieces are dishwasher safe.

While the pan and tongs can be purchased separately,
I highly recommend the Forkula to go along with your
 WaterBroiler Pan because the Forkula makes turning
 of broiled food so quick and easy and

WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan/Forkula Tongs
is $65 plus just $7.75 postage.

The WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan by itself is
 $50 plus $7.75 Postage.

The Forkula Tongs are $15.00 plus
$2.21 postage if ordered without the pan.

Shipping by Priority Mail is just $7.75 anywhere in
the U.S.A., including Hawaii and Alaska.

Order more than one pan or more than one set
(the set for $65 makes the perfect wedding gift)
and shipping is just $7.75 for the entire
shipment if shipped to the same address
in the United States.

Shipments from Dayton Ohio to Canada
by International First Class Mail

have dramatically risen in cost this year (2013) from
about $15 to $22.10 for a 3 pound 5 ounce package.
  For simplicity, I absorbed the additional cost
over my charge of $7.75 shipping in the past,
but the cost of shipping is now so much,
I have to charge the actual cost of $22.10.

Since my website is set
up to charge all buyers $7.75 for shipping a
WaterBroiler Pan with free shipping of the Forkula when
ordered at the same time, Canadian buyers will be
invoiced the additional actual shipping charge of
$14.35 after paying the automatic $7.75
shipping when you check out.  Shipping of
more than One WaterBroiler Pan/Forkula Tongs
Sets may cost more.  Two sets can be shipped to
Canada for $38.96.  E-Mail me for actual
shipping costs if you order more than two sets.

Shipping to other countries will be invoiced
the actual shipping charge.


The Total Shipping charge is just $7.75
for shipments to the U.S.A.
no matter
how many WaterBroiler Pans you order.

Shipping of the first pan costs $7.75.
Shipping of additional pans shipped at the same
  time to the
same address in the U.S.A. is FREE.

Shipping of the Forkula Tongs, shipped at the
same time with the WaterBroiler Pan is Free.


Just tell us what to write and how to sign 'your note.'

"I have endeared myself to many people by sending the
WaterBroiler Pan as a gift.  I find it appreciated more than
any pretty but not useful gift."    Ethel Seaman,  New York

For many years, my pans, racks, and tongs were
proudly made in Ohio and Indiana. Unfortunately, the
cost of making them here dramatically increased
to more than my selling price a few years ago.

  To keep selling them at an affordable price,
they are now made exclusively for me in India.
They are still made of high quality 18/8 Stainless
Steel exactly like they were made in the U.S.A.
