"If there were a
Nobel Prize for Cookware
Design, you'd get my vote."

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

"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
some of the prevailing
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."
Ann Heller, Food Editor of
The Dayton Daily News 

Scientist Lee Drannan Smithson and his 2136th Roasted Chicken Cooked on his Inventive WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan. The Pan will hold Six Hamburgers, an Eleven Pound Turkey, a Prime Rib Roast for Eight Hardy Eaters, or Half-A-Ham.
"Wow!  We're Speechless.
We LOVE The Pan.
You are a Genius."

RGTemp posted this review:


"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 one of the best
tools you have to cook,
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!"

Broiling And Roasting Problems
I Discovered 50 years Ago!

It's NOT What I Thought!
It's NOT What You Think!

Here's The Elusive Broiling Culprit that
Has Hoodwinked Cooks, Chefs, and
Food Authorities for Over 100 Years.

Everything About That
Hateful Broiler Pan Above is Wrong.

The Rack is Wrong. The Metal is Wrong.
The Size is Wrong. The Shape is Wrong.

Believe it or not,
Smoke, Splatter, and Flare-ups
me From Hot Drippings That
Puddle, Flare-up, 
and Burn on That
Foolish Perforated Sheet Metal Rack
a few, ineffective drip holes.
Broiled Foods, per se, are Innocent!

That Pan is The Only Problem.
Not Broiling!

Here's How I Made that
 Shocking Cooking Discovery.

 As a young analytical research chemist,
50 years ago, my research 
that heating 
organic materials to a
high temperature 
often formed
carcinogenic compounds.

Since grilling allows fats to drop
onto HOT coals or Gas Flames,
I quit grilling in 1967 because
of carcinogenic concerns.

I started telling everyone who
 Would Listen to "
Stop Grilling."

Twenty-nine Years Later (1996),
The National Cancer Institute
Caught Up With My Advice and
Started Warning A
gainst Grilling!

 I Quit Grilling and Started to Broil,
Broiling was a Hateful Mess.
I hated that old broiler pan that
came free with my oven so much,
I vowed to do something about it.

 I decided to perform a simple
Broiling Experiment to SEE if
 broiling could be improved.

The First Rule of the Scientific
Method Is Observation...

So, I pulled up a stool to my wall
oven, with a stopwatch in hand, and
I observed three
hamburgers broil
on that hateful broiler pan above
for 5 minutes and 47 Seconds!

I never took my eyes 
off the hamburgers!
Am I the only person in the
world to ever do this?  Probably.

Here's What I Saw and Didn't See.

Virtually NONE of the Smoke and Splatter
Came Directly From The Hamburgers!

I could barely believe my eyes.

The Hamburgers Were Innocent!

Virtually ALL the Broiling
Smoke, Splatter, and Flare-ups
me From Hot Drippings that
Puddled, Flared-up,
and Burned on
Perforated Sheet Metal Rack
a few, ineffective drip holes.

hat Foolish Broiler Pan
Was Obviously
The Broiling Culprit.


It was then easy to conclude:

The Common Roasting Pan is
The Roasting Culprit. 

Here's Why.

Common Roasting Pans 
are improperly made of 

good heat conducting metals
as aluminum, porcelain
coated steel, and clad metals.

Those metals quickly get
HOT and Smoke, Splatter,
impossible to scrub-off black-char.

Most roasting pans are too big
for the average household.

They won't fit IN a divided sink.
They won't fit IN a dishwasher.
Teflon Broiler-Roaster Pans
Should Be Against the Law!
They Out-Gas Toxic Fumes at
about 550° F w
hich can give you
Fume Fever and even
Kill Pet B
irds In Your Kitchen.

Millions of Chickens in Hatcheries
Have Been Killed by Outgassing of
Teflon Coated Light Bulbs Used
to keep the chickens warm!

Bottom Line: Don't Use Teflon
Broiler-Roaster-Frying Pans!

The Surprising Discovery that 
THE Pan was THE Problem,
Led to My Invention of The
WaterBroiler®-WaterRoaster™ Pan. 

All I had to do was to 
Design a Pan that Prevents
 Broiling and Roasting Drippings
From Touching Hot Metal!

Barbara Flanagan Says
The WaterBroiler®-WaterRoaster™ Pan is
  One of 34 Essential Kitchen Tools in
 Flanagan's Smart Home
The 98 Essentials for Starting Out,
Starting Over, Scaling Back

"The broiling pan of the future
is here, its design informed by
Lee Drannan Smithson's conviction:

The broiling process is not inherently
brutal, but
is, in fact, a peaceful
cooking technique made
violent and
disgusting by "ill-conceived" pans.

In 1975, a new kind of broiler
pan was quietly launched by
Lee Drannan Smithson,
a chemist now living
in Dayton, Ohio.

He trademarked his invention,
a deceptively simple device, as
The WaterBroiler®-WaterRoaster™
and has
been selling it to
consumers one by one, via
direct mail and website
ever since.

Its simplicity only dramatizes its
success, which comes from not
doing what other pans have done."

Here's How to Use and Clean
The WaterBroiler®-WaterRoaster™ Pan.

Couldn't be Cleaner!
It Couldn't be Easier!
It Could't be Simpler!

It Truly IS Trouble-Free!

Use The Pan

Under Your Oven Broiler
Broiling and In
Oven when Roasting.

The Pan is NOT
for stove-top use.

1)  Pour 1½ Cups of Cold Water into the
   Pan Before Broiling and Roasting.
That's about 1/4 inch of cold water.

(2)  Place the Rack on TOP of the Pan
and F
ood on TOP of The Rack.
Never Cover the Food with Anything.

(3)  Broil Under your Oven Broiler or
Roast in your 350 degree Oven,
The Ideal Roasting Temperature!
The Water Has Such Profound
Cleaning And Taste Benefits,
The Pan is Registered in the
U.S. Patent and Trademark Office as
The Water
Broiler®-WaterRoaster™ Pan.

Fear not. The water will NOT steam
food in this
poor heat conducting,
heat reflecting, mirror-polished
Stainless Steel Pan. 

In fact, it takes over 2 hours in
a 350 degree oven for water
to reach the boiling point. 

The water evaporates just enough to
add a
beneficial amount of moisture
to the oven to
keep the food juicy.

The Water also prevents drippings
from sticking and makes the
drip pan super easy to clean.
The Mirror-Polished
18/8 Stainless Steel Drip Pan
about 10 Seconds with
A Soft Dishbrush or Dishcloth.

The Mirror-Polished
18/8 Stainless Steel Wire Rack
CLEANS in about 27 Seconds with
A Soft Dishbrush or Dishcloth.


The Pan and Rack also Clean
Beautifully in Your Dishwasher
If You Don' Have 37 Seconds to Spare.

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

 It Won't. 

Yes, water will make any old broiler
drip pan easier to clean, BUT water
in typical pans will NOT prevent the
hateful smoke, splatter, flare-ups,
and scrubbing that come from
drippings that puddle and burn on
ill-conceived perforated sheet metal
racks with
a few inane drip holes.

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

"The WaterBroiler Pan is
Fantastic, A Must Have Item."

Here's How I Invented the
WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan
To Be Smoke-Free, Splatter-Free,
Flare-up-Free, and Scrub-Free.

The Wire Rack is Right.

Unlike perforated sheet metal racks,
This Rare 18/8 Stainless Steel Wire Rack,
Electropolished to a Mirror Surface,
allows virtually ALL the drippings to
Instantly DROP into the drip (Drop) pan.
Absolutely no smoke, no splatter, and
no flare-ups come from this wire rack.

The Metal is Right.

Both the Pan AND the Wire Rack are
Made of 100% 18/8 Stainless Steel
for more than a beautiful mirror finish.

18/8 Stainless Steel is a poor heat
the perfect metal for a
broiler-roaster pan that does NOT
need to get HOT to cook perfectly.

Of course, the pan gets hot, but
as hot as quickly as common
broiler pans cheaply made of
good heat conducting
metals such
as aluminum and porcelain steel.

The Round Pan is Right.

Unlike hateful rectangular pans,
This Round Pan is Designed
To Fit IN your divided sink.
To Fit  IN your dishrack.
To Fit IN your dishwasher.

And, No Hard to Clean Corners!

It hangs beautifully on your
potrack for daily  access.

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

It leaves room in your oven
to Roast the Vegetables
and Bake the Potatoes.

 The Size is Right.
The 12 inch diameter round pan
(not including handles)
is perfect
for most households.

It holds 6 small hamburgers,
 an 11 pound turkey, or
a prime rib roast for 8 hardy eaters.

It is so easy to Use and Clean it's
Perfect for Singles and Couples, too.

The Handles are Right.

The Easy-to-Grip Handles
Are Welded to the Pan
Where They Should Be.

Most broiler pans don't
even have handles!

Some foolish broiler pans
have handles on the rack!

Some foolish roasting pans have
dropped-handles which are difficult to
lift-up without burning your fingers. 

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

"It is a new experience to turn broiled
food without having to pull the
pan out from under the broiler." 

The WaterBroiler® Pan and
Forkula® Tongs Inventions
Work Beautifully Together.

The Drannan WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan & Forkula Tongs Make Cooking Easy. The Pan, The Rack, and The Tongs are Made of 100% 18/8 Stainless Steel to Stay Beautiful for Generations. All Three Pieces are Easy-to-Clean & Dishwasher Safe.
The Forkula® Tongs
Registered in the U.S. 
Patent and Trademark Office

 Alhough I invented the Forkula Tongs
to instantly turn food broiled on
My WaterBroiler Pan,

The Forkula is Also
A Great BBQ Tool.
I'm turning a hamburger on
the Weber Grill below..

The Forkula is perfect for instantly turning
broiled hamburgers, fragile fish, thin
sausage patties, chops, and thin
vegetables, even onion slices, 
on your WaterBroiler Pan and
on outdoor grills with wire racks.

The  Forkula is made of 100%
Stainless Steel just like the
WaterBroiler Pan AND Rack
to last beautifully for generations.

It's Dishwasher Safe like the Pan & Rack.
The Forkula is 16" long to
keep your
hand away from the heat.

You can buy The WaterBroiler Pan without
The Forkula Tongs, but the Forkula Makes
Turning So Easy, I Highly Recommend
The WaterBroiler/Forkula Tongs SET.

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

My WaterBroiler® Pan AND 
Forkula® Tongs Inventions
Made The New York Times
on separate occasions, quite
a feat for a
Broiler-Roaster Pan
AND a pair of Tongs.

Many customers say my
Recipes and Cooking Tips
 are worth the price of the pan.

  I've also included a few
of my favorite original recipes
that do not use my pan.

Tortilla Soup.
Uses a rarely used, but
readily available, spice
that makes the soup!

Bread Pudding.
  I bake the bread in the
microwave oven!
I've Served This Hot Bread
To Over 15,000 Guests
Over the past 30 years! 

Dulce de Leche
(Caramel) Ice Cream

Uses two ingredients!  No Kidding.
(One ingredient is in a jar.)

Soused Apple Cake.
When I catered winter weddings,
it was often the Groom's Cake
that got Rave Reviews.

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

Simply pour the water and drippings into a
a 4-cup
measuring cup. The fat floats
for easy removal with a ladle.

Some cooks say they use chicken broth
or wine in the pan to get a  "headstart"
on making a
sauce or gravy, however, the
water and drippings from a roasted
chicken make a delicious
sauce or gravy.

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

“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 have
never had any kitchen thing change
my life like the WaterBroiler!

I have given them to sooooo many
people! I think of you so often, as
I pop it in the dishwasher, and barely
remember the old scrubbing that would
keep me from making broiled foods!
I'm in awe everytime I use my
WaterBroiler Pan.

And they say there is nothing new
under the sun. Products like yours make
me wish I still had my cookware store."

 Gail Douglas, New York

Sapere posted this review on
Cooks Illustrated Bulletin Board:

"I bought Drannan's WaterBroiler,
guessing that the pan would not
be as ideal as it claims, but still
better than the usual broiler pans.

In other words, I thought it
was too good to be true,
but since he promised
a money-back guarantee,
it was a low-risk experiment.

It turned out that the pan
delivered everything it claimed.
I used to avoid broiling due to
the mess and smoke.

Now I broil almost every day.
It may sound sappy but this pan
has really changed the way
I cook.
And no, I am not a paid
spokesperson for the product...
just a converted skeptic."

Roasting at 500 degrees to "seal in
the juices" is 
ill-founded advice.

The truth:  Roasting at a High
cooks out the juices and
burns the drippings into carcinogens
when roasting on ill-conceived roasting
pans made of "good" heat conducting
metals which quickly get HOT.

Broiling and Roasting on the
WaterRoaster Pan
totally eliminates the
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 ground beef because
it is too fat and not cost effective. 

I never use ground sirloin because it is
too lean and makes a tough hamburger
because there is little fat to cook out.

When you use the WaterBroiler-
WaterRoaster Pan, virtually all the fat
cooks out and instantly DROPS away
from the food, making cooking on this
pan the most fat-free way you can cook.

I've roasted over 2000 chickens on
my pan at 350
degrees F, and they
turned out perfectly.

It takes 3 minutes of my time and 1 1/2
hours of oven time to roast a 3 1/2 pound
chicken. I start out with the chicken,
breast side up.  After one hour, I turn the
chicken breast side down to be near the
evaporating water keep the breast juicy
and succulent. After 30 more minutes, a
3 1/2 pound chicken is
perfectly roasted.

I do NOT truss the chicken which
has never been good advice. 

Scores of  customers have written
to tell me my pan makes the juiciest
roasted chicken they have ever tasted.

It has been said that the test of a
Great Chef is their Roasted Chicken. 
In that case, I'm a Great Chef and
so are the thousands of cooks and
a few smart chefs who b
ought my pan!

"I LOVE this pan.
Retired chef who hates doing dishes."


There are over 100 types of Stainless Steel.
Some are Cheap. Some are Expensive.

What's the difference?

Lets start with the scientific
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 and can stain.

18/8 Stainless Steel is an Iron
based alloy that contains at least
18% Chromium and 8% Nickel.

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 
makes no practical difference.

The high nickel content of
18/8 and 18/10 Stainless Steel
makes both metals impervious
to acidic foods, more durable,
and allows the metals to be
polished to a very smooth,
mirror finish for easy cleaning.

18/8 and 18/10 Stainless Steels
are also known as Type
304 and Surgical Stainless Steel.


 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."

The WaterBroiler -WaterRoaster
Pan and Forkula Tongs
are made 
of 100% 18/8 Stainless Steel

purchased separately,
I highly recommend the Forkula
to go along with your WaterBroiler
Pan since the Forkula makes turning
of broiled food so quick and easy.

The Forkula is necessary to instantly turn

For many years, my pans, racks,
and tongs were
proudly made in Ohio
and Indiana. Unfortunately, the cost of

making them here increased to more
than my selling price a few years ago.

  To keep selling them at an affordable
they are now made exclusively
for my company in India. They are

still made of expensive, high
quality 18/8 Stainless
polished to a mirror finish.
