"Absolutely the best broiler pan ever created."

"The best roasting pan you will ever buy."

"1000 times better than the broiler pan
that came free with my oven."

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

"First meal cooked that didn't smoke up the house."

"It is no more trouble to clean than a dinner plate."

"Tomorrow I throw out the old broiler pan."

"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"

"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."

My amazing broiler-roaster pan
CLEANS in about
37 seconds with a soft
  dishbrush or dishcloth and hot soapy water.

It even FITS IN your dishwasher.

And yet, it will hold Seven, 5 1/3 ounce
hamburgers and even an 11 pound turkey.

My pan looks deceivingly simple, but
you will soon see that a lot of
Science and Common Sense went into
The Innovative Design of my pan to make it
"The greatest cooking invention since the stove."

The WaterBroiler Pan is "an excellent piece of
equipment for broiling that works wonderfully,
not only for broiling but for a variety of things."

Chef Pierre Franey, The New York Times

"Life has been so enjoyable since buying
your product that I decided to write
you commending your WaterBroiler.
For the tired husband who's 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 cheer you every time I do the pots and pans."
Robert L. Hays, Ohio

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

I was hoping to get it for chemistry,
but I would be happy to get it for my
Revolutionary Cooking Invention.

Before I can convince you that
my simple looking
WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan
Truly Is The Solution to All Your Hateful
Here's The Dirty Truth about
Broiling and Roasting Problems

that has eluded and hoodwinked cooks,
chefs,and food authorities
for over a 100 years.

 Caused By Ill-Conceived Broiler-Roaster PANS
like the hateful ones in every kitchen in America.

The Most Hated Cooking Pan Ever Fabricated.

ALL broiling smoke and splatter and
flare-ups come from drippings that puddle
on that ill-conceived perforated
sheet metal rack on typical broiler pans.


I made that surprising discovery by simply
observing hamburgers broil on that hateful
  broiler pan that came free with my oven.

The 1st Rule of
The Scientific Method is Observation.

Here's what I observed:

Few drippings dripped through
That Ill-Conceived Perforated Sheet
Metal Rack with a few drip holes.
Most of the drippings puddled on that

cheap, sheet metal rack to get HOT and
  SPLATTER and BURN into
SCRUB-OFF Black Char.

I was shocked to see that
the hamburgers were totally
Virtually none of the hateful smoke, splatter,
and flare-ups
came from the hamburgers!

As a scientist, I had to restrain myself
from shouting, "Eureka!"

Typical Roasting Pans and Broiling Pans
are ill-conceived and hateful because they
are made of good heat conducting metals
like aluminum, porcelain steel, and
clad metals which quickly get HOT to

 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.

 Those shocking discoveries
Led to my invention of the
WaterBroiler®-WaterRoaster™ Pan,
The Amazing Pan Guaranteed to Solve ALL

"My husband LOVES the WaterBroiler Pan so much, he now refuses to grill outdoors." Houston Texas Customer
"Ahhhh....To Broil Again."

RBTemp posted his review below 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!!"

The WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan Makes Broiling and Roasting Easy and Trouble-Free. Now you can cook delicious food like this with virtually no effort.
The WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan is
The Cleanest to Use, Easiest to Clean,
Most Trouble-Free, Most Versatile,
Most Highly Praised
Pan Ever Created.

Those are big claims that sound far-fetched,
but please keep reading, and
I will prove all the claims are absolutely true.

"I've waited all my life for a pan like this."

"My husband says we may never use a skillet again."

"We're speechless. WE LOVE the pan. You are a genius."

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

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

"Absolutely the best broiler pan ever created."

"The best roasting pan you will ever buy."

It is Also
A Baking Pan, A Beautiful Serving Dish,

A Gratin Pan,  A 12" Paella Pan,
A 12" Pie Pan,
A 12" Round Cooling Rack
with a built-in Crumb Catcher.

"Fantastic product.  Cooked the best hamburgers ever."

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

"Our salmon was more moist and tastier than ever!"

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

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

The WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan is
The Ideal Size for singles, couples, and
small households, and yet, it will hold
  • seven 5 1/3 ounce hamburgers
  • 12 small lamb chops, six pork chops
  • six salmon steaks
  • a rib roast for 8 hardy eaters
  • half-a-ham for a crowd
  • a 6 pound beef tenderloin cut into 2 pieces
  • an 11 pound turkey
  •  a pork crown roast with 14 chops
  • a five pound free-form meatloaf on the rack
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.

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

 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
drip pan before broiling and roasting
had profound cleaning and taste benefits.

The drippings DROP INSTANTLY through the
18/8 Stainless
Steel Wire Rack into the water. 
No Smoke, No Splatter,
and No Flare-ups come
from this RACK like they do on
ill-conceived broiler
  pans with a thoughtless perforated sheet metal

The water prevents sticking of drippings that
DROP into the 18/8 Stainless Steel Drip Pan.
The drip pan CLEANS in about 10 seconds
with a soft dishbrush and hot soapy water.
  The rack CLEANS  in about 27 seconds.

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.

The water evaporates just enough to keep
broiled and roasted foods moist and succulent.

It takes two hours in a 350 degree oven for the
water to reach the boiling point when roasting.

While Water is beneficial and is Secret # 3, the
design of the pan and rack are most important.
Secret #1 and Secret #2 which makes my pan
work wonders will be revealed in a moment.

CAUTION:  Don't think that pouring water into
the base of your hateful broiler pan will prevent
the smoke, splatter, flare-ups and scrubbing.
It won't.
Water does NOT prevent the smoke, splatter,
bake-ons, and scrubbing from drippings
that puddle on a perforated sheet metal rack,
  the ill-conceived 'standard rack design'
on hateful, common broiler pans.

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.

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.

"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.

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!
The 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 Forkula is 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.

The Forkula is also a great stand-alone BBQ Tool.
I'm turning a hamburger on a Weber Grill below.
I will tell you more about the Forkula in a moment.

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

Although my pan looks "simple,"
you will soon see that a lot of
Science and Common Sense went
into the design of my 'simple" pan
to make it work wonders!

Secret 1.

Of course, once I discovered the ill-conceived
perforated sheet metal rack is the Main Broiling
Culprit, it 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 Strong, 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 sick with
'Polymer Fume Fever' and you risk killing pet birds in your kitchen.

Secret 2.

Of course, "good" heat conducting metal
had to go to prevent drippings from burning.

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.
And, surprisingly, this smaller round pan holds almost
as much food as those hateful rectangular 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 with a
soft dish brush and hot soapy water. It would clean
with a sponge, but I don't use sponges in my kitchen
because of bacterial concerns. 

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
fluctuates 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 mirror-polished 2-Piece 18/8 Stainless Steel
Pan AND Rack is so beautiful, you will be proud to
  hang it on your potrack for easy access since
  you will be using this trouble-free pan several
times a week for the rest of your life.

Since I have only shown two broiled T-Bone Steaks
and two Salmon Steaks ready for broiling on my
pan to keep from hiding the mirror polished pan,
you may think that my pan is much smaller
than typical broiler-roaster pans, but in
actuality, it is only 21% Smaller.

It holds a surprising amount of food
for its slightly smaller size.

WaterBroiler Pan Holds Seven 5 1/3 Ounce Hamburgers. The hamburgers are slightly less than 4 inches in diameter. When roasting, an 11 pound turkey fits ON the rack.
For size comparison, my pan grill rack with Seven, 5 1/3 ounce burgers is setting on a typical, hateful perforated sheet metal rack that comes on most broiler pans
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 my WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan,
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 over 1000 users,
my pan
truly is the Most Highly Pr
Most Lovable Cooking Pan ever created.

"Inventive pan eases cleanup."  Houston Chronicle

"No steel wool needed."  Miami Herald

"Great product.
  What a relief it is to junk my old broiler pan."

"Way better than that huge thing that came
with my stove!  Love it."

"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 is fantastic!  I am so glad I bought it."

"Excellent time saving, taste enhancing product at excellent price!"

"Perfect! Used for 1st time, clean up a breeze.
Should have bought sooner!"

"Unbelievable product, better than advertised."

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

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

“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

that would keep me from making broiled foods!
I'm in awe everytime I use my WaterBroiler Pan."

 Gail Douglas, New York

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

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.

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.

The Forkula is 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,
The Forkula is also a great stand-alone BBQ Tool.

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."

Although I invented the Forkula to turn broiled food
on my pan, as you can see, it is a wonderful BBQ
Tool for instantly turning food grilled on a wire rack.

No More Chasing Hamburgers with a Spatula!™

Pancake spatulas should 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 are
 using my Forkula as a stand-alone BBQ Tool.

I consider the Forkula a necessity to instantly
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!"

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 notable guarantee!

Including Shipping Both Ways.

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?

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.

Many customers have told me my Recipes and Cooking Tips
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
or a recipe for any  soup that uses this spice.  

My original Ice Cream Recipe is to die for. It uses just
2 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
and cooking tips are worth the price of the pan?


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.

"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.

It truly is a cooking tragedy that over
150 million cooks in America will never
have the pleasure of broiling and roasting
on my pan.  Even if I could produce a million
pans a year, it would take me 150 years!

You are a very lucky cook
to have found out about my pan.

You will become one of a few cooks
who will LOVE broiling and roasting.

One lady from Houston wrote,
"I've waited all my life for a pan like this."

Lucky you.
You won't have to wait more than 3 days!

But, don't wait until the whole world finds out..

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.

"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.

"I've waited all my life for a pan like this."
Houston Texas Customer

Now that you know what this pan will do for you,
order today, and you will only have to wait 2 or 3 days until
you will be enjoying this totally trouble-free way to cook.

Just in case I haven't convinced you yet to order,
here are a few more unpaid testimonials.

After you read them and if you still not convinced
that everything I claim is true,  please email me and
tell me why you didn't take me up on my
One Year MoneyBack Guarantee
to test the pan in your own kitchen
without risking one cent.

I would very much appreciate the feedback.

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 10 minutes  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

"My wife's favorite pan."
