"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."

Breakthrough Broiler-Roaster Pan.
Incredible Results.

No More Smoke.  No More Splatter.
No More Flare-ups.  No More Scrubbing...Ever.

"Ahhhh....To Broil Again"

"WOW.  We're Speechless.
We LOVE the Pan.  You are a genius."

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

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

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

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

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

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

"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.'
Thought I’d add my name to those who appreciate
The Best Broiler Pan on the Planet.
Each time we use it we smile.”  

Bryan D***, 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.
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."

Starting Over, Scaling Back

"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

"Tomorrow I throw out the old broiler pan."

Believe it or not,
ALL Your Broiling Problems are Caused By
Hateful Broiler PANS like the one below.

Everything About That Hateful Broiler Pan is
Totally Wrong and Ill-Conceived.
The metal is wrong.  The shape is wrong.
The size is wrong.  The rack is wrong.

Virtually ALL the Smoke, Splatter, Flare-ups,
and resulting Scrubbing comes from
drippings that puddle on that hateful
ill-conceived perforated sheet metal rack
with a sparse number of ineffective drip holes.

That Hateful Pan is The Broiling Culprit.
Not Broiling.

Please keep reading for the full
explanation of why That Pan should
be turned into something useful,
and why 150 Million Hateful Broiler
  Pans in America should be replaced with
"The Best Broiler Pan on the Planet."

"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,
 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!"

"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."

The WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan and
  Forkula Tongs Make Cooking a TOTAL JOY.

No More Chasing Hamburgers or
Fish with a Pancake Spatula.

The Forkula Tongs allow you to instantly
turn broiled food cooked on the WaterBroiler Pan
while the Pan is still under your oven broiler.

Chef Pierre Franey in 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.

"I LOVE the WaterBroiler Pan. It made a great cook out of me."

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

"Fantastic product.  Cooked the best hamburgers ever."

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

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

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!
Before I can begin to convince you that
My WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan
Truly Is The Solution to ALL Your
Hateful Broiling and Roasting Problems,

Here's Something  Shocking I Discovered
That Every Cook Desperately Needs to Know.

All Broiling and Roasting Problems
 Are Caused By Ill-Conceived Broiler-Roaster PANS
like the hateful ones in every kitchen in America!!!

Those Hateful PANS are The Problem.
Not Broiling.  Not Roasting.

Here's The Hateful Broiling Culprit
that has hoodwinked cooks, chefs, and
food authorities for over 100 years into
into falsely thinking that
broiling is just a hateful way to cook.

Everything About That Hateful Broiler Pan is
Totally Wrong and Ill-Conceived.
The metal is wrong.  The shape is wrong.
The size is wrong.  The rack is wrong.

In 1967, I got so mad at that hateful broiler
pan that came free with my oven,
I vowed to do something about it.

As a mad scientist,
I decided to do a simple broiling experiment

The  First Rule of the Scientific Method is

By simply observing hamburgers broil on that
hateful broiler pan above, I observed that
virtually none of the smoke, splatter, and
flare-ups came directly from the hamburgers!

I was shocked to observe that
Virtually ALL the Broiling Smoke, Splatter,
Flare-ups and Bake-ons came from  drippings
that puddled but did  NOT Drip through that
perforated sheet metal rack with a few drip slots.

The drippings that touched that HOT Rack

It was obvious that the perforated sheet metal rack
was The Main Broiling Culprit...NOT Broiling. 

I was so enlightened by this shocking discovery,
I had to restrain myself from shouting, "Eureka!!!"

Since That Pan was obviously The Problem,
I instantly saw that A Pan
Designed to Keep the Drippings
away from HOT metal would SOLVE
all those hateful broiling problems.

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

 Smoke, Splatter, and Burn the drippings.

Typical Broiling-Roasting Pans are too big
for most households in this country.
And, they won't fit IN a divided sink,
In a dish rack, or IN a dishwasher.

And, you already know they are virtually
impossible to clean after a half-dozen uses.

Non-Stick Broiler Pans are
NOT the Solution.

They are a Stealthy HEALTH Problem.

Non-stick broiler pans coated with Teflon
and similar fluoropolymers emit toxic fumes
  at about 550° F which can give you Polymer
Fume Fever and kill pet birds in your kitchen.

The surprising discovery that The Pan was
The Problem,
led to my invention of 
The WaterBroiler™-WaterRoaster™ Pan
and The Forkula™ Tongs.

"My husband LOVES the WaterBroiler Pan so much, he now refuses to grill outdoors." Houston, Texas Customer
 I trademarked my cooking invention
The WaterBroiler™-WaterRoaster™ Pan
after discovering 1 ½ Cups of Cold Tap Water
poured into my 18/8 Stainless Steel Drip Pan

Before Broiling and Roasting
had profound cleaning and taste benefits.

While Water is beneficial and is
Secret #3, The
18/8 Stainless Steel,
Mirror-Polished Drip Pan and
The 18/8 Stainless Steel Wire Rack
are the Two Essential Design Secrets
which make my pan work wonders.

CAUTION:  Don't think that pouring water into
your old broiler pan will accomplish the same thing.
It won't.
Yes, water will make that hateful drip pan easier to clean,
BUT the water will NOT prevent the hateful smoke and
  splatter and flare-ups and scrubbing that come
  from drippings that puddle and burn on that
  ill-conceived perforated sheet metal rack
that is common on most broiler pans.

"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 can't help but feel that any household that
hasn't your WaterBroiler is missing a real bet.
I cheer you every time I do the pots and pans."
Robert L. Hays, Ohio

Besides being,
"Absolutely the best broiler pan ever created."
"The best roasting pan you will ever buy."

The WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan 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.

Now that I have revealed why most
broiler-roaster pans fabricated in
America for the past 100 plus years
are ill-conceived and hateful,
Here's How I Invented the
WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan
To Be Smoke-Free, Splatter-Free,
Flare-up-Free, and Scrub-Free.

You will soon see that everything
about the design of my incredible pan
has a scientific reason for being.
That's why it truly works 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 Grill 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.  The round shape makes it easier to polish to
a mirror surface.  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 79%
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 an 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.

"Inventive pan eases cleanup."  Houston Chronicle

"No steel wool needed."  Miami Herald

"Works wonderfully, not only for broiling, but for a
variety of things."  Pierre Franey, The New York Times

"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."

"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."

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

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.

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 18/8 Stainless Steel Rack CLEANS
in about 27 seconds.  Both pieces even fit IN your dishwasher.

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.

(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
"ground beef" or "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.  It takes me
3 minutes of my time and 1 1/2 hours of oven time
to roast a 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
moist and succulent.  I do NOT truss the chicken which
has never been good advice. After 30 more minutes,
a 3 1/2 pound chicken is perfectly roasted. 

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

"Hi Lee,

 The pan arrived right on schedule Saturday, and
I must say my husband and I were both very pleased
simply with the look and feel of it. It is more like
a small work of art than a pan!  The size is
absolutely perfect, and the quality is superb.

 We went straight to the grocery store this AM and have
planned the weeks dinner menu all around this pan! 
We roasted a leg a lamb for todays dinner, and I can't
even begin to tell you how wonderful that pan is!

  The leg of lamb was absolutely perfect and so moist.
Absolutely no smells of burnt drippings, only the
sumptuous smells of Lamb & roast potatoes. We
never touched it or had to do a thing but let it cook. 

While my husband carved the meat, I headed for the
sink with the WaterBroiler for the absolute test, and
all I can say is WOW! It practically rinsed clean.

I don't think I have stopped singing its praises all
afternoon. You have no idea how much work
and aggravation you have saved us. 

 You know where that "Other" broiler pan is headed!!   

 Thanks again for your superior product and your
exceptional shipping.  I can hardly wait for the next meal!

Sincerely, Nigel & Rita Smith"

"My husband LOVES the WaterBroiler Pan. Steaks were Great!"
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
with 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 make
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.

Because my pan works so well that it sounds
too good to be true, I have sold it since
1975 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.

If for any reason you decide to return it,
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?

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
than the usual broiler pans. In other words,
I thought
it was too good to be true but since
he promised
a moneyback 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."

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 your WaterBroiler Pan
while The Pan is still under your oven broiler,

The WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan and Forkula Tongs Make Cooking a TOTAL JOY. No More Smoke. No More Splatter. No More Flare-ups. No More Hateful Scrubbng Ever. No More Chasing Hamburgers or Fish with a Pancake Spatula.

The Forkula is also a great stand-alone BBQ Tool.
I'm turning a hamburger on a Weber Grill above.

Tens of thousands of Happy Grill Chefs are
 using my Forkula as a stand-alone BBQ Tool.

No More Chasing Hamburgers with a Spatula!™

I highly recommend the Forkula to go
 along with your WaterBroiler Pan since
you would risk chasing food off the rack
if you use a pancake spatula.

"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.

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

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

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

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

"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

“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

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

"My wife's favorite pan."

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

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


There are over 100 types of Stainless Steel...
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.

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 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 stainless
steels are also known 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
to satisfy all the needs in America.

After that, it would take me 5000 more
years to satisfy 5 Billion cooks in the world.

You are a very lucky cook to have found
my pan before the whole world finds out.

You now have the rare opportunity to become
just one of a few thousand cooks in America
who will LOVE Broiling and Roasting.

You will soon be raving about your new cooking
discovery to ALL your friends and family.

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

Order today, and you won't have to wait
more than 2, 3, or 4 days!

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.
