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."

Barbara Flanagan says 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.

After a pan full of burgers or chicken legs has been
broiling for a while, the first surprise is silence.  No splashing,
no burbling, no sizzling, no screeching of the smoke alarm. 

When the meat is done, it tastes the way it looks,
like ad copy always says: moist on the inside, crisp
on the outside.  Afterwards, the pan needs no scouring, 

just a trip through the dishwasher's regular cycle. 

That his innovation has not become a mainstream commercial
product, ubiquitous as the colander, explains a lot about design.

Unless the product can sell itself, by looking like what it's
supposed to look like, it can't compete in the big marketplace.
A product that needs explaining, like his, is a hard sell.

And that's part of its charm. It reminds you that the big companies
don't have all the answers after all. The inventor/entrepreneur
 is still alive and well, 
cooking silent burgers in Ohio."


The WaterBroiler Pan and Forkula Tongs Set is A Very
Useful and Appreciated Gift for Weddings and Birthdays.

Many cooks have ordered two, one for each home.

"I'm tired of wagging your pan back and forth between my homes."

Orders of Two or More Sets will be Individually Boxed and Mailed
In a Master Carton to Keep Individual Boxes in Pristine Condition
For Gift Wrapping. The Individual Boxes are Mailable, too.

The Houston Chronicle says,
"Inventive pan eases cleanup...

It minimizes smoke, splatters, and scrubbing"


"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

Everything About That Hateful Broiler Pan is Wrong!
Wrong Rack.  Wrong Metal.  Wrong Shape.  Wrong Size.

Virtually ALL Broiling Smoke, Splatter, and Flare-ups
Come From Drippings that Puddle on That Ill-Conceived
Perforated Sheet Metal Rack With a Few Inane Drip Holes.
Virtually No Smoke, No Splatter, No Flare-ups
Directly from Broiled Hamburgers and Steaks.

I made that discovery in 1967 by simply watching three
hamburgers broil on that hateful free broiler pan above.

My analytical chemistry research revealed that carcinogenic
compounds can form when organic carbon containing materals burn.

I Quit Grilling on my Weber Grill to Get Away from Burned Drippings.
 I then started to Broil on the
 broiler pan that came free with my oven.

But, Broiling was a hateful mess. I hated the Smoke, Splatter, Flare-ups,
and Scrubbing so much, I decided to do something about it.

The First Rule of the Scientific Method is Observation.
I pulled up a stool to my wall oven with a stopwatch and
notebook in hand, and I watched three hamburgers
As They Broiled For 5 minutes 47 Seconds.

Am I the only person in the world to ever do that?  Probably.

Here's what I Saw.  And did NOT See.

Virtually All the smoke, splatter, and flare-ups came from drippings
that puddled and burned on that cheap perforated sheet metal rack
that has been Common on American Broiler Pans for 100 years.

No Smoke! No Splatter! No Flare-ups!
Came Directly from the Hamburgers! 

As a Scientist, I could barely restrain myself from
Shouting, Eureka!!!  As If I Had Just Made,
The Greatest Cooking Discovery of All Time,
Worthy of the Nobel Prize for Cookware Design :)

     After Discovering The Hidden Cause of The Problem,
I Had All The Information I Needed to Invent
The World's First Smoke-Free!

Splatter-Free! Flame-Free! Scrub-Free!
Broiling! Grilling! Roasting! Pan!

 I trademarked my invention in
The United States Patent and Trademark Office as
The WaterBroiler® Pan - WaterRoaster™ Pan.
My First Ad was in Gourmet, October 1975.

     I also use two additional trademarks for
The Same Versatile 2-Part Pan When Used as a Grill Pan.
The WaterGrill™ Pan - UpSideDownGrill™ Pan Turns Your
 Existing Oven Broiler into a Smoke-Free "Indoor Grill."

Everything About This Pan Has A Scientific Reason For Being.

The Rack is Right. The Metal is Right. The Shape is Right.
The Size is Right. The Handles are Right.

I Will Explain The Science Behind This Pan in a Moment.

Tens of Thousands of Smart Cooks Now Love This Pan!

I Have Over 1000 Testimonials I Never Paid A Cent For.

Made The New York Times on Separate Occasions,
Quite a Feat for a Broiler Pan And a Pair of Cooking Tongs!

RGTemp posted the following  UNPAID Testimonial:


What a wonderful invention!

I never used my broiler because I hated the smoke,
flare-ups, and worst of 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!"

You Can Now Broil, Grill, and Roast Delicious Food Like This
 With Virtually No Effort and No Cooking Experience.

 The Simple Recipes in My Recipe Booklet Make it Easy.


The Rack is Right. The Metal is Right. The Shape is Right. The Size is Right.

The Handles are Right.  Most Broiler Pans Don't Even Have Handles!!

The 18/8 Stainless Steel Grill Rack is Right.

Unlike the ill-conceived perforated sheet metal rack on
Common Broiler Pans which allow only a Small 
Fraction of the
Drippings to Slowly drip through those sparsely spaced holes or slots,

The  WaterBroiler 18/8 Stainless Steel Grill Rack Allows Virtually
All The Drippings to Instantly Drop into the Drop (drip)

Absolutely no smoke, no splatter, and no flare-ups come from this rack.

The 18/8 Stainless Steel Metal is Right.

Both the Drip Pan  AND The Grill Rack are made of  Expensive

100% 18/8 Stainless Steel for More than Beauty and Endurance. 

18/8 Stainless Steel is a poor heat conductor,  the perfect metal for a
Broiler-Roaster Pan that does NOT need to get HOT to cook perfectly.

Of course, my pan gets hot, but not as hot as quickly as pans made of
  good-heat-conducting aluminum, black porcelain steel, or clad metals.

Buyer Beware when Buying Stainless Steel  Cookware!
Did you know?  There are Over 100 Kinds of

Stainless Steel based on Different Chemical Compositions!

By DefinitionStainless Steel  is Any Iron Based Alloy that contains
at least 11% Chromium.  Stainless Steel that meets that minimum
definition is NOT good for Cookware.  It is reactive to acidic food.

18/8 and 18/10 Stainless Steel are The Two Best Kinds for Cookware. 

18/8 Stainless Steel contains 18% Chromium and 8% Nickel.

18/10 Stainless Steel contains 18% Chromium and 10%  Nickel.

They are practically identical. Slight Variations in % Nickel is allowed.  

NOTE: 18/8 and 18/10 Does NOT Refer to The
Gauge (thickness) of The Metal, as many cooks assume.

Here's How to You Can Test Your Stainless Steel  Cookware:
A magnet will STICK to Cheap Stainless Steel that contains No Nickel.

If a Magnet Sticks, you got Stuck with Cheap Stainless Steel.
A magnet will NOT STICK to Expensive 18/8 nor 18/10 Stainless Steel.

The Round Pan Shape is Right.

Unlike unwieldy rectangular pans with hard to clean corners, the
12 inch Round Pan (not including handles) is Thoughfully Designed 
To Fit IN Divided Sinks. To Fit IN Dishracks. To Fit IN Dishwashers.

The 12 Inch Diameter Pan Size is Right. 

Unlike typical broiler-roaster pans that are too big for everyday use,
 The 12 Inch Diameter Round Pan is  Perfect  For Most Households.

It holds Five 4 inch Diameter Hamburgers.
Eight 3 1/4 inch Diameter Hamburgers.  Four NY Strip Steaks.
A Beef Rib Roast for 8.  Half-a-Ham.  
An 11 Pound Turkey. 
A Pork Crown Roast with 14 Chops.  A Boston Butt Roast.

It's so Easy to Use and Clean, it's The Perfect
Cooking Pan for Singles and Couples, too.

 The Handles are Right.

Most broiler pans don't even have handles!

The Easy-to-Grip Handles are Welded to
The WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan Where They Belong.

Some Foolish broiler pans have handles on the rack! 

This Pan Hangs Beautifully on Your Potrack for Daily Access.

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

Common Roasting Pans and Common Professional Roasting Pans
Are Carelessly Fabricated with No-Handles or Dropped-Handles
which are difficult to lift-up 
without burning your fingers. 

             BROILED 7 MINUTES                       FROZEN NY STRIP STEAKS                TURNED...BROILED 6 MINUTES         

Here's Why Steaks Taste Better when Grilled from Frozen!
The Frozen Center Prevents Overcooking!
The 1/2" Center of  1" Steaks Cook Perfectly. Medium Rare.
Both Sides of Frozen Steaks Sear Perfectly in 13 Minutes.

My two favorite steaks are a 1" thick marbled Rib-Eye

And a 1" thick New York Strip (aka Boneless Top Loin).

Once you Eat a Steak Broiled from Frozen,
You Will Freeze All Your Steaks Before Broiling.

Hamburgers can be Broiled from Frozen for
Convenience, but
 Cook them Well-Done.
It is NOT Safe 
to eat Rare or Medium Rare Hamburgers!

Imagine The Ease and Convenience.

When you don't have time or energy to cook, 
pull frozen steaks or hamburgers out of your freezer and
Broil them while you're 
microwaving the vegetables
and potatoes and 
making a salad and setting the table.

You can be sitting down to a steak dinner in about 29 Minutes.
Add One Minute to CLEAN the WaterBroiler Pan.

You Can Buy The WaterBroiler Pan/Forkula Tongs Set And
A Lifetime of Trouble-Free Broiling, Grilling, and Roasting for
 The Cost of One Steak Dinner in a Great Steakhouse.

"My husband loves your WaterBroiler Pan so much,

he now refuses to grill outdoors."

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

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


Ann Heller, Food Editor of the Dayton Daily News,  says,  

"Dayton inventor's WaterBroiler and Forkula
make life easier for home cooks."
"Lee Drannan Smithson calls himself a scientist. An inventor.
caterer. Add to that minimalist and iconoclast --
for in his kitchen, the 
former chemist smashes some of
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 and put it on the pan
and tuck it into the oven. "It takes me all of 3 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.
He calls it a WaterBroiler, which does double duty as a WaterRoaster.
  Designed to eliminate smoke, splatter, flare-ups and tedious scrubbing,
it is a two-part pan that looks so simple, it invites skepticism. 

He had become disenchanted with grilling because of the
carcinogens that can be produced, and he turned to broiling
but "that was a mess and a chore" because of the broiler pan.
"The old-style broiler pan is the problem," he says.
"The smoke comes from the rack, not the meat," he says.

Being a scientist, he decided to find a better way and developed the
WaterBroiler. Smithson says the pan works because of science."



"Works just as described. My husband LOVES the
WaterBroiler Pan. 
Easy to Clean. Steaks were Great."

You Can Now Broil and Grill
 The Best Tasting Steaks From Frozen!
No Thawing Needed!  No Thawing Advised!

"I LOVE this pan. Awesome Results with the Easiest Clean-up Ever."

The Science Behind the Wonderful WaterBroiler-WaterRoaster Pan

"Our Salmon was More Moist and Tastier Than Ever." 

"The Absolute Best Broiler Pan."

 How To Easily Use and Easily Clean
This Mirror Polished 18/8 Stainless Steel Pan in a Minute.

It Couldn't Be Easier! Or Be Cleaner! Or Be Simpler!

Use The Pan Under Your Oven Broiler When Grilling
And Broiling And In Your 350°F Oven When Roasting.

The Pan is NOT designed for stove-top use.

                   1. Pour 1½ Cups of COLD WATER into The Pan Before
                                                                  Grilling, Broiling, and Roasting...1/4 Inch of Cold Water.

                        Fear not. The water will NOT steam the food in this
                        'poor heat conducting' 18/8 Stainless Steel Pan.
                        It takes 2 Hours in a 350°F Oven for the Water to Boil. 

                  2. Place the Grill Rack on TOP of the Pan. Place Food on
                      Top of The Grill Rack. Never Cover the Food!

                  3. Grill (Broil) UNDER Your Oven Broiler or Roast IN Your
                      350°F Oven, 
The Ideal Roasting Temperature.

 The Poor Heat Conduction of The 18/8 Stainless Steel
      Drip Pan AND The 18/8 Stainless Steel Grill Rack are The
     Two Essential Design Secrets of this Revolutionary Pan.

Cold Water is The Third Secret
Pouring Cold Water into the Pan Before Broiling and 
 Roasting has Profound Cleaning And Taste Benefits.

The Cold Water Cools The Drippings and Prevents
Sticking And Bake-ons for Super Easy Cleaning.

The Water also has a Profound Taste Benefit.
The water evaporates slightly (does NOT boil) to add a small
amount of moisture to the oven to keep food juicy and succulent.

Hand Basting is Now a Thing of the  Ancient Past!

The Mirror-Polished 18/8 Stainless Steel Drip Pan and Grill Rack

Easily Clean in a Minute with a Soft Dishbrush or Dishcloth.


The Pan, Rack, and Tongs also Clean In Your Dishwasher.

Don't think you can pour cold water into your Old-Style
Broiler Pan and get the same result.  No, You Can't!

Yes, water will make old-style drip pans easier to clean,
but pouring water into common broiler pans will NOT prevent
Broiling Smoke, Splatter, Flare-ups, and Scrubbing Problems
That Come From Hot Drippings that Puddle and Burn on Cheap
Perforated Sheet Metal Racks with a few Inane 'drip' holes.

This Inventive Pan is Designed for Broiling and Grilling
Under Your Existing 240 Volt Electric or Gas Oven Broiler
And For Roasting in Your Existing 350°F Oven.
It is Not A Smoking, Splattering Frying 'Grill Pan.'
It is Not a Wimpy 120 Volt Counter Hogging Indoor Grill.

It Doesn't Look Anything Like A Common
Broiler Pan, Grill Pan, or Roasting Pan. That's Good.
It Doesn't Act Anything Like One! It's "1000 Times Better."

Here's Something About Grilling and Broiling
That Every American Cook Needs to Know! 

Chef Pierre Franey says in The New York Times, 
"Recently I received an excellent piece of equipment for
broiling that works wonderfully, 
not only for broiling but for a
variety of things. 
It is called a WaterBroiler pan and rack."

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 price, they are now made
exclusively for Drannan Cookware in India.  They are still made 
of expensive, high quality 100% 18/8 Stainless Steel Polished
To A Mirror Finish just like they were made in the U.S.A.

Do You Know The Difference in Grilling and Broiling
That Has Escaped the Notice of Almost All
American Cooks, Chefs, and 
Food Authorities?  

Only In The United States and Canada,
Grilling is Outdoor Cooking Over an Intense Fire.
Broiling is Indoor Cooking Under an Intense Oven Broiler.  

They Produce Similar Results. In Effect,

Grilling is Upside Down Broiling!
The Heat Source is Below the Food. A bad place to be!

Broiling is Upside Down Grilling!
The Heat Source is Above the Food. A good place to be!

 Only Americans and English Speaking Canadians Say,

"Broil - Broiling - Broiled - Broiler - Under The Broiler."

The Rest of the English Speaking World Says, 
"Grill Grilling - Grilled - Griller - Under The Grill." 
'The Grill' is The Top Heating Element of An Oven!

Only In the United States and Canada,

'The Broiler' is The Top Heating Element of an Oven!

'The Grill' is an Outdoor Cooking Device.
'A Grill' is a Metal Framework Used to Hold Food when
Grilling Over a Fire! At least, that is what it used to be!

In a marketing ploy to sell 'Grills' which are Not Grills,
American Cooks Have Been "As Seen on TV" Bamboozled!

Common 'Grill Pans' are Smoky Frying Pans, NOT Grills.

Wimpy 120 volt Counter-Hogging Indoor Grills Can't
 Compete with The Intense Heat of an Outdoor Grill Nor
The Intense Heat of A 240 volt Electric or Gas Oven Broiler.
Intense Heat is Required to Sear Steaks and Hamburgers.
