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."

Here's How to Easily Use And Easily Clean
The WaterBroiler®-WaterRoaster™ Pan in a Minute.
It Couldn't Be Easier! Or Be Cleaner! Or Be Simpler!

Use The Pan Under Your Oven Broiler When 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
                                                                   Broiling and Roasting...About 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 Rack on TOP of the Pan. Place Food on
                      Top of The Rack. Never Cover the Food with Anything.

                  3. 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 Wire Rack
Are The Two Essential Design Secrets.

Cold Water is The Third Secret
I found that Pouring Cold Water into my Prototype Pan Before
Broiling and Roasting had Profound Cleaning And Taste Benefits so
 My Pan is Registered in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office as
The WaterBroiler®-WaterRoaster™ Pan.

The Cold Water Prevents The Drippings from Sticking, Smoking,
And Burning which 
makes the drip pan super easy to clean.
The Water also has a Profound Taste Benefit.
The water evaporates just enough to add a small controlled
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 Rack Are
Easily Cleaned in a Minute with a Soft Dishbrush or Dishcloth.


The Pan, Rack, and Tongs also Clean Beautifully In Your Dishwasher!

Don't think you can pour 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 water in common broiler pans will NOT prevent
Broiling Smoke, Splatter, Flare-ups, and Scrubbing Problems
That Come From Hot Drippings that Puddle and Burn on
 Perforated Sheet Metal Racks with a few 'drip' holes.

"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!"

The Greatest Broiler-Roaster Pan

By Scientist, Caterer, and Inventor Lee Drannan Smithson

Before I Can Begin to Convince You that my
 WaterBroiler®-WaterRoaster™ Pan Invention Will Instantly
Solve All Your Hateful Broiling and Roasting Problems, 
  You Need to Know The Hidden Cause of Broiling
And Roasting 
Problems I Discovered 50 Years Ago.

ALL Broiling And Roasting Problems Are Caused By
ILL-Conceived Broiler Pans AND ILL-Conceived Roasting Pans
Like Those 
Hateful Pans Hiding in Every American Kitchen.

The Common Broiler Pan IS The Broiling Culprit. Not Broiling.

The Common Roasting Pan IS The Roasting Culprit. Not Roasting.

Broiler Pans Like the One Below that Came Free With Ovens
For 100 Years is the Most ILL-Conceived Cooking Pan Ever
Fabricated and The Reason Why American Cooks Hate to Broil.



Eight Lmb Chops Broiled on the WaterBroiler Pan

"Wow. We're Speechless.  We LOVE the Pan.  You are a genius."
"If there were a Nobel Prize for Cookware Design, YOu'd Get My Vote."

Frozen Steaks take a few extra minutes to Broil to a Crispy Exterior
While the Frozen Center Prevents the Center from Overcooking!
The 1/2" Center of  1" Steaks Cook Perfectly...Medium Rare.

My two favorite steaks are a 1" thick marbled Rib-Eye
And a 1" thick New York Strip (aka Boneless Top Loin).

Broil seven minutes until Crispy Brown.
Turn and continue broiling for six more minutes.

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 Broiling and Roasting Pleasure for
  About the Cost of One Steak Dinner in a Fine Restaurant.

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

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

"Excellent time saving, taste enhancing product at excellent price!"
"Way better than that huge thing that came free with my stove!  Love it."

"Unbelievable product, better than advertised."

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

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 Wire 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 Wire Rack allows virtually ALL
the Drippings to Instantly Drop through the rack 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 Wire 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 quickly hot 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 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.  

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 is Right

Unlike rectangular pans that are too big for everyday use, this
12 inch Round Pan (not including handles) is Thoughfully Designed
To Fit IN Divided Sinks. To Fit IN Dishracks. To Fit IN Dishwashers.

And, To Hang Beautifully on your Potrack for Daily Access.

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

The Size is Right 

Unlike typical broiler-roaster pans, the 12 Inch Diameter
Round Rack is The Perfect Size 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.

It's so Easy to Use and Clean, it's also Perfect for Singles and Couples.

 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! 

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

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

To keep selling them at an affordable price, they are now made

"1000 Times Better than the Broiler Pan
that came free with my oven."

"The Absolute Best Broiler Pan."

"The Best Roasting Pan You Will Ever Buy." 

"I LOVE this pan.  Awesome Results with the easiest clean-up ever."

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

Inventive Smoke-Free Stainless Steel
Broiler Pan Easily 
Cleans in a Minute.

This Scientist Invented Broiler Roaster Pan is Amazingly
Smoke-Free. Splatter-FreeFlame-Free. Scrub-Free.
Even When Broiling Hamburgers and Roasting a Chicken.




Everything About That Out-Dated Broiler Pan is Wrong! 

Wrong Rack.  Wrong Metal.  Wrong Shape.  Wrong Size.

I hated scrubbing that old broiler pan above so much, I decided
to do something about it. The First Rule of Scientific Method is
Observation so I observed three hamburgers as they broiled. 
That simple experiment opened my eyes to The Broiling Problem.

Here's what I Saw and Did NOT See.
 The Hamburgers Were Totally Innocent.
Virtually No Smoke, No Splatter, and No Flare-Ups
Came Directly From the Hamburgers!

Virtually ALL the Broiling Smoke, Splatter, and Flare-Ups
 Came From Drippings That Puddled and Burned
On That Foolish Perforated Sheet Metal Rack
With a Few Sparsely Spaced "Drip" Holes.

Common Roasting Pans are Foolish!
They are made of "Good Heat Conducting" Metals Like
Aluminum, Copper, Clad Metals, and Black Porcelain Steel
Which Quickly Get HOT And Burn the Drippings into Black Char.

Broiler-Roaster Pans do NOT need to get Hot!
The Cooler Broiler-Roaster Pans Stay, The Better.

Of course, my Pan gets Hot but Not As Hot As Quickly
as pans made of good heat-conducting metals. 

 The Discovery that Common Broiler-Roaster Pans
Cause All Broiling and Roasting Problems Led to
 My Invention of
 The World's First* Smoke-Free.
  Flame-Free. Scrub-Free Broiler-Roaster Pan.

*I invented The Pan in 1967 and started Production in 1975.
My first ad was in Gourmet Magazine, October 1975.

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. Occasional
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.


"My husband LOVES it.  Easy to Clean. Steaks were Great."

My WaterBroiler® Pan AND My Forkula® Tongs Inventions
Each Made The New York Times on Separate Occasions,
Quite a Feat for a Broiler Pan And a Pair of Cooking Tongs! 

Believe it or not, You Can Now Broil
Hamburgers, Steaks, Lamb Chops, and Salmon
(The Best Cooking Device You Already Own!)

 And You Can Now Roast A Chicken,
An 11 Pound Turkey, A Prime Rib Roast, A Pork Loin,
A Beef Tenderloin, A Leg of Lamb, or Bake Half-a-Ham
(The 2nd Best Cooking Device You Already Own!)

With No More Smoke in Your Kitchen.
No More 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 Scrubbing Broiler-Roaster Pans Ever Again!

 I Invented the Forkula® Tongs to Instantly
Turn Food Broiled on The WaterBroiler Pan
While The Pan is Still Under The Oven Broiler!
No More Chasing Hamburgers with a Pancake Spatula! 

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

The Forkula® also Works Equally Well as a Stand-Alone BBQ Tool.

The Forkula® Makes the BBQ Tool Set of Kitchen Tools Obsolete! 

I'm turning a hamburger with the Forkula® on a Weber Grill below.

Barbara Flanagan in Flanagan's Smart Home says
"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."


Based upon Over 1000 Unpaid Testimonials From Delighted Cooks,
A Few Chefs, and A Few Enlightened Food Authorities,  
My WaterBroiler®-WaterRoaster™ Pan May Be

The Most Trouble-Free Cooking Pan Ever Created.
