The key to smooth, creamy melted chocolate, candies and delicate sauces is the double boiler. Water goes in the bottom pan, while your chocolate or sauce ingredients go in the upper pan. When heated on the stove, the water will begin to boil, sending steam up to heat the upper pan. This will avoid scorching that can occur from the direct heat of flames and coils.
The Endurance 2 Quart Double Boiler is made of 18/10 stainless steel. The insert pan features curved sides to allow for smoooth mixing and blending. The lower pan is heavier gauge with a tri-ply base for quick, even heating. The set includes a tempered glass lid that fits both pans and is oven safe up to 450°F. All pieces are dishwasher safe.
Prepare a delicate custard, rich hollandaise or bearnaise sauce, even silky smooth chocolate just like a master chef with the Endurance 2 Quart Double Boiler. The top pan is designed with curved sides, allowing spatulas and whisks to glide smoothly for perfect blending.
The bottom pan of the Endurance 2 Quart Double Boiler is a real workhorse, with a tough encapsulated base consisting of a thick aluminum core for quick, even heat distribution.
Both pans have 2 Quart capacities, are made of durable stainless steel, and feature hygenic non-reactive cooking surfaces and polished exteriors. The Endurance 2 Quart Double Boiler has a fully tempered glass lid that facilitates constant monitoring of delicate sauces, and fits either the upper or lower pan.
