i love love love that pan! (or whatever it's called)
i broil steaks on it.
i broil salmon on it.
it's just great!
i didn't buy it though.
i inherited it from my nana who died 20 years ago.
i think she said it was a gift.
i can't find it anywhere and i've ruined the darn thing by washing it in the dishwasher.
any ideas?
oh, the back of it says something about italy.

    That's called a sizzle plate. You can easily find them at any restaurant supply stores.

    How do you use it? How does it differ from using a broiling pan?

    They're used in restaurants a lot to transfer meats from the pan to oven, which is usually cranked up all the way, or to the salamander. They don't warp under the intense heat and since they're aluminum, they conduct heat fast. They are lightweight.

    But how would you use it in a non-commercial kitchen? Frau?

    but i cook on mine. it's heavy.

    i use it in the broiler.
    i put steaks, salmon and breads with cheese on it.
    it's not a transfer plate.

    maybe it's a broiling pan?

    you know, i've never used my broiling pan.
    maybe i should try it.
    it just looks like such a pain in the behind to clean-hence my relying on my little silver pan.

    Wow, cool.

    I meant a broiling pan like this: images_prodLarge_BP102X.jpg

    Frau, I mean that they're transferred to the oven from a pan and continue cooking. And that they're used mainly for broiling (transferring from grill to salamander --- like when you put cheese on a burger, you put the burger on a sizzle plate and it goes under the salamander to melt it). Sizzle plates don't warp under heat. They're easier to handle (smaller) than a broiling pan and you keep the juices, whereas broiling pans drain.

    guano:
    saria, have you ever watched death note or bleach?

    I haven't. I know of them, but not specific details. I'm a little hesitant to watch some anime because I feel a lot of anime that ends up in the US lacks focus and often just doesn't make any sense story-wise. Part of it is also censorship and translation problems. I know there are good ones, though. I've been curious about Full Metal Alchemist and apparently Puella Magi Madoka Magica is great.
    Shows like Avatar take anime elements and apply western style storytelling for the best of both worlds.
