The perforated bottom of this pan allows maximum heat and air circulation so that foods brown on top and bottom - and steam escapes, so foods become crisp instead of soggy. Perfect for baking French fries, or for holding foods like fried chicken or panko crusted shrimp at temperature while you continue to cook more.This crisper is designed to make baking easier and more efficient, while measuring up to the high standards of serious bakers. Constructed of heavy gauge carbon steel, Anolon SureGrip™ Bakeware pans resist warping and provide the even heat distribution that is so critical for successful baking results. The durable non-stick surface provides optimum food release for elegant presentation and easy cleaning. The wide rim with SureGrip™ silicone handles affords ample space for a secure, slip-free grasp, and the medium colour tone aids in even browning.
