BRAISERS & CAST IRON BRAISER PANS

Cast Iron Braisers

High-quality braisers are often made from cast iron, stainless steel, or aluminum and they generally come with a lid and side handles. Braisers can be used for many cooking techniques, like shallow frying, searing, and simmering. Braisers are perfect for browning meat or vegetables and then slowly simmering in small amounts of liquid, juices, or wine to create tender results. Braising pans with a lid are multi-purpose so they can be used on the stovetop, in the oven, and taken directly to the table for serving.

Braiser vs Skillet or Fry Pan

You can distinguish between a pan for braising and a fry pan or skillet in a few ways. Traditionally brasiers have higher sides than fry pans and skillets. They have a large flat bottom diameter which can be used for searing and browning. Braisers often have tight-fitting lids to help lock in moisture and allow condensation to drip back into the pan, They often feature side handles for easy maneuverability. Skillets or fry pans usually have lower sides, no lid, and one handle.  

Braiser vs Dutch Oven

A braiser is traditionally used for searing and simmering foods in juices or small amounts of added liquids. Dutch ovens are deeper and larger in volume which allows for cooking dishes with more liquid, like soups and stews.  

What materials is a Braiser Pan available in?

1. Cast iron braisers

Cast iron transmits heat evenly, allows for beautiful browning of foods, and is a showpiece at the table. Enameled cast iron braisers can be used on the stovetop and in the oven, require no seasoning, and are easy to clean with soap and water.  

2. Aluminum braisers

Aluminum cookware is known for its fast heat conductivity and its lightweight maneuverability. Some aluminum braiser pans have a nonstick coating offering an easy release that is safe for use with metal utensils.

Stainless steel retains heat very well and is also suitable for the oven. Stainless-steel cookware is durable and requires no maintenance. Stainless-steel braisers are dishwasher safe.
