As an Austrian company, Riess naturally also carries a schnitzel pan. But don't let the name fool you! Although the round oven pan with the high rim and two handles is perfect for baking out crispy schnitzels, it is also versatile in other ways.The schnitzel pan can also be placed in the oven at high heat without any problems and used as a baking dish or oven pan.
Among cooks, iron pans are popular not only because of their quaint appearance, but especially because of their good frying properties. Because of the rapid heat conduction of iron, iron pans are ideal for quick, sharp frying. Fried potatoes, meat become especially crispy in the iron pans. Often, the iron pan is also used as a serving pan mostly in conjunction with the "Pfannenknecht" or a round board as a pan trivet.
The pan "works" better and better over time. The reason for this: The porous structure of the pan absorbs the fat and forms the so-called patina, which has good non-stick properties and serves as corrosion protection. With proper care to prevent rusting, RIESS iron pans are a faithful and long-lasting companion for many kitchen adventures.
Today, Riess is the only tableware manufacturer whose production has a positive CO2 balance. Their factory is powered by electricity from their own hydropower plants. They generate more electricity than they need themselves and feed it into the grids as green electricity.
That's why this product is great:
- Serving pan with two handles
- Iron pan
- Diameter 24 cm
- High conical edge
- Suitable for all types of stoves (gas, electric, glass ceramic, induction, open fire)
- Energy saving cooking
- Easy to clean
- CO2-neutral manufactured in Austria
- However, in addition to the classic use for fried potatoes or meat or dumpling dishes, the iron pan can be used for all dishes for which a pan is needed.
- Before first use the wax layer, which serves as rust protection, must be removed with hot water.
- After that, the pan must be "baked" so that it gets the so-called "patina" ( = a natural coating, so you need to use less fat).
It goes like this:
- Heat plenty of fat
- Add potato slices, peelings and plenty of salt
- Fry for about 15 minutes, turning potatoes until very dark.
- Dispose of burnt potatoes
- Rub pan thoroughly with paper towels.
- Never put the pan in the dishwasher after use, simply wipe it out with a kitchen towel. In case of heavy encrustation, clean with water, salt and brush and then let dry well on the warm stove top.
