The Roaster is the largest piece by Blanc Creatives, a hard-working team of eight, based in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Measuring thirteen inches across from lip to lip. The cooking surface is ten inches wide with two-inch sidewalls and two loop handles.
High volume and very versatile. This pan will serve you well whether you are cooking on the stove top or roasting in the oven.
Hand-Forged in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Each pan starts its journey as a flat, circular steel disc. The disc is pressed between a larger outer ring and a smaller inner die. This process raises the side walls and gives the steel a basic and rough pan shape.
Following the press, the blank is placed in the forge and heated to a glowing red. Blacksmiths continue to shape the sidewalls with precise and rhythmic blows on the anvil.
When the side walls are of even height and pitch the pan returns to the press where the base is flattened under fifteen tons of pressure. Fine adjustments are made with a lever and hammer blows.
