Mauviel Copper Pommes Anna Pan Recipe
Pommes Anna is both a spectacular and very tasty dish, but although the recipe itself is the utmost in simplicity, the technique is all-important.
By comparison with other products, such as non-stick frying pans, which require using a lid and a great deal of dexterity to flip the cake without getting the butter all over the floor, the shallow top pan nests over the bottom pan, and everything stays in one place when you flip it. And the 2mm solid copper pan conducts heat wonderfully and results in a very nice crust.
The only drawback to this product that I can see is the copper exterior, which requires hand washing and occasional polishing to keep it looking like new.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Design, grat heat conductivity
Cons: High-Maintenance
