Braiser: indispensable for slow cooking
A braiser is used for slow cooking. The thick material makes sure that heat is distributed evenly and is held better. So this is the best pan for making stew. When you are looking for the best braiser we have a lot of choice for you. Would like to buy a good braiser? We have a Le Creuset braiser, but also those by Demeyere, Fissler, De Buyer and Zwilling are readily available.
When you want a braiser for a very slow and long cooking, a cast-iron one would be the best option. It spreads and holds the heat best. For a shorter preparation time aluminum or stainless steel are also a good option. Especially since these are often lighter in weight.
Good braisers have, next to very thick sides, also a heavy-duty lid. A small thin lid would never be able to hold the heat as well. Always pay attention to the materials used when buying braisers. At knivesandtools you'll only find braisers of the highest quality.
