This collection of miniature cookware is constructed of high-quality aluminum that ranges in thickness from 3mm to 3.4mm, and is finished with a white, non-stick coating. Available in six styles and sizes, they make charming additions to a buffet table for serving hot appetizers, dips, sauces and nuts. Heat-resistant to 500°F, they are perfect for oven-to-table service. Their size makes them ideal for individual portions of stews, rice, au gratin potatoes, baked pastas, cobblers, custards and pies. The thickness of the walls allows for added heat retention and will ensure contents stay warm. Riveted brass handles lend an upscale feel upon serving. The coating in these pans is scratch-resistant, although aggressive use of metal tools can chip and damage the material. The naturally non-stick, white interior cleans easily, however frequent use of tomato and carrot-based products may tint the interior coating slightly. Note that all dimensions are interior and do not include handles or the thickness of the material. Use caution when using on cooktops, as handles get hot during the cooking process. Hand-washing is recommended as dishwasher detergents may cause aluminum to pit.
