What is Bratt Pan and what is it used for?

A Bratt pan, otherwise known as a tilt skillet is essential to a kitchen producing large quantities of food. The definition of Bratt is derived from the German word ‘brat’, meaning ‘fry’. In the United States and in Canada, they are more commonly known as braising pans.

Used by hospitals, schools, restaurants and across the hospitality industry, the functions of bratt pan cooking includes shallow frying, deep frying, boiling steaming and braising. These pans heat up faster than ranges or cooktops which helps them to operate efficiently and consistently. They retain optimum cooking temperature with the in-built thermostat when cooking large portions of food such as soups, curries or seared steaks. It is perfect for cooking bulk quantities to cater to large group of diners.

Bratt pans can fry food, but they are quite versatile and can perform multiple functions, such as steaming poaching stewing, braising boiling, shallow frying, deep frying and boiling.

The stainless-steel cooking plate acts like an oversized nonstick frying pan with good heat retention making it ideal for stir fries or large quantities of bacon and eggs. The stainless-steel pan doubles as a large pot, suitable for boiling in. Fill the pan with water, turn it on and get it to the boil quicky, making it ideal for blanching or cooking a large volume of stew.

With features of even heat distribution, good insulation and a counterbalance lid that can be closed, a bratt pan is perfect for when you want to braise a large volume of meat.
