The perfect pot for a confectioner or chocolatier, a bain marie is able to delicately transform items such as chocolate, sugar and milk-based sweets into states that are much easier to work with the ingredients without burning them. They are extremely useful in making cheesecake, custard and other confections. Royal Industries offers a stylish selection in its 4 1/4-qt. stainless steel bain marie (ROY BM 4.25). This bain marie is constructed of stainless steel, which is very durable and will resist corrosion. Its matching lid (ROY BM 4.25 C) is sold separately.
