Since it is so versatile, you may want to use your Vulcan-Hart braising pan to perform many of the duties you used to perform on other pieces of equipment.
Vulcan-Hart professional chefs offer advice on how to achieve great results from grilling to braising. As with any griddle, always preheat the surface before using the skillet to grill. Because the surface is stainless steel, you should lay down a layer of cooking oil or spray to prevent the product from sticking. To use the pan for steaming, put two inches of water on the bottom of the skillet and place two in steam table pans upside down in the water. Bring the water to a boil, place the food in a right side up steam pan, place on top of the upside down pan and close the lid. To cook pasta, fill the pan up with water then you can choose to either boil the pasta directly in the skillet or place the pasta in inserts to be lifted out when done. After the pasta is finished, let the water cool and tilt the skillet to dump it out. When making soup, braise the meat first on the heat surface, then add in the stock and vegetables. The tilting action will allow you to get to the very last drop of soup.
