Pots and pans that can go in the oven give you more ways to use your kitchenware. It can also reduce the amount of washing up; for example, if preparing a tarte tartin, you can use the same pan for both caramelising the apples and cooking the tarte in the oven afterwards. And SCANPAN's roasting pans can, for example, be used for both browning the meat on the hob and for roasting directly in the oven afterwards.
Cooking this way allows you to retain the wonderful flavour that collects at the bottom of the roasting pan while browning the meat. With our pots and pans, you can get away with using just one product for the entire cooking process, from preparation to serving, even if a dish needs finishing or keeping warm in the oven before serving. Get inspiration for more dishes and uses later in this post.
If you really want the most from your kitchen equipment, your pots and pans need to be able to withstand the high oven temperatures to which they are likely to be subjected. Unlike cheaper alternatives, our pots and pans (including lids and handles) from most SCANPAN series can withstand temperatures of right up to 250°C, which makes them safe to use in the oven. Because the quality of SCANPAN's ovenproof product series is so high, it will withstand temperatures of up to 250°C, which means the products are even tough enough to be used on the grill.
If you pick pots and pans with a non-stick coating when you want to experiment with application options in an oven, not only will cleaning be easier afterwards, but you'll also be able to use your products to prepare bread or other dishes where the surface does not require the use of fat.
You'll add many more options to your cooking if you start using your pots and pans in the oven.
Did you know that you can bake savoury bread such as focaccia, or pizzas with the same crisp base as a genuine Italian pizza, by using a non-stick pan? Baking your pizza in a pan gives you the same crisp result as when Italians bake their pizzas in aluminium tins. Furthermore, an aluminium pan that retains its heat will have the same function as a pizza stone, and thereby help keep the oven temperature high.
In fact, the sky's the limit when it comes to using your pots and pans in the oven. As well as crisp bread and pizzas, you can also use our pots and pans for baking delicious desserts and cakes, such as the previously mentioned tarte tatin or apple crumble.
If you feel inspired to use your pots and pans to their full potential, you can find recipes for pan bread in our recipe booklet: Wonderful bread in a pot.
