					  Pillivuyt Porcelain Small 5-1/4-Inch Individual Tart/Creme Brulee Dish




Pillivuyt excels in making the classic French cooking tools and the tart pans are a fine example of this.
With graceful fluted edges and a brilliant impermeable glaze, these are dishes you can bring to the
table and present your creations directly to your guests or family. The walls of these dishes, as in all
Pillivuyt items, are exceptionally even and not too thick, so the heat conduction is even and efficient.
This creates an evenly cooked and browned crust that will slide easily out of the pan when you are
ready to serve it. You can cut your tart in the pan without worrying about scratching the glaze and the
dish will clean up without scrubbing or scraping. Pillivuyt porcelain is fired at 2500 degrees Fahrenheit,
so you can safely put any dish under the broiler for that finishing touch and final browning. The 5 1/4
inch tart pan is just right for creme brulees and individual tarts and will not be harmed by the use of
browning tools.
This 5-1/4-inch round baking dish with straight 3/4-inch sides is ideally shaped for baking and serving
an individual crème brulee or fruit tart. The thin, even walls provide the ideal heat conduction for a
nicely browned crust and the shallow sides create a wider surface area for torching a crème brulee's
top into a crunchy, caramel glaze. An exquisite specimen of fine French pottery, this porcelain baker is
simple in appearance with its milky white color, smooth finish, and fluted exterior yet durable due to its
proprietary time-tested ingredients and quality construction. The tart dish's pristine beauty and
excellent temperature retention (both hot and cold) make it a wonderful serving vessel that goes from
oven or refrigerator to table. Family-founded in 1818, the Pillivuyt porcelain factory still employs skilled
artisans who use the original time-honored traditions of handcrafting each piece. Replacement molds
are all handmade by craftspeople who have spent many years in training, and who shape them to the
level of perfection that this superior bakeware requires. The result is a tough porcelain base that can
withstand temperature extremes, making this baker safe to move among the oven, freezer, microwave,
or broiler. And, with a little liquid in the baker, the pan can even be placed over a diffused flame on the
stovetop. All pieces are glazed and fired at temperatures of about 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit, which
produces a non-porous, rock-hard finish that easily cleans up by hand or in the dishwasher. The
lead-free glaze is resistant to crazing and staining and won't absorb food odors or flavors.--Cristina
