    What is this pan called/used for?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Going through some old boxes I pulled this pan out which came with my house and has sat in a box unused for the 30 years since. On the handle is stamped "MADE IN FRANCE" and 26. The 26 is the large diameter of the pan in cm. the handle is also about 26cm long. The pan appears to be carbon steel and is in the design/shape of a French Chef pan, except it has the holes in it. Anybody ever seen one like this before? If so what's it called and what is its' intended use?

    Yeah I saw many that were sold for that purpose but none using the French Chef pan design. Also, all the designs I saw used holes considerably smaller than the ones in my pan. Plus as best as I can tell this pan predates the selling of those pans.

    Awesome. I was looking and scratching my head then scrolled down to reveal the answer.

    Nice work Barry.

    Might work for hazelnuts too but I would give coffee a miss

    I look forward to seeing what you manage to create in it on the BBQ?

    Yeh, I think we had one of these pans in the kitchen of a pub that I used to live (and occasionally work) in. At the start of winter we'd sell small bowls of chestnuts to punters who thought they should do something healthy once a year (by substituting chestnuts for pork scratchings).

    Indeed. Given our user numbers I figured someone on here would probably know what it was. So after scratching my head over it for a day I posted it up.

    I've got a friend who roasts his own chestnuts who has expressed an interest in it so I may not end up using it at all.
