Help! - gravad lax

Thanks, yes, good ideas - it'll be served with the classic mustard and dill sauce, which is fairly sweet - so hopefully that will balance it out.

Help! - gravad lax

Made some gravad lax, using skinless salmon and it's turned out a bit too salty.

Are there any established ways to fix this? I presume soaking in water for a while will solve the problem (as you'd do with over-salty bacon)?

Thanks for any help!

Vollrath (4010) - 10" Fry Pan w/ Cool Handle® - Wear-Ever® Series

Does anyone know where I can get this in the UK?

Thanks

Old school aluminium cookware, cast iron handle - where can I find it?

Thanks a lot.

Will try and find a picture, although even Google images is struggling.

Hi Kaleo,

Thanks for the response. Not too keen on the Vollrath really thin handles, find them a bit strange to use. Guess I am searching for the old stuff then!

Cheers

Hi, can any of you tell me where I could find heavy gauge aluminium cookware with a cast iron handle, preferably a large, fairly deep saute pan? Think they are fairly retro nowadays, they appear in older cookery clips in commercial kitchens usually. Does anybody still make it?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Can any of you experts identify the brand of this pan please?

Hi alarash, that's great, thanks for all your input. You could possibly have a match there with the Cuprinox Pour la Table, it's very similar at least.

I agree with both you and Kaleo - brand is not important (was only important here as a way of identifying a certain pan, indeed knowing the brand is fundamentally linked to the task of identification(!)).

Cheers!

Thanks for your input sbp. I'm not sure it's anymore a Bourgeat than it is a Mauviel or a De Buyer - they're pretty much all the same aren't they? There's no curve in before the hole in the end of the handle, if anything, the handle looks like it gets ever so slightly wider all the way along doesn't it...maybe the photo's distorted, I don't know.

Anyone out there work in the library clips department of the BBC!?

Cheers

Great find Zeldog, appreciate your effort. Could well be brass. I see what you mean - if you're going to manufacture a copper pan, might as well put on an expensive handle too. I just think the strip steel style of handle you get on the cheaper, work horses of the kitchen, the carbon steel pans, looks better.

The pan in the picture is definitely copper isn't it? Think it's possible to get the strip steel handle on aluminium/ss straight-walled sautes?

Cheers.

Thanks Kaleo. Strip steel, I guess, just because it looks simpler and the lighter weight makes the pan a bit more versatile. I see what you mean from the photo, could be cast. This has become quite a challenge to find out what this pan is. The BBC, who made the programme, don't have an email address for these kind of random queries, so maybe we'll never know! Have taken a look at your suggestions and the Gaillard stuff looks fantastic.

Cheers

Thanks Kaleo, you seem to know your stuff. Do you know if it's possible to get copper sautes with strip steel handles, like you see on a lot of (if not all), say, black iron pans? They all seem to have the bulky cast iron, I can't seem to find any that have the plain and simple strip steel.

Cheers

Cheers Dave.

Not sure that it is De Buyer, or Mauviel for that matter, though unless I'm not aware of this line of product. It looks like a well-used copper saute, that's clear, but the handle looks flatter/wider than the standard cast iron handle you get on a lot of copper cookware, doesn't it?

Any help would be much appreciated, someone I know really wants one as a present but I can't seem to find it anywhere!

Thanks

Thanks, don't think it's a Mauviel though. Have moved the post to the right board now...cheers for the tip.

Hi all, can anyone identify the brand of this pan please?

It's from a clip in the fantastic Masterchef: The Professionals tv series that showed late last year. It was the kind of introductory clip they played before M Roux would show one of his classic recipes for them to try and emulate. I paused an episode on iPlayer to get the photo below.

Thanks for any help!
