Poffertjes pan cast iron
Een poffertjes, alstublieft.
Have you ever been to the Netherlands? Yes? Then you probably know what poffertjes are. Those little pancakes dusted with powdered sugar and happily served still warm with melted butter or syrup? Delicious!
In their home country, these sweet little pastries enjoy the status of a national dish, as visitors can see from the fact that special equipment has been developed for their preparation. Poffertjes pans are pans with many small cavities into which the liquid yeast dough is poured in portions. In the Netherlands, these pans are available today in many different designs. Our model is traditionally made of cast iron, and for good reason: cast iron retains heat and is able to keep high temperatures constant for a long time. In addition, the material distributes the heat evenly, in this case over the entire pan with all the recesses. In a nutshell: nothing burns and the poffertjes cook equally on both sides.
You can use this pan just as well for American-style pancakes, for crêpes, mini-galettes or small meatballs and mini-burgers - and all that from the grill, too, because our poffertjes pan proves itself not only on the gas or electric stove. It comes to you pre-fired, so you can start right away. We recommend that you work with a little more frying or baking fat than usual for the first few uses, to strengthen the existing protective layer.
Iron Casting Is an Art.
That’s no news for the three generations’ family business Victoria in Medellín, Colombia. It was more than 100 years ago that grandfather Raúl learned all the skills of iron casting and was able to set up his own workshop soon afterwards. Initially, he produced, for the most part, smaller handicraft items from casting moulds and offered them for sale. A while along the road, Raúls love of cooking and good food gave him the idea of producing a cast-iron grain mill. In retrospect, this was the beginning of an international success story. Eventually, the Victoria iron foundry sells cookware in 32 countries around the world today. Before leaving the now fully automated production, each piece is burned in the old fashioned way: with linseed oil – burnished, as the iron expert says. Burnished iron features a protective layer and is ready for immediate use. So you can start using your cast-iron pan right away. Just preheat the pan for a few minutes and use a little more fat than you usually do for the first few times; that will sufficiently preserve the burnished layer and prevent that anything sticks to the pan. Please use highly acidic foods only with care, and do not use your cast-iron pan for food storage. You can refresh the protective layer at home at any time and burnish your pan with a small amount of linseed oil.
Care instructions: You should not put cast iron in the dishwasher. To clean it, simply wipe the surface thoroughly. You can easily remove an occasionally occurring rust stain by applying a small amount of cooking oil with kitchen tissue. Please note that cast iron may leave marks on glass-ceramic surfaces.
