Best deep dish pan
« on: April 22, 2013, 01:14:40 PM »
So what is everyone's deep dish pan of choice to cook in? I've been wanting to try a deep dish but I need to buy the pan first. Thank you for any and all replies. Chad

I talk about deep dish pans on my site : http://www.realdeepdish.com/2012/10-15-deep-dish-101-lesson-4-nuts-and-bolts/

Basically, you want a heavy weight aluminized steel cake pan. I'd start with a 12" or 14" round pan that is 2 inches deep (some people like shallower pans). My favorite pan is the first one I ever bought. It's a 12" AMCO straight-sided aluminized steel with a non-stick coating. It's silver and hasn't gotten much darker than when I started. You can also find specialty deep dish pans that have various black coatings on them.
I like straight-sided, but slanted pans work fine as well. I talk more about that stuff at the link above.  :chef:

Others in this forum have talked about their experience with pans in the past. They may be able to point you out to other places in this forum where we've talked about them.

Not sure where you are located but Chicago Metallic works very well.

Chad,

Another member recently asked basically the same question at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,24507.msg248199.html#msg248199. You might read that thread to get some ideas.

The first successful deep dish I ever made was VCB's recipe, using a standard 9" cake pan that I already owned.  Turned out fantastic. 

IOW, if you have a well stocked kitchen, there may be no need to buy any special equipment.
