Cook's Companion® Cast Aluminum Ceramic Nonstick 9 qt Oval Proaster w/ Grill Pan Cover

As we’ve said before, we love cookware that can be used for multiple purposes. Take this proaster, for example! From the designers at Cook’s Compaion®, we’ve got an oval proaster to help you work wonders in your kitchen. Holding nine quarts in the base pan, you can sear and simmer stews easily. When you need to add a cover, just place the cover (which doubles as a grill pan when you’re not using it) along the top to make this more of a pressure cooker that you can access while everything’s cooking. No need to worry that you can stir your ingredients – just pop the top, give it a stir and press it back into place. Made with a nonstick coating, clean up is also a breeze when you add this to your arsenal. Check out the care and use link for some fantastic recipes you can use with your brand new proaster!

  • Copper - Burnished copper
  • Blue Steel - Dark slate blue

  • Can be used on gas, electric, induction cook tops and ovens (up to 450° F with or without cover)

How much cookware you need depends largely upon how often you cook, how many people you cook for and how elaborate your meals tend to be. It's very frustrating when you find yourself in the middle of preparing a big dinner and in need of one more saucepan, but you just don't have it. On the other hand, it can be very easy to accumulate far more cookware than you actually need.

The Basics
Most people will who do even a small amount of cooking will find a lot of uses for a couple of different size saucepans and a couple of different size skillets. Tight-fitting lids for the saucepans are also important when preparing dishes such as rice.

Beyond the Basics
You can prepare a lot of wonderful meals with just a few pans, but chances are you're going to need some other pieces at some point. Many cookware sets will include at least some of these items:

  • Dutch Oven
    This is a large pot with two handles and a tight-fitting lid. It can be used on the stovetop or in the oven. A dutch oven is excellent for preparing large meals such as pot roast or beef stew.

  • Griddle
    A griddle lets you turn one or two of your stove burners into a smooth, flat cooking surface that's ideal for foods such as pancakes, french toast and more.
  • Large Saute Pan
    A large saute pan, especially one with a tight-fitting lid, is a very useful addition to your kitchen because it can allow you to prepare an entire meal in one pan.

  • Pasta Insert
    This is similar to a steamer insert, except a pasta insert is designed to let the food, such as raw pasta, be submerged in boiling water instead of just sitting on top of it. The advantage to a pasta insert is that it is very easy to remove the food from the boiling water once it's cooked?all you have to do is lift out the insert!

  • Steamer Insert
    This is a perforated pan that fits inside another saucepan. You can place food, such as raw vegetables, in the steamer insert and then place that in a regular saucepan that is partially filled with boiling water. The holes in the steamer insert will then let steam from the boiling water cook the food. Steaming is a very healthy way to prepare food because it doesn't involve adding any fat.

  • Stock Pot
    A stock pot is a very large, tall cooking pot usually with two handles and a tight-fitting lid. Stock pots are primarily used for preparing soups, sauces or stocks in large quantities.

  • Tajine
    Originally a heavy, unglazed clay pot, the tajine was used by nomads across Morocco and North Africa. Today it can be found crafted from a variety of materials including earthenware, cast iron and clay. It features a round shallow-sided base with a conical lid. This uniquely shaped lid is what makes it perfect for slow, low-heat cooking - the circulating steam condenses on the inside of the lid and then that moisture "bastes" the cooking food to keep it moist and tender.

Debra MurrayAbout the Guest
From a young age, Debra Ann Murray has been passionate about food and cooking. Growing up in rural New Hampshire, Debra's family tended a large annual garden which fed them throughout the year. In the spring, she would help collect sap to make maple syrup. Debra describes the experience, "I thought my Grandmother was a magician. No matter what we brought her from our gathering - whether berries, grapes, or things from the garden - she would transform them into the most delicious meal or baked goods. You could just feel the love that came from everything she made."

Over the following decades, Debra's passion for cooking and hospitality would grow. She would work in her family's sandwich shop, at catering companies and in restaurants and bars. Eventually, Debra took a job as a food stylist at a TV network. Working behind the scenes, she prepared meals for several on-air guests and high-profile personalities. The celebrities on the network took note of Debra's talents and hired her as their assistants and stylists.

Stepping out from behind the scenes, she soon took center stage, working side-by-side with her high-profile partners. As her career progressed, she authored nine cookbooks and began hosting shows. In 2013, Debra joined EVINE Live where she presents and demonstrates superior-quality kitchen products.

  • Proaster Base Pan: 17"L x 11-1/4"W x 5"H (3.10 lbs)
  • Proster Grill Top/Pan: 17"L x 11-1/4'"W x 2-1/2"H (2.75 lbs)
  • Care Instructions:
    • Always preheat your cookware and for best performance, use low to medium heat when cooking food. This helps preserve the nutrients in food and the nonstick surface. Preheating requires oil, water or food to be in the pan. Heating without food, water or oil may cause damage to the pan or ceramic coating.
    • As with all fine cookware, hand washing is recommended and will prolong the cookware's original appearance.
    • Always allow your cookware to cool before submerging into water.
    • When hand washing, use a soft towel or sponge and wash with warm soapy water. Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners, steel wool or other abrasive cleaning pads.
    • It is recommended that you use tools made of silicone, nylon, wood or melamine to protect the luster of the interior surface.
    • Always use extreme caution when handling hot cookware and keep out of reach of children at all times.
    • Do not let handles extend over a hot burner. Doing so may cause the handles or silicone locks to become hot or cause damage.
    • Silicone locks are removable.
    • Always use oven mitts or potholders when handling cookware.
    • The Proaster is oven safe up to 450°F.
    • Do not use your Proaster in the microwave.
    • The Proaster is designed to be used with the Oval Grill as a lid or with each piece separately. To use Oval Proaster together with the Oval Grill/Lid, please follow the connection instructions.
