The Mauviel M’Heritage M’150B bain marie, also called a double boiler, is a gorgeous piece for committed bakers and chefs—especially with its statement brass handle. Made of 1.5mm thick French copper, an impeccable conductor of heat, it has a porcelain insert for tempering chocolate or making delicate sauces like hollandaise, which can become scrambled eggs if a pan gets too hot. (A bain marie—especially a copper one—prevents this.) It also lets you keep ingredients warm until serving. Suitable for all hobs except induction.
Mauviel M’150 and M’250 pans, with stainless steel, brass, or cast iron handles, are made of pure copper that’s soft by nature. They are polished and finished by hand, resulting in minor abrasions, small black marks or scuffs. These are considered normal and do not have any impact on performance or durability.
Why we love it
‘You don’t have to worry about chocolate seizing in this pan—which any serious baker can attest is a huge relief.’
