Double bubble.

The true dessert artiste can often be found in the kitchen, tempering chocolate or whisking up a sabayon or making a gloriously silky custard. A classic French copper bain marie takes those tasks to the next level, both in style and function. Copper heats quickly and evenly so water boils fast, and then easily stays at an even simmer. The tin interior holds heat for a long time, so sauces won’t seize or burn (and it’s easy to clean, too). And oh! how beautiful our marie looks on a stovetop, all shining and bright. Made by Mauviel, one of the most classic and trusted of all copper cookware makers, this is a luxurious addition to the serious dessert-maker’s kitchen.
