Chestnut Roasting Pan. Vintage Sweet Chestnut Roaster.
This is a vintage, French, specialist chestnut roasting pan. This invaluable chestnut roasting tool is a sealed cylinder pan, with a sliding door at the side, where you insert the chestnuts. The long handle keeps you from getting burned by the flames.
Designed to perfectly roast chestnuts outdoors or indoors on an open fire in the hearth.
Effortless to transport, it is super lightweight. It is easy to use. You simply pop the chestnuts into the pan, close the door and place on the heat. Rotate the pan often to ensure the chestnuts are roasted evenly. Perfect chestnuts every time, and safe, without "spitting or projectile chestnuts."
The patina on this roaster is wonderful. The pan has genuine, authentic patina (some scratches and rust). It does have lots of "dints" and "dents" in the cylinder, from years of roasting "popping" chestnuts, which adds to the rustic charm of the piece. It is perfectly functional and has many, many happy hours of roasting still to come.
Designed with a long handle, (37cms/ 14½") so you don't get too close to the fire, it measures 22.5cms/ 8¾" diameter x 9cms/ 3½" deep, and weighs 700gms/ 1.5 lbs.
The handle is probably not the original, it seems to have been replaced at some point in its life, it has been worn smooth with age.
Ideal for Autumn and Winter celebrations and parties, such as Bonfire night, All Hallows Eve, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
You could use it to roast coffee beans and hazelnuts.
Who doesn't love the smell of chestnuts roasting on an open fire, along with a glass of mulled wine!
