The black snail pan has a diameter of 14 cm and is made of solid cast iron. Cast iron is a traditional material for making snail pans as it is such an excellent distributor of heat. The snails are cooked evenly in an instant and so even novice chefs can master this French speciality in the comfort of their own home. The small holes in the escargot dish are also suitable for baking sweet or savoury snacks. You can also use the dish as a mould for chocolate truffles.
