Creme brulee may require a delicate touch, but that doesn't mean that you can't make it at home--as long as you have the right tools. Chicago Metallic has brought together the necessary equipment in the Creme Brulee Set. The set includes six pieces: a pan, four ramekins, and a rack to place the ramekins in the pan. The aluminized steel pan is 8 inches square, just large enough to hold the ramekins and the hot water bath necessary for creme brulee. Each ramekin is porcelain and holds 6 ounces; small enough for a personal portion of creme brulee but not so small that you can't share it with a friend. The set comes with everything necessary for creme brulee with the exception of the torch required to melt the sugar and form the crispy top. However, a torch may be worth buying a little closer to home in order to be sure of the quality.
The Creme Brulee Set is dishwasher-safe and comes with a 25-year warranty. You can use the set to cook other desserts that need a water bath during the baking process, such as cheesecake or custard. The Creme Brulee Set is available for $19.95.
