    Abstract: A shaped cooking vessel for preparing food; particularly oysters. The shaped cooking vessel is formed from a planar base and a lateral wall of uniform thickness; the planar base and the lateral wall preferably being in the general shape of an oyster shell. The planar base provides a flat surface for evenly heating food and for balancing the shaped cooking vessel as to prevent rolling. The lateral wall provides a sufficient depth as to retain both solid and liquid food stuffs. A plurality of ridges integrated into the lateral wall provides an increased surface area in order to increase the heat transfer from the lateral wall to the food to be prepared, which in turn decreases cooking time of said food. The shaped cooking vessel can be nestled between a preceding cooking vessel and a subsequent cooking vessel in order to reduce storage space.

  • Patent number: 7765919
    Abstract: A substantially flat, heat-resistant baking sheet has a baking surface, a rolled periphery and a baking area within that periphery. The baking area has numerous through-holes. A generally upright wall, integrally formed with the sheet, extends along the first part of the periphery, defining an upper edge. The height of the wall varies from a maximum to a minimum predetermined height, and the wall substantially encloses the baking area along the first part of the periphery. In the example shown, the baking sheet is rectangular: the wall extends along three sides and the fourth side has no wall. A baked product can be slid or pushed off this fourth side without being lifted, the side serving as a slide-off chute or ramp. Condensation between the baking sheet and the baked product evacuates through the holes to allow the surface against the sheet to bake to a crisper consistency.
