The Gotham Steel Crisper tray consists of two removable pieces; 1. The bottom Tray which catches grease and lifts the mesh basket. Can even be used alone as a griddle. 2. Mesh basket with handles for easy removal. Both are non stick, non scratch & for your convenience, dishwasher safe! The mesh basket is elevated above the tray allowing the entire contents of the tray to be surrounded & absorb the heat being emitted. This allows the inside to be soft yet fully cooked, and the outside to be super crunchy and crisp, the best possible texture one can achieve in food! Grease also drips right out of the mesh basket onto the bottom tray for easy disposal. Works like an Oil-less fryer with al the benefits of non stick Ti-Cerama Cookware & doesn't take up as much space or power.
