You know how you can make one pizza and have different toppings for each eighth of the pie? That’s awesome, since it lets you customize the taste profile to satisfy everyone at the dinner table. If you’ve ever wished you can do the same when making lasagna for dinner, you might want to check out Chef Tony’s TriSagna Pan.
A baking pan that’s been divided into three equal sections, the cookware lets you bake three different variants of lasagna at the same time. That way, you can make one for vegans, one for meat lovers, and one that has more cheese than pasta because, you know, you can never go wrong with a ridiculous amount of cheese. Of course, you can use it to cook other types of baked dishes, too, from breads and cakes to casseroles and meatloafs to all sorts of pastas, provided all three dishes cook at the same temperature.
The Chef Tony TriSagna Pan is a large baking pan measuring 15.5 x 11.75 x 3 inches (width x depth x height), with each of the three individual sections measuring 12.5 x 3.1 x 2.3 inches. Each section should accommodate enough food for two to three people, making this ideal for those in small households, since you can use just one section to cook dinner regularly while using all three when you have guests coming over. It’s also immensely useful for households with family members who have allergies (you can remove allergenic ingredients from one section) and other dietary restrictions, since you can make the same dish in three different ways.
While it’s not the first baking pan with three separate compartments, it is the first one we’ve seen to come with detachable lifting trays for each section, which make it easy to take food out for serving while allowing grease to drain underneath to keep food from being soggy. It’s a simple but clever addition that genuinely steps up the cookware’s convenience. That way, as soon as the dish cooks, you simply lift each tray out and transfer the food to your plate, instead of trying to get under the food without having parts of it fall off.
Construction is carbon steel for the Chef Tony TriSagna Pan, so this has a tough and durable build, ensuring you’ll likely still be able to use it several years down the line just like any properly-made cookware. It’s quite hefty, too, so you can put it to work as a self-defense weapon if the zombie apocalypse happens while you’re in the kitchen. Okay, maybe one of those knives in the knife block will serve you better, but this will do in a pinch.
Do you need this? It depends. If there are no special dietary needs among your family members, chances are, you can rely on a regular baking pan. If you want to cook different dishes without having to spend extra time in the kitchen, though, this thing lets you do that while adding some extra conveniences along the way.
