The scenario: you’ve baked a giant gratin in a disposable aluminum pan and you’re in the car on the way to the potluck. The pan is bending and flopping all over the place making the ride a very anxious one. Then you arrive, and your cheap aluminum looks a little lackluster on the table. The solution: Fancy Panz! This ingenious casserole carrier is the perfect size to pop in a standard half pan, ensuring spill-free transportation. You can keep an eye on the inside with the helpful windowed lid. The best part: the window pops out so you can serve right out of the carrier. Fancy, huh?

Pecan Ridge Pecan Oil
Pecan oil is a healthy oil rich in monounsaturated fats, or good fat, and low in saturated fats, or bad fat. It actually has three times as much vitamin E and less saturated fat than olive oil (only 7 percent compared to olive oil’s 14 percent). The smoke point of pecan oil is 470 degrees, which is higher than common culinary oils, making it ideal for cooking at high temperatures and for deep frying. Because pecans are full of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants, research suggests using pecan oil may also help reduce heart disease.
