What do I use Teleflora Le Saucier for? and other odd cookware

Posted by happyday (My Page) on

Is it permitted to ask the use of strange cooking utensils here?

I have a Le Saucier by Teleflora, it's a small upright copper pot, looks like tin on the inside? with a removable wood handle. This is one just like it on ebay

A sticker on the bottom says it was made for Teleflora in Portugal in 1984, but that one is only the upper pot. Mine also has the base, a large copper holder for a sterno can or candle, which the upper pot sits on top of.

So what is this supposed to be used for? For keeping gravy hot for serving on the table? If it were to be used to cooking, why not just use a double boiler?

I also have an square of granite, about 8"x8"x.75", set in a white plastic tray. Is this meant to be a trivet for setting hot pots on, or to be warmed in a microwave to keep a dish warm, or someting else? These are both thrift store finds.

The Teleflora thing probably came with flowers in it....I have something similar and I use it for melting butter for dipping things like crab and artichoke.The granit thing is most likely a cheese serving board.....the plastic wouldn't do for anything hot

Thanks Linda C!

I have the granite thing...two actually. It is a warmer. You put the trivet in the microwave for 3 minutes (if you have two, you put them face to face). It will keep food hot for a long time. Not as good as a hot tray, but great for use where you don't have a convenient electrical outlet.

I thought it might be a warmer actually. Thanks bbstx.

Looked it up and it might be a Keep It Hot by Telebrands

It looks like that. The one Amazon review says that their microwave magnetron failed the first time they used the plate. Did you ever have trouble with yours? It's made in China, wonder if they put metal in there somewhere.

The other one is The Original Stonewave Microwave Warming Plate by Emson That one has a glowing review.

Bbstx which one does yours look like? If you have used the first one from Telebrands with no problems I may keep mine, but if yours is the second one from Emson, I may get rid of this one without using it, if it ruins microwaves. Telebrands lost their patent on it.
