Discover tantalizing smoky flavors by roasting your favorite foods using Nature’s Cuisine oven planks. Plank cooking works because the porous wood surface absorbs moisture at room temperature and then releases the moisture and a smoky aroma to flavor foods as they’re slowly roasted in your oven. Each wood is unique- the alder grilling planks lends a robust smoke flavor with a light vanilla complement. Plank-cooked foods are juicier, more flavorful and less susceptible to nutrient loss with a complex layering of flavors. An added benefit for health-conscious cooks: most recipes can be prepared using less fat, oil, sauces or liquids because the plank releases moisture as it cooks. Crafted in the Pacific Northwest from a solid piece of the finest quality wood, the plank also features steel tightening rods inserted into the wood to help prevent cracking and warping. It measures 17 by 7-Inch and includes recipes and a rod tightening tool. The plank is easy to clean by running warm water over it and softly scrubbing. Do not put in the dishwasher.
