What is an Egg Pan? (or Creme Brulee or Gratin Pan)

An egg pan is simple a round pan with two handles, generally to be baked in the oven. They are sometimes decorative as the contents are meant to be served table side (a baked creme brulee cannot be divided without ruining the appearance of the finished product). Other dishes that need to be baked with a crust such as gratins or savory puddings can also be cooked in them.
