> Larger than milk pans

Americans will use anything but the metric system to measure things.

As an American I have no idea what a milk pan is so I'm just as confused.

Milk pan, abbreviated "mp" is part of the metric system, hence not being taught to most Americans.

Ten times smaller are individual egg pans, or "ep".

Ten times larger you've got pizza pan, aka "pp".

So what you’re telling me is that even a small pp is still adequate?

Pretty sure it’s just a really big bowl, kinda like a fruit bowl, it was used for separating milk and cream by letting it sit till the cream rises to the top
