A hare pan is a roasting vessel for roast hare , which was still in use in German-speaking areas until the 20th century. Today the rabbit pans are probably only available as collector's items or museum items.

The hare pans have a figure of eight or Y-shape, which are precisely shaped to a back of hare (prepared for roasting) with front and rear legs. Rabbit pans have a lid to achieve even cooking, some lids are flat so that they can be covered with glowing coals and thus generate top heat. Meatloaf was also prepared in these pans, which is where the name “ false rabbit ” comes from. In 19th century cookery books it was said, "... form a hare from the meat, ... put it slowly in the hare pan."

There were rabbit pans in ceramic, copper, cast iron and enameled designs; many copper vessels had to be sacrificed to the war metal collections during the First World War , which also reduced the number of copper hare pans.
