Pronouncing "bain marie"?

I've always pronounced this like bahhn with a nasal n, like pain (bread) and never thought about it. But, on Top Chef, Tom Colicchio called it "bane" marie. So, I looked it up and see everything from bane, ban, bine, bin. Merriam Webster's audio is ban marie. Is one correct? Or is this tomato, tomahto?
