Last month I started talking about baking pans and some of you asked about silicone pans and pyrex.
I have mixed feelings about silicone pans. They are pretty and you can find almost any shape/size you like but I find them so hard to maintain them clean, so I don’t use them much.
I assumed everyone knows how a pyrex looks like and didn’t took any photos of them.
Move on to other baking pans, more or less popular.
Like these cast iron pans pictured above.
I have an Old Mountain cast iron pan and the rest are Lodge cast iron pans.
Lots of small baking casseroles. Different colors, sizes and shapes.
Although they don’t make it on the blog, i do use them quite a lot.
Easy to use for individual mac&cheese, lasagna, au gratin, french onion soup and other baked dinners. Let me tell you, I just love from-oven-to-table dishes. They make life so much easier. Just pop them in the oven and when done serve. The baking time is sometimes reduced by half and they make such pretty serving dishes.
I don’t have a favorite brand, I have from no-name to Le Creuset, it all depends on the size and color. I happen to love colorful bakeware.
There are times you don’t even need a baking pan to whip up something delicious.
Nowadays you can find paper baking pans in lots of size and shapes. Cupcake liners and don’t need a pan, just arrange them on a cookie sheet and bake.
Bread, cakes – there’s a paper pan for almost everything.
I try to buy not so cheap paper liners because when baking then might gets grease and oily and the pretty liners gets all ugly. Even tho, most of the time I still use two liners when making cupcakes/muffins.
And probably the least used baking pans in my kitchen are the seasonal pans. As you can easily guess you can only use them one or two times a year. Wilton makes some pretty good seasonal pans, and you can easily invest some money in them considering you might have to pay anywhere from $10 to $15 or even more for a pan that, just like I said earlier, you’ll use it only few times a year.
I also received a question about the places I shop for baking supplies. I don’t have a favorite place. I love Home Goods/TJ Maxx/Marshalls stores and their prices are pretty acceptable. Pier 1. Michaels stores. Kitchen Collection. Le Gourmet Chef.
