It’s the little things in life that make things great, but they sure are hard to write 500 words about… So in wanting to share information on some of the latest freebies today I'll be bringing you another one of my famous round ups, with two more great little things you’ve hopefully never seen before!
Name: Silicone Bakeware – Large Muffin Pan
Product Number: 166
How much: £10 approx
Where can I buy one: Kitchen Monger
I’ve put this first for two reasons. The first is to catch your attention and to get you to read on, and the other reason is simply because if I left it till the bottom you’d probably skip it and assume it’s a typically dull baking tray. Well your eye line has been rewarded as there isn’t really anything typical about this oven, microwave, freezer and dishwasher safe.
First of all it’s made of silicone which means it’s incredibly flexible, non-stick and even cooks a little bit faster than a typical baking tray! As a downside it’s not quite as strong structurally and a little prone to piercing (as is confirmed by a message on the back reading “Never use sharp metal tools to remove or cut food”).
To put the pan to the test I filled it up with Tom and Jerry cake mix, slapped it in the oven for 20 minutes and left it to see how it got on. On removing it from the tray I noticed it had changed in colour from red to purple which seemed a little odd at the time. Whether intentional or not this actually acted as a great indicator of when the pan was cool enough to touch. Once it returned to its regular red colour (in about 7 minutes) I could touch it all over. What made this even better was that I was able to push the muffins out from underneath the tray, and as the whole thing is non slip, they slid out with ease.
