For some strange reason, choosing the right kind of baking set for your home can be one of the more difficult and confusing options that a budding chef can face. The simple reason for this is that there are so many different options available that you could literally go bonkers trying to learn about each and every one that is currently offered. To make matters worse, there are new kinds being developed and offered on an almost daily basis.
Since it is so confusing to try and learn about the many different types of baking sets available, what is a person to do? Well, the answer is to learn a little about the most popular types and brands that are currently offered, and use that information to help you make your final choice. Keep in mind that one of the most important things that you can look for in a baking set is whether or not it can fit inside each other. This will not only help you save storage space, but also help keep things clean and allow you to find the exact size of bowl or pot you need quickly and easily.
Types of Baking Sets
- Pyrex bakeware. Pyrex has been popular for the last 95 years. It is made from nonporous glass. The advantage is that Pyrex bake ware conducts heat well, but won't trap odours, flavours or stains. They are safe for the oven, microwave, refrigerator and are dishwasher safe.
- Stoneware. The way stoneware is constructed , ensures that it sturdy enough to be used in the microwave or oven up to 500 degrees and can be cleaned in the dishwasher. You won't taste the previous dinner after cleaning as they do not allow previous aromas and flavours to linger, spoiling the current meal.
- CorningWare Bake and Serve. CorningWare's stoneware composition will resist any chipping or cracking. It is nonporous, therefore it shouldn't stain or retain odours. CorningWare comes with both plastic and Pyrex glass lids enhancing its use as serving, storing and cooking pleasure. It can be used in the oven, microwave, refrigerator, freezer, or dishwasher.
- Stainless Steel. Stainless steel cooking and baking sets are still one of the most popular choices in the kitchen today. However, anyone that has ever used this kind of baking set before can tell you that it does have a slight drawback, and that is they cannot be used in the microwave.
If you buy wisely, you can save money by dishing up from any of these products thus saving on dish-up bowls and washing dishes.
