Baking requires precision to achieve delicious results. You probably know that it’s important to carefully measure out the ingredients, but did you know that using the right bakeware for the job matters, too?
Whether you’re looking for specialty tools like silicone mats or bakeware sets that include everything you need in one package, you’ll find it all at Macy’s. Here are a few hints on how to buy bakeware for any type of baking project.
Start With The Basics
Consider equipping your kitchen with a 10-piece bakeware set to get baking quickly. These usually include essentials like cookie sheets, a loaf pan, cake pans in various shapes and sizes, a muffin pan and a cooling rack. If you’re short on storage space, look for a smaller set with 4, 5 or 6 pieces instead.
Look For Trusted Brands
If you plan to make a multi-part recipe that takes time and a bit of expertise (think yeasted dough or a layer cake), reliable names like Cuisinart, Nordic Ware and Farberware deliver results, so your treats turn out perfectly every time.
Nothing says “amateur baker” like leaving the bottom of a cake baked onto the cake pan. If you’re new to baking, opt for easy-release bakeware from brands like Calphalon, Anolon and Circulon. Their nonstick surfaces prevent newbie goofs.
Not A Baker? You’ll Still Want A Few Tools
Even if you’re not turning out bundts and strudels galore, it’s wise to keep some bakeware around as a supplement to your cookware. These pieces save time during prep and clean-up, too.
For example, a hot-from-the-oven casserole makes a warming meal for the whole family with very little to clean up afterward. A sheet pan supper is another fuss-free option. Simply toss your protein, starch, and vegetables in a little bit of oil and lay them down on the same baking sheet before putting them in the oven. Cooking everything together means the whole dinner is ready at once, no extra pots or pans are needed.
Now grab your apron and whip up something delicious with bakeware sets from Macy’s.
