Growing up, there were very few things my grandmother didn’t skimp on. She lived on a small income and stretching her money was like an art form. Dish detergent, toilet paper, and cook & bakeware were the only things she would spend top dollar on. She wanted clean dishes, a clear septic system, and pans that were easy to wash. Her motto when it comes to food has always been, “The food is only as good as the pans you use to make it.” and I wholeheartedly agree.
I didn’t always heed her advice when it came to cook and bakeware. I’ve fallen for the great deals on cookware sets. The ones where you get a ton of pots and pans and only spend $20. What you don’t usually realize is that
1.) those pots and pans aren’t going to last
2.) food is either going to stick, burn, or cook unevenly
and 3.) cheap cookware is made cheaply. I’ve thrown so many cheap pots and pans away over the years.
If I had been smart from the beginning I would have bought quality cookware and bakeware and saved myself a ton of hassle and money.
One of my absolute favorite brands for cookware and bakeware is Calphalon. I’ve had a 13″ Calphalon skillet for 7 years now and it’s still my go-to for stovetop cooking. It cooks everything to perfection and the food never sticks.
I’ve recently added the 10 Piece Nonstick Bakeware Set from Calphalon to my kitchen (provided for editorial purposes) and have had an immensely delicious amount of fun using it. In this 10 piece bakeware set you’ll find:
- (2) 9″ round cake pans
- a large cookie sheet
- a 12″ x 17″ baking sheet
- a 9″ x 13″ brownie pan
- a 9″ x 13″ cake pan
- a lid that fits the 9″ x 13″ cake or brownie pan
- a medium loaf pan
- a 12-cup muffin pan
- a cooling rack
The holidays are my favorite time to bake and I’ve been doing a whole lot of it. Everything I’ve made has lived up to Calphalon’s Perfect Release, Beautiful Results promise. Brownies and sheet cakes are released leaving behind only a few crumbs. Never anything stuck to the pan!
The interchangeable lid makes traveling with your baked goodies a breeze. It’s also perfect for keeping your desserts fresh and moist, assuming there are leftovers.
The 9″ cake pans yield the ideal layered cakes. With other cake pans, I’ve had to scrape the bottom of my cake from the pan and try to piece it back together. With Calphalon’s cake pans everything comes out intact and evenly baked. Perfection!
You can’t have a decent holiday celebration without the cookies, and the large cookie sheet makes sure they’re absolutely perfect. Cookies lift off of the pan beautifully, leaving nothing behind but an empty space. Everything that was in the cookies remains in the cookies!
The cooling rack makes it easy to free up your pans to continue your bake-fest without interruption. It’s heavy enough to maintain durability, but not so heavy it’s difficult to use. There’s plenty of space for a dozen + cookies, muffins, or whatever else you need it for.
The loaf pan delivers perfect bread every time. It gives a beautiful crust and thoroughly cooked bread without extra bake time. I’ve made a few different types of bread and each loaf has come out as perfect as the ones before it.
The 12 cup muffin tin surprised me the most. Usually, when I make muffins that pop over the top I have a mess to clean up. Not with Calphalon! There is absolutely no residual batter left on the pan. It’s just fluffy muffins and cupcakes. Talk about easy cleanup!
Each piece of Calphalon Nonstick Bakeware is made with 2 interlocking layers of high-performance nonstick technology ad heavy-gauge steel. They are oven safe to 500F (260C). You can put them in the dishwasher, but Calphalon recommends hand washing them.
One of my favorite things about Calphalon is how much they believe in their products. They offer a full lifetime warranty on their bakeware. That’s how confident they are that you’ll be satisfied.
There is nothing to not love about this 10 piece nonstick bakeware set. The quality of the pans and the quality of the food made in them surpass other brands by leaps and bounds. Cleanup is left to a minimum which means you have more time to spend with family and enjoy your baked goods.
The Calphalon 10 Piece Nonstick Bakeware set is a must-have for any kitchen. It also makes a wonderful gift! It would be a great gift for a newlywed couple, kids moving out on their own, avid bakers, and anyone, really, who enjoys baking.
This is a set that will last a lifetime and you can get it from the Calphalon website. Be sure to check out all of their cookware and accessories because this a brand you want to stock in your kitchen!
