Home chefs know that the instruments used in creating a dish are as important, sometimes more so, than the ingredients that a recipe calls for. Casseroles, potatoes au gratin, lasagna, pork roasts, cakes, pies, muffins, and breads are all apart of oven-specific cooking and the essentials of this baking subgenre is a good set of bakeware.
Bakeware materials vary and their differences can translate into properties like heat distribution. Most bakeware falls under main categories: carbon steel, heavy-gauge non-stick aluminum, and silicone based pans. These are not the only types of bakeware, there is also glass, ceramic, and even clay bakeware.
The difference in the ability to heat properly can influence the rate of baking, which invariably influences the taste of a recipe. It is the difference between creamy Creme Brule and chewy overcooked Creme Brule.
When you’re cooking a meal you can use a saute pan with a skillet pan, all while having a large pot boiling away on the stove. The same principle is applied to bakeware pans. Multiply pans for multiple uses can all be a part of the concert needed to make the perfect baked good. Again though, the greatest issue is the even spread of heat. Most ovens themselves are off my a number of degrees that can be staggering and having an uneven baking surface on top of those heat fluctuations can ruing an otherwise good meal. Souffles may not rise properly and lasagnas may have overly burned and over cooked edges with a mushy and not at all cooked middle.
Aluminum steel pans are also coupled with non-stick interiors making removing a baked good easy and mess-free. Non-stick is also advantageous because there is no need to oil up your pan, thus keeping your cooking lower in fat. Bakeware sets usually come with a round and square cake pan, muffin pan, and a loaf pan, all of which can be used for a myriad of recipes outside of the baked-good realm. Good bakeware stops batter from sticking it the base of a pan and cooks from every angle.
Although non-stick aluminum is seemingly everywhere and indeed it is, it’s not the only material that provides good heat distribution. Glassware, ceramic, and porcelain just as good as a job. What’s fun about buying ceramic bakeware is that they come in all sorts of glaze colors to suit your individual personality. Outside of being lead free in its construction, ceramics make it easy for your to just put that dish straight onto the table after being cooked in the oven. This will save money on any serving dishes.
Silicone is the newest material being adapted to bakeware. It can withstand temperatures of up to 500 degrees F and can go from the oven, to the microwave, to the freezer all while being able to release any baked goods easily because of their malleability. Silicone bottoms can be easily pushed upward to help in removing your cakes and muffins. Silicone is so popular that you buy the same variety of pans as are available with classic bakeware.
There are countless reviews, but what you should remember when buying bakeware is to go to the trusted companies. They are are popular for a reason from Pyrex to Calphalon. The number one rule to spend just a little more money and that is not to say that bakeware pans will break the bank – they won’t. Spending just a little more money now will result in pans that will last you a lifetime.
