Tips To Buy Bakeware

It is important to ensure you buy bake ware that is made of mild steel that has had a non-stick coating applied to it. The coating allows the food to easily release from the surface of the bake ware and makes for easy clean up. Non-stick bake ware works well when you are baking items that need high heat for a shorter bake time & needs to be removed from the bake ware once they are done, such as biscuits, cookies, muffins, cupcakes, and layered cakes.

Wash & Care: To care for the non-stick bake ware, wash in hot soapy water and for stuck on food, soak in warm water to loosen. To prevent the coating from becoming scratched, do not use metal utensils or knives on the non-stick surface. Scratches in the coating may cause the coating to peel.

You can find the following nonstick high quality bake ware at your nearest Home Centre Stores.
