The folks from Chinet reached out to me to check out their new non-stick bakeware. I was curious, so I agreed. What arrived was Chinet’s non-stick bakeware but an idea for a holiday hostess gift for the bakers in your life. A gift basket with a baking mix, Stonewall Kitchens Vanilla Bean Cheesecake bar mix,Loveless Café Blackberry Preserves, the Chinet 8 x 8 non-stick pan, a spatula all wrapped up in holiday finery.
I followed the instructions for the cheesecake bars per Stonewall Kitchens instructions but, they said to oil your pan – I did not. The test was on as to with what ease I would be able to remove slices of the cheesecake bars from the Chinet non-stick disposable bakeware.
The Chinet non-stick pan cooked evenly when placed on the middle rack in the middle of the oven. When moving the pan to the oven, use both hands – it is sturdy but if your filling is heavy, keep both hands on the pan. The cheesecake bars came out of the Chinet non-stick baking pan easily, in fact, much easier than a coated metal pan.
The pans are not created for multiple uses. They are convenient when traveling with baked goods with its own clear cover.
As for Stonewall’s mix, it is very good – good texture and flavor. As in my slideshow you will note you must supply your own cream cheese and eggs.
The Chinet non-stick baking pans do make a good base for hostess or host gifts stuffed with all kinds of baking goodies.
