Bakeware is one of those things you either use solely at holidays or all the time, depending on your habits. Still, everyone needs a solid collection. Traditional bakeware sets used to come in a pretty standard form, but with the options we have today, from ceramic bakeware to silicone bakeware, it’s a good idea to check out your options in this department. Here are a few of our favorites.
For stoneware, Le Creuset baker sets are tough to beat. Their baking dishes are all-in-one solutions in which you can bake, slice, serve and store your dish. The finish resists chipping, scratching and staining, and is microwave, freezer and oven safe. In addition, the rainbow of colors you have to choose from make going from oven to table a breeze.
If molded bundt cakes, pineapple upside down cakes, mini-scone pans and lidded cake pans are your baking style, Nordic Ware bakeware is what you’re looking for. American-owned and family operated Nordic Ware makes some of the best non-stick solutions in the baking world.
