Durable Pans For Baking

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

Quick question...

My mom gave me a wonderful heavy-duty (nice) baking pan. I would like to have a variety of nice pans for baking and cooking. I'm wanting pans to bake donuts, frenchbread, English muffins, hotdog/hamburger buns: basically, I need the pans I can't find at Wal-mart.

I really would like not to get cheap pans. If I made a small investment in a new "expensive" pan every few months, before long I would have a collection of really durable bakeware.

Currently, I use whatever Wal-mart (or where-ever) has on sale. But it warps, stains, and doesn't bake evenly.

So, can I ask any of you "serious" bakers out there to share where you purchase you products?

Thanks in advance. -Julie :)

I like to shop at Linens and Things because they are moderately priced. I bought Farberware baking pans and sheets and I like them. They are much heavier in weight than cheap pans, but they are not really expensive. Linens and Things also have sales often. I got my bake ware buy one get one free! :D

Thanks Jenny! I will have to see if our closest mall has a Linens and Things. If not, maybe I can order on-line. Affordable is wonderful! I've been paying cheap prices, but also getting cheaply made products. I would love to find an affordable line of bakeware/pans that has a good, heavy quality and good variety of products. Thanks for your tip! B)

I bought some really nice pans at The Home Store. Also saw them at TJ Maxx. There were two brands that looked exactly alike. One was Calphalon and I cant remember the name of the other one. They were 5.99, 7.99 and 9.99 for the largest cookie sheet sized one. They were grayish silver colored, very heavy and easy to clean. I went back and got a 9x9 one. I love them.

That's awesome...I hadn't even thought of TJ Maxx, Ross, or Marshall's (all those stores are similar and in my area). When we sell our house (and I have a little money), I'm going shopping!!!!!!! :D

I second the King Arthur Flour website for high quality pans for all kinds of bread shapes, but be warned they will put you on their mailing list and send you their catalog full of pictures of glutenous bread! It's like celiac porn. :lol:

I have one Calphalon pot and I love it! I bought one for me and one for my son's daycare provider when he first went gluten free. I don't remember how much I paid exactly, but I think it was $20+ for a little pot. Those pans are great, if you find them at a discount store buy all you can! (unless you live in Portland Oregon. :lol: )

Lee,

"Celiac porn"...you're killing me! :P HA! :lol:

Jenny,

$20+ for a little pot? For that much, I want a pot big enough to bathe in ;) or a 14k gold pot that I can weld into jewlry. :P

gluten-free mom,

I'm gonna google "Chicago Metallic." Thanks for the info.! B)

Blessings and baking,

-Julie

What about Stoneware? I only use Pampered Chef stoneware now since I am hooked. I have never had food bake so evenly before. I also like Paderno pans.

I do have a King Arthur deep dish stone pizza pan and I love it. There was recently an article in The Washington Post about a lady who found out that she had celiacs and the pizza recipe was so close to regular. Nothing liek any of the mixes or frozen ones I have tried.
