Anolon Nonstick Meat Loaf Pan Set Review

anolon-nonstick-meat-loaf-pan-setIf you love making meat loaf then you will love this pan. Not only is it strong and durable and does a great job of cooking meatloaf but it also works at reducing the amount of fat you will eat making this a healthy way to cook meat loaf.

The pan comes in two pieces – the pan itself and an insert which helps to drain away the fat from the meatloaf. This means you will have still have a moist meatloaf but not meat loaf that is dripping in fat.

This pan is about the size for a 2lb meat loaf recipe.

What We Like

  • This is not just for meat loaf. You can even bake cakes or bread in this pan.
  • Limited lifetime warranty.
  • Strong, solid and durable.
  • The nonstick surface makes clean up quick and easy.
  • This is dishwasher safe but we recommend hand washing wherever possible.
  • This meatloaf pan has silicone handles.
  • It makes a great meatloaf and drains most of the fat right away.

What We Don’t Like

  • The price may be an issue for some. You can finder cheaper versions of this style of meat loaf pan but this is one that should last you a lifetime so it is definitely a good investment.

Chicago Metallic Muffin Pan – Enjoy the Muffin Tops

chicago-metallic-muffin-panWho doesn’t love freshly baked muffins?

Just about everyone I know certainly does. And there are some people I know that just eat the muffin tops and leave the rest of the muffin.

With a Chicago metallic muffin pan you can bake 6 delicious muffins at home that look as good as shop brought muffins. And because  each of the muffin pans measures 4 inches your muffins will be a nice large uniform size.

My particular favorites are chocolate chip muffins and boysenberry muffins.

chicago-metallic-non-stick-12-cup-muffin-panWith my old muffin pan it was difficult to gt them clean even in the dishwasher. Well you won’t have that problem in cleaning the Chicago Metallic Muffin Pans as they have a Silverstone coating that is easy to clean and the muffins come out of the pans with ease.

Chicago muffin pans are  also available in a 12 pan size so you can make even more delicious muffins. The cup size is smaller than the  6 cup size with the pan size of 2.75 inch across x 1.25 inch deep.

This is another great pan but if you are like me you will prefer the lovely large muffins produced with the 6 pan size.
