Pyrex Clear Glass 17-pc. Bake & Store Set

pyrex-bakeware-setPyrex dishes are always handy and this Pyrex Clear Glass 17-pc. Bake and Store Set is one that you will find use for time and again.

The beauty of this set is that it is a combination of the Pyrex preparation, baking and storage sets.

Being glass means that you don’t need to worry about the cookware becoming rusty or bending like some metal bakeware does but it also means that any burnt on bits take a bit more effort to clean up.  Generally the dish will require soaking to soften the burnt on food.

Most of the dishes come with lids which is really convenient because you can simply pop on the lid and put the leftovers into the refrigerator.

The bowls are ideal for making and storing dips for crackers or chips.

I have had a Pyrex measuring cup for many years and I love how easy it is to read and the wide angle of the handle makes it easy to hold.

This is an ideal set for someone starting out as it has a variety of very useful items in different sizes. And the beauty of Pyrex is that it is safe to use in the microwave, oven, refrigerator and freezer.

The Pyrex clear glass 17 pc bake and store set includes:

  • 1.5-qt. loaf dish
  • 9.5″ flavor savor pie plate
  • 8″ square with blue lid,
  • 2-qt. oblong with blue lid
  • 3-qt. oblong with blue lid
  • 4-qt. oblong with blue lid
  • 2-cup measuring cup
  • 2-cup round storage with blue lid
  • 4-cup round storage with blue lid
  • 7-cup round storage with blue lid

See what I mean, this set something to suit most of your baking requirements.

Eastman Outdoors Slow Cookers, Realtree Camo Slow Cooker

Eastman Slow Cooker 3.5 quart Eastman Slow Cookers  in the camo pattern come in two handy sizes, so you can get the size that you will find more useful to your family situation.

The smaller version is The Eastman Outdoors 3.5 quart slow cooker which ideal for smaller families.

And then there is the 7 quart slow cooker which will feed family and friends when you are entertaining.

Both Eastman slow cookers feature the Realtree  Camo Pattern which will appeal to the masculine members of the family and may even encourage the hunters in the family to cook the game they bring home.

Slow cooking is an ideal way to cook your favorite wild game and of course any traditional slow cooker recipe that your family likes. I love rabbit done in the slow cooker, simply add onions, carrots,fatty bacon, peas, potatoe chunks, herbs and of course the cleaned rabbit bits and let it slowly cook. Hmmmmm

Eastman slow cooker 7 quartBoth of the Eastman Outdoors  Slow cookers have   Low, high and keep warm settings.

Slow cooking is pretty much a set and forget way to cook.  And you can pop in all the ingredients in the morning and when you get home after a long days hunt or a day at work, your meal will be cooked to perfection and be ready to serve. You can cook up some extra vegetables if you haven’t added them already to the slow cooker or even cook some rice in the microwave to serve with your meal.  I find that one cup of rice to 2 cups of water, cooked in the microwave on high for 12 minutes is a quick and easy way to bulk up a meal.

I love my slow cooker, especially in the winter months when all I want to do when I get home is eat something hot and nourishing and then curl up on the couch to read or watch TV.

Pure Komachi by Kai 8-Inch Stainless Steel Bread Knife

Komachi make some exceptional knives that are excellent value for money and their stainless steel bread knife is yet another that has received outstanding reviews on Amazon.

The Pure Komachi by Kai 8-Inch Stainless-Steel Bread Knife is made in Japan using high carbon stainless steel with a flourinated resin coating. It has a full tang which means the blade runs the full length of the knife – this is a sign of a quality knife.
