Baking trays

I recently bought a baking tray that was guaranteed not to warp or twist. Unfortunately said baking tray did warp in use even though I didn't have the oven up to the "high" temperature on the instructions which came with the baking tray.

Can anyone, please, recommend a baking tray that absolutely will not warp in the oven<

At the same time I also bought a brownie pan of the same make and from the same store which also said that it would not warp or twist. Unfortunately when taking off the cardboard wrapper this pan was not even able to sit flat on the worktop and was also weighted so that it would have sent the contents down one end. Both these items, of the same brand and from the same well known chain, went back for a refund.

Mermaid do not warp or twist, but they are not non stick.

More importantly, you cannot put them into the dishwasher which I find totally unacceptable in this day and age.

I also have some very good and solid Kenwood ones.

I got some really good baking trays in the Pro-cook shop in Swindon outlet centre, there's also one at Cheshire Oaks outlet.

They also have a web site.

Silverwood are good. Don't go in the dishwasher, but that is acceptable as they are so easy to wash. It's the metal they are made of that doesn't agree with dishwasher detergent.

I seriously do not find it acceptable at all, EVER, for something not to be dishwasher proof.

I know how you feel Maruki, makes me mad when I am baking something fairly liquid and it ends up lopsided. I dread the sound of the tray buckling after a few minutes in the oven. Here in the States I buy Wilton bakeware, but I don't know if it is available in the UK. Sadly,gone are the the days of sturdy pans and trays like our mothers and grandmothers used to use.

There are several things (though I don't necessarily possess them) which do not go in the dishwasher. That does not make them 'not acceptable'.

There are also several things that do not go in the washing machine and have to be hand-washed, but I treasure them all the same.

Sorry, James, Silverwood items are just made of a metal which cannot be dishwashed. But they are good!

But it DOES to me, Welshcookie.

There is just no need for it these days.

Metal does not go into the dishwasher? Since when? All mine does!

Now, when I shop it has to up to the job AND be dishwasher proof. I am the consumer ans I will vote with my feet with these companies still living in the dark ages.

Its 2012 not 1971 after all.

Lakeland Baking Trays

Lakeland have a good selection of baking trays that are very sturdy and don't seem to warp in the oven and their customer service is so good that they will help you get what you are looking for.

Yes I agree with Lakeland being the place to go. If they sell you a tray that is not supposed to warp and it does they will refund or replace. If you ring their customer services or go in a store they will advise you. I've nevr known a company with better customer service. They are not cheap but they are worth every penny.
As far as the dishwasher debate goes I would never in a million years put my global knives in a dishwasher as it would blunt them and it would be just as easy to wash a knife as it would be to sharpen it!
Dishwashers are also not good for crystal and I would not put my best cutlery in either.
I suppose it is what is important to you. I would rather wash the occasional item up and have some really nice top of the range things that fare better for hand washing.
I also have a few dishes and pans that wouldn't fit in the dishwasher, like my wok for instance.
I think it's the salt that damages things, especially metal things.
Still, it's all down to personal choice in the end.

I'm afraid I am with James by preference.

Although I also have some non-dishwasher items, like my little pudding basins for sticky toffee puds etc, and one flat baking tray in the same stuff.

I also have 3 black enamel baking trays with sides, that are warp proof (& they weren't expensive either), they are great for the dishwasher and they can be scrubbed a bit with a scrunchy thing too. I think enamel bakeware is underrated these days.

Thank you all very much for your suggestions. I will go and look at the ones suggested before I make a final decision but your experiences have been very helpful.

Mini Cheesecake pans

Hi,

I'd like to make approximately 80 miniature cheesecakes and wondered did anyone know of a good either spring-form or base release multi pan - ideally able to make 6-8 cakes at a time? I have found one online by NorPro but they are only 2" by 1.5" which would be a little small for my purposes. All suggestions welcome!

Thanks

Mini cheesecakes

I bought a tin recently from Lakeland (is there a better shop in the whole world?) which (I think, without checking) makes 12 tiny cakes/cheesecakes/whatever - it has loose bottoms and I'm going to try making some of Delia's chocolate truffle cakes in it. Its non-stick and although I haven't had a chance to use it yet, I would thoroughly recommend you check out their website (www.lakeland.co.uk). On the rare occasion I have been disatissfied with anything they have refunded without quibble). Another tin that is fantastic and which I have used repeatedly makes mini quiche - you get a wooden tool to push the pastry into the tin and I can guarantee you will get good results. I often make them when I have some spare time and freeze them. They reheat in about 10-15 mins and are delicious hot or cold. They are a great standby to have, especially for unexpected guests. They look great and taste lovely too - you can put a variety of fillings in depending on what you like. Good luck.
