A simple design is deceptively hard to get right. This stainless steel oven pan is our new favourite.
NOTE: sometimes, it warps up at the edges while it is in a hot oven, but it goes back into shape when it cools, and it doesn't affect how it cooks or cleans.
We've settled on two sizes. The medium is the one that gets most used in our kitchens, and this large one comes out for big batches and family gatherings.
Dimensions: 40.5cm x 30.5cm x 2.5cm
- even browning of grilled vegetables
- roasting spuds, wedges, root veg
- fast roasting meats
- grilling salmon and chicken
- baking muesli bars, and brownies
- making raw cashew vegan slice
If you're actively moving towards a natural, non-toxic home, then one area to consider is what you cook your food in. For years we cooked in non-stick oven dishes with coatings that peeled off and went into our food and our bodies.
These products are still available with different names for different coating types, but we've moved to use these stainless steel baking pans for 90% of our oven baking needs.
They clean up quickly and will be as good in ten years as they are today. We find them more "non-stick" than the surfaces sold as "non-stick."
Packaged in a lovely box, this makes the perfect plastic-free gift for the cook or foodie in your life.
