Stone Cookware gets A+

by Brad Pilon

I like to bake.

I like to bake ALMOST as much as I like to eat baked goods.

Muffins, cookies, cakes and brownies…I love them all!

The secret to enjoying baking and staying lean is simple – Baked goods are for sharing.

And with the more people the better.

Since I do bake a lot, and I enjoy sharing my baked goods, I take a certain pride in both their taste and appearance. Which is why I was really happy when I received stone cookware from the pampered chef last Christmas.

 Stone Cookware gets A+

This stuff is great! Even cooking temperature (no nasty ‘hot spots’), easy clean up…and an even color all the way through on your final product – No more golden brown on the top of the cookie, burnt brown on the bottom!

Here’s a quick tip- With stone cookware you get what you pay for..I’ve used a whole range over the last year and nothing beats my Pampered chef set.

Thanks for this post, Brad! I love my stoneware. Another great thing about Pampered Chef stoneware is that it is made with high quality lead free clay and baked at very high temperatures, which means it has tight pores and does not absorb odors and flavors like some inferior stoneware. And it’s super easy to clean.

Stoneware purchased at discount outlets is often produced abroad, is NOT guaranteed to be lead free, and is very porous so it absorbs every flavor of everything you cook.

I find it’s worth it to pay a little more for the good stuff that will last. And most Pampered Chef items come with a minimum one year guarantee, many products with a lifetime guarantee.

If you’re cooking for one or two, PC makes small round and oval stoneware baking dishes that fit right in the toaster oven. They even make a stoneware toaster oven tray! I use a number of their products and I have always been satisfied with every product purchased through Pampered Chef.

No, I don’t sell the stuff, but after Brad’s and my rave reviews there may be readers wanting to buy it, so I am attaching a link below for those of you who just can’t wait to start shopping.

Thanks Mary,

I had no clue so much went into stoneware.

Good to hear its lead free, and the “tight pores” explains why this stoneware cleans so much better than the other stuff.
