My first post for 2015 is about some bake ware I’ve purchased.   I’ve fallen in love with “Cooks Bake ware” which is sold only at JCPenny.

During the holidays I had to bake several cakes, the cake pan I had was very old with a lever that you move around the pan to loosen the cake from the sides and bottom of the cake pan.  Sometimes some of the cake would be left inside the pan.  I decided it was time to replace the pan.  I went to JCPenny in search of a cake pan; to my surprise they were having a sale on some of their bake ware.  The salesperson told me Cooks was a very good product and she highly recommends it.  She said she uses it herself, so I took her advice and purchased a few items.  I found this heavy-gauge steel 9” Round Cake pan, its non-stick and I love the handles.  I baked my first ever red velvet cake in this pan, once the cake pan cooled; the cake slide right out of the pan, it was perfect.  To keep these cake pans in good condition, do not use metal or sharp-edged utensils which will scratch the nonstick surfaces.  It’s recommended not to let them sit in water overnight, although they are dishwasher safe, it’s recommended not to use dishwasher detergent tables because the concentrated cleaner will damage the finish.  It’s best to hand wash the pans and dry them promptly and thoroughly after washing.

These are some of the other bake ware/cookware I purchased.

 I purchased this 2-pc Hard Anodized Skillet Set on the morning of January 11, 2015 and I used it that same night.  I remembered when I purchased my cake pans; the salesperson told me Anodized was much better than aluminum because eventually the enamel starts to peel off of the aluminum cookware.   I stir-fried some veggies to make an omelet for my breakfast the next morning, let me tell you the omelet slid right out of the pan.  

I’m very happy with the Cooks products and I will be purchasing more in the very near future.
