Category: My Paleo Kitchen
This week I’ll cover the Baking Tools I use most often, in addition to the items I covered in last week’s Stovetop Cooking post.
These items get frequent use in my kitchen, and they will in your kitchen if you cook often. You want to make sure they’re
These items are used most often when I bake:
I have specific standards for each of these items. Much like the ingredients of the food I eat, I’m very particular about the ingredients that went into making my kitchen tools.
For baking, I use items that are either stainless steel, ceramic, or Pyrex.
I make a lot of Paleo meatloaf, and my loaf pan is the easiest way to bake it up. It’s also great for making liverwurst and Paleo bread (if you’re into that kind of thing).
This 2 qt Pyrex dish is the one I own. It’s perfect for making a 3 pound meatloaf using a blend of ground beef and pork.
Baking dishes get the most time in my oven. I use them to roast veggies, bake spaghetti squash, make Paleo lasagna, make perfectly crunchy and flat bacon strips, roast whole chickens, and more.
I prefer using ceramic or Pyrex to stainless steel roasters because they cook food more quickly and evenly.
I have 2 baking dishes of different sizes for different uses – 9x13” Pyrex and 8”x10” ceramic.
I have a sturdy, half sheet baking sheet. It’s stainless steel with a lip.
There are a lot of cheap aluminum baking sheets out there – avoid these! The human body has no need for aluminum, and it may cause problems when ingested. Stick with stainless steel.
I like big, stainless steel bowls because I don’t have to worry about chemicals leaching into my food from plastic.
I have a set of various sizes so that I always have the right size for the job.
A necessity for any cook. I don’t pay much attention to what these are made of because they don’t come into contact with your food, so find something that coordinates with your kitchen!
These ones are practical, versatile, and come in several colors:
So these are my Baking Tools that I find most useful. Think I missed something? Tell me in the comments what else you use often!
Next week I’ll post about my favorite Storage Containers.
