Toddler Girl Floral Print Dress Review
Henry Perkins: I was without a regular oven for over 3 months while remodeling my kitchen, and learned a lot about toaster oven cooking in that time. This NordicWare pan works very well for baking half a cake mix at a time. After 7 mixes (14 uses) and a couple of small lasagnas it's still in great shape. I used butter flavor Crisco to grease the pan for each cake, only nylon spatulas to remove the food, and nothing but a soft sponge and soapy water to clean the pan. (I *definitely* didn't use any of those incredibly abrasive Scotch-Brite sponges.) After reading other reviews I was worried about durability and was extra cautious. In any event this little pan is still good as new. I'm probably going to continue to use it during the hot summer months so I don't needlessly heat up my kitchen.I've got a couple of toaster oven cooking tips that may be generally helpful. If your toaster oven is like mine (an *original* Black & Decker TRO -- from before they had model numbers) there's a stamped sheet steel bottom flap that crumbs, melted cheese, and whatever falls down on. You can improve both the evenness of heating and ease of cleaning by opening this flap up and scouring it to a high shine with steel wool. Then crumbs and even baked-on cheese will brush off easily without scraping. I did this several years ago, and haven't needed anything other than a damp sponge to get the crumb flap spotless since. If you do the same sort of scouring on your aluminum baking tray you can cook (half) pizzas there and the cleanup is pretty easy, too.I got through my kitchen remodel with a hot plate, toaster oven, and electric tea kettle, and wasn't greatly inconvenienced. This NordicWare pan helped get me through it.Recommended.
mcc: This is the perfect size pan for my Cuisinart toaster. Seems to be well made and not too thin, so it should cook items evenly. It is also a great size for making cornbread. I plan to buy several in November for stocking presents. The perfect gift for people who have everything.
Nocturnal: It's the right size and I wish more bakeware companies made these smaller sizes because the "normal" size pans don't fit in our convection oven and we can't use glass or that plastic stuff. It's hard to find smaller size metal bakeware. But this one, and all the others with a non-stick surface, become useless after 2 or 3 uses--the non-stick surface starts to flake off (onto the food cooked in it) which is not healthy for you. And we don't have a dishwasher so it can't be blamed on that machine. We use the teflon-friendly utensils etc. but the stuff still flakes off. The manufacturers ought to just give up on the non-stick stuff and let us have plain ol' stainless steel--at least it's tough and can withstand scouring when needed, you can use Oven-off on badly burned crusty stuff, you can soak it in an ammonia-baking soda solution to lift off cooked-on food; you can still use the pan. These non-stick pans just start losing their non-stick surface within 2 or 3 uses, and the non-stick stuff is stuck to your food! Not good, not good, not good.
Paula Jo Carr: This is used nearly weekly to reheat my leftovers... yes even single folks have left overs too! What more can I say about it --- nothing!
AlmostEverything84: Despite a lot of negative reviews I went ahead a purchased this. The measurements are accurate. I just really needed to replace my current toaster pan that was in there. It has become all black and smoked when the toaster was on. I like that this has the grill rack in it because everything will just trip into the pan. I washed when I first got it but and yes the coating was coming off a bit. In fact it came chipped a little but it really doesn't matter to me. If your looking for an easy replacement for a old pan this works. If your looking for something really nice you should keep looking.
