While preserving equipment is the mainstay of our business at Wares of Knutsford, for the last few years we have been working hard on building up our kitchenware department, and at this time of year it takes a real beating as people prepare their Christmas food. In this season you may find our baking tools and cake tins particularly useful.
Baking tins for Christmas
At Wares of Knutsford we have cake tins in a huge variety of shapes and sizes, including baking sheets, deep cake pans, loaf tins, loose based and springform pans, mini and multi hole cake tins, sandwich pans, quiche and tart tins and shaped pans for special cakes such as fluted and savarin pans.
This time of year tends to see a lot of baking going on, both of traditional cakes and also of mince pies, Christmas puddings and all sorts of other desserts and treats. Like any job, baking is made immensely easier and the results are improved by using the correct tools for the job. We hope you will find these in our baking department.
Choosing the right baking tins
As a very minimum requirement, you need the right size tin when baking! Your recipe should guide you to the right size tin but, for example, Christmas cakes require much deeper baking tins than something like a Victoria sponge. Our Master Class deep, round baking pans come in 10cm, 15cm, 18cm, 20cm, 23cm, 25cm and 30cm sizes but for Christmas cake you can also use deep square tins. These are available by Master Class again in 15cm, 18cm, 20cm, 23cm, 25cm and 30cm sizes. Consider too options such as a non stick finish or a loose base – if you are a less than confident or not very experienced cook you may find it easier to remove the cake from the tin this way. All of these tins come with a 20 year guarantee and a five year guarantee for the non-stick coating. They are oven freezer and dishwasher safe.
For making mince pies you will need a multi hole tin, The Master Class deep 12 hole baking pan features a double layer of non stick coating and is made from high quality heavy duty 1mm steel for easy mince pie making. The pan is suitable for use in the oven, freezer and dishwasher.
Master Class bakeware is made by Kitchen Craft, a well known and respected name in kitchenware which is a guarantee of quality.
