Grazia® Silicone 24 Cup Mini Muffin Pan {Review}

Baking is definitely my thing.  I would eat sweet breads and muffins all day if I could.  Since a chef is only as good as their equipment (is that even a phrase?), I’m tickled over my new 24-cup muffin pan from Grazia.  This little pan is going to get an immense amount of use!

IMG_0043I love this pan.  I really love silicone bake ware.  It is virtually indestructible and it can handle anything you throw at it.  You can use it in the oven, the microwave, and the freezer, and then throw it in the dishwasher when you’re done.  The flexible mold makes it ideal for storing since it can fit in odd spaces and weighs hardly anything at all.

We tried a batch of muffins last night and just like I expected, this pan worked like a champ.  You simply spray this with oil like you would a normal pan, and cook it at the temp and time as usual.  The silicone really allows for even cooking all around, and it makes popping these mini muffins out as easy as a little squeeze underneath.

Compared to other silicone bakeware I own, I think this is one of the thickest, which is great for durability.  I like the textured surface and how this allows for a full two dozen to cook in one batch.  I’m left with zero mess, zero scraping, and I’ll never have to worry about rust.  Thanks, Grazia!

You can purchase this mini muffin pan HERE on Amazon for $16.88 on sale today.

Tis the season to get BAKING!  Our oven is getting used nightly and I love it!  There are quite a bit of rolls, cookies, casseroles, and cakes being made, and weak-sauce tools and kitchen equipment just aren’t making the cut.  I don’t know how many measuring cup handles have busted in the last few months, but its made orphans out of a lot of my measuring cup sets, and my muffin tins are looking more rusted and warped than ever.  Time for Bellemain to step in!

Its high time we mothers of the kitchen looked into better materials for our cooking needs.  We don’t have to deal with busted measuring cups and warped, rusted muffin tins!  Have you ever used a silicone muffin tin, or a stainless steel set of measuring cups?  There are so many reasons why these products are excellent in the kitchen.

IMG_8844

Let’s start with the measuring cups.  There’s just something so wonderful about having a sturdy measuring device in your hand.  One that won’t bend or break.  The shape of these cups, mainly the round bottom, is great for easily dumping out all the ingredients without flour remaining in the creases.  They wash very well and the small lip on the edge is great for when the cups are nested, when they are resting in bowls, or when you want another finger on the cup to keep in steady.  The chain that holds the set together is a little too chunky, so I’ve removed it, and the cups are much easier to access.  My only other critique is that I wish the handles were a little thicker, only so that when you clench the handle in your fist, the thin edges don’t bite into your fingers.  I really like that the measurement marking is engraved in the handle and won’t rub off with time much like cheaper cups made of plastic.  Can you tell I’ve been through my share of poor-quality measuring cups?!  These are such a breath of fresh air.  Shiny and glossy, these sure look great in the kitchen!

 The muffin tin is also fantastic.  Silicone is the way to go!  I keep praising anything of silicone to my relatives, convinced that these are the key to a well-working kitchen.  Silicone really shines when it comes to storing.  Instead of stacking awkward pans, clanking and scratching as you go, these can bend into smaller or oddly shaped spaces and they don’t weigh a thing.  They obviously don’t rust, and popping out sticky muffins has never been easier.  This muffin tin is microwaveable (so that you can make microwave fudge and melt crayon disks!), dishwasher-safe, and can handle oven temperatures up to 500°.  It is scratch-proof and cools almost instantly when taken out of the oven.   I’ve been using these non-stop and they look just as new.  They wash very well, show no signs of wear, and being able to store it anywhere is wonderful.  I have also not noticed any browning like I have on other silicone muffin tins.  What an excellent product.  I’m convinced it will last a lifetime, and that all of my in-laws deserve one of these for Christmas.
