Taking Guesswork Out Of Baking
(NAPSA) - Baking is an exact science. Precise ingredients, batter amounts, dough placement, oven temperatures and baking times all factor into the equation-along with the bakeware itself, with gauge, color and finish each contributing to good, better or best results.
Now some of the guesswork has been taken out of baking. Baker's Secret Precisionware, a unique line of nonstick bakeware, features Precision Guides stamped into cookie sheets, muffin pans and all of the different cake pan shapes to make baking easier than ever.
With muffin pans, the guides show precisely how much batter to spoon into each cup. Cookie sheets have cookie targets, resembling bull's-eyes, measuring how much dough to use and where to place it so cookies come out evenly sized and spaced just right so they never stick together.
The round, square and oblong cake and loaf pans have fill lines for batter amounts, ensuring that cake layers are even. Stamped around the edges of Precisionware pans are portion guides to help measure serving sizes and calculate the number of pieces in a cake, so no one is shortchanged.
Precisionware is crafted of professional-weight steel with gray nonstick for easy release and effortless cleanups.
