The Usefulness of Tiny Baking Pans

Share |

Written by: Dolores Hark

A year or so back, I was the lucky recipient of a gift card. It’s not exactly easy to get to the particular physical location so I was keen to just use the value up.

Ended up with like eight of these small bread pans, thinking when I got home, hmmm, maybe that was silly.

It turns out that these little pans have been incredibly useful. I’ve taken to using them for storing single-serve frozen meals that I can easily stick in the freezer.

In this case, I do first take a layer of Saran Wrap to cover the food in order to help prevent freezer burn, followed by a top layer of tin foil. Not sure how long this keeps the food; generally I try not to leave these in the freezer too long, especially dishes with cheese, but so far I’ve been pretty pleased with the results all around. I used to store things in jars or tupperware, and then I’d end up throwing things out since I’d have to wait through a bit of defrosting time, then inevitably I seem to get distracted between taking the food out and actually heating it up. This just works a lot better for me – I think of it, I take it out, I put it in the oven – skipping the step of having to maneuver the frozen food from jar to pot.
