Last Friday when I had to bake an amazing amount of bread, I borrowed cookie sheets from friends. One of my friends loaned me all her stoneware. I was excited to use it, as I just ordered some for myself from The Pampered Chef but my ordered hasn't arrived yet. I have been trying to get away from non-stick cookware and move to healthier options. It's been slow, just because cookware of any kind is expensive. But I have gotten to where the only teflon I had was in my baking sheets, muffin tins, bread pans and one skillet. I was able to get all the stoneware I wanted- pizza stones (which will double as cookie sheets), loaf pans, muffin pans and I got a stainless steel skillet with lid from them- which I am excited to use. I do have a large cast iron skillet, which I really like, but couldn't find a lid for it.
Here is an article on the dangers of teflon, and teflon is in anything that claims to be non-stick.
As I was baking the bread, I was surprised at the difference in baking with a stone- I took a picture of it:
The bread on the stoneware rose and baked so pretty! You can see on the regular baking sheet, the bread didn't rise as much.
I can hardly wait for my order to come and I can use stoneware with everything!
