CSN Review: New Bakeware

Several weeks ago, I hinted that CSN Stores had asked me to participate in a product review with them.  Of course, I jumped at the opportunity and I went straight for the kitchen items

With my newest obsession--delving into the world of whole foods and just getting back to basics, I have read that aluminum is not that great for you.  Consequently, we now use aluminum free baking powder and aluminum free deodorant in our household--much to my Hubby's exasperation.  No, he really is supportive in all these changes, but he LOVES to tease me about turning into a hippy.  Little does he know that I am sure I have only scratched the surface--I SO haven't even come close to reaching crunchy status. 

That said, I have been wanting to replace some of my aluminum bakeware and CSN Stores provided a wonderful opportunity!  Several months back I started looking for stainless steel cookie sheets and muffin tins (just when I was out and about--I wasn't exactly on a mission) but I haven't found any stores here in SmallTown that carry stainless steel bakeware.  Everything is either aluminum or has non-stick coating (like Teflon--and don't even get me started on the dangers of Teflon.  It really makes you think, is any modern convenience without consequence?)

Anyhow, back to my new kitchen items...

CSN Stores carries a wide array of different bakeware and one of the neat features is that you can sort products by the type of material the product is made with.  Perfect!  I simply searched for items that were made of stainless steel and their site did the work for me!

I chose to purchase both a stainless steel muffin pan as well as a stainless steel jelly roll/cookie sheet.  My new items came last week, and I have been very happy with my choices.

I was curious to see if there was any difference in baking quality and I haven't seen any at all.  If anything, they bake even better than the aluminum pans I was using previously!  Both pans bake very evenly and both have nice smooth surfaces that my goodies didn't stick too. 

I have been thrilled with my purchases and I will definitely be using CSN Stores again when it comes time to replace some of my other bakeware.   Their site if definitely worth checking out!

Hi Jackie -- I applaud the idea of creating a safer home, and because there's so much misinformation out there about Teflon, I'm not surprised that you are concerned. I'm a representative of DuPont though, and hope you'll let me share some information with you and your readers so that everyone can make truly informed decisions.

Regulatory agencies, consumer groups and health associations all have taken a close look at Teflon. This article highlights what they found -- the bottom line is that you can use Teflon without worry.


I'd truly be glad to share additional information about it if you are interested, and appreciate your consideration of this comment. Cheers, Sara.
