Chef’s Classic™ Non-Stick Bakeware Specialty Collection

Stamford, CT - March 2006 Food for Thought:

Ensuring Successful Results:
Bakeware comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, from springform pans and bundt pans to square, round and rectangular pieces. Choosing the right pan is a key factor in ensuring the best results for home chefs. The following are some pointers for selecting baking pans:

· Always check your recipes first; baked good recipes usually specify which type of pan to use.

· Look for sturdy, heavy-duty bakeware that distributes heat more evenly and helps ensure consistent results.

· Try to select a pan that fits easily in both your oven and refrigerator for ease of use.

· Keep two identical sheet pans on hand. Placing one pan inside the other and cooking some recipes double-panned will keep the bottom of baked goods from overcooking.

What to Look for When Purchasing Non-Stick Bakeware:

“High-performance is the hallmark of a professional-quality bakeware collection,” says Mary Rodgers, Director of Marketing Communications for Cuisinart. “Today’s consumers are looking for bakeware that will help them consistently create professional quality dishes.” She explains that Cuisinart’s new Chef’s Classic™ Non-Stick Bakeware Specialty Collection addresses this need, while offering a host of convenience features at the same time.
