Americraft Cookware Review and Giveaway!


Americraft Cookware is an energy-efficient, cooking system that embraces traditional cooking methods while capturing the magic of Vapor Technology to cook foods quicker, at lower temperatures, and without added fat or excess water, enduring recipes stay nutritious, flavorful, and appetizing.  In addition to a line of cookware, they also offer multi-ply bakeware that uses multiple layers of metal to make consistent, even heating, better heat conductivity, and reduced cooking times.  


I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to review two great products. Their large Cookie Sheet, 14" x 17.5", is designed to accommodate a lot of small cookies or a few monster cookies. They can also be used to heat up frozen appetizers. Their 9" Round Cake Pans are sold in pairs to help you make a 2-layer recipe easy. The feature handles, making it the perfect oven-friendly design. 



My kids actually baked these (hence the mess!)
Review: I often don't bake cookies because I have a terrible time keeping them from burning or crumbling when I try to remove them from the pan. Seeing the obvious quality of the cookie sheet had me wondering if the cause of my cookie disasters was my cheap pans rather than my baking skills.  This Cookie Sheet was superb. In order to compare it to cheaper cookie sheets I have sitting in my cupboard, I cooked one batch of cookies on each of the two sheets. The Americraft sheet's cookies came out perfectly baked and were easily removed from the sheet with little effort. The old cookie sheet produced cookies that crumbled when I tried to remove them from the pan. Turns out my baking skills are just fine and I no longer have a need for those crappy pans in my cabinet any longer!

I absolutely loved the design of the cake pans. The handles made it SO much easier to pull them out of the oven.  I was amazed at how evenly the cakes cooked up. Usually I have to trim off a large amount of cake which tends to bubble in the middle, but these came out quite flat! I also noticed that the bake time was decreased with this pan - by about 4-5 minutes.   I put the normal amount of Crisco and flour that I usually use but the cake did stick a bit to the pan so I will need to remember to use a bit more next time.  
The cake baked up evenly and without the necessary bubble I often need to trim off.

Overall, this is the best bakeware I have ever used. Although the bakeware is more expensive than any other pans or cookie sheets I have ever purchased, I would consider it an worthwhile  investment. I have a feeling these may last close to forever and if I consider the amount of money I spend on cheaper pans/sheets with the need to replace them every few years, this one-time investment in superior quality bakeware is well worth it.

I wish they made it possible to really look at the various pieces individually, but the 360 Cookware collection would probably be very sturdy.
