Graniteware for Baking

My personal choice for bakeware is Granite Ware or glass. Here’s why I like it:

  • Granite Ware Better Browning series is Made in USA
  • Carbon Steel core is more energy efficient and safer
  • Porcelain enamel surface is an inert, non-porous and naturally non-stick surface
  • No PFOA, PTFE or other harmful chemicals and are dishwasher safe
  • Carbon steel core provides excellent heat distribution
  • Naturally non-stick porcelain enamel surface
  • No harsh metals are used
  • Dishwasher and metal utensil safe

For cookware I use stainless steel, cast iron or glass. We don’t radiate (microwave) our food we use a toaster oven or reheat food on the stove top.
