“ Brand: Square / Type: Oven trays „
In my local Pound Land they do a range of bake ware called Mini Cookware, I must admit I was first drawn to this due to the colour, a lovely mid pink, the other colour choice available was a bright lime green, and after looking at them every time I went in I decided to buy a couple. They come in several shapes and sizes but the ones I opted for are oblong in shape.
My Mini Cookware dishes are as I mentioned a nice pink colour on the outside and white on the inside. They have 2 little handles on each end which are also done in the pink colour, despite these being quite small they are still easy to use. The outside of the dishes have a lined texture / pattern running around them which just takes the plainness off.
The dishes are microwaveable, oven proof and dishwasher safe. My little dishes measure approximately 10 x 13 cm's and are 4cm's deep, obviously not family sized but I have had a lot of use from them.
When I first took these little dishes home my husband laughed at me for buying them and said we would never use them, well we have, they are an ideal size for individual puddings. I have made apple crumbles in them and sponge puddings too, being microwavable means I can get something cooked in them in advance and then pop it in the microwave when needed.
I have done lasagne in them and for an average person the size is ideal along with some salad and crusty bread but my husband has such a large appetite this wasn't enough for him.
They are also ideal for individual side dishes such as potato grain or even a medium sized baled potato fits nicely in them.
I have since bought my mum some as she suffers with arthritis and cant lift heavy things from the oven these are perfect for her.
Of course you don't have to use them for cooking they would make nice little nibble/snack dishes for nuts etc.
My little Mini Cookware dishes have been in the microwave, oven and dishwasher many times and still look as new, no colour has worn from them and they haven't stained. I've been really pleased with them and would recommend them to anyone, at just £1.00 each its easy to get your moneys worth from them.
