Lynette’s baking sheet giveaway
You know those kitchen items that make cooking fun, rather than a chore? For the lucky people out there with KitchenAid mixers and Le Creuset pans, you’ll know what I mean. However, there are more humble kitchen things (that er…cost less than $100!) that every cook becomes a bit attached to. This is one of those things. A few months ago I bought Lynette’s non-stick, re-usable baking sheet because, well, who doesn’t get sick of running out of baking paper and cutting it to the right shape every time? I was originally going to get a silicon baking sheet, but Lynette’s baking sheet caught my eye because it’s a lot thinner and makes for much better heat conductivity. I also bake all of my own bread, mostly at 220-230C, and these can withstand that, whereas not all silicone ones do. Plus they’re available all over New Zealand, so I didn’t have to wait for three weeks and pay $20 for shipping.
After several months of use they have acquired “kitchen essential” status. You can cut the sheets to whatever size you want, and they’re pretty bendy too, so I don’t just line my baking tray, but my cake tin and loaf pan. Cakes come off much better than if you lined the pan with paper, and they also rise much more evenly too (a pleasant bonus surprise). Most importantly, I don’t have to cut a new piece each time. Saves me running out of paper, paying for more paper, and throwing paper out. You just roll up and slip into the box, so they take up no more room than a roll of parchment. At around NZ$28 a sheet (420mm x 330mm), these are also really good value for money.
So I did what most food bloggers would probably not consider doing – I contacted Lynette directly, asking if she’d be interested in being promoted on my blog. I’m not interested in getting paid, so I asked if she’d be keen to share the love by giving away a few baking sheets to lucky Two Spoons readers!
This giveaway is now closed :) Cheers for all the lovely ideas in the comments, it was lots of fun reading them!
If you don’t win, but know any foodies that have it all, rest assured even if they have one of these already they would love another one. I know I would! So you can tick off “reward the cook in my house.” :D NZ stockists listed here.
Good luck, and happy baking :D
