I love having quality products in my kitchen. (I think I’ve mentioned that before.) When I cook and bake I want things that are easy to use and help my bake/cook better. I recently got to try the Artisan Bakeware small loaf pan in my kitchen. I am familiar with clay/pottery baking. I sold Pampered Chef for years, and my kitchen is filled to the brim with stones. I use them all the time and love them too.
Artisan Bakeware is a product of Emerson Creek Pottery. Their bakeware is lead-free, handmade ceramic that is also unglazed. Having an unglazed ceramic is great for baking. It allows the bakeware to become seasoned which makes subsequent baking easier and better. Emerson Creek Pottery carries a big variety of ceramic items. In the Artisan line they have everything, such as, the oval baking dish, loaf pans, pie plates and bread pots. And they are all handpainted with their original Creeping Thyme pattern. There are other lines of products with so many other options. I could go on and on with all they have. Great things!
I found the Artisan Bakeware small loaf pan to be the perfect little gift-maker. You can easily make a small bread recipe and bake it in this pan to give and share. In my past experience with mini-loaf pans, a regular bread recipe is enough for 4 small loaf pans like this. So if you make a recipe, you’ll want to cut it by ¼. This is a great housewarming gift. You can bake a little loaf of banana bread in the pan and just give them the bread and the pan. I think that would be a great gift for anyone. You’ll enjoy this great little pan for yourself as well.
