I am a kitchen gadget addict and like things in my kitchen that makes my life easier. When my sister asked me what I wanted for a present I told her that Ceramic Baking Beans would be a good idea.
I have been asked by Yuppiechef to do a product review and I can tell you that I use my baking beans often. In fact, I would not mind having a second lot of them as they make such a difference. I know you can use any old beans or rice, and keep and reuse them but these ceramic beans are much easier and user friendly than ordinary beans. The round balls fit snugly and perfectly into my flans and I have even made use of them when making tartlets in my muffin tin.
All you need is decent baking paper to get them out of the pastry shell with ease. The ceramic baking beans are used when blind baking pastry. This is the term used when you bake the pastry before filling it with something.
