Chinet Bakeware® Review and Giveaway


I have a new and exciting product to share with you all today... Introducing Chinet Bakeware®! Yes, you read that right, the same people that make sturdy paper plates, and other disposable tableware have come up with an attractive line of non-stick and disposable bakeware that you don't have to worry about leaving behind. Ever taken a dish to a potluck, a school event, or to a neighbor and never gotten it back? Well with Chinet Bakeware®, you can bake up your favorite cheesy casserole, or gooey almond bars and take them anywhere. They even come with crystal clear lids so you can see inside while protecting the contents.

Chinet Bakeware® baking pans currently come in 4 different sizes- a 9x13, 8x8, and 2 oval casserole sizes. You can click the link HERE to see the measurements and capacity of Chinet Bakeware®. Each pack comes in a set of three, with the exception of the rectangular baker, it comes in a set of two. The bakeware is made in the USA of 90% recycled material. While the base is not recyclable, the lid is. One of the first things you'll notice about the bakeware is that it's just as sturdy as their paper plates. You can fill them and hold them without them collapsing or wobbling like foil bakers do. I tend to reach into the oven with one hand to take things out of the oven and I noticed that once heated, the bakeware was a little less rigid, so be sure to use both hands when removing the Chinet Bakeware® from the oven. 


The Chinet Bakeware® goes into the oven and onto the oven rack just like any other bakeware, or if you prefer you can place it on a sheet pan. The baking time and temperature does not need to be adjusted, but keep in mind that all ovens vary. It is paper but it's not going to burn or catch fire. It is oven safe up to 400 degrees F. though should NOT be used on the broil setting. Another good thing about these pans is that you can reheat food in them either in the microwave or oven, no need to transfer it to another pan. They're also freezer safe. Each pack of Chinet Bakeware® comes with instructions for use and tells you what you can and cannot do with the bakeware so if you have questions about the oven temperature or reheating, you can refer to the enclosed card.


This bakeware is also attractive and looks more like casserole dishes and bakeware that one would use in the home. It has a pale green exterior and black non-stick interior. I'd prefer if the non-stick liking came in a lighter color so it resembles stoneware, but the color surely does not affect the functionality of the product, it's just a personal preference. The non-stick lining is completely safe and non-toxic and it will not flake or scrape off with typical serving actions. Note: The bakeware is designed for one-time use and should not be washed and reused as it can weaken the pan.


My neighbor fell and broke her arm a couple weeks ago and had to have surgery on her shoulder. I baked up an Enchilada Casserole and some Almond Jam bars in these pans to take over to her. I did not spray the pans with non-stick spray and I have to admit I was a tad skeptical about them sticking. I waited for the bars to cool before cutting into them and they popped right out of the pan just as the brand promised. Sweet success! I did accidentally poke a tiny hole into the side of the pan with the tip of my knife, so be careful when cutting. My neighbor enjoyed the meal and I didn't have to worry about collecting my pans from her, nor did she have to worry about washing and returning them to me. Chinet sent me the bakeware for free but I was not compensated in any other way and the opinion that I express on here is my own. I would definitely purchase Chinet Bakeware® on my own. It is available in stores and online at Alice.com. I saw them this weekend at Wal-Mart and the average price was $4.99 per set. To find Chinet Bakeware® near you, click HERE.

I was going to give away one of my unused sets of Chinet Bakeware®, so one of you could try it out, but the generous folks at Chinet said they could do better than that. One lucky winner will receive a complete set (all 4 sizes) of Chinet Bakeware® courtesy of Chinet.


All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post telling me what your favorite potluck dish is. If you fail to answer that question your entry will not be counted. One comment per person please. Please make sure I have a way to contact you if you win- leave an email address if necessary. US residents only. I will announce a winner at the end of the week. Good luck!        

Recipes:
  • Enchilada Casserole ( I added another layer of tortillas to the top of the casserole and used more cheese. I also added salt and garlic to the meat mixture.)
  • Almond Jam Bars

I just made slutty brownies- they are amazing...choc chip cookie dough, Oreo layer, brownies on top. I mixed in walnuts for the brownie layer on top and gave it some crunch!!! Then cut them in tiny circle two bites sizes using a biscuit cutter. Cookie cutter would work too just not too big : ))

I'm on a committee to make meals for families in our church who have had illnesses or deaths in the family. These would be great since they wouldn't need to be returned. Sometimes during 'busy' periods, I'm out of baking dishes!
One of my faves to bring to potlucks is a broccoli slaw. Meatballs too.

Sandra said...

For potlucks I love to share Taco Salad or a Brownie Trifle.

TnMuleGal said...

My favorite potluck would have to be Hash Brown casserole hands down! Love the cheesy gooey goodness, and it's always the first dish to go at my family's get-togethers.

Who can go to a pot luck without Mac and Cheese? I love taking it to pot lucks and am sad when my dish comes home empty. :)

Muffin said...

CAKE!! It's one of my favorite things to bake, so I take every chance I can get. :)

Taterbug said...

I use potlucks as an excuse to make a new dessert recipe - typically some sort of sheet cake. Although, I think the last one I brought was a big pan of caramel brownies. These pans would be excellent for that, since I hate keeping track of my (one and only) 9 x 13" casserole dish. And if they're nonstick, I wouldn't have to worry about the brownies congealing to the side. :)

My favorite potluck recipe is my Hashbrown Casserole recipe that I adapted from several recipes. It always is a huge hit and is my husbands favorite (even over his own mother's recipe). He is like a little boy on Christmas when he knows I am making it, it's very cute. It's easy and tasty! What could be better! I love to make batches ahead and keep in the freezer and these would be the perfect dishes for that.
