Welcome to another edition of TILT: Things I Like Thursday.
First up is the pizza pan I have used to make every pizza on my blog (here’s the whole list if you’d like it), plus many more. This one was recommended to me by Laura Flowers, previously known as The Cooking Photographer, who is also the person who supplied me with the chocolate chip cookie recipe that won me a blue ribbon! All that to say, I trust this woman, and her recommendation was spot on. This pan bakes up perfect crusts, and has a pebbled surface that prevents anything from sticking to it.
Fun note: this is also the pan I used for the My Little Pony cake display. You can see the surface of the pan in many of the prep photos on that post, and it still looks new after five years of use. It’s made to last.
Next up is something very simple: a can opener. I was so fed up with can openers that didn’t last before I bought this little gem. It was recommended to me by two different friends on opposite sides of the country, who’ve both had theirs for years (one more than ten, the other I believe was five), and it still works perfectly. I haven’t had mine very long, but it already has impressed me. I had bought some higher priced ones that were already wearing out after a few months of use. This simple little gadget has made me very happy.
This is what Teri uses to make her homemade noodles, so I bought one and have used it to make thousands of delicious noodles over the last four years. While affordable, it is good quality, I haven’t had any trouble with it at all. And of course, you can also use it to mince your herbs.
Last but not least is my beloved canning funnel.
I love that it fits most any size jar, and has an outer collar that keeps the funnel lifted off the counter when not in use, preventing contamination and minimizing mess if you need to sit it down while canning for any reason. Also, the handle doesn’t get piping hot as you fill jars – no burnt fingers! It also features headspace measurements for precise filling. I love it so much.
Thanks for TILT’ing it up with me today, folks. You can check out last week’s TILT on USA Pans if you missed it, and if you are thinking about cloth diapering, check back next Thursday for some cloth diaper fun. :)
