The History of Christmas Bakeware

As time has progressed so has the size, importance and decadence of the Christmas day meal. Christmas is well known as a day in which a vast amount of luxurious and rich food will be consumed. It makes sense that with an increase in the amount of food made will come an increase in the number of different bakeware products you will require. Years ago the main Christmas day meal consisted of purely the main course; meat, vegetables and potatoes. However, nowadays it is more common to see families sitting down to enjoy a hearty 3 course meal. The number of dishes required for such a large meal to be ready all at the same time, for what could potentially be a substantial amount of people, really ups the pressure on the chef and their tools. That is why it seems vital to ensure that all of the correct Christmas bakeware products have been purchased prior to the big day.

Types of Christmas Bakeware

There is a wide variety of Christmas bakeware products available on the market today. Below is a list of some of the more popular items.

Roasting Tin
This is perhaps the most important bakeware item to purchase for your Christmas feast. The meat; whether that’s a traditional turkey, or unusual pheasant, you’re sure to need a roasting tin to prepare your meaty delight. The type of roasting tin you choose is a very important consideration as it must be substantial enough in both size and strength to hold your meat; turkeys can be surprisingly heavy when placing in the oven.

Mince Pie Trays
Christmas is a time for families, spending quality time with your nearest and dearest and enjoying some good food together. No Christmas would be complete without a few mince pies floating around the kitchen. Making your own mince pies is simple and easy and a great way to keep the kids entertained on the run up to Christmas. Eat these delights hot out of the oven with a dash of cream, you’ll have the whole street queuing up to sample your festive pies!
