Eazistore Bakeware and Perfect Roast Potatoes

The secret to perfectly crispy roast potatoes. There's nothing quite like a good and proper roast potato with your Sunday dinner. However, in order to perfect them, you really do need a good roasting tin and a nonstick one is vital.

Crispy Roast Potatoes
The Stellar Eazistore nesting bakeware set is not only nonstick but you get five essential baking products all fitting nicely into one. I am most definitely in need of anything that saves space as my kitchen is silly small.

Set of 5 Essential Baking Items Taking Up Just One Space. A Roaster, 12 Cup Muffin Pan, Baking Sheet, Baking Tray, and Cooling Tray.

Eazistore Bakeware
Each tray is cleverly stored inside the other and is made in such a way that the underside of each doesn't come into contact with the nonstick coating resulting in longer-lasting nonstick.

Crispy Roast Potatoes

Perfectly crispy fluffy on the inside roast potatoes are easy to make; follow my instructions and you can't go wrong.

You don't have to use duck of goose fat as Cookeen works a treat and I actually use it most times. Just use around a 5 cm slice from a block.


  • Maris Piper (floury) potatoes - as many as you fancy.


  1. You'll need to use a floury variety of potato such as Maris Piper or King Edward.
  2. Preheat the oven to 220C or 425F/Gas7
  3. Get yourself a 200g jar of either goose or duck fat although 'Cookeen' works a treat.
  4. Peel the potatoes and cut them into pieces large enough for two or three bites; any less and they will be all crust and no spud.
  5. Put them in a saucepan of cold salted water, (the amount of salt is your preference- I use about a tablespoon).
  6. Now partly cover with a lid and bring to the boil, cook for five minutes or so, and drain. Be careful not to cook too long or you'll just end up with mush.
  7. Drain well and with a lid on the pan, take the pan of potatoes in both hands and give it a couple of good but gentle shakes.
  8. The idea is to fluff the edges of the spuds up so that they become crisp and frilly as they roast. This is the key to success. Now, leave the lid off and pop back on an unheated part of the stove top to dry out a bit. 
  9. Pour a third to half of the jar of goose or duck fat into your roasting pan to form a thinnish layer and heat it briefly in the oven. If you're using Cookeen put a big slice say 4 or 5 centimeters into the hot baking dish and into the oven for a couple of minutes to melt.
  10. Now carefully put the potatoes into the hot fat and turn them until they're well covered, spooning over the hot fat as you turn them.
  11. Baste them again with the hot fat after about 30 minutes, turn them over and baste again. Continue to bake them until they're gold and crispy.
  12. They will take about 50 minutes to an hour. If it they take longer, then so they do; you can't rush a good food!
  13. Try to move them only once or twice during cooking, otherwise the edges won't go crisp and brown. Serve immediately.

My Lopsided Yorkshire Puddings!
I must point out they are lopsided purely as a result of me not being able to cook them any other way.  Mine never look normal but they taste good and that's all that matters!

Once again the Eazistore muffin tray made them a doddle to remove from the pan once cooked and the tray was really easy to wash up too.

Yorkshire Puddings

The Eazistore bakeware set comes with the Stellar Lifetime Guarantee and 5 year non stick Guarantee. I have to say I'm totally impressed with this Stellar bakeware. The price tag of just under £50 isn't at all bad considering all the trays you get in the set. Available from Amazon and good cook shops. 

A big thank you to Stellar and Pam for sending me this to review.
