Eazistore Bakeware and Perfect Roast Potatoes!

Thursday, 22 March 2012
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 non stick one is vital.

The Stellar Eazistore nesting bakeware set is not only non stick but you get five essential baking products all fitting nicely into one. I am most definitely in need 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.

 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 non stick coating resulting in longer lasting non stick.

The Perfect Roast Potato

Preheat the oven to 220C or 425F/Gas7

Get yourself a 200g jar of either goose or duck fat.

You'll need to use a floury variety of potato such as Maris Piper.

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.

Put them in a saucepan of cold salted water, (the amount of salt is your preference- I use about a tablespoon).  

Now partly cover with a lid and bring to the boil, cook for five minutes or so, and drain.  Be careful not too cook too long or you'll just end up with mush.  

With a lid on the pan, take the pan of potatoes in both hands and give it a couple of good shakes. 
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....... 

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

  1. What a good idea that is. I am always trying to make some room for things in my kitchen, which is also small :)


Thanks for taking the time to comment - much appreciated.
