Now that you have a better idea of what each material offers, it’s time to select the best bakeware for your creation:
Trays: A flat oven tray is one of the simplest yet most versatile tools you can have in your kitchen. Whip up a batch of cookies, meringues or flapjacks, or get ambitious with tricky treats like macarons. Look for a size to comfortably fit your oven’s dimensions.
Cake tins: Unsurprisingly, a cake tin is a must if you want to bake cakes. Simple round or square tins only need a little parchment paper in the bottom before they’re ready to use. Springform tins make baking a piece of cake (excuse the pun) by letting you loosen the sides after they're finished in the oven for that picture-perfect finish.
Muffin trays: Great for muffins and cupcakes, of course, but with a little inventiveness you can create serving-sized portions of everything from frittatas to pies.
Loaf and pie tins: These do just what they say on the tin. If you want to bake up a banana bread loaf you’ll need a deep tin for the job. Likewise, pies and tarts need shallow, dish-shaped tins to hold their shape.
Baking dishes and bowls: Made of ceramic or glass, these will give puddings a good, even finish without burning them. You can also use a casserole dish in a pinch.
