Giveaway: Rachael Ray Bubble and Brown Set
It’s not a secret that I love to cook, but I’m not sure I’ve shared with you my cookware obsession. I suppose most who love to cook have collected a few more pieces than most, but I love cookware like I love shoes.
But, obsession aside, I’ve noticed something about myself over the last few years. Like most people, I suppose, the older I’ve gotten the more I’ve become focused on longevity and functionality over style and decor. Don’t get me wrong, I’d like them to look nice, as well, but that’s no longer the main reason I purchase cookware.
I’ve found, in the past, that while I could get great designer colors and cool designs, I didn’t always get quality with celebrity brand cookware. And because of that, I’ve found myself shying away from them.
But, while I was on online shopping for a couple new pieces of stoneware, I noticed the incredible reviews Rachael Ray’s Stoneware was receiving and had to go to the Rachael Ray Store to see what she had to offer.
What I found was everything I wanted in stoneware; quality, functionality, affordability, and style!
Casseroval and Bubble and Brown Stoneware by Rachael Ray
When I pulled them out of their boxes, I was instantly impressed with the quality of the stoneware. They were heavy pieces that looked and felt well made.
But the real test come when I used them for a party I was hosting.
Bubble and Brown 2pc Stoneware Set
I used the larger of the two Bubble and Brown bakers to make Spinach and Artichoke Dip, and it came out perfectly. And, as someone who has burned herself a time or two pulling hot dishes out of the oven, I absolutely appreciate the handles on these bakers. In my opinion, they’re a stroke of genius. They make removing hot foods so much easier and safer, but they’re just one of the many features I love about this set.
- Dishwasher, microwave, freezer safe and oven safe to 500°F.
- The glazed interior for easy clean-up.
- The shallow sides result in crunchy tops for each serving.
- Easy Storage – pieces conveniently nest together to save space in your cabinet.
- Wide handles allow you to easily and safely remove the stoneware from the oven.
- Small Baker with 1.25-qt. capacity, measures 11.5 x 7 x 4.5-in.
- Medium Baker with 2.25-qt. capacity, measures 14 x 9.75 x 4.5-in.
Even after baking spinach dip, the Bubble and Brown Baker cleaned easily with no soaking or scrubbing required. I simly use a soapy dish rag and wiped them clean.
I couldn’t wait to use this Casseroval to make my Cheesy Smoked Sausage and Potato Casserole. The 4.25 quart size was perfect for this recipe. Because of it’s large size, I was able to make enough for dinner that night and leftovers to freeze for dinner another night.
And, like the Bubble and Brown set, the Casseroval has those great handles making it easy and safe to remove from your oven, even using big, bulky oven mitts.
This oval casserole is generously sized making it great for baking just about everything. I know I’ll use it for serving soups, stews, and salads, as well.
And, although I like the classic white cookware because it goes with my ever-changing decor, the Rachael Ray line of Stoneware offers several current designer colors to match any decor. Like my Apple Green Round & Square 14-in. Serving Platter and 10-in Serving Bowl.
Grown-up doesn’t have to be boring
I absolutely love the modern and funky design of Rachael’s Round & Square serving stoneware. I mean, seriously, how cute are they?! And, again, they meet all of my grown-up requirements, in that they are well-made and functional. With Rachael’s Round & Square line, she proves grown-up doesn’t have to be boring.
- The top of each piece is round while the bottoms are square, and every piece is two-toned.
- This stoneware holds heat, so hot foods and beverages stay warmer for longer.
- Every piece is safe for the microwave and the dishwasher.
I used my serving platter for a pretty fruit tray, and the serving bowl was perfect to hold baked crusty bread for my Spinach and Artichoke Dip.
