WIN a Pyrex bundle giveaway

PYREX COMP

“Wowzers!” I hear you cry! Can I win all of that! Well yes you can.

Pyrex is 100 years old this year so when they asked if I would like to do a giveaway here on CakesBakesAndCookies.com I jumped at the chance. I mean what baker doesn’t love a bit of Pyrex kitchen kit?

So, what’s in the bundle?

The big bowl

I’ve had a 3.0L Pyrex Glass Bowl,small Pyrex bowl and Pyrex jug in my ‘essential’ kit for as long as I can remember. I use the large bowl to mix ALL my cake mixes in as I now use my hand held whisk for practically everything. That big bowl is the perfect size for cakes up to 10″ and you can’t say that about many mixing bowls!

The Small bowl

The small 1 litre Pyrex Bowl,  I have is so old now. It’s got a ton of scratches at the bottom where I mix eggs for omelettes and have done so since Tim and I first moved in together. So, it must be about 18 years old! Boy am I showing my age now! The thing I use it for most of all now is warming up butter. I shared this Mary Berry tip a few years ago where you place cold butter from the fridge in the bowl then add tepid water and leave it for ten minutes so the butter softens up to room temperature. My kitchen is so cold – especially in the winter so I do this for most cakes. The softer the butter the better the cake mix.

The Small Jug

The small 0.5 l Pyrex Jug is what I use to measure (no brainer really!) but I also always break my eggs into this jug when making cakes. It’s become a bit of a ritual habit for me. Do you know that when you break eggs into a glass container any tiny bits of shell that get in the mix sink to the bottom, so you can lift the jug up and look underneath to check that there aren’t any fragments lurking down there.  I used to have the big 1 litre Pyrex jug but I dropped it and was really gutted. It’s another great sized piece that has so many uses. I must replace that some time!Pyrex giveaway jug

Kitchen lab precise measure

This is a really clever device. It was new to me but since I’ve had my hands on it I’ve used it tons. The Pyrex test tube design  has this clever rubber base so it can stand up while you measure really small amounts of liquid into it so, when a cake calls for 4 tea spoons of vanilla essence you can measure them in one go. It can measure up to 50ml, 1 ½ Fl. Oz, 6 tea spoons and 3 tablespoons, handy when you’re baking big cakes. You don’t loose count when you measure in one go!

Pyrex giveaway  measuring small liquidBaking tray

I love baking trays. I don’t know any keen baker who doesn’t. You just can’t have enough of them can you? This Pyrex asimetriA BAKING TRAY  has a raised surface and is designed to give you an even distribution of heat so those cookies will all come out the same. It’s a really good size. I can get 30 cookies on just this one tray.

Loaf tin

This Pyrex asimetriA Loaf tin is the only part of this bundle I haven’t baked with yet. I’m thinking about doing a long thin cheesecake with it next month with a line of cherries down the centre. What do you think? It’s not your traditional size loaf tin. It’s longer (26cm) which I really like. It gives you a point of difference… and more cake. What would you bake with one of these?

Muffin tin

This Pyrex asimetriA MUFFIN TRAY has really tall, straight sides. I’m a bit rubbish when it comes to muffins. They never seem to rise up as much as I’d like, but when I used this tin to make cupcakes a couple of weeks ago they came out really neat and even – just what I wanted. The straighter the sides of the cake wells the more professional the cakes look in my opinion.

 Sandwich tins

These Pyrex asimetriA sandwich tins are probably the most useful size you can get – or at least they’re the size I use the most. So with that in mind I now have four 8″ sandwich tins. Great for layered cakes or rainbow cakes. These sit inside each other for handy storage and bake a chocolate victoria sponge cake perfectly – as I did last month. Great quality and non-stickability.Pyrex sandwich tins

 The GIVEAWAY

So, basically I have these essentials in my baking cupboard and they get a ton of regular use. So do you want some? These are all up for grabs in one lovely big giveaway bundle. You can win……

  1. what a great ofeer it would be a great use to me being disabled and with grandchildren I love to have them with me when I cook the extra bowls and cooking equipment is always useful

  2. I want ALL the pretties 😀 hmm I would have to use the sandwich tins to make a beautiful Victoria sponge (thanks for linking btw, when you posted a picture on the sugar syrup post I was coveting the tins!) and the loaf tin to make a lemon drizzle. I haven’t got on well with pyrex cupcake tins before but they might have changed them!

    Re dropping, I feel your pain. My mum’s pyrex bowls are old, as in, they’re in pints old. The middle size cracked and the new litre one isn’t exactly the same size, so they don’t stack as neatly anymore. Sad times. It also shows up how badly we’ve scratched the bowls over the years with whisks and things!

  3. What a great giveaway! I’m getting together with my Mum soon to bake some old family recipes. I would use the loaf tin to make my dad’s mum’s date loaf, the sandwich tins to make mum’s mum’s spiced apple cake and the jug and the jug and bowls to make my dad’s Scottish tablet.

  4. With 3 children at school now there seems to be a cake stall on almost a weekly basis, sometimes both schools on the same day, so this set and particularly the muffin tin would come in very useful for producing this near endless supply of cakes. There are also my families birthday cakes, this year my youngest son want a Lego Movie Unikitty cake this year (probably when shes angry kitty so it’s red instead of pink) I have until August to figure that one out. I’ve had my pyrex bowls/jug since I got married so they are about 23 years old (married young had kids late.) so could really use replacing the jug levels are so faded they are barley legable now. This set would be well used if I was the lucky one.

  5. I would make some double chocolate chip cookies to turn into ice cream sandwiches that my son’s want to make and a lovely coffee cake in the tins for myself!!

  6. OOOOH!!! you can never have enough bowls and tins when your baking…that’s what I say. I’ve recently started a little cake business from home so this would all come in handy when I’m making my sponge cakes.

  7. My 2 year old is currently addicted to blueberry muffins, blueberry loaf cake and to be honest just anything blueberry! I would use all of these to make him healthy versions of all of his (and mummy’s) favourites!

  8. It very expensive in my country to get items like this.it would mean a lot to me and my family If I am given this beautiful gift thank you.

  9. A Victoria Sandwich with our 11 yr old as it is his favourite and he is just starting cookery lessons in secondary school so he is really excited to start learning bless him, I can see lots of family bake days on the way x

  10. I need all the help in the kitchen i can get so having good quality items to help is a must. i would love to win xx many thanks for the chance.

  11. I would love to win this as I’m only just really getting into baking and still lack some proper equipment. Lovely prize 🙂

  12. I use pyrex nearly every day and have been doing for 45 years of marriage. Time for some new pyrex I think!

  13. I would love to win this Pyrex bundle because there are a few items on the list that I do not own but would love! I am always baking and my children love to help too! Thank you x

  14. I’d love to win this because I’m still learning how to bake, I can almost make perfect handmade bread, etc. My current baking utensils are cheap and need replacing, this bundle would be awesome to win! However, there will be others who’d need it more than me. Have a great day! =)

  15. I use my Pyrex jug so much you can hardly see the numbers so a new one would be great! The bowls are useful for EVERYTHING! I’d make chocolate muffins in the muffin tin, Malteser cake in the sponge tins and a ginger loaf in the loaf tin

  16. I really want to get into cooking food from scratch & with this bundle i would be able to start get creative with food which would be amazing for me & my family to enjoy home cooked food.

  17. I’ve just become a foster mum so this kit would help keep us all busy and entertained, with the added bonus of feeding us too 🙂

  18. Pyrex has been a great part of my kitchen for 40 years so its safe to say I trust this brand over any other!

  19. I love pyrex – my current measuring jug is so well used the markings have almost rubbed off – have to really look closely at it when measuring!

  20. Ive been inspired to start baking, not the most confident person in by abilities when it comes to food, but with so many bake sales at my Sons school, I,’m the only one who brings shop bought cakes! I would love to try a lemon drizzle and some red velvet cup cakes, although I havent got a clue! I love a good carrot cake so will be trying that too. Hopefully they will be ok

  21. My girls loved baking and we’re in desperate need to update our kitchen utensils/items!! It’s a fabulous prize!

  22. This is going to be an amazing piece of kit if I win. M love for baking is growing everyday and I definitely need it. Look forward to this. All excited, fingers crossed..!!

  23. I love Pyrex. I still have my first glass dish that I had to buy for cookery at school (a long time ago). They have been around for 100 years so that says something. I would make a coffee and walnut cake and some muffins. I like the idea of making up my own recipe. Something using lavender possibly.

  24. i still have my cooking gear we got for our wedding 16 years ago and its all breaking and coatings are coming off. Would love some new stuff

  25. Pyrex things are such great quality, and your post has made me realised I’m severely lacking in a good stock! I’d make a great victoria sandwich first up – need an excuse to try out a new gluten free recipe 🙂

  26. I would love to win this Pyrex bundle because I’m trying to cook more things from scratch rather than buying ready meals or jars of sauces. This Pyrex bundle would make life a lot easier because nothing will stick! xxx

  27. I love to bake, and would use these lovely things to help me test out other peoples recipes, and make new ones of my own

  28. If I won this bundle I’d bake a celebratory Victoria Sponge and a lemon drizzle cake. Love my Pyrex, some of it was my nan’s (and still in use) x

  29. I would use this fabulous Pyrex baking set to make Lemon Drizzle Cake- my grandmother’s recipe. An oldie but a goodie!

  30. This is a really lovely giveaway… I like to bake when I get chance, which hasn’t been enough lately! On maternity leave at the moment, and if I won this it would encourage me to get baking again coz I think it’d be lovely to surprise my hard-working fella with something tasty and homemade when he gets in from work.
    Many thanks for the chance! x

  31. As a student, baking is a great way to make cheap desserts, breakfasts and treats, and I love experimenting with healthy, low sugar recipes. I don’t have much kitchen equipment, and often have to make do, but there would be nothing better than pyrex!

  32. All my stuff is so old and tatty so this would be fantastic to replace it all with, would have no excuse then not to get in the kitchen and make some goodies for the family x

  33. Well, I’m a bit of a whisk taker and I’m thinking of starting a small private baking service from home. I know it’s a crumby job but I knead the dough. I consider myself to be a fairly good baker, so I should rise to the occasion – it’s the yeast I can do. It shouldn’t be difficult to manage, especially if I won this quality Pyrex baking bundle – I’m sure it will be a piece of cake.

    (Remember: You can’t be sad when you’re holding a cupcake!)

  34. I bake quite often, in fact I did a lemon drizzle yesterday. I could make that in the loaf tin. And bake my nephews birthday cake in the round ones. Cheese scones on the rectangle tray. Loads of stuff! And I LOVE that they have ‘handles’ on them. My old tins don’t and are hard to grab, esp the fairy cake tin. I have to leave a couple of empty holes along the front so I have a grab place!

  35. I LOVE PYREX – MEASURING JUGS AND BAKING DISHES ARE THE BEST. I WOULD BAKE A BIG BERRY PIE FOR EVERYONE.

  36. As baking is one of my fav hobby and I have my mums wedding anniversary coming up so would love to bake something fab for her and my dad

  37. I love baking but am limited by the few limited tools we have, it would be so much fun to not be held back in that way!

  38. Having just moved back into my parents house (at 28 it is a bit of a nightmare!!) their bakeware needs a serious update! My mum has a habit of using a wire scouring pad on everything, so I would love to win to replace some of their ancient trays and tins.

  46. Id love to win to give to my daughter who has just got her own flat. Living with me has meant she hasnt really had a chance to try out her cooking skills yet so this would give her the tolls she needs to start cooking
