Bellemain 12-Cup Nonstick #MadeleinePan - Review

Do you know what a Madeleine is?  It could be a name for a sweet lady, but when baked, they are delicate little French butter cakes.  I have always wanted to bake them myself, but never had an opportunity to get the right pan.

Now I do have the opportunity!  I was so fortunate to review the Bellemain 12-cup nonstick Madeleine pan.  This is really a wonderful pan to bake Madeleines in, and also other soft cookies and treats, too!  This pan has a combination of old-time durability combined with modern convenience.  It is simply irresistible ... and so are the sweet treats it creates!

Solid Cast of Strong, Durable Carbon Steel
Commonly seen in extreme-use cookware such as woks, carbon steel is second only to aluminum in heat conductivity, and it's much more resistant to denting and bending than aluminum. So you can expect many years of turning out delicious, evenly baked little cakes for every occasion, from elegant tea parties to after-school snacks.

Nonstick Coating for Better Results
It's the delicate shell-like fluting that makes madeleines so pretty ... and so difficult to get perfect. Traditional madeleine molds required heavy pre-greasing, and still caused quite a few damages when the baker tried to dig the madeleines out of them. But thanks to modern nonstick technology, your madeleines will slide right out of the Bellemain pan.

Easy Clean-Up
The nonstick coating also makes cleaning the Bellemain Nonstick Madeleine Pan practically effortless. No scraping or scouring necessary; it can even go right in the dishwasher.

My kids wanted to be creative with our new Madeleine pan.  So instead of baking some soft cookies, they decided to make chocolates!  All they did was melt some milk and white chocolate, and pour it into the pans.

When they were finished, the little shell-shaped chocolates just slid right out of the pan.  They had some sweet treats for when our family came visiting.  My mother and grandmother just adored them.  The clean up of the pan was super easy, too!

The Bellemain 12-Cup Nonstick Madeleine Pan is available at  BUY IT TODAY for only $19.95 and discover this wonderfully creative little pan for yourself.
