Tefal Airbake Review

I am very impressed with the Tefal AirBake tins I was sent the square 23cm cake tin to try and set about doing some baking.
I like that its a light tin, you may be mistaken into thinking it may not be up to much but its very strong.

First I cooked a fruit cake just to see what it did do to the texture as its an old family recipe and always moist and I make it a lot I felt I could judge the performance of the tin more thoroughly.


The cake I make is usually in a loaf tin so came out flatter than normal but I felt that would challenge the moistness claims as the mix being spread out thinner would tend to be drier.

It is as moist as ever but seems lighter the top is definitely crisper, I think the Tefal AirBake actually will make your tried and true cake recipes as good, possibly better than before.

The joy of this tin is it can go in the dishwasher do you know how nice that feel after a day's baking, so cool.
However the cake came clean out of the tin so not much for the dishwasher to do.  


Next I tried the recipe that came on the back of the Tefal packaging, Chewy Brownies.
A lovely easy recipe and a great chance to try out my next lot of Trish Deseine chocolate and to get that tin a little dirtier.


Chewy Brownies

Ingredients
160g unsalted butter
125g unsweetened chocolate
200g granulated sugar
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons of vanilla extract
2 eggs
125g flour (It did not state but I used plain)
2 tablespoons of cocoa powder.
Gas Mark 4 180c

Method

Melt chocolate and butter in a container over a pan of boiling water. Remove and cool slightly,
Stir in salt, sugar and vanilla.
Mix in eggs one at a time, then add the flour and cocoa and beat until smooth.
Add to the tin and bake for 30 minutes test with knife to see no mixture is on the knife.

They were lovely and again came out of the tin and left hardly any mess to wash up.



 

The clever scientists at Tefal have done it again, developing AirBake, the innovative new bakeware range that will spell the end of our kitchen nightmares. Using ground-breaking technology AirBake guarantees even baking and no burning.

Each product in the range consists of two aluminium layers separated by an insulated layer of air that prevents the baking surface from overheating.





No overheating – No more burning AirBake protects the bottom of your cakes from burning



Long lasting non-stick coating with reinforced top coat for easy removal & cleaning





100% aluminium: excellent heat diffusion for even baking


This new generation of bakeware ensures moister baked cakes with a perfect crust. The 100% aluminium construction provides excellent heat distribution for even baking, and it won’t rust! No more sticking, you really can have your perfectly cooked cakes and cookies and eat them.

Tefal understands how precious time is and AirBake bakes 15% faster than regular insulated bakeware thanks to a Micro-Dome technology on the base of each product.

This innovation makes baking a breeze and the Tefal non-stick coating means it is easy to unmould your freshly baked treats, allowing for the perfect presentation. The long-lasting and reinforced Tefal non-stick coating is easy to clean and dishwasher safe, saving you time slaving at the sink.

The AirBake range is available from http://www.homeandcook.co.uk/ and retails between £16 and £22.

The range includes a large and medium cookie sheet, tart tin, round cake, square cake and loaf tin.
