I am always looking for ways that I can reduce the amount of fat when cooking. I love products that help with that which was why I was really excited when I was contacted and asked if I would like to review the Pyramid Pan. I was sent a free product for my use and review.
If you have never heard of the Pyramid Pan before, it is a silicone mat that fits on your baking sheet. The whole top of it is molded with little pyramids. The points of the pyramids is that so your food sits on top of the pyramids while fat is kept away from food and settles in the grooves of the mat so that your food isn’t sitting in it and continues to cook while sitting in that excess fat.
The Pyramid Pan is one of those “As Seen on TV” products and I was very pleased with it. Before I get too far ahead of myself, let me tell you more about it. First of all, it is really flexible. It comes rolled up and not only does the design help with fat reducing cooking, the design also makes it easy to store. You can store it rolled up and it actually sticks to itself because the pyramid shapes fit inside the molding underneath to keep it from unrolling. The one that I received was a large which is 16.26 x 11.5 inches. Which is really awesome because I have a baking sheet close enough to that size. If you don’t, the silicone mat can be cut so it can be used in a smaller baking pan/sheet. Which is also nice because if you have more than one smaller ones, you may only need one large one to use on two different baking sheets.
You can use the Pyramid Pan in the oven and in the microwave. I didn’t try microwave cooking with it though but my chicken in the oven came out really, really good! It is also non-stick and I can say that the claim is true. It is very non-stick. After dinner when I was cleaning up the dishes, I ran my Pyramid Pan under hot water. I didn’t use soap or anything, just hot water and everything rinsed off really well. It is dish washer safe and I wanted to rinse it before I put it in the washer. Cleaned up really well! The silicone mat can heat up to 428 degrees.
Using the Pyramid Pan is easy. Just place it inside or on your baking pan/sheet and place your food on top. The first thing that I baked using it was chicken. I use a breading on my chicken before I placed all the pieces on my pan. The chicken sat on top of all the pyramids without any issues. Because the chicken sits on top of the pyramids, air was able to go underneath cooking it more evenly. It did come out a bit more crispy when it was done and of course it helped that it wasn’t sitting in fat getting soggy. I did flip it halfway through. When I took it off the pan when it was finished, there wasn’t any spots on it that had soggy spots.
My chicken was so juicy too! Because of how well it cooked and how evenly it cooked, the chicken remained juicy. It was seriously the best chicken I have baked in a long time. The breading and skin the perfect amount of crispiness was fabulous! You can bake just about anything on it. We cooked bacon in the oven this way too. Onion rings, french fries, sausage, fish – anything fatty you bake! You can also use it to sit a hot pan on instead of your counter and other uses as well. It came in handy as a gripper when I couldn’t open a jar of pickles and hubby wasn’t around to rescue me from the fight. I love the Pyramid Pan and I intend on using it every chance I get!
