FoldTuk innovative collapsible bakeware

The search for safer, more utilitarian cookware and pots and pans continues.  We’ve seen the rise and fall of brands like GreenPan that create a buzz and then get a bunch of complaints.  I recently came across the FoldTuk line of cookware, which at first blush appears to be pretty cool.  c13.jpgFoldTuk cookware is made of something called Ceramber, which is a proprietary non-stick, silicone material. The cookware can be microwaved, frozen, put in the over and collapsed for stacking and storing.  You can store food or leftovers in the fridge or freezer and then place the container directly into the microwave or oven for cooking or re-heating. You can also use the pieces as serving containers and it’s pretty unbreakable. Not for stove-top use, but good to 500°F in the oven.

Haven’t tried it yet, so if you have let us know.
