Review: Bundt Pan from CSN Stores

So prior to the new year I had an opportunity to review some products from CSN stores.

I was really excited, and if you have never shopped at their online stores, you're truly missing out. There are so many options that it's practically impossible to
not find what you're looking for.

This was the case for me, as well.

I began my *shopping trip* with a focus on kitchen supplies, specifically bakeware. If you follow me on Twitter at all you already know that this holiday season had me in the mood for baked goodies. Or non-baked goodies. Whichever suits your sweet tooth!


Anyway, I have always had a fascination with bundt pans. Seriously. I'm so serious that I posted a thread on my local mommies' group for support and advice prior to choosing the perfect pan. I was pretty sure I was going with Nordicware (which is completely not related to Nordic Trac, in case you were wondering) as they appeared to be the best of the best. I was not sure if I should opt for the 6-cup, the 12-cup, or the anniversary edition pan. As it was, if I'm being 100% honest with you peeps, I totally opened the box when it arrived and was shocked. I knew I got the 12-cup one, but totally thought I ordered the silicon pan. Duh. Guess what? I didn't. No biggie - I am absolutely in love with this pan. I've used it twice already just because.


I made carrot cake (from a box mix) into bread in this thing, and made almond loaf cake from Tastefully Simple taste like it was from scratch. It could be because of the almond slivers I tossed on top, or maybe, just maybe, it was this incredible pan.

With the discount code I received from CSN Stores, I also purchased another product, but that review is on hold for the time being. I bought a single-serve blender type thing, and it worked really well the first time, but not so great the second and third, so I'm reserving complete judgment until I have tried it out a few more times.

In the meantime, check out this pan (image from CSN website) and it's shiny beauty. And get yourself one if you want to feel fancy like me!


** I was not compensated in any way for this review. I was given a coupon code for $ to purchase an item (or two) of my choice to facilitate this review, but the opinions expressed here are entirely my own.**
