Life Happens in the Kitchen: USA Pans

By John Reardon | Home & Garden

Hello my Foodie Friends! 

We have a great American baking and cookware line at Compliments to the Chef and we are proud to present it to you.  We are always looking for quality products that make cooking and baking easy and fun.  

USA Pan was developed by the world’s largest manufacturer of industrial bake ware and has been providing the leading commercial bakeries with the highest quality baking pans for over 50 years. Whether it is superior pan materials, methods of manufacturing or overall design features, when you purchase from USA Pan you are buying products that meet industrial standards for innovation, quality and durability.  Put simply, their pans are the best available and are proudly produced in the USA. 

Their bake ware has been designed with many of the same standard features of industrial baking pans. Each pan is constructed of aluminized steel, the material of choice for commercial bakeries. Metal thicknesses have been selected that allow even heat distribution and maximum service life. Their pans also use steel wires in the rim construction of most pans to provide additional strength and resist warping. 

Each pan is coated with AMERICOAT Plus, a proprietary silicone coating that nearly all North American bakers prefer over dark non-stick coatings. It is a clear non-stick, environmentally friendly coating that is specifically formulated for superior baking and does not contain any PTFE’s or PFOA’s.

Another unique feature of USA Pan bake ware is corrugated, or fluted, design. The corrugation maximizes pan strength and prevents warping, denting and other effects of everyday use. Corrugation also minimizes surface contact with baked goods which translates into an evenly baked product that is easily released. 

Another fact that we love about this company is that they are family owned. 

We enjoy the Brownie Bite Panel Pan since we are always fighting for the corners of the brownies in the Reardon household. The bite sizes are a perfect size.  

Enjoy creating your favorite baked goods and making them with your family and friends.  

Remember, “Life Happens in the Kitchen!”  

Take care, John and Paula 


Thick and Chewy Brownies

Use a Brownie Bite Panel Pan


3/4 cup butter, melted

1 1/2 cups white sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

3 eggs

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa            powder

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a USA Pan Brownie Bite Panel Pan with a non-stick spray.

In a large bowl, blend melted butter, sugar and vanilla. Beat in eggs one at a time. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Gradually blend into the egg mixture. Fill each prepared brownie well 

two-thirds full with the batter.

•Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean. 

•Do not over bake. Let brownies cool completely and then run a plastic knife around the edges of the

 brownies to loosen.
