FoldTuk collapsible bakeware perfect for RVers

If you are both an RVer and a boondocker, the new FoldTuk line of cooking products are a good fit into your lifestyle. I liked the FoldTuk baking dish mainly because of the design feature that enables you to collapse the dish to one inch in height, requiring much less space in your cabinets when storing, always a good point in an RV.

But I found out it was a lot more also, each feature being an advantage to RVers and boondockers. For strictly convenience, the FoldTuk can be used in conventional, convection, infrared, and microwave ovens due to its green and petroleum free Ceramber material, which contains no toxic materials.

Ceramber, invented by an Ohio State University alumnus, Duncan Fung, is a ceramic/silicone compound that will not shrink or shatter (100% shattter proof) when moved from hot to cold conditions, allowing FoldTuk bakeware to move directly from freezer to oven. Also, because of the characteristics of its silicone base, food does not stick to the bakeware, meaning less effort and water needed for cleanup. It is also dishwasher safe.

What an advantage it is to be able to prepare a dish at home, snap on the air-tight lid and freeze it in the container you prepared it. When it comes time to cook, it goes directly from freezer to oven (remove the lid first), bake, and serve--in the same dish. If there are leftovers, simply snap the cover on and place back in the reefer or freezer.

For clean-up, most food will simple wipe out of the baking dish with a paper towel, making hand washing easy, or put in the dishwasher. For storing, collapse by pushing down on the top and snap the lid on and store. You can stack five FoldTuk baking dishes in less space than two similar capacity ceramic baking dishes.

You can find out more about FoldTuk on their Web site, where you can also locate a dealer.
