5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Baking Beans
While not revolutionary (they are just baking beans after all), these ceramic beans work as well as you could want them to. They are reasonably well made, fairly uniform and so far (nine months use) haven't started to chip, break up or create dust, so it seems like they will last a while.

The tin is really the only differentiating factor against most other...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Baking Beans, 20 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tala Retro Ceramic Pie Beads In Tin, 700g (Kitchen & Home)
While not revolutionary (they are just baking beans after all), these ceramic beans work as well as you could want them to. They are reasonably well made, fairly uniform and so far (nine months use) haven't started to chip, break up or create dust, so it seems like they will last a while.

The tin is really the only differentiating factor against most other ceramic baking beans. It looks nice, with the retro look that matches the rest of Tala's products in this range. The tin is again well made and sturdy, so can cope with the beans being poured in an out of it well and provides a neat and convenient storage vessel for them. The tin measures 9cm in diameter and is 9cm tall.

The tin comes pretty much full of beans, so you won't be able to fit any more in (maybe another 20 or so, max). The contents of one tin will completely cover the base of a 9" round cake or pie tin, with a one bean thick layer, with probably 30~ish beans on top in a second layer. Given that each bean is reasonably heavy, this has been fine for blind baking pastry. You could probably cover a slightly larger tin. The packaging states that it should cover up to a 13" tin, which it would, but the beans would be slightly spread apart.

Overall, very happy. Good product, good beans and good storage tin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product, 5 July 2011
This review is from: Tala Retro Ceramic Pie Beads In Tin, 700g (Kitchen & Home)
This was a present for my daughter which she was delighted with, I preferred a tin rather than the plastic tub because they will store better when the product is warm and it looks nicer than the tub.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great gift, 2 Jan 2013

This review is from: Tala Retro Ceramic Pie Beads In Tin, 700g (Kitchen & Home)
Ideal for my son who is a very keen cook. He was delighted to have them in a tin, rather than in a plastic tub as they so often come. Meaning you have to wait ages for them to cool before before you can replace them back in their storage box.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for baking with & cute tin, 17 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tala Retro Ceramic Pie Beads In Tin, 700g (Kitchen & Home)
I purchased these as we were using brown rice as a poor man's substitute, and after several cooks the rice wasn't looking too good. These are really good, all same size, come in a really cute vintage style tin that's easy to store them in after use. Have used a good few times and continue to do well, ideal gift or pressie for someone who cooks pastry based items, maybe if they've been inspired by Great British Bake Off which may I say is a fantastic programme! Enjoy.

These beads were deliverd fast, even though got it delivered to BFPO address. The beads seem to be a very good quality and the tin is much more appealing than the normal plastic tub. I haven't used them as yet but will update as and when.
