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.
