I have been playing around with the new Delicake Rectangle Master for a couple weeks and after making a few things, thought it was time to share my thoughts. I’ve also got a special surprise, so keep reading if you like the look of this non-baking kitchen accessory.
What is the Delicake Versatile Rectangle Master?
Basically, it’s a cake pan, but that doesn’t explain it very well.
It’s a no-bake cake pan, that’s designed so you can make, transport, serve and store any no-bake recipes in the one thing.
So for example, in the cheesecake shots you can see below.
- I made the base and set it in the fridge
- Added the topping and set it in the fridge
- Drove it around to my parents in law’s house for dinner
- Added the strawberries
- Served from the base.
- Left some extras for them and then put the sides and top back on and drove it back home to go in our fridge.
It’s designed to replace using springform pans, plus cling wrap and the associated issues that you face with those.
What types of recipes can you make in the Delicake Masters?
Really anything that is no bake – and doesn’t start as liquid.
- Lemon slice
All of these went really well, especially once I worked out that I was using it upside down for the first two recipes (doh!)
Where is it made?
That’s the great thing. The Delicake products are the brainchild of a Sydney mum, Julie Atoui and so they are made right here in Australia.
You can read more about why and how she came up with the idea on the Delicake website.
What are the features of the Delicake Versatile Rectangle Master?
- Made of high impact polished food grade acrylic.
- Approved Plastic Materials.
- BPA FREE.
- For preparing, setting & serving no bake recipes.
- Size: 200mm x 300mm.
This product is really easy to use. It comes with really simple instructions, although I have to admit I accidentally used it upside down to make the fudge in the pic below – doh!
The clear walls, bottom and top make it so easy to see what you are doing and fix any mistakes on the go.
The three pieces fit together snugly and well, giving you confidence in the sealing abilities. If you try and put them on the wrong way, they just won’t fit, so you always know you’ve got it right (unless you have the whole thing upside down like me).
It actually does serve as easily as it says it does. I had my doubts and so tested it out with both sticky fudge and cheesecake and both times the sides lifted away and left the inside looking perfect.
Transporting and storing suddenly becomes so straightforward, almost unbelievably so.
Because the product is so snazzy, your creations suddenly jump from ‘oh that’s nice’ to ‘Masterchef’ status – plus they are going to look amazing on your Instagram shots 😉
The most obvious is of course the no bake aspect which rules out using it for baked cheesecakes or desserts that have a combination of bake and chill components. I was worried this would make it hard to find things to make, but there are just so many fantastic no bake recipes out there I certainly haven’t been short of ideas to use it.
The Rectangle Master is big. This makes it perfect for entertaining, when you need to bring something to a party or group family gathering, but it does mean you need to consider the size and potentially adjust the recipe accordingly (see below image of Lemon Slice where I vastly underestimated how much I should make).
The Rectangle Master sells for $59.95 AUS plus shipping from www.delicake.com.au
This is one of those lovely kitchen gadgets that is not a necessity, but once you’ve used it, you’ll wonder how you got by before you had it.
I really enjoyed testing it out with different recipes and I’m looking forward to making a lot more in it. This one, like the TmixPlus magazines is something that a keen home chef would buy for themselves or would be very happy to receive as a gift.
Perfect for those who love to impress with their desserts at gatherings for families and friends.
If you’d love one of these for your kitchen, keep an eye out later in the week as I am super excited to announce that we’ll be giving one of these away via Instagram – so it can be yours!
