minimalism and the brownie industry

i never realized brownie baking was such a huge industry.




Baker’s Edge Nonstick Edge Brownie Pan– allows every brownie piece to be an edge piece. price: $34.95 slice-solution-brownie


 Slice Solutions 9 x 9 Inch Brownie Pan Set – allows you to bake 12 perfectly shaped brownies every time. price: $19.95.    brownie-pop-mold


 Wilton Round Brownie Pop Mold – allows you bake brownies, add cookie sticks, and create a brownie pop. price: $10.99



don’t get me wrong.  i enjoy brownies as much as anyone (especially with ice cream and chocolate syrup on top).  but we’re just fine using a regular baking pan.

    Ugh! Why is everyone so obsessed with edge pieces! Now, find a way to give me all gooey no-edge pieces — without any waste — and THEN I’ll be impressed!

    LOL, if only there were a way to compromise and get some edge pieces and some gooey pieces… oh wait! A regular pan!

    Although in fairness you could pay any of those prices for just a regular baking pan, too.

    I love the edge pieces, but would never want one of those things in my kitchen. For me it’s not the price but the idea of having a uni-tasker that only gets used when I make brownies…which is not too often. I absolutely hate any kitchen gadget that is only good for one thing, especially when that one thing is as frivolous as “edge pieces”…this is one of the worst offenders.

    $35 for a brownie pan?!!

    Compare that amount of money, please, with the previous post about how much food a family in a developing country eats for one week; for less $ than that.

    I agree with Meg! I like the middle pieces better, so this would totally be a waste of money (and space) for me.

    Don’t get me wrong – the edge pieces rock out loud. There’s no doubt about it. But a special pan to make *all* edge pieces? That takes the special right away! And of course the extra stuff / expense / clutter… no thanks. I’ll just make sure I get my edge pieces quickly before they’re all gone ;)

      Haha! Reminds me of how my Aunt Clara used to cut a large round cake into quarters and we’d all eat the entire cake at once. They were delicious!

      We always left her house feeling wonderfully high from all the sugar. It’s the one thing I remember the most about going to her house and we all looked forward to it.
