CSN Review

Do you remember this post?

If not, let me catch you up.  I was contacted by CSN stores, an e-commerce company based out of Boston, about doing a review of one of their products.  I decided to review the Reston Lloyd PrepCo Bake Porter Loaf Pan with Serving Cover.

Let me start of by saying that I was extremely impressed with the staff over at CSN.  Not only did they give me (and other bloggers) the opportunity to review and giveaway their products, but they were also incredibly accommodating and prompt with everything from helping me find something to review to getting it shipped as quickly as possible.  Ever since I received the loaf pan, I have gotten some great coupons by e-mail ($10-$15 off, 20% off, etc.) so I look forward to ordering form them in the future.

Okay - now onto the fun stuff!!

So how do I like my loaf pan?  I LOVE it!!

Here I am getting it ready to be used.  There are several basic reasons why I think this is a phenomenal product:
1. It has a cover (perfect for storage and traveling for potlucks and coffee hours)
2. The cover has silicone edges, which makes it really easy to get it off and on
3. It is nonstick
4. The cover can be used as a serving dish (and it comes with instructions on how to create both a hot and cold serving dish)
5. It comes with recipes!!

Bruce and I made Spiced Applesauce Bread, which was definitely going to put this loaf pan to the test in the oven.  The bread needs to stay moist, but also needs to be cooked through without burning or drying out.

It was phenomenal.  I took the bread out a few minutes earlier than the recipe called for, but that had more to do with my oven than the pan.

After I cut into it - the inside stayed so moist, I was amazed.

And the best part?

Easy storage!!  No messing with tinfoil or trying to find a container to store it in.  I love the top.

If you are interested in the product, check it out here.  And I would definitely recommend checking out CSN stores for all of their products.  The price is right and the selection is incredible!!

Want the recipe?  I will post it later in the week (trust me, you're going to want to stick around for it).

Have a great Monday!!

Now for some legal chatter:  I was contacted by CSN to do a review of one of their products and was given this product free of charge.  However - the opinions I expressed in this post were completely my own and not prodded by anyone over at CSN.


  1. I tried getting to this from twitter and it didn't work, so hopped on through blogger.

    COOL! baking dish. Love the lid is also a serving dish. I make banana bread weekly - this would be perfect for me!

    Can't wait for the recipe! How'd you like your first review for CSN???

  2. Love your review and the picture with you holding the pan had me cracking up! I think you did an amazing job with your review! The pan seems great and I can't wait to check out the recipe for the bread! It looked delish!
