 Special Baking Tools for Valentine's Day

With a magazine filled with Valentine's Recipes, you might want to consider getting a few things to make your baking, cooking, and serving look "just right" for the special day. Here are a few of our favorite things for the Low Carb Luxury Kitchen!


  KitchenAid Silicone Heart Cake Pan

The red KitchenAid heart-shaped cake pan is for baking festive heart layers for Valentine's Day, anniversaries, or other occasions when a romantic dessert might be appreciated. And even though it's made of floppy silicone rubber, it does as good a job (or better) than any metal or glass pan. For one thing, it's easier to release a cake from a silicone pan once it's done baking; just invert the pan, exert a slight pressure to the bottom, and peel the cake away from the pan. And since it's made of resilient silicone, this pan can handle the use of metal spatulas or utensils without its permanent nonstick quality being affected; don't use anything with a serrated edge, though.

  Nonstick Heart Pancake Molds

A very charming way to greet your Valentine first thing in the morning — breakfast in bed with crisp linens, a bouquet of flowers and low carb hotcakes in the shape of hearts! Creating them is simple, especially with this handy mold.

For using, first spray the ring with cooking oil and place on a seasoned griddle. Carefully pour your batter in and cook. Your heart-shaped hot cakes will pop out nicely, ready to be decorated with fresh fruit, butter and sugarfree syrup.

  Copco Heart Teakettle


With three hearts worked into its design, this teakettle exudes valentine charm like no other. While the body is snowy white porcelain enamel on steel, the heat-resistant handle, lid lift, and spout cover are all bright red and heart-shaped.

Classically shaped, the kettle?s 8-inch-wide bottom places a greater surface area on the burner, which in turn brings water to a boil more quickly. The kettle whistles when the water?s ready, and the spout cover locks open for safe pouring. Just add your favorite tea, cookies, and sweetheart for the perfect cup.
