The Nova brand embodies an extensive collection of homewares to suit your everyday needs.
Ceramic bakeware is non-reactive, heats up gradually and stays warm even after cooking – making it perfect for cooking dishes such as casseroles and pies. This type of bakeware is made out of clay that has been shaped and fired at a high temperature and finished with an enamel glaze to resist sticking, chips, scratches and stains. Ceramic dishes can come in a number of colours and can feature hand or machine printed patterns, making them attractive pieces to transfer from the oven to the table.
Most ceramic bakeware is safe for use in the dishwasher, however hand washing is recommended to prolong the life if your bakeware.
Silicone bakeware comes in many shapes and sizes. The main reason to choose silicone over traditional metal bakeware is its ability to bend and fold into shape. Its flexibility allows baked goods to be easily removed and the mould to be easily folded and stored into small spaces – perfect for homes with limited storage.
Most silicone bakeware is safe for use in the dishwasher, however handwashing with soap, water and a soft sponge might be necessary to remove any food that may be stuck in the moulds.
