Nonstick Miracle Meatloaf Pan by Chef Tony
not a favorite
Good concept but doesn't work as good at home as seen by chief Toni. Need more practice on my end. Have tried at least 3 recipes and seems like I have to much meat mixture. Not enough space after pressing for stuffing ingredients. I think a deeper pan would work much better. Oh, and the plastic press holds in water when I take it out of the dishwasher. And it needs to be washed in dishwasher to sterlize after using on meat. I have to let it air dry on counter before storing. Maybe doing something wrong on my part but I don't think so. It doesn't look like I can take the press apart to wash.
Disappointed-Vegs Don't Cook, Meat Tough
The only thing that worked well is the liquid fat flows to the bottom and the loaf lifts easily out of the pan. Stuffing the loaf was easy, but precook vegs if you want them done in the loaf pan after cooking the meatloaf. This pan ruined my mother's meat loaf receipe and that I must say is very hard to do. I will go back to cooking the meatloaf in the pans I always use. Perhaps these pans can be used uncovered to bake banana bread etc.
veggies did not cook
Meatloaf is my Kansas husband's favorite dinner so I really could not wait to stuff ours with carrots and serve it up. BUZZKILL the carrots were hard as rocks even after 90 minutes of cooking.
Hubby Loves it
I got this for my husband. He is the cook at our house.
He loves it. He made a stuffed meatloaf with cheese and
mashed potatoes . It was so yummy!
I was excited when the item arrived and sad when I used it --- it is a mere loaf pan. Not worth QVC's reputation.
Not so great
I would give it zero stars if I could.
I was excited when I saw the demo on In the Kitchen with David.
Easy way to stuff a meatloaf, something that has never worked for me before...everything always leaked out.
I already had a loaf pan like this, with the lift out tray I also got from QVC. It worked just fine/ But I wanted to try out that lid.
First of all the clear film covering the lid was nearly impossible to remove.
Second, I still had to use my hands to make the well deeper by pressing down & then I had to press the meat up the sides as well. Who needs a special lid to do this if you have to use your hands... the idea was not to have to do this.
Third. Although I used the exact measurements, followed the instructions exactly, the thing fell apart as I 'gently slid it from the tray' onto the serving platter. It was totally exploded. This is what happens when I have made them in the past. Why do I need a lid for that???
It did not look at all like the nice neat little stuffing that was shown on the show. There was way too much stuffing to make it like that.
I am sadly disappointed with this product, but the loaf pan itself is fine and I will just toss the lid
Not The Best Purchase
Light weight in my opinion Chef Ramsey meatloaf pan is a much better pan.
Not As Shown on TV
Doesn't work as demonstrated. Need to work out the bugs. The pan itself is good with the drip tray, but I didn't need another loaf pan. I bought it specifically to make stuffed meatloaf, and for this it does a poor job. First, I have to use way more meat then I would normally use. It would be nice if it could be adapted to work well with less than 3 lbs of chopped meat. Second, the "well" has to be adjusted by hand, so what's the point? I can just do it on my own without the lid, The lid isn't deep enough. Third is the poor design of the lid. It's sealed, but with a seam so water gets in the middle when washing, but you can't get it out. Overall a shoddy design that needs to be fixed. I would not be proud to put my name on this product!
Try it ..... You'll be happy you did!
Wished I would have had this pan years ago...... I do not use the press as I like to put more in the meat loaf and roll like a jelly roll......
So easy to lift out and slice............
I like it but it could be better
I like this product. It makes it easy to stuff a meatloaf, it's easy to get out of the pan, and the meatloaf stays separate from the drippings. The only problem is, when you wash the presser it gets full of water. Because I can't take it apart, I worry about it not staying sanitary. In order to get the water out you have to find which corner the water will drip out of and hold it until everything has drained. I hope this is a flaw the company can fix because I think it's a good product.
I'm also hoping they can make this in a smaller version. This one takes 2 lbs of meat plus whatever you are stuffing it with. That's quite a lot of meat if you are only needing a small meal.
This is such a time saver! I make fried potatoes and talk about easy and fast!! As well as my cucumber crunch salad during the summer!! LOVE this and the time it has saved me!!

While the pan is unusual, getting the blue plastic film off the lid is almost not worth it. I tried for quite awhile and finally succeeded. The film got down into the holes where the handle moves up and down. Got most of it out but took a long time. Still has a tiny bit the size of pin head. Gave only 3 stars because of the blue film. But, I do like the pan.
