For the baker:
Swedish dishcloths do the jobs you typically use paper towels for, but they do it way, way better and using a cloth is better for the environment too. The cloths are made from a combination of cotton and cellulose that is so absorbent, it makes paper towels green with envy. Pop a cloth in the dishwasher, microwave or washing machine to sanitize it. And when it’s time to finally toss it out, the biodegradable cloths can go into the compost bin, not the trash can.
The reinforced non-stick coating provides quick release and easy clean-up. Convenient handles are designed for easy handling in and out of the oven, even while wearing oven mitts. Durable material spreads heat evenly and prevents warping. Embossed pan dimensions offer precise pan measurements permanently stamped on handles for quick, easy reference when following your recipes.
