The “But What Can I Do With It” Series ~ #2. Baking Apple

Originally published on August 12, 2011.

If you read the first post in this series (about the hexabox), then you may recall that one of the really fun things about polish pottery is its ability to be multipurpose.  Our latest shipment of pottery has arrived, and one of our newly available pieces is the Baking Apple.

These cute polish pottery pieces are traditionally used for baking apples.  Add some apples, cinnamon, and butter into this apple, bake it in the oven, and Voila!  Yummy baked apples.  But what if you don’t like baked apples?  What if you don’t bake anything at all, and instead only use your oven as storage for your sweater collection?  You might be asking yourself, “But what can I do with it?”  Well, I’m glad you asked…

Ten uses for a Polish Pottery Apple Baker

1.  Put your SOS pad in it and set it next to the sink.  Keeps the SOS pad in arm’s reach but out of sight!

2.  Great place to store Splenda packets.

3.  Cute storage for your tea bags.

4.  Candy dish (especially fall candy, like candy corns or those fall M&Ms).

5.  Put it on your desk to hold paper clips, push pins, etc..

6.  Set it on your dresser and store hair clips, ponytail holders, etc… in it.

7.  Put cotton balls in it.

8.  Put Potpourri in it.

9.  Store your spare change in it.

10.  Don’t put anything in it, and just set it on your shelf for decoration.

    I love all your ideas, but the one I love most is storing sweaters in the oven! Now I finally have a use for that thing, except in mine I’m going to store purses!

  2. I have one of these! It’s in a different pattern, but guess what?? I NEVER thought of baking an apple in it!! I keep raw almonds in mine. 🙂

    • How funny!! 🙂 That’s the great thing about these baking apple…you can do so much with them!
