Which Brand of Cake Pan?
I am in need of new 9" round cake pans and can't decide if spending the money on the nonstick gold ones at WS is worthwhile. Does anyone have experience with these? Would you recommend them or are there better brands to consider?
I do not like nonstick cake pans under any circumstances because:
1) the black stuff will flake off after a while
2) you cannot stick a paring knife in the edges to loosen the cake
3) the color causes the crust to get tough and brown and overcooked before the innards has a chance to cook properly.
Lincoln/Wearever/Magicline/Ateco/Wilton is the standard, and the only brand I will use, either at home or work. Just make sure that you get one that has straight sides, and is a full 2 inches deep; 1-1/2 inches is not good enough.
Don't know if y'all know it, Chicago Metallic has farmed almost all of their production overseas. Fat Daddio's sold their line to Magic Line but are coming back. Both are excellent lines of bakeware. I am just beginning to explore Fat Daddios for stock. I can report more later. I am getting as lot of customer resistance for products made outside the US. Will report later.
