Top critical review
on July 10, 2014
I had high hopes for these things, and hope is a good thing, maybe the best thing.
The spatula's work well and I believe they will hold up for a long time.
I throw them in the dishwasher with everything else and they still look new.
The loaf pan works well in the larder for holding those taco/chili/gravy packets.
These pans have no back bone, at all.
I had to put them on a cookie sheet in order to get them from the counter to the inside of the screaming hot oven.
If you load these pans up properly you'll find them difficult to pick up and carry.
They have the fortitude of an old sock.
I made a *from scratch* chocolate layer cake in the round cake pans.
After they were removed from the oven they were set on a wire rack for over an hour before I attempted to remove the cake from them.
What an irritation.
It takes close to an hour to prepare the *from scratch* cake recipe and then to find out it is impossible to remove them in one piece from the pans almost pushed me over the top.
I did get the cakes out of the pans but large chunks were ripped away from the bottom of them and considerable *patching* was required, and the aggravation persists to this day.
These pans are now in the cabinets in the laundry room waiting for a time that I might find an alternative use for them.
I imagine, eventually, they will be thrown away.
I really don't see a cooking purpose in them, and question the validity of any positive reviews they may receive.
