Used two Duncan Hines cake mixes instead of recipe on box - packaging says you don't have to use their recipe so that seemed safe enough. Reading other reviews, it appears that may have been a bad idea, as the Wilton recipe is a stiffer batter. Box should have included notes to that effect.
As mentioned by another reviewer, the divider insert does not fit firmly at all - it should hook over the edges of the pan for better stability or something - even when I weighted the insert down with a soup can, pouring the batter in made it slide around and leak into other layers.
Lifting the insert out using the tabs per instructions was a mess. On the 2nd pan, I tried coating the insert with Pam spray first which helped a bit.
The tip about pouring your batter into pastry bag or ziploc bag to pipe into pans helped quite a bit and was a good tip.
The pans themselves seemed fine, decent non-stick coating and handles make them easier to move in/out of oven. The insert fits loosely at best and is flimsy. I had to throw out the cake and make a standard layer cake instead because the batter did not in any way stay in the intended circles. Was a waste of $$ and will be donating to Goodwill, maybe someone else will have better luck.
Forewarned about the issues with the lightweight plastic center, I used 1" pieces of clear plastic packing tape to tape the center firmly down so that it couldn't rise up when the batter was added. I taped over about a half-inch of the outside edge of each "spoke" and lightly affixed the tape over the side of the pan. Once the batter was poured, I loosened the tape from the pan only, leaving it attached to the center insert so that I wouldn't disturb the batter while trying to remove tape from the white plastic. It worked like a charm.
I used ziploc bags with a hole cut in the corner to pipe the batter into the pans. I used Duncan Hines Orange and Devil's Food mixes, and they worked fine together; I was a little concerned about differences in consistency when I saw that one required less water than the other, but there was not a problem.
It would be great if the next checkerboard cake adventurer would figure out exactly how much batter to pour in each section of the three pans, and post the findings. Filling "2/3 full" didn't quite do it for me, as I was concerned about having enough batter for the inner and outer circles of the two cakes that were alike.
I saw references here to a recipe on the box that might be used for good results, but if there is one on my box, it's very well hidden.
However, if you're like me and refuse to be bettered by something as sad as this, you take a different approach. Using this insert as a "cookie cutter" of sorts will product the perfect cut outs to assemble a perfectly executed checkerboard cake. Hence at least 2 stars.
Hope it helps

found it hard to use but great to use as a cake cutter to make the checkerboard cake ...Published 1 day ago by Amazon Customer
It definitely takes some extra work. If you're using boxed mix buy three mixes to fill the pans and you'll want a thicker batter (to where it isn't dripping off the spoon). Read morePublished 2 days ago by Jillian
The plastic center slides around and doesn't lock into place. It makes it very difficult to have separate colors for the cake....it doesn't work!Published 10 days ago by David Potter
I am relatively skilled baker but these did. It work for me at all. Colors bled into one another after multiple attempts.Published 18 days ago by Jessica Paulson
I don't want to give it any stars! I have followed the instructions over and over and none of my cakes come out. The bottoms and sides burn, and the top is a huge dome! Read morePublished 1 month ago by Michelle J.
