Half the size of typical mini muffin pan,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: HIC Essentials Silicone 24-Cup Mini Muffin Pan (Kitchen)
As far as use, this pan works nicely. I bought it to freeze homemade baby food. I've frozen pureed squash and breastmilk and also baked cookie cups in it and everything popped out easily. HOWEVER, the description doesn't tell you these cups are half the size of typical mini muffin pans. I thought in comparison, this was a good deal for a pan with a capacity of 24 oz. But, each cup only holds 1T, or 1/2 ounce--total capacity just 12 ounces. I could have gotten the Wilton one with 12-1 ounce cups for half the price. I'm irritated that the description is a bit misleading and at a time when money is tight, and I'm making baby food to save money, I paid double the price I should have.

Great review! You need to have size of the container and the capacity of each mold and total for all of them. That us essential information! Shame on you!

For baby food I recommend silicone ice cube trays. They hold one ounce and are more space efficient, you can fit more squares into a small tray than round cupcake shapes. Tovolo 80-12007 Perfect Cube Silicone Ice-Cube Trays, Set of 2, Dark Blue - you get 2 trays with 15 cubes each for $12. I used them even when my son was older to freeze fruit purees to mix with plain yogurt, no need for buying sugared yogurts that way.

Thanks for the suggestion! I'm looking to buy this type of product for a friend, and was looking for a better option. :)

This was very helpful. I thought maybe a tablespoon would be okay because my current mini pan is very small but it turns out mine holds just about 3 tablespoons so I'm glad I actually went and checked it out before ordering.

This is the information I need too. I make homemade stock and like to freeze some in little pucks to stir fries or pan sauces. But 1/2 ounce capacity is really smaller than I need. Someone else commented that they use this pan for making chocolates. I might consider this pan for that use too.

In answer to a Question about this pan, a person who bought it said each cavity was 3/4" deep, 1 1/4" diameter bottom, 1 1/2" diameter top, with a 4 teaspoon capacity. That would mean a 3 teaspoon (1 tablespoon) fill when used for baking to allow for rising. That information squares with my research as to the size of a STANDARD mini muffin pan. I have not bought it as I'm still researching for quality, etc.

Buttons...1 T is the recommended amount of batter to put in a regular mini muffin pan--but the total capacity is 2T. It is not recommended to fill a muffin pan to the brim, because it will typically overflow. Also, just using observation, you can tell these cups are much smaller than my other metal mini muffin pans.
