Calphalon 12 Cup Muffin Pan - Excellent!,
This review is from: Calphalon Commercial Bakeware 12-Cup Muffin Pan (Kitchen)
The Calphalon Commercial Nonstick Bakeware collection is excellent. I recommend them without reservation. I really like the 6 and 12 cup muffin pans. I have one 12 cup pan and two 6 cup pans. Sometimes it is nice to have a 6 cup for small batches of blueberry or corn muffins, so rather than buying two 12 and one 6, I think it makes more sense to have one 12 and two 6. If you are making a traditional cake mix it is just the right amount for 24 regular size cup cakes. Occasionally, my husband prefers cup cakes to a regular size cake, no crumbs or cutting and cup cakes are easy to take with you.
One note: you may want to check on your cup cakes / muffins a couple of minutes early. I have noticed that cakes are done a little quicker in pans with a dark finish. Many newer recipes will indicate the timing for dark finish bakeware. These pans are also a breeze to clean, just a little soap and water and you are done. Wonderful Pans! Highly recommended!
Also, read the Calphalon brochure in the box, if you plan to nest this pan with others make sure to put a paper towel between them to prevent any damage to the nonstick coating. And, this pan is not dishwasher safe.
I wouldn't even trade it for an All Clad bake pan, all my cookware is All Clad and I love it but nothing beats high quality, heavy duty Nonstick bakeware!

Helpful review. I have to say that the last part of your comment about All-Clad bakeware is short-changing both yourself and the All-Clad bakeware line though. I own all the All-Clad bakeware and dream of the day they ever release a stainless muffin pan and bundt pan. All their bakeware is incredible and worth every penny! Everything I bake comes out flawless and they make me look like a pro every time. Lightly grease the pan and nothing sticks. Stainless steel is far healthier to cook/bake with than nonstick. Sounds like you love your All-Clad cookware based on your comment, which I could not agree with you more. You ought to treat yourself to their bakeware (and you can put them in the dishwasher). I doubt you'd be disappointed or feel a bit guilty about betraying your beloved nonstick. I banished all my non-stick pans to Goodwill without even a sigh of remorse. ;)
