Baking Pans

Let's talk baking pans like muffin pans, etc.

I need new ones, bad! I want something excellent in quality that I won't have to replace for a long while. I was looking into Williams-Sonoma gold touch series.

Does anyone have these or any other recommendations?

Re: Baking Pans

My mom has the goldtouch muffin pans. They are pretty nice. I suspect they will hold up well and over time, but that would necessitate never using metal tools around them because I can see them scratching.

I'm about to buy these

I can let you know how they hold up in a few years They feel nice and substantial though.

I love my Wilton ones. However...the dollar tree near me has some that are quite awesome. I have a huge supply of theirs and I've had them for 3-4 years so far. No discoloration, no problems...nothing. S I always recommend those as well.

Ours doesn't have any pans, but that's neat you found great ones at Dollar Tree of all places!

I'm still shopping.

To the pp who's mom has the gold touch, did she notice a major difference in comparison to other pans?

Re: Baking Pans

For the goldtouch, she replaced pans that were REALLY old. I seem to remember her telling me she got them as a wedding present (so, 1979). I don't know if that's the best comparison

Since this thread, I have seen the box set in the store as an "open box" price of like $70-$75 so if you have an actual store near you, you may want to check.

Talk about getting your money's worth! Haha!

I have a store local to me, and most the reviews seem pretty great. I think I may take the plunge if nothing else catches my attention.
