What brand of square/rectangle baking pans do y'all use to get sharp edges? Where do you buy them at reasonable prices? I have all Wilton pans from back in the day (pre-Cake Central) when I thought Wilton products were the bomb! icon_lol.gif I can't seem to get a square corner if my life depends on it. icon_mad.gif I'm thinking I need new pans, but everything is sooooo expensive!

Thanks for any help you can give.

I have mostly Magic Line and definitely do prefer them, but there are some other brands of similar quality. You just need to make sure they are a heavy gauge and have sharp corners, and straight sides.

I use magic line and love them. You always get the true corners with the magic line pans.

Magic line are the best if you are looking for sharp corners. They are welded so they are a little harder to clean but they have sharp corners.

Thanks. I may order one Daddio and one Majic Line and compare.

I am a Magic Line addict.......other then the occasional Wilton round or petal, it's all I use. I especially like their squares because of their sharp corners.

I just learned a little trick to get really sharp corners yesterday. Normally, I just spray with Pam and line with parchment but I noticed the corners were getting mangled so I decided to brush all the right angle edges, including corners, with crisco and then dusted with flour. The cake came out looking like a perfect box!

I will never do it with Pam again. And I am thinking that this extra step is a lifesaver in any shaped pan to get those nice, sharp edges.

I replaced all my square rectangle pans with magic line and fat daddios, all their shapes have been wonderful and true to pan shape, corners and all. the cheapest I find them and with low shipping is here. They have all the 2,3 and 4 inch ones you could want, all the shapes actually.
Great customer service too.

I have a mix of fat daddios and magic line pans and I like them both just fine. Other than the fact that the magic lines are a little bit heavier and they turn colors, I find they perform the same. The fat daddio's have a nice sharp corner, even though it looks like they might have a little bit of a rounded edge.
