I thought I saw something once but I can't find it now. So do you have or did you have any Fat Daddio's pans? Do you love them or do you hate them? Do you have any reaon why you think they are great or terrible? If you hate them what is your favorite pan brand? Does your favorite brand change with different shaped pans? TIA!!!
Seriously, you should do a search on this because there are a TON of rather contentious conversations about pans.
However, you asked for an opinion, so here's mine. I haven't tried Magic Line but I have tried Fat Daddio. I have one set of 9" FD rounds and I LOVE them!
They bake faster than other pans which can leave the edges over-baked. However, since I've begun using Bake Even strips there is no longer much difference from ML.
I do prefer the straight sides of ML square pans, though. But you can put FD square pans in the dishwasher...
I did try a search or two before posting I even spelled it wrong just incase and still didn't turn up anything..LOL maybe if I search just pans. Thank you for your insight and shareing what you think!
I love my FD pans. The cakes come out very nicely, no sticking. They do need to bake at a lower temperature. The only thing I don't care for is the square pans do not have sharp square corners, though this can be remedied by making square corners with the icing.
I like them. I have not tried magic line so I can't compare then.
Ya just have to bake them on low temps and use a heating core. 3 nails in a half sheet did the trick for me.
I have Magic Line, reg Wilton, heavier Wilton, other, and Fat Daddio. I don't have any problem with the Fat Daddio's at all. I like them plus, I really like the price compared to Magic Line! I was more than happy to see them show up at my cake supply shop.
I don't have to bake at lower temps with mine, they seem to work just as well as the others. for me anyway..
As with all my pans, I don't put my FDs in the dishwasher for cleaning, I do that by hand.
One more thing that may or may not matter to you- ML= made in USA
FD= made in China. Probably why there is a price difference. I prefer ML for that reason, but wish I could put them in the dishwasher like my FD's.
