I need to get a new square cake pan and have heard rave reviews about Magic Line. However, my local store only carries the Calphalon Commercial square and rectangles. I noticed that the sides of the pan angle out a bit. The owner said this is because they want the pans to be able to nest on store shelves. So, the cake would still need a little trimming on the sides to make it straight. Are the Magic Line pans like this?

No, they are straight. I love Magic Line. They are the only pans I have.

Just last week I got in an order for all new pans, round, square and oblong - all Magic Line. The sides are all perfectly straight. I keep taking them out to play with them.

Here's a link with pics showing you the comparison between FD and ML pans and cakes that were baked in them:

I love my ML's too!

The only ML pans I have are the square and I used them for the first time a week ago. WOW! Cakes came out great, baked soooo evenly and yes, the sides are straight.

Grandmom - can you please tell me where you ordered your ML pans from? I checked Jesters as that is where I got my square ones from but they do not have 2" round in the size I want. Which is nothing new as they don't have half of what they show on their website.

Wow! That photo comparison was neat. I guess my Christmas list is expanding...

Peridot,

I bought most of my pans at www. cooksdream . com. They have a very nice selection. I got the even and odd 2" rounds from 6-16, the squares from 6-16, and three oblongs. I at first did not order the 2, 3, 4 , 5 rounds then regretted it and found those four in a mini-tier set at Amazon.

When I entered prices from several sites in a spreadsheet, CooksDream came out the least expensive overall. Anyone ordering a bunch should try a discount code of UB15.
