A local area garage sale facebook group has posting up for a lady selling of a lot of bakeware. The majority of the lot is cupcake tins in varying sizes and depth by the looks of it. There is also a set of 3 square cake pans. I'm waiting to hear what sizes they are but im curious if they are worth getting. The post says that they are older and in the pic a couple of the cupcake tins look a little tarnished.
Can something go wrong with old tins? Could they perhaps be made of a different metal that doesn't work as well as the new pans?
I'm also not sure cause it says they have removable bottoms?

This is the post:
BAKING DISHES....SOME ARE QUITE OLD SO MADE REALLY WELL, NAME BRANDS ARE MIRRO, BAKE-RITE TINWARE, AND EKCO, LOTS OF DIFFERENT SIZE AND DEPTH MUFFIN TINS AND A 3 PIECE SQUARE REMOVABLE BOTTOMS CAKE PAN SET, SOME MARKS BECAUSE OF THE AGE BUT MOST ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION, ASKING $12. FOR THE WHOLE LOT

Unless they're made of lead, which I doubt, they should be fine. For this price, you can't go wrong! icon_smile.gif

$12 FOR THE WHOLE LOT? ONLY $12? If you don't buy them, I will! icon_biggrin.gif

You should be fine. It is rare you would find square pans with removable bottoms. You can find circle ones but sounds like they are unique as well. The square ones would be great for cheesecakes as well as cakes.

As long as this lady is ok waiting untill sunday for me to come then they are MINE! lol i hope they work out for me.
I don't currently own any square pans so it will be nice to have the option. Covering a square with BC or fondant intimidate me to this will give me a chance to face my fear.
