Looking at replacing and adding to my cake tin collection, some of which are perfectly seasoned and are keepers.


Interested in your recommendations on the brands do you use, and why?


Much appreciated!

Magic Line. They're the first kind I bought (from recommendations here) and I love them.

I love Magic Line, but they are a little pricey.  Taking my time buying the pieces.

ditto, ditto, ditto.  In fact I just threw away an old cake pan and replaced it with a magic line pan.  I couldn't figure out why one pan kept baking up perfect and the other pan was overbrowning.  Finally realized that my collection of pans had several different brands of pan.  Tossed the stupid one, and bought a new Parrish magic line pan.  problem solved.

Thank you every one for your recommendations.


I had noticed some good reviews for magic line.  I don't mind expensive if they last well and give consistently good results, I just spread out the purchases :-)

AMagic Line. They should last a lifetime.

I bought a few Wilton Performance pans, aluminum with the rolled edge, when I started baking. A few years later when I opened my bakery cafe, I bought several dozen more. I don't think Wilton has the best overall product-line quality, but forty years later my pans are still in excellent condition. 


Don't hate me. Just sharing my :cake: experience.

I love my Magic line pans especially for square cakes.  I have a few of the Pro Wilton and they are fine.  I only have round and specialty shape Wilton.

I think that it was more important to have matching pans, meaning the same brand, as I discovered that my two pans were actually a different weight, and a different height, probably a different thickness.  So that no matter where I put the pans in the oven,{ as I originally thought I'd developed a bad hot spot in my oven, thankfully I didn't  } they baked differently.


This only mattered with pans that I put in the oven all at once, such as 6", 8", 9" pans.  everything else only fits in my oven - one pan at a time.  So it makes perfect sense that your cake pans from Wilton have worded perfectly for you Mimi. I just can't image how I managed to get different brands of cake pans in my 6", 8", & 9" rounds.  it's a mystery..........

That is an excellent suggestion.  I never thought of that.  Thanks!

I think that we can readily get Wilton in Australia in various degrees of quality and cost.    If they are still going then that is an excellent recommendation.
