The only pans I get precious about are my Invictas (I am only a hobby baker) I find they are heavyweight enough for my fruit cakes and give nice sharp edeges/corners. They cost £20 - 30 brand new in the Uk...other makes brand new might be £10 -15. I have to watch that Hubby doesn't 'Tidy Up' the cupboard and place them near an outside wall (Risk of rust) My Dad 'Tidied Up' my Mothers and took them downstairs to the cellar!!! They went rusty and she went livid at him!!!!

I'm just a hobby baker. I have an "eclectic" set of pans.

 

I started with mixed collection of metal pans bought in a giant box set from Amazon.com. when I moved to Australia  Then, I have a couple pyrex round and rectangular plans given to me by my husband's grandmother, including two pie plates. These are nice _old_ pyrex and very sturdy/dependable. Along with cakes, I like to make pies, so pie plates are very important. I also have a couple large round oven-safe ceramic pans, two round metal cookie sheets, and a round pizza sheet (metal with small holes) made to fit specially in my convection microwave. I use the pizza sheet for bread rolls and artisan loaves of bread since I can't find a round pizza stone (and the small square ones are too small). The two round ceramic pans double as large diameter cake pans (when I want to make layer cake for a shower or other big gathering). It's a bit fussy to bake in ceramic but I've gotten used to them. My collection finishes up with three 9" pans my husband bought in a specialty cook shop but I didn't recognize the brand at the time (and I've forgotten since then).
