IMHO, Wilton quality isn't all that impressive. I own items purchased at a restaurant supply store, and the quality is out of this world. I have pots and pans, jelly rolls, etc. The best part is that the prices are half of what you'd pay in the store.

I'd look up restaurant supply companies in your local yellow pages. I've shared this info with a few people (cooks and bakers) and they all come back to me in amazement.

I also have pans from different places. I have found that they are all pretty good quality. I did read somewhere something about shinny pans something having to do with longer bake times and about not baking evenly. How true that is Im not sure. I have a couple of pans from william sonoma those are heavy pans. I seem to like those best of all. LOL could be just because they are from WS. MC

i've used wilton and non-wilton pans for baking, and i've had good luck with both. frankly, i wouldn't buy a pan sight-unseen, by which i mean picking it up in my hands to feel the weight and examining the surface and edges (something tells me that the pans pictured in your link have a rolled edge that could be very sharp on the underside (i cut myself cleaning a round pan like that once), so i always like to know what i'm getting before i buy so there're no surprises). if you're able to physically visit a restaurant or bakery supply store, you'll be able to get all sorts of quality bakeware, and they'll probably be less expensive than Wilton, which is targeted at a specialty-hobby market, and thus tends to carry a premium price-tag.

Magic line Pansby Parrish are of excellent quality and they last a long, long time/ You can purchase these pans at any cake decorating supply store or on line. They are far superior to the Wilton Pans.
