I am planning on buying a set of square cake pans. Amazon has a deal right now that when you buy 3 the 4th one is free. I was thinking of buying either magic line or fat daddio, I have heard very good things about both.
Opinions? Has anyone used both? Which should I get? thanks
The only two words in square cake consideration conversation that you need to pay any attention to:
Magic. Line. Magic Line.
Magic Line - I Love them!!!!!
Howdy. I'm a hobby baker and really agonized over whether to get Magic Line (the absolute best because they have sharp corners, but you PAY a LOT), or Fat Daddios. I ended up getting Fat Daddio's because I could purchase sets for $80 that contain: Square 2 inch deep EVEN Sizes Pan Set by Fat Daddio's: includes 4x4, 6x6, 8x8, 10x10, 12x12, 14x14 and 16x16 inch cake pans. I bought them from sugar craft . com
I like to have 2 of each size cake pan to reduce baking time, so for me it was a cost decision. If I'd ordered Magic Line I would have paid more for fewer pans. I ordered my first set about 5 months ago, and just received my 2nd set. I'm very happy with the pans. The Fat Daddio's don't have a knife edge corner, but that's ok with me.
I love my Fat Daddio pans!
If I could turn back the clock 3 years to when I started buying pans, I would order nothing BUT Majic Line pans. They are a dream to use.
Try ebay for either Magic line or Fat Daddio. Just make sure you know the normal price so you don't over bid.
Magic Line. Forget all other brands when it comes to cake pans.
