This Nonstick Muffin Pan Won't Cling to Your Baked Goods—No Matter How Sticky
A good batch of muffins is all it takes to make a tough week a million times better. Aside from having that fantastic smell wafting through your home, you get a dozen single-serve treats within reach at all times. But if your cooking space is missing the right tool to make muffins, or you're constantly avoiding the one you already have because everything sticks to it, it might be time to direct your attention to this slick muffin tin that's earned over 3,000 perfect ratings.
USA Pan's muffin pan is changing the pop-out pastry game. The tray has room for 12 muffins, cupcakes, mini quiches, or whatever your heart desires and the nonstick surface won't get feisty when it's time to take them out. It's "unsentimental," according to one reviewer, meaning those clingy trays stand no chance against this one.
To buy: USA Pan Bakeware Cupcake and Muffin Pan, $25 (originally $30) at amazon.com
USA Bakeware's nonstick coating is free of BPA, PTFE, and PFOA, so you can slide those blueberry muffins out without worrying about anything else seeping into your baked goods. And, as reviewers noted, you really can count on its slippery surface.
"So I had made mini egg frittatas in my old muffin tin and trying to scrub the egg residue off was torture and I had vowed never to make them again until a friend told me about this brand of bakeware!" described a shopper. "I tried the exact same recipe with this muffin tin and the results were amazing! I only had to rinse the muffin tin with soapy water because nothing stuck to it at all."
Salted caramel brownies, egg muffins, s'mores, and raspberry Danishes were all no problem for this pan. With the tin's slick surface, you no longer have to rely on oiling up each individual holder or using paper liners. This cooking tool carries some weight, too, and won't bend, warp, or feel flimsy when it's lifted in and out of the oven.
"I have been baking for over 50 years, and this is the best pan I have ever used," wrote a satisfied shopper. "What makes it different? First, the pan is heavier, stronger, and more well made than some of my other pans. Second, I didn't grease the pans (as others have mentioned), and the muffins popped right out onto the counter after I let them rest for a couple of minutes."
Your recipe for the perfect chocolate cupcake or egg cup is already perfect, it just needs a pan that understands the ideal rules of baking. Shop USA Pan's anything-but-clingy muffin tin now while it's on sale.
