The nonstick surface of this pan, which can be used for muffins, cupcakes, mini-quiches, rolls or even mini-meatloaf, makes paper baking cups optional and cleanup easier. If you choose only one pan with nonstick, let it be the muffin pan, since cleanup can be tougher with this type of pan, as it is really twelve little pans in one. For even heating and browning, the pan is made of heavy weight carbon steel. Perfect even baking performance. Lifetime customer satisfaction.
