USA Pan Round Cake Pan : The USA Pans Cake Pan is constructed of heavy-gauge aluminized steel, the preferred material in professional kitchens. The heavy-gauge aluminized-steel bakeware by USA Pans helps ensure remarkable durability and consistent distribution of heat for the life of the cake pan. An important and unique feature of this pan is its corrugated surface design. Corrugation maximizes the cake pan's strength and prevents warping, denting and other effects of everyday use, while circulating air all around food, providing a continuous-even baking temperature for uniform results. Plus, it also minimizes surface contact which translates into evenly baked cakes that are easily released. Rolled edges and internal steel wire add strength to this remarkable cake pan. The Proprietary Americoat Plus, a nontoxic clear coating, creates a silicone nonstick surface considered the best in the industry, releasing foods easily and helps prevent over-baking. Americoat is an eco-friendly coating and is PTFE- and PFOA-free. Corrosion-resistant cake pan will not warp. Ideal for single- and two-tiered cakes, bars, cobblers and quiches.

I used my new pans to bake a three layer German chocolate cake. They worked beautifully, the cakes slipped out of the pans and they were easy to clean. I measured the cake batter into each pan and they all cooked evenly.
