I can use these for a variety of uses, especially individual servings but I wish they were a bit larger, 8 to 10 oz. would work better for individual soufflés, pies, or other entrees.

These are the best pans I have ever used. Bake evenly, no stick, easy clean up; do not put in dishwasher. I have only owned this type of pan for a little more than a year, so can't say how durable the non-stick surface is. Pans are heavy and don't warp easily.
