First let me say I have never seen a pan that was packed so well! I actually had a hard time getting it out of the box. I actually liked that because it meant it would not be broken when it arrived.
I loved the idea of the handles on this pan, it was so easy to wash, to pull out of the oven and then to rewash.
I used it twice tonight that is how much I LOVE IT!
First recipe was banana cake for my daughter
I could not believe how well it pulled away from the pan, it was evenly cooked and it came out nice and clean.
To be the biggest reason I love this pan is the handles, it really makes a huge difference to have an easy way to maneuver it. I love that it cleans so easily, it also cooled pretty quick too.
If there was one con it would be that it is so big that I will have to try and find somewhere to store it, it is a little heavy so if you have trouble holding on to things it might not work as well as some glass pans the same size. I love the color and the stoneware feel to it though.
I am betting I purchase a set of Rachel Ray's smaller pans because I could see using them several times a week. As for this 9 by 13 one, I can't wait to make a lasagna in it.
