Product Description

How do you like your muffins? With blueberries or oat bran, or maybe chocolate chips? One thing is certain, you want them beautifully golden, tender, and with a nicely domed top. An essential component in any baking endeavor is the bakeware ,and commercial quality sets the standard for durability and performance.

Perfect for savory dinner muffins, sweet breakfast muffins, or frosted birthday cupcakes, this 12-cup muffin pan offers the strength, durability, and reliability professional bakers have come to expect from Chicago Metallic for more than 100 years. If you're looking for a standard-size muffin pan to bake all your favorite recipes, this pan promises consistent, efficient, high-quality results.

Once available only to commercial kitchens, the pan is made of professional-weight aluminized steel, so it won't buckle or bend under intense heat and consistently provides fast and even heat distribution. Muffins brown quickly and evenly--there's no need to turn the sheet midway through baking. Bakers new to aluminized steel should pay extra attention at first, since this heavy-gauge pan bakes muffins more quickly than lighter-gauge varieties. The pan gradually darkens with use, which actually improves heat retention, but it may also require that oven temperatures are lowered by 25 degrees to ensure even browning. The traditional uncoated surface of this sheet makes it extra rugged and a great conductor of heat, but butter, oil, or parchment paper should be used to prevent foods from sticking. Greasing or lining the pan simplifies cleanup, since the pan will go from oven to dishwasher with no scrubbing in between. The shallow rim of the pan ensures a tidy oven as well--melting cheese and loose nuts stay contained. --Emily Wolf

Customer Reviews:

  • sturdy muffin pans
    I haven't baked with these pans yet, but they stack nicely, and feel very durable. Chicago Metallic has a good reputation....more info
  • Daughter Really Likes These
    I got 2 of these for my fresh out of college daughter. She says she really likes them a lot. I didn't want to get the teflon coated bakeware as I did not want to expose her or her pets to any teflon gasses when the pan heats up. I plan to get myself these same muffin tins soon. They remind me of the heavy duty muffin pan I loved to use on the farm so much....more info
  • The pan rusted
    This product disappointed me. The directions said it was dishwasher safe, so I ran it through the dishwasher prior to using it. When I took it out of the dishwasher I saw rust along the bottom of one whole side of the pan. I am in the process of returning this product and will purchase William Sonoma's Crown Muffin Pan instead....more info

  • Nice quality, but ridges around cups.
    I have not yet used this muffin pan; however, once I received it I was a bit unhappy to find that there are ridges around the edges of the cups. Since I frequently have overflows with my muffins, these ridges will make it harder to clean up. Other than that, the quality seems good. I like that they are not nonstick. They are not oversized cups - which is nice for portion control....more info

  • A keeper!
    This is an excellent muffin tin. Very heavy and durable with great performance. If you're used to the cheap, thin, non-stick muffin pans, prepare for a different experience! Everything I make comes out evenly baked and nicely golden without excessive browning, but it did take a few batches to learn how the thickness of the batter and the fullness of the cup affect the final product. The pan gets hot and retains its heat, so keep those pot holders handy.

    Non-stick spray works great, and if anything is stuck I just soak it for a few minutes. Nice to not have to worry about abusing it - it is a solid piece of steel! I expect to be using this forever.

  • great quality
    This muffin pan is great quality although not what I was expecting. I thought it was the crown only, but it is the crown abnd muffin combined. Nice pan....more info
  • Heavy duty pan
    In the usual Chicago Metallic style, this pan is very well built. Heavy, durable, won't warp in the oven. Yes, it costs more than the cheap ones, but this will perform much better and will last for a very long time. Once you use well-made tools, you'll not want to use anything else!...more info
  • Delightful muffin pan!
    Delightful muffin pan! Take your usual 12-cup standard muffin batter and pour it into one of these Chicago Metallic 6-cup Crown Muffin Pans. You get beautiful, mushroom-shaped muffns if your batter reaches to near the top or at the top. They come out very easily. I haven't used a batter that fills the cups less full, yet. Hopefully, they'll rise high enough to get the shape, too. ...more info
