This tin was great for a start but over time has been disappointing. It was very non stick but as a previous review once something spilt on it in the oven it hardened on and wouldn't come off so I'm left with a tray that is covered in marks and which needs a bit of baking paper put on it to stop things sticking.

I can't praise these highly enough. Nothing sticks. I used to avoid baking biscuits because of the hassle, but these are hassle free. No lining, no oiling, cook evenly, nothing sticks, and then they clean beautifully! What more could I ask for? Well, beyond a small size too, which I've just come to the site to see if such a thing is available :-)

The best thing in my cupbaord.”
It never, ever sticks and I don't have to grease or line it. It is indeed a baking genius.

Disappointing - not up to scratch”
by Reb Deacon
I ummed and ahhed about buying these, but after feeling how heavy they were, took the plunge and bought two. Unfortunately, they do 'pop' and warp temporarily in the oven (first disappointment, as I wanted a substantial non-warp tray) - it is their performance in the oven that I need; not the fact that they straighten out again when cool. The first few times I used them, yes, they were spectacularly slippy (almost too much on one occasion! ha ha), but a few months on (of very careful rinsing and storage) and now they do stick every time. Next time, I will stick to Mermaid hard anodised :(

I bought this product as I wanted to stop using so much baking paper when making biscuits and cookies having to line the baking trays. I have been so pleased with this product, I have baked all sorts on this sheet from cookies to pizzas and nothing has stuck to it yet, slides off effortlessly. Would definitely recommend.

Non-stick brilliant but check size”
by Mrs Valerie Cornall
I bought two of these trays and am very pleased with the excellent non-stick coating but was disappointed that because of the handles it is difficult to fit them into my standard sized Stoves oven. When closing the oven door I have to push it hard against the bakind tray which twists the tray slightly and allows me to shut the door, not sure this is good for the tray. Such a shame as otherwise this product is great.

Good for cookies not for mernigues”
by Mrs Edwards
I have been quite impressed by these sheets and have used them a lot for baking cookies and biscuits without the need for baking paper. However, this week when I attempted to cook two large meringues and I was so disappointed when I removed them from the oven to find they were stuck fast, and the meringues were sadly ruined in the process of trying to remove them. It took a great deal of soaking to remove the remainder of the meringues as I was very conscious of not wanting to scratch or mark the sheets in anyway. I then had to remake them and using baking paper but luckily all worked fine…!

Excellent product, I have been using it weekly for a while now and it is as non stick as ever. Would definitely recommend it

I bought 2 of these trays for baking biscuits which need to be completely glazed in milk and I did not want to have to keep using baking parchment. To my disappointment the milk sticks to the trays and splashes of milk 'bake on' and do not come off. These trays have lived in my cupboard barely used once I realised they were not what I wanted and just recently I put them in the bin. They may be great if you want to cook an egg on them as per your ad, but since I wanted to put milk glazed biscuits on them they sadly were a waste of money.

Not very pleased”
by Mrs Findlay
On 1st use, this tray seemed really good, but further uses have led to the tray being rather difficult to clean. It does warp in the oven and because the non-stick coating is so good, the slope after it warps means the food moves around a bit. The non-stick aspect is great, but the tray is not as easy to clean as it should be. I bought 2 of these and I probably would have been better with a different range.

by Miss Stuckey
I was very sceptical, didn't fully believe it would work but this product does exactly what it says. I bought this to make my scones without them sticking to the tray and they quite literally slid off the tray without any effort. First time I used it one scone slid off and dropped on the floor so it definitely works! Amazing product for baking, especially scones.

Disappointed after 3rd use”
by Mrs Browne
I purchased this tray on 11th May 2011 & the first couple of times of usage it was great! The scones & sausage rolls just slid off. I agree with some other customers that the egg or milk glaze that dripped onto the tray did cause some staining that was difficult to remove. I have just used the tray for cornish pasties & they stuck dreadfully, in fact out of 8 I only managed to get 2 off in one piece. I was very disappointed as I bake for a local coffee shop & will now have to make some more - but if I do use this tray again it will be with baking paper.

Disappointed with this product!”
I used this baking sheet for the first time today, and I'm very disappointed. It flexed in the oven! I was only cooking apple pies so the oven wasn't really hot either. Already contacted Lakeland via email to ask the procedure for returning - awaiting a response.

It started off well!”
by Cat Palmer
I was initially very pleased with this baking sheet as the non-stick coating is very good indeed. After a few months' of use, though, the baking sheet became badly marked and nothing would remove the stains; Lakeland kindly supplied me with a replacement but, a couple of months later, the same thing has happened and the baking sheet has also started to warp badly when put in the oven. Unsurprisingly, I have not opted for a third replacement when offered! Lakeland's customer service remains as excellent as ever: it's a shame this product doesn't match the company's high standards.

AS GOOD AS THEY SAY”
This is every bit as good as they say it is. Admittedly I haven't had it that long but have used it a fair few times and it's just like new. Such a good idea too to have that handle so you actually have something to get hold of when lifting the tray out of the oven. Will definitely buy more from this range.

I love this product as nothing sticks to it and it hasn't bent. However, It is really slippy so be careful as when I pulled it out of oven my pasties fell off it! :) Washes easily too

The non stick qualities of this product are fine but why put this onto a cheap tray which bends and warps even at relatively low temperatures? I tried cooking oven chips at 170oC and found the flat tray had become a curved one. I also purchased the shallow baking tray in this series and have also found the same problem. I feel I have wasted my money.

Not what it says on the tin!”
I bought this a while back and have only just got round to writing about it. It warps in the oven and I have to wash several times to get the stubborn baked on food off - if it comes off, mine is covered in marks that cannot be got off without the help of a scourer which I haven't done - yet!!! Feel mislead as this was marketed as the answer to a bakers dream - limited cleaning.

Not as good as it used to be”
by Rhian Morton
When I first discovered the bakingenius trays I bought a few of them as they seemed so good. Unfortunately they were too good to be true. They are all now covered in brown burnt on marks which won't come off, are starting to rust, and the silicone is starting to peel off one of the trays. We're moving house soon, and these will definitely not be moving with us.

I like the design of this baking sheet, but the first time I used it for oven chips, it bent so much that it almost fell out of the oven when I opened the door. It still bends but not so much. However, it is not as non-stick as I expected and stains from the cooking do not come off. I have not dared use a scourer on it. Today I heated up a pizza which stuck fast at one point and it was difficult to remove the residue without using any sort of scourer. There are also brown marks from the cooking which do not come off.
