Wanted to get my baking mojo back. These tins were recommended to me by a pro artisan baker. Used them for the first time tonight with a really difficult spelt dough. The bread was beautifully risen and baked. Came out of the sturdy tins straight away and effortlessly. Must have excellent heat conductance as well as being tough and will lasat a lifetime. Superb product. One word of warning though: the difficult-to-remove plastic hanging loops are NOT silicon, NOT mentioned on the packaging but commonsense says that they should be removed. Try not to break a nail or scratch the tin, though!
