An Italian, married to an Englishman, I eat panettone in Italia ( all year round) yet have never baked my own, but always wanted too. Longing for home I bought a tin and made my first one yesterday, it worked beautifully, and was worth the wait. The tin is easy to use, and moulds the panettone beautifully. The tin lines well ( I recommend this, as do the manufacturers instructions) and the tin fits conveniently into a home oven. Price of the tin is good, and I can see that the design is well conceived and classic in shape, is authentic. Brioche, Sicily Lemon bread are next. Ciao!
