Bought 2 of these cake tins, not realising they were loose-bottomed (doesn't say this on the description).I was disappointed as I wanted solid tins, but decided to keep them anyway.Tried them out the other day, but struggled to handle them as my hands are not very good (I have multiple sclerosis). If you particularly want loose-bottomed tins with straight sides, then these are very good (as you'd expect), but this should have been made clear on the description. I may not use them again.
A note from the team
We're sorry to hear you've been disappointed with this product. The currently trend for bakeware is the loose bottomed style to ensure the food is easily accessible and slides from the non stick surface, and without the need for cake liners. We'll be in touch soon to help.
