Good build quality but difficult to handle”
I just bought two pans this evening and have made four batches of madeleines trying slightly different recipes to see the differences. My impressions are the following: the build quality seems very good - these are solid and feel built to last. However I found there were two things that let them down: firstly I found them awkward to handle in the oven as there's no-where obvious for your oven gloves to grip and it's quite easy to inadvertently slip an oven-gloved thumb in the cake mix and secondly, the shell indentations are very faint, too faint in my view. I would want to test other pans.

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry about the shell indentations being faint. It may need firmer pressure from you when putting the mix into the mould. This should give a better finish. We'll be in touch shortly.
Bought this on special offer and as I had a coupon got it for free well that's what I told my hubby. He bought me a cook book I wanted for mothers day and Madelines were in it so just had to have the tin. Hubby couldn't believe how sturdy the tin is and no doubt it will last a lifetime. I made some Madelines and hubby and son polished them off in an afternoon with coffee from the Nespresso machine (another fab Lakeland product). Having friends over for coffee so more Madelines to make and they look so pretty and impressive too and the tin makes it so easy as they just slide out no problem.

I made some lemon and also chocolate madeleines using my 2 new trays. I followed the instructions and buttered the moulds well and also chilled the batter for a while which made it easier to handle. They turned out perfect. After baking the trays were easy to clean and dry. I had loads of compliments for the madeleines they looked and tasted so delicious.

Brilliant madeleine tin!”
Great quality, lovely results first time but a couple of observations: This pan makes fairly large madeleines - about 3" long by 2" across, BUT it holds heat so well that, as mentioned by another reviewer, madeleines may need less time in the oven than recipes indicate. And check tin dimensions - I've lived with ovens that would not have been wide enough for this tin.

I received the madeleine tin this morning and couldn't wait to use it. It is absolutely brilliant. Well worth every penny. They came out perfect very time. Well done Lakeland.

...to have everything I can think of needing! I wanted a madeleine pan as soon as i read a great recipe and didn't even bother searching on google, just straight to good old Lakeland and there it was. It turned out excellent madeleines of course.

Great quality, perfect madeleines every time”
The pan is very thick, madeleines come out easily. I found that when a recipe specifies different baking times for "small" and "large" madeleines, using this pan requires to adhere to the "small" estimate to avoid burning.

I had been looking for a madeleine tin for a job I needed to do for awhile and on seeing this I just couldn't resist. It has been excellent, producing perfect madeleines every time. They have lovely shapes to them and the pan never fails to be non-stick, brilliant!

lovely little cakes”
excellent tin no sticking i did use the cake release. the only thing i do find with a lot of the specialist tins is you never get a recipe with them.

I've used this tin a couple of times now, and the madeleines turn out beautifully each time. Such a good quality and sturdy tin. I'm going to buy more tins in this range as I am so impressed!

I've used this pan many, many times and it still looks as good as new. It's heavyweight and easy to clean. The detail on the madeleines when they are turned out is fabulous. Deserves every one of the 5 stars

I love this pan so much.....especially since I asked the chef at Lakeland for a recipe! Being a heavyweight, it hasn't warped and the madeleines have come out wonderfully every time. Thoroughly recommended

Grand not petit”
by Rachel McAuley
I was a little disappointed when I opened my order to discover the madeleine pan was for large madeleines. I had bought this product to make petit fours. I guess they will just have to be grand fours!!! On a positive note the mini morsel set is great for making mini bakewell tarts etc!

I have not stop using this tray since I purchased it, makes wonderful Madeleine's and the pattern detail is good. Much cheaper at Lakeland than anywhere else but the quality matches
