"Very disappointed" star star_border star_border star_border star_border Purchased one of these tins on recommendation from staff member in store. Read the instructions on the packaging and then baked a sponge cake ready for my husbands birthday, but when I tried to take the cake out of the tin it just ripped the sides of the cake to shreds, it wasn't as non-stick as it is claimed to be. Very disappointed and won't be purchasing any more. Mrs BOYLE - 10 August 2021 support_agent A note from the team We're sorry to hear this pan hasn't worked well for you. Although it isn't necessary to line the pans we'd suggest on first use to grease well with either unsalted butter, lard or margarine. We'd also advise to allow the cake to cool completely so it shrinks from the sides. As the pans are metal utensil friendly you can carefully run a knife a knife between the cake and pan wall before pushing out the cake.
