KAF made By USA Pan

I just got my two loaf pans from King Arthur Flour. The are a heavyweight pan and I love them...much nicer than the aluminum pans I have been using. I'm going to slowly rebuild my baking pan selcetion from these.

Bakeware They are not cheap, but they are not too expensive, either. I am very happy with these pans.

Doesn't Chicago Metallic make these for KAF? I really like my CM bake ware.

I'm going to have to try something from that line. They look really nice.

I had a gift certificate to KAF and git them, just to try them out. I was very surprised at the quality and strurdiness. I think you will like them.

I have been wanting to try something from that line as well. I think that they make a couple pans for the Food Network line at Kohls too.

I'd like to know how the coating holds up. I don't like coatings on my pans because they scratch and peel so easily. I have a couple 8x8 wilton pans that are fairly new and are not holding up well, I use them for brownies quite often.

The website mentions this coating, I wonder if it is more durable than the traditional non stick coating.

I can't see or feel a coating. I did read that, but to me there does not seem to be anything to scratch or peel. I did scrape it with a fingernail on the outside bottom and nothing came up.

I am simply astounded by the quality of these pans. I'm wondering if it's a glaze like on bakery quality pans, those need to be reglazed about every two years, but they see a lot more use.
