I received this as a gift from my mother. When I first saw it I thought to myself what was my mother thinking. It is a pan that looks like a maze. The reason behind it is so your brownies all have that chewy edge to them. You can use any recipe that requires a 13x9 baking pan in this pan.
I admit the pan sat in my cabinet for a while. One day I decided to see just how this thing worked. I made a batch of standard brownies. The brownies baked evenly and they were nice and chewy, every one of them. My whole family loved the brownies that came out of this pan.
Since then I have tried different cookie bar recipes and my famous cherry fudge brownies. I think everything bakes better in this pan. With a standard pan sometimes you can get hard edges that you have to cut around, you will not have that problem with this pan! I do not use my regular baking pan anymore to make brownies or cookie bars.
I have been thinking of trying a cake recipe using this pan. I haven't yet, but I bet it will be good.
I did try my vegetable lasagna in this pan and it turned out great. Again it was evenly baked and no hard, crusty edges.
This pan is very sturdy and very easy to clean. I love the quality of the pan.
Another nice feature is it comes with a little spatula. It is the perfect size to get through the channels of the pan.
I really love my pan, it maybe be funny looking but it really works! I have been hinting to my mother that I would like another one of these for Christmas.
