I love Cook's Essentials cookware, so when they released their line of bakeware, I couldn't wait to try it. The nonstick coating looked like it worked just as well as the nonstick coating in their cookware. Once I got my bakeware set though, I was a bit disappointed.
When I first opened the package, I was thrilled. The pieces all had a good weight to the them and seemed like they were good quality. I washed the set so that it would be ready to use when I was ready to bake. I let them air dry and when I came back later I was upset at what I found.
Each piece had rusted! I immediately washed the pieces again and removed the rust. This time I dried each piece by hand. This prevented the rusting, but that would prove to be the least of my worries.
The first thing I baked was a layer cake. I allowed the cakes to cook and then flipped them onto a cooling rack to further cool. This is when I found out that the pieces were not truly nonstick. My cake had stuck in several places.
The cake pans did cleanup easily, but these pieces are really more trouble than they are worth. The rusting problem and having your baked goods stick to the pan is really annoying and I just cannot recommend this bakeware.
