Our kitchen lab experts conduct a number of cooking performance tests to assess how well the cake tins can:

  • release a delicate food
  • release a sticky food
  • brown evenly
  • produce a firm, fairly dry crumb on the base.
  • They also assess how easy the cake tins are to place in and out of the oven, and how easy they are to clean.
