@thomasaelliott The two square pans are packaged together. If Meh sold them separately, they would have to separate them and repackage them for individual sale.
The hard part of repackaging is getting all of the safety labels right. Something bad happens when the pan gets to hot. What? With Teflon/PTFE pans, not only did the nonstick coating stop working when the pans got too hot, but it killed any birds in the house. These are PTFE free, so if they kill birds, it will be with a different mechanism.
I bought the black friday 10" copper frying pan knock off at macy’s for $8. Works pretty good. Can’t imagine why you would need 2 brownie pans or 2 square pans though. I mix and match set would be better.
I’d be afraid of copper leaching into the food. No adequate studies on it yet. - Increased levels of copper may cause a decrease in levels of zinc in the blood, triggering hyperactivity, skin problems and depression in some people. When wearing copper bracelets for long periods of time, increase your zinc levels by eating pumpkin seeds and oysters or by taking zinc supplements daily.
@katbyter Odds are you are exactly right, and making the mistake with the cooking spray makes sticking even worse. You know those Oh, crap! What have I done?! moments? Yeah. Learned the hard way to pay attention to what I was doing in the kitchen.
Why in the heck can you only buy two of either one instead of one of each? I clicked the buy button but I don’t need two square skillets with no lids and I can’t see myself having the need to make two pans of brownies at the same time at any point in my life. With your shitacular shipping they won’t be here until next month so I can’t even give the other one as a Christmas gift!
Was actually looking at these as some potentially cheap pan replacements over on morningsave to make use of the 20% off coupon. Surprised it’s actually cheaper over there. Both two packs for $39. The main reason I didn’t buy was due to getting two of the brownie pans. I would never be making that many brownies that I would need a second pan, so it’s just a wasted extra that I’d end up giving away most likely.
@therealjrn@wilstev I have several Wilton fancy cake pans. One that makes a cake in the shape of a rose, another that makes one in the shape of a castle. I make the castle one with white confetti cake in the summer and set it on a bed of light brown sugar as a sand castle. But the one that gets the most wows is the checkerboard cake.
I can’t find it again, but someone posted a comment about removing the brownies. Two words. Parchment paper. I love it, sometimes beautifully on everything I’ve tried. Im on the keto diet and I plan to the brownie pans for everything from quiche-type muffins to cheese crackers. Wish me luck.
I love that apparently it’s SOOOO hard to rail a spatula through a 9x13 pan of brownies to cut them up that someone is willing to spend an extra 10 minutes fucking with this Rube Goldberg contraption for poorer end results.
And then clean up after it.
Meh could knock the zero off that price and I still wouldn’t wasted the cabinet space on these things.
@Pufferfishy I think the idea is not to save on cutting up the brownies, but that each will have finished edges on all four sides. That’s not something I care about, but if I was doing bake sales on a regular basis I would.
@Pufferfishy I wavered quite a bit on spending a Jackson on these. I thought they were quite a bit gimmicky. But thanks to @moondrake turning my pretty little head with her checkerboard cake, my heart is filled with dreams of checkerboard sheet cakes.
@RiotDemon IANABaker - but this doesn’t seem like it should be that hard to do. Make a couple pan cakes, cut them into bars, assemble.
Am I missing something??? The examples provided see to be working really hard at what seems a simple concept. (not to mention it clearly helps knowing how to bake a cake without ruining it before it’s even out of the pan)
