I purchased a set of these silicone pans to try just because I was curious, and I am glad that I did. My set did have a loaf pan in it as well, and that one did okay for me but was so hard to clean. I think that in general these pans were harder for me to clean than a lot of people say they are, but maybe I was doing something wrong. The way they bake is great. They bake up perfectly and I just love that! You do need to put the pan on a metal baking sheet before putting it in the oven, so just keep that in mind. The silicone mat also is great to like a baking sheet with that has seen better days and turn it into a brand new surface. Overall, I really like these and think everyone should give the silicone a try! Ease of Cleaning These are easy to clean some say, but I had a hard time! Doesn't Stick Some of my food stuck a little bit especially in the loaf pan. But that is a pretty large pan to use, especially with the wobbly surface so to speak.
