If you like making layered cakes but hate having to fight to get them out of the baking pans chances are you aren't using the correct release spray or your non-stick pan needs to be replaced. That's how I came across the nine inch Indulgence pan from Wilton; while this does cost more than their other comparable cake pans I have never had any problems with cakes sticking to the inside of the pan. The downside is that if you are making a layered cake then you will need to make two or three individual cakes and that can be time consuming if you only have one pan at your disposal because you will need to wait for the cake to cool down before you flip it over or you could end up with a huge crack in the cake. This is a non-stick pan that I use mostly for making layered cakes but I have used it to make cookie pies and a small batch of brownies. I like that it is non-stick but you have to be careful with the utensils that you use when removing things from it and avoid cutting things inside the pan. I watched in complete horror when a friend picked up a knife and started cutting up the cake in to pieces so she could make a checkerboard design; not only did she end up with uneven pieces but she put some deep scratches into the bottom of the cake pan. One of the biggest problems with making a cake in a round cake pan is getting it to cook evenly; with some round cake pans you end up with a cooked center but dry edges or a seemingly perfect cake that has a raw spot in the middle. This does cook more evenly than other nine inch pans so it is a nice option if your oven isn't completely accurate in regards to the temperature setting.
